Simulate: Camera for CS4
Digieffects has published a new plug-in collection, Simulate: Camera, intended for the video software in Adobe's Creative Suite 4. The plug-ins are intended to simulate various camera and film errors, which can add interest to footage that is otherwise too sanitized. Archive is used to reproduce various decay and contamination effects, while Overexpose is able to ramp up highlights and generate flickering.
Destabilize, finally, is used to reproduce camera shake, as if the original cameraman was in motion. Presets in the collection are carried between programs, and a Randomizer option can be used to combine several effects simultaneously and adjust them as necessary. Simulate: Camera is a $100 download.
