Sapphire for Avid v3.0

GenArts has published v3.0 of its Sapphire plug-ins for Avid editing systems, specifically Symphony, NewsCutter and Media Composer. The focus of the update is on its 36 new effects, such as TVDamage, which reproduces broadcast artifacts like static and ghosting. Many are divided into specific themes, such as wipe and dissolve transitions, or texture- and Z-buffer-based effects. Some also attempt to recreate specific mediums, such as the Technicolor 2Strip and 3Strip plug-ins.

The company says it has also improved Glares and RackDefocus, and introduced some 15 new LensFlares which can also be tweaked with new parameters. More parameters have been added to effects such as Glint, Glow, EdgeFlash and DistortChroma. The v3.0 plug-ins cost $1,800 for Media Composer, $2,800 for Symphony, NewsCutter, Media Composer and DS Assist, or $4,800 for DS and DS/Symphony. Owners of v2.x can upgrade for prices between $600 and $1,600.
