Sapphire plug-in rentals

GenArts has announced a monthly rental option for its flagship plugin effects, Sapphire. The plugins can be rented for $170 per month; far less than the $1699 purchase cost of the plug-in for After Effects or Final Cut Pro. This option is designed to allow artists who work on a project basis to avoid purchasing the costly full license of the Adobe After Effects plug-in or an Apple Final Cut Pro FxPlug. GenArts allows rental users to apply up to two months of rental fees as credit towards purchasing a permanent license of Sapphire.

GenArts Sapphire consists of more than 200 image processing and synthesis effects plug-ins such as Glows, EdgeRays, LensFlare, Lightning, FilmEffect, Warps and Textures. The effects are categorized in each application by Generators, Filters, and Transitions. The plug-in is available to purchase for Adobe After Effects, Autodesk, Avid, OFX, Shake and Apple Final Cut Pro. Rentals are only available for the After Effects and Final Cut Pro versions of Sapphire.
