Simulates fog and haze atmospheric conditions
Digieffects has launched Atmosphere, a new After Effects plug-in for simulating atmospheric conditions. The plug-in is capable of generating haze and fog effects within videos, while several configuration options allow users to adjust the effects depending on lighting and distance to the camera. Layers that are further away from the camera show a heavier haze/fog effect than the layers that are closer to the camera. This effect is also applied to parts of layers, resulting in greater immersion depending on which areas of the layer are closer to the camera.
Atmosphere is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and priced at $50. It also comes bundled with Trapcode Lux for $220, or in the company's Megasuite that includes all of the Digieffect's plugins (except for FreeForm AE) and is priced at $800.
