Company will add 64-bit support to 3 other plugins
Three new visual effects plug-ins have been announced by Digieffects, with a formal launch scheduled for the National Association of Broadcasters' NAB Show next week. FreeForm 3D Mesh Warp, FreeForm 3D Displacer, and Damage 2.0 will all support 64-bit operation in various applications. FreeForm 3D Mesh Warp adds a 3rd dimension to After Effects' built-in mesh warp. Users can choose to divide the image into rows and columns before manipulating control tangents or creating cylinders, curves, ribbons, folding cards, and any other 3D shapes. It will retail for $100.
FreeForm 3D Displacer adds 3D displacement mapping to to After Effects. Customers can also use mesh subdivision to increase or decrease the density of their mesh/anti-aliasing settings, and then switch to a refined result later. The plug-in will cost $100.
Damage 2.0, which focuses on adding artifacts, interference or otherwise skewing video for a low-grade effect, adds destabilize and overexpose options and support for 32-bit-per-channel performance. Damage 2.0 works with After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, Edius,
Combustion and Boris RED. The plug-in will ship in April for $100.
Digieffects will also update its Camera Mapper, Falloff Lighting and Aged Film to 64-bit compatibility soon -- the upgrades will be free of charge.
The NAB Show in Las Vegas runs from April 12-15, 2010 -- the Digieffects booth will be in the Plugin Pavilion, Booth SL4228.
