Update adds improved interface, lens adjustments

HumanSoftware has upgraded its photographic effects plug-ins, HSC Edit, for Apple's Aperture software. The set is spread across 14 modules featuring more than 5000 individual effects. Each tool provides a wide range of manual variations and can be applied to a single image or processed across a larger batch. The modules include effects organized around color adjustments, depth of field, focus, noise, and lighting or lens effects, among others.

Version 2.0 features a new user interface, while adding support for 64-bit operation. It introduces a lens adjustments filter for all of its effects and updates numerous modules. The depth-of-field module adds motion, circular and concentric blur capabilities and grain effects in out-of-focus areas, while the grid distortion utility adds layers and blending. Lens distortion adds a double input/output lens correction that can correct perspective, with spherical correction for 180- and 360-degree lenses and pincushion distortion correction for wide angle lenses.

HSC Edit 2 works with Aperture versions 2.1 through 3, along with Mac OS X 10.5 and higher. Individual modules can be purchased separately for $90 each, or the entire collection can be bought for $300.
