procreate Introduces KPT effects at Seybold
KPT effects Optimized for OS X

KPT effects is the second application to join the procreate line of creative enhancement tools. Optimized for Mac OS X, KPT effects is a collection of nine new Adobe Photoshop compatible plug-ins designed to add effects to digital images. KPT effects enables designers to apply effects that range from practical to fantastic.

KPT effects features the following new plug-ins:

  • KPT Pyramid Paint: Separate an image into color regions to give it the look and feel of an actual painting.

  • KPT Lightning: People can create realistic lightning effects
    by controlling every aspect of the bolt and path.

  • KPT Fluid: The KPT Fluid plug-in lets users make an
    image look as if it were floating on a pool of liquid. Users
    can add liquid distortion effects to images and create short
    animations.

  • KPT Hyper Tiling: Users can choose from geometrical
    shapes, including cylinder, sphere, or cube and apply pinch or
    vortex styles to create complex tiling effects that can be
    transformed through four-dimension space.

  • KPT Scatter: This 2D particle system scatters an imported image or a grid of images in a pattern over your original image.

  • KPT Channel Surfing: Apply blur, contrast and sharpen
    effects to any or all of the RGB, Hue, Luminance or Saturation
    Channels.

  • KPT Ink Dropper: Add drops of liquid to a surface to create everything from water spots to smoky swirls.

  • KPT FraxFlame II: An improved rendering engine and
    increased navigational control let you create stunning
    fractals.

  • KPT Gradient Lab: Multiple layers and sampling options
    give you even more control when generating gradients.

    KPT effects will be available on stores shelves in October at the suggested retail price of US$199. German and French versions will be available in November 2001. KPT effects is available for Mac OS 8.6 or higher, including Mac OS X, and Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows Me.
