Curious Software Releases gFx Pro v2.6Updates raster paint, rotoscoping and retouch software packages (December 17, 2004)
Curious Software is delighted to announce the release of Version 2.6 of Curious gFx Pro and gFx Pro+ its powerful raster paint, rotoscoping and retouch software packages.
Curious gFx Pro range has been taken up by some of the most prestigious film effects houses including: CIS (US), Disney Feature Animation (US), Framestore (UK), Pacific Title (US), and WETA (New Zealand) and an increasing number of post-production facilities around the world.
This release includes a myriad of new features and improvements in both functionality and user interface. Among the more significant additions are:
Project portability: A new option has been added to allow local Storage of Painted Material in the same directory as a saved project, rather than in a central depository. This makes projects easily portable from one computer to another.
Paint improvements: A large number of new features have been added to extend the flexibility and quality of painting and roto work, including interactively adjustable feathered brush profiles, nudging and numerical setting of the background offset for merge painting, frame locking for time-offset merge painting and addition of repeatable random simulated film grain to brush strokes.
Tracking additions: Tracking can now be applied to paint macros so that recorded painting operations can be made to follow any tracked point. Tracks can also be smoothed after creation, and the tracking user interface has been improved in a number of areas. Other, additions include automatic scaling of tracked areas according to the image resolution and direct visual feedback of the colour channels being tracked.
Work has also been done to significantly enhance the overall performance of this new release.
