GenArts' Sapphire Plug-ins v 1.1 Supports Avid AVX Products on Mac

(August 13, 2001)
GenArts, Inc. is shipping Sapphire Plug-ins version 1.1 for Avid Media Composer and Avid Xpress system users on Macintosh hardware. Version 1.1 sports new effects and feature enhancements making Sapphire Plug-ins an even more powerful complement to Avid AVX products.

Also new is DissolveLuma, a transition effect, which can make one clip appear to emerge through the other in interesting ways. Two new time saving enhancements have also been added: a Resolution parameter in all effects allows render resolutions to be reduced for faster testing, and the processing speed of many effects has been improved.

The full package of Sapphire Plug-ins now contains 193 effects ranging from the everyday tools such as Glows, EdgeRays, LensFlares, RackDefocus, MatteOps, and Blurs to the more exotic like Lightning, FlysEye, JpegDamage, Textures, and Kaleidoscope effects. Each plug-in has many options and parameters that can be adjusted and animated for an unlimited range of unique results. All the effects for Avid AVX are OMF-conformable so projects started with Sapphire Plug-ins on Media Composer or Avid Xpress on Windows NT and Macintosh can be easily moved to Avid|DS or Symphony systems for finishing.

GenArts offers free trials of Sapphire Plug-ins for Avid|DS, Symphony, Media Composer, Avid Xpress and Avid Xpress DV. Visit for more information.
