Get the Look of Sci-Fi Holograms with Holomatrix from Red Giant Software

(November 17, 2009)
DMN Newswire--2009-11-17--Red Giant Software has released Holomatrix, a new After Effects plug-in that lets you control your reality and offers a new dimension in effect generation. Many science fiction feature films and TV shows feature holographic communication and interfaces. Red Giant Holomatrix allows you to easily recreate that effect with just a few clicks. The package includes 30 presets that turn ordinary footage into animated sci-fi holograms, mimics bad TV reception and creates realistic looking digital signage.

Designed by After Effects gurus Dan Ebberts and Aharon Rabinowitz, Holomatrix is available now for $99. Holomatrix is also being offered with Digieffects Damage for a total of $149 (save $49). See Pricing and Availability section for more information.

?My inspiration for Holomatrix began years ago when I was working on a hologram tutorial. It was very simple, and I was never really happy with the end result. The look I wanted required hours of setup work and animation time. But, thanks to Dan Ebberts and his coding skills, we're now able to turn hours of work into seconds. We're excited to share the product with you, said Aharon Rabinowitz, Director at All Bets Are Off Productions and Director of Marketing at Red Giant Software.

Digital Signs and Screens
Get your futuristic funk on with jerky, dystopic Blade Runner-like digital signage, enhance the look of your virtual heads-up displays with different effects and behaviors, or give your perfectly clean visuals a gritty, hyper-digital feel.

Bad Reception
Video isn't always pretty ? kick it old school by giving your footage a "bad TV" look. With features like color noise, static, TV roll, image ghosting and color separation, you're ready to go from good to bad. Effects can be randomized, or you can keyframe the effect's on/off switches for total control.
