Introducing Compositor's Toolkit 3 From Digital JuiceAdd Realism & Believability With High Quality Liquid Motion Visual Effects (March 21, 2011)
Digital Juice(r) announced today the release of Compositor's Toolkit(tm) 3, the latest addition to its library of high-quality organic visual effects. This new volume focuses on the many properties of liquid motion. With more than 325 organic high-resolution, high speed clips, Compositor's Toolkit 3 has more visual effects than either of its predecessors in 13 all-new categories including Liquid Metal, Water Curls, Viscous Motion, Fluid Bursts and more.
The liquid effects in this volume run the gamut from subtle swirling slow motion ink drops and surfaces filled with clear water waves, ripples, bubbles and streaks - to high-energy throws and bursts of grungy mud, sediment and blood splats.
"The secret to pulling off great effects shots and motion graphics composites is using great tools," says Viv Beason, President of Digital Juice. "Not just software tools but also the visual elements you have to work with. The more realistic and high quality your elements and footage, the more believable your final composite will be." With Compositor's Toolkit, Digital Juice has gone through painstaking lengths to capture the essence that only real live effects can deliver. Imaginative limits are boundless with this artful collection of high resolution, ultra slow motion liquid effects.
? Over 325 high definition clips provided on 24 DVDs allow users to select from the largest single volume of high resolution liquid visual effects elements available anywhere.
? Every possible type of fluid / liquid organic element is included in 13 diverse categories, providing the variety of clips needed for just about any type of production, from subtle graphic motion backgrounds to complex realistic visual effects scenes.
? Real organic elements add realism and believability to post-production effects composites.
? Shot at 2048x1536 (2K), these bigger-than-HD resolution elements give users more than enough pixels to work with in any SD or HD environment.
? Ready-to-use pre-extracted mattes are included for most elements. This makes for easy alpha channel keying.
? Super slow-motion frame rates ranging from 100 - 700 fps were used in order to capture the unique properties of each type of liquid element so editors and artists would have more realistic and more dramatic footage to use in their productions.
