Noise Industries release: Factory Tools Visual Effects Suite

The first software suite for creating, applying and sharing effects on the Avid AVX architecture. (September 06, 2005)
Noise Industries, developer of integrated effects technology for video and film production, today announced that version 1.0 of Factory Tools is now available. Factory Tools is the first software suite for creating, applying and sharing effects on the Avid AVX architecture which dynamically extends the effects supported by Avid editing systems.  Factory Tools is a Macintosh only product and supports numerous features available only in Mac OS X Tiger. 

Factory Tools includes a comprehensive collection of real-time plug-ins designed for quality and performance, available directly in the Avid non-linear editing system. The suite includes 85 effects out of the box, with many more available for download at the Noise Industries Effect Market. 

Factory Floor
The Factory Tools suite includes Factory Floor, the revolutionary effect management and authoring tool for the Avid AVX architecture. Current offerings in the integrated effects industry limit users to a fixed set of conventional plug-ins. Factory Floor sets a new standard by letting end users create brand new AVX-compatible effects in minutes, requiring no programming experience or coding.

Effect Market
The Noise Industries Effect Market is an online marketplace where effect artists and users can share and distribute free and commercial visual effects created with the Factory Tools suite.  ?The Noise Industries Effect Market is bound to convert the integrated effects industry from a market driven by a few sellers, to a market driven by the needs and creativity of the users and artists, said Noise Industries Head of Business Development Niclas Bahn.
