Peder Norrby presents Trapcode's first Award for Excellence at NABKen Perlin wins first Trapcode prize for excellence
On April 17, Peder announced at the Red Giant Software booth that he was awarding Ken Perlin with the first Trapcode prize for excellence. The honor not only comes with a spotlight from the After Effects community's plugin author, but a ceremony which will take place in New York.
In a press release which will occur later today, Trapcode will announce that a ceremony honoring Ken Perlin with the $10,000 prize and sincere thanks will be held at New York University at 7:00PM on Monday April 23.
Ken Perlin is a professor at New York University and is the author of "Perlin Noise". Perlin won the Academy Award(TM) for Technical Achievement from AMPAS for his noise and turbulence algorithms in 1997.
Since then, Ken Perlin has published the code and made it public to developers like Peder Norrby. The code, which produces pseudo-random numbers for the creation of some beautiful computer graphic images, has been featured in Trapcode's plugins like Shine and Particular.
The Perlin Noise is also featured in the soon-to-be-relesed Trapcode plugin called FLUX.
There is no pricing or availability information about the new plugin yet, but it will be offered on the RED GIANT SOFTWARE site as soon as the data become public.
