Inspired by those stylized television ads for a major brokerage firm, NewBlue chief technology officer Todor Fay led his team in designing a lightweight, flexible free video effects plugin that instantly applies a hand-drawn, cartoon-like effect to live video. Explains Fay, "With NewBlue Cartoonr, users can combine intriguing artistic effects with the power of live action. This free cartoon effect plugin rivals products costing hundreds of dollars."


Although valued at $250, NewBlue is offering NewBlue Cartoonr free of charge to users of all leading desktop video editing platforms. Designed as a flexible special effects plugin, NewBlue Cartoonr integrates directly into the Adobe Premiere Elements, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, Apple Final Cut Pro, Avid Liquid, Avid Media Composer, Avid Xpress Pro, Canopus Edius, Pinnacle Studio, Sony Vegas and Ulead VideoStudio product lines.

When asked why the company would make NewBlue Cartoonr available at no cost to users, Fay replied, "What better way to show the video editing community the power of NewBlueFX? We're quite convinced that once users try NewBlue Cartoonr, they'll come back for more. And with over 100 more effects, filters and transitions in our NewBlueFX collection of video effects plugins, we've got plenty more to offer them."

Part of the NewBlueFX line of audio and video effects plugins, NewBlue Cartoonr offers a rich palette of preset cartoon styles and provides powerful control over drawing and painting techniques. Its elegant user-interface, a NewBlueFX trademark, allows fine tuning of both drawing and painting techniques, resulting in a rotoscoping effect. In addition, NewBlue Cartoonr features controls for blending in the original image to create artistic effects with ease.
