The Foundry Releases Furnace for Shake

Plugins targeted toward film compositors By Dave Nagel
The Foundry has released Furnace, a new set of plugins for Apple's Shake compositing system. The Foundry produces plugins (such as Tinderbox) for Adobe After Effects, Avid|DS, high-end Discreet systems and other platforms. Furnace was previously announced back in August, and it was shown for the first time back in September. The new package is targeted specifically toward film compositors.

Furnace, unlike other Foundry plugin sets, is not an effects package, but provides additional compositing and rotoscoping tools to Shake. Furnace's plugins include:

  • Wire Removal;
  • Rig Removal;
  • Retimer (for building inbetween frames and reducing edge dragging);
  • Steadiness (for removing translational and rotational camera shake);
  • Deflicker;
  • Degrain;
  • Regrain;
  • Texture Replication (for generating seamless plates of imagery from a sample picture).

Furnace supports Shake on Mac OS X, as well as other platforms. It sells for $5,000 per license, with render-only licenses selling for $1,000. FOr more information, visit http://www.thefoundry.co.uk.
