Update: Furnace To Support Mac OS XPlugin package provides compositing tools for Shake
Furnace is a plugin package that provides additional compositing and rotoscoping tools to Shake. According to The Foundry, a prerelease version is being used by The Moving Picture Company on Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Jackie Chan's Highbinders for wire removal.
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);
- Texture Replication (for generating seamless plates of imagery from a sample picture).
The Foundry says that Furnace will also be ported at a later date for other compositing packages. Pricing has not yet been set. For more information, visit http://www.thefoundry.co.uk.
