This free update brings many new products based on FxFactory: idustrial revolution Volumetrix 2, Motype 1.2, DVShade EasyLooks 2.5 and Boinx FxTiles 1.0.
Current FxFactory Pro 2 customers get three new plug-ins in this release: the “PDF Animator” and “Perlin Noise” generators, and the “Alpha Merger” filter in the color correction category.
What's New in FxFactory Pro?
Based on the same user interface of the free Pan and Zoom plug-in, PDF Animator lets you animate PDF graphics with minimal setup inside any supported host. PDF Animator preserves the sharpness of your vector graphics at any zoom level.
This filter lets you assign new alpha information to a clip by importing it from a secondary source. For example, Alpha Merger lets you combine a first clip containing only color information, with a second clip containing a grayscale representation of the alpha channel (matte track).￼
This generator is a GPU-accelerated variant of the Perlin Noise algorithm, which earned his author, Ken Perlin, a Technical Achievement Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The output of the Perlin Noise plug-in can be combined with other effects to simulate a variety of natural phenomena.
In addition to the new plug-ins, FxFactory Pro 2.0.7 brings numerous performance and quality improvements to all filters in the “NI Blur” and “NI Glow” categories.
