2009 NAB Show Preview
wondertouch — Booth SL 2529B
pIllusion AE – plug-in for Adobe After Effects–wondertouch will showcase the beta version of its highly anticipated pIllusion AE plug-in for Adobe After Effects. The plug-in affords motion graphics and visual effects professionals working in the film post-production and pre-visualization, commercial broadcast, standard and HD video, and motion graphics industries easy access to the more than 2600 emitters available in the powerful particleIllusion library from within the AE environment. pIllusion AE is designed for use with After Effects version 7.0 and newer.
Pro Projects Volume 1–Pro Projects Volume 1, released earlier this month, will be on display for the first time at NAB. The Pro Projects Volume 1 collection contains five projects designed as animated backgrounds with an abstract graphic look that is geared to motion graphics artists or for those requiring abstract stock clips, digital video backgrounds, or other animated content. Each project is comprised of a collection of particleIllusion 3.0 emitters arranged into logical layers that are combined as a complete ready-to-render package that is completely customizable.
particleIllusion 3.0–particleIllusion 3.0, the company’s cornerstone application, is a standalone particle effects application designed as an easy-to-use, low-cost, high performance tool to quickly and simply add particle effects to any image, animation, or video footage. It enables creative professionals to efficiently and easily customize and modify effects, or create entirely new and realistic effects.
particleIllusion features an ever-growing collection of over 2600 different preset emitters such as smoke, fire, explosions, water effects, sparkles, colorful motion graphics effects, and many others. OpenGL hardware acceleration provides real-time (or near real-time) previews of most effects and ultra-fast rendering of final output. Praised for its power, speed and ease-of-use, particleIllusion has become the “industry standard” for the creation of dazzling visual effects. The current version of the software is available on the Windows and Mac OS X platforms.
pIllusion SE–pIlllusion SE is the low-cost introductory version of particleIllusion. The application is built on an older version of the particleIllusion engine, but still enables users to create a huge number of effects.
Pro Emitters–The wondertouch Professional Emitter Libraries (Pro Emitters) for particleIllusion 3.0 is a collection of 12 libraries that each contain 30 emitters thematically grouped to provide sophisticated, ready-to-use, motion graphics-style particle-based effects. The Pro Emitters supplement the already impressive selection of different preset emitters that ship with particleIllusion 3.0, as well as the additional emitters that the company releases free-of-charge each month; arming artists with an impressive variety of effects choices to easily customize particle effects projects quickly and cost efficiently.
