Noise Industries Development Partners

Noise Industries, developer of visual effects tools for the postproduction and broadcast markets, announced that development partners DVShade, Idustrial Revolution, and Yanobox have updated several FxFactory-powered plug-ins for Adobe After Effects CS3/CS4, Apple Final Cut Studio, and Apple Final Cut Express applications. New FxPacks include: Idustrial Revolution's Volumetrix Version 2.0, the Yanobox title animation plug-in Motype Version 1.2, and DVShade's EasyLooks Version 2.5. Attendees to the NAB 2009 exhibition are test-driving the new FxPack releases at the Apple Final Cut Pro User Group SuperMeet held at the Rio Hotel today.

FxPacks are developed by Noise Industries and its partners using the Noise Industries FxFactory Pro plug-in manager. The FxFactory Pro Plug-in Manager provides broadcast designers a user-friendly development tool to create additional effects plug-in packages for Adobe After Effects, Apple Final Cut Studio and Final Cut Express applications.

DVShade EasyLooks 2.5 delivers a new rendering pipeline for fast, high-quality renders.  A new 3-way color corrector, new gradient overlay controls, and a vignette effect increase its compositing capabilities. EasyLooks 2.5 is a free upgrade for all existing EasyLooks 2.x customers.

Idustrial Revolution's Volumetrix 2.0 adds new rays, glows, distortions, and glints to the volumetric light-spill plug-ins for Final Cut Studio. The new update is free for existing Volumetrix customers.

The animation plug-in Motype offers improved features and adds new titling capabilities including: drop shadow on characters and 10 professional new titling presets for creating quick, high-quality title animations. Motype 1.2 is a free upgrade for existing Motype customers.

FxFactory Pro is available for $399. Additional plug-in packages are available for free or commercially starting at a price point of $29.
