Imagineer Systems Announces Availability of motor

Guildford, UK - Imagineer Systems, maker of next-generation VFX tools, has announced the availability of motor. Motor marks the first offering in the company’s new initiative to deliver high-end visual effects and design capabilities to mainstream visual effects artists.

Motor is a rotoscoping tool for high-quality matte production for commercial, film, and corporate video post production. Motor is built on Imagineer's 2.5D planar tracking and Spline technology.

three to four times faster than with traditional tools. 

Motor complements users' existing investments in postproduction hardware and software with seamless compatibility with industry-popular design platforms, such as Autodesk discreet, Avid DS, Adobe After Effects, Quantel generationQ, and Apple Shake.
