SAN JOSE, CA — Reallusion (http://www.reallusion.com), a 2D and 3D animation software and content developer, has launched a new 3D composting solution for video editors. The iClone 3D Video Compositing Studio pack is a bundle that includes iClone 6 Pro, PopVideo Converter 3, Super VFX 200, Virtual Studio Vol.1, Motion Montage Vol.1, Virtual Studio Vol.2, and Motion Montage Vol.2.
Reallusion has also partnered with Digital Juice to include 200-plus frequently used visual effects, such as explosions, fire, smoke, magic, and revealers, that can be layered inside a real 3D space.
Now video editors can break away from simple 2D visuals, by immersing real-life video footage inside a 3D environment with full 3D video compositing. This is done thanks to a realtime 3D engine that allows users to freely manipulate a large amount of video textures and props that can directly interact with 3D characters or real video actors.
With iClone, users can assemble and customize virtual studios combined with dynamic sets and stages, while turning video footage into workable 3D assets that can become part of a realtime 3D environment. iClone also lends itself to 3D motion montage creation with visual effects that anyone with little-to-no experience can use. Video makers can create transparent videos from green, blue and other color backgrounds or convert existing alpha images and videos into transparent videos. They can also work with built-in masking tools and a chroma key timeline editor to cope with irregular shooting scenarios like imperfect lighting, camera movement, or color spill. Videos can be exported in up to 4K resolution.
The iClone 3D Video Compositing Studio pack is priced at $399.
