PRLog - Feb. 1, 2013 - BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- Bellingham, WA, February 1, 2013 -- Pixelan Software, celebrating its 17th year as a popular developer of video effects plugins, released today its DissolveMaster video transitions plugin for Adobe After Effects (Windows). This joins the plugin versions for Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Premiere Elements, Sony Vegas Pro, and Sony Vegas Movie Studio released in November. To date, DissolveMaster has been one of the hottest-selling new plugins ever produced by Pixelan.
DissolveMaster plugin controls for After Effects
DissolveMaster for Adobe After Effects is a hardware-accelerated plugin designed to be the ultimate tool to create dissolves and fades of all types including film dissolves, soft directional dissolves, blur dissolves, glow/flash dissolves and beautiful dissolve transitions never before possible.
Unlike basic cross-dissolve and film dissolve transitions built into Adobe After Effects, the plugin can customize the dissolve look and flow to subtly emphasize a scene's main subject or action as desired. Motion graphic artists and videographers get new ways to gently lead their audience's eye within a scene using the unobtrusive, clean aesthetic of the dissolve transition.
Nearly 500 customizable effect presets are provided, which can be reviewed and compared easily in a large animated Effects Browser window. For further customization, users can simply click in their preview to set the start or end location of the dissolve transition, then adjust keying, softness, shape, blend, glow, saturation, and blur effect controls in DissolveMaster to fine-tune the dissolve transition further. Never before has this level of customization been available with dissolve transitions in such an affordable plugin.
Importantly to video editors on a deadline, DissolveMaster's hardware-acceleration utilizes the user's video card to ensure speedy previewing and rendering. On faster video editing systems, the plugin will approach real-time performance. Additionally, After Effects and Premiere plugin versions have basic interoperability, saving more time. A user’s saved custom presets can be used in both, for example.
DissolveMaster is also more than a video transitions tool -- it can easily organically animate/flow any After Effects effect within a single layer, such as color changes, tonal adjustments, blurs, and other visual effects, even those from other third-party video effects plugins.
Michael Feerer, Founder and President of Pixelan, says "With DissolveMaster, users can customize After Effects dissolves and fades in useful ways never before possible. Considering how few transition or dissolve tools exist within After Effects, and how frequently dissolves appear in film and video productions as well as motion graphics work, this new plugin gives After Effects editors a powerful, fast new tool. It’s a great companion to users with the Premiere or Sony Vegas version who detour into After Effects periodically. And it's priced to be within virtually everyone's budget."
