Lighting plugin package is the first in the new Simulate series of products
Wilmington, NC â€“ June 17, 2008
â€“ Digieffects, a developer of popular visual effects software plugins today announced that it has shipped Simulate: Illuma, a plugin package offering a specialized collection of effects plugins for creating light and glow effects. Simulate: Illuma includes the following effects: â€¢ Halo: An easy to use bloom/blur effect with color channel control. â€¢ Lightracer: Enhances visible light sources, particularly in dark settings as well as providing options for creating unique image looks. â€¢ Radiance: The stuff of dream sequences...gentle glow with a versatile set of tools including intensity and threshold for each individual color channel. â€¢ Photogust: Fast and effective point emanation blurs. â€¢ Luminus: Just the right glow is easy to achieve with lots of control including multiple effect blend modes. Simulate: Illuma is the first plugin package in the Digieffects Simulate series of plugin packages. Simulate: Camera and Simulate: Pyro are due to be released later this summer. â€œWe have several new plugin packages in development at Digieffects. Simulate: Illuma is the first of several new releases slated for 2008 to follow Damage which we launched in March and is now one of our best-selling productsâ€?, says Robert Sharp, President of Digieffects. Simulate: Illuma, as with all Digieffects software launched after January 2008, has the following two unique features which will appeal to customers. â€¢ Randomizer: The Randomizer is part of the Digieffects custom User Interface. When clicked, multiple parameters within the interface will simultaneously adjust causing completely new results. Once a customer sees a look they like, they can use that as a starting point and manually tweak the parameters to achieve a specific effect. This serves as a massive timesaver for our time-pressed customers. â€¢ Presets: The unique aspect of the Digieffects presets is their portability. Once youâ€™ve saved your effect parameters, these can be moved between supported host applications. Simulate: Illuma is immediately available directly from Digieffects and its resellers. It has an MSRP of $99.00.
