Genesis V2Pro

Calling all sci-fi junkies – Genesis V2 Pro is what you’ve been waiting light-years for – a Photoshop plug-in that can create all your favourite Star Trek effects. You’ll no doubt revel in its mathematically intimidating interface – though if you’ve got the time and patience to experiment a little, it allows a high level of control and editabillity. Also, there’s loads of pre-sets if you’re in a rush. The plug-in includes sophisticated lens flares, glows, fire and smoke effects, explosions, flashes, image warps and a massive number of combinations of effects that can be applied to an image in one hit. It also includes an interactive-preview window and fast rendering when effects have been applied.

OUR VERDICT

At £75, Genesis is worth it. For users who want super-stella space scenes with rocket trails, nebulae and other weird phenomena, then it’s a must buy. There’s a downloadable trial version at www.futurefantastic.com.
