Red Giant Software will show five new products at the upcoming NAB Convention in Las Vegas, (April 14-17, 2008).
The company will offer show attendees demos of Trapcode Horizon, Instant HD Pro, Radium Glow, Magic Bullet Steady, and Primatte Keyer Pro 4.
Trapcode Horizon is a plug-in designed specifically for After Effects users doing 3D work. It can generate motion in 3D in a true 3D space, costs $99 and ships in the second quarter.
Instant HD Pro ($399) offers high quality conversion for SD to HD. Included tools include sharp, motion-compensated de-interlacing and de-noising; advanced pan and scan; and a super-resolution algorithm for providing actual resolution enhancement in an editing application.
Radium Glow ($99) is a collection of plug-ins designed to create glowing areas in an image, based on the brightest parts of the frame.
Magic Bullet Steady will include two new plug-ins for Final Cut Pro 6 and After Effects CS3 (Mac and Windows). The stabilizer function removes unwanted camera movement and drift with a software-based 2D translation that is near real-time. Also, included in this set is a tool to reduce visible noise and grain in DV sequences. The $199 package ships in summer.
Primatte Keyer Pro 4 is a professional greenscreen tool that extracts keys from any colour background quickly and easily. This version ($499) offers support for Final Cut Pro for the first time.
