You Wanted New Features
Over the past few weeks, we've taken a look at the new website and the Ultimate Upgrade credits available for all existing NewBlueFX customers. This week, we’ll turn our focus to the 30+ new features in the reimagined NewBlueFX product line. These features include new modes and controls, smoother and cleaner results, improved anti-aliasing and new presets for your favorite plugins. Let’s get started.
New Modes & Controls
RGB Shift - Fill Modes
New features to the popular RGB Shift effect and transition are the mirror, stretch and fill modes. These modes are ideal for eliminating black outlines that show through and beneath the RGB effect. The new fill mode duplicates the edge of the frame while the stretch mode, stretches the frame to the edge of your image.
Air Brush - Mix Control
The new Mix control in Air Brush allows you to control how the Edge and Spray react with your video. A higher mix creates a more drastic effect, while lowering the mix reveals a more subtle blending effect.
Attack and Release
The Attack and Release feature, added to 18 of our transitions, allows you to blend two clips together at various speeds. Quickly jump to the next video, or ease into it smoothly. Set a transition with a low attack speed, and a high release speed to give the effect of quickly jumping into a transition, then slowly easing out of it.
Added to all 3D transitions, the Drop Shadow effect provides a powerful realism and dynamic feel to your scene-to-scene cuts. Use new features like key frame parameters such as Offset, Angle, Shadow Blur and Opacity to customize your desired look.
Smoother, Cleaner, Better
In addition to many new features, we’ve improved numerous effects and transitions including Liquify, Metallic, Color Wash and Shiny Fog. By expanding the scope of plugins and providing greater contrast, we’ve delivered a smoother, cleaner, and clearer result.
Anti-aliasing, helps prevent lines from becoming blurred or distorted. We’ve improved the anti-aliasing in our Picture-in-Picture and Sketch effects to deliver sharp, distinct lines for your PIP windows and sketched line effects. So you can say goodbye to fuzzy borders.
New Presets/Aspect Ratio
Last but not least, we added a whole host of new presets to our plugins, including the new “Industry aspect ratio black bar” perfect for 16:9 projects. Explore these presets to find the look you need and get your project started. Anti-aliasing, helps prevent lines from becoming blurred or distorted. We’ve improved the anti-aliasing in our Picture-in-Picture and Sketch effects to deliver sharp, distinct lines for your PIP windows and sketched line effects. So you can say goodbye to fuzzy borders.
