Media 100 Introduces Final Effects Plug-Ins
Media 100 has released Final Effects Complete, a set of over 100 software plug-in filters and transitions that generate special effects for film, video, animation content, DVD and CD-ROM content, for Mac OS X.
Final Effects Complete can generate full-featured 2D and 3D particle animations within digital media solutions from Media 100, Avid, Apple and Adobe nonlinear editing customers. These particle filters enable video editors to generate rain, snow, fire, smoke, ball action, explosions, distortions, jet trails, hair, liquid mercury distortions, spotlights, color transitions and other video effects.
The product is priced at $705 and will be available before 2003 through resellers and Media 100. Existing Final Effects customers can upgrade for $249. In order to jumpstart sales, Media 100 is knocking $100 off the price of the whole system and $50 off the upgrade price through Feb. 21, 2003.
