After Effects, Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro plug-in developer Digieffects has purchased Buena Software from Toolfarm, further adding to its arsenal of tools for creative professionals.
The Buena Software plug-ins for Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro and Apple Final Cut Pro were developed as effective processing tools to pick up on what the prominent software manufacturers overlooked. The plug-ins range from creative image processing and colour manipulation to 3D depth effects. Digieffects first action since purchasing the company has been to rearrange the Buena product line-up.
The new $199 (£100) Buena Effects Pack includes Au Naturel and Effects Essentials, which used to cost $149 and $249 separately. Au Naturel enables users to work on footage in a 32-bit per channel floating point linear RGB color space for more natural looking results when compositing, blurring, or correcting your footage. It costs $149 (around £75).
Depth Cue adds realistic depth effects to 3D layers, and its price remains at $199 (£100). The Swatch Buckler floating colour palette is available as a free download.
