Red Giant Releases Guru Suite


Red Giant announced the release of Guru Suite, a package of 17 Guru Presets that provide motion designers and filmmakers with a professional, customizable starting point for their creative work. Red Giant has partnered with eight industry-leading designers from the motion graphics and VFX community to provide a collection of visual effects presets, film looks, project templates and training videos.

With Guru Suite, users have access to over 200 film looks for Magic Bullet Looks 2, over 100 effect presets for Trapcode Suite, and over 200 After Effects project templates that use Looks, Trapcode and Knoll Light Factory.

Customers can also draw inspiration from Red Giant’s library of QuickStart videos created by the Guru artists, who contribute decades of creative experience.

“Customers love Guru Presets because they allow them to do more with less and do it faster. It just made sense for us to create an offering that made all of our time saving presets and videos that much more accessible to them,” said Micah Sharp, general manager at Red Giant. “Guru Suite offers a tremendous depth of industry expertise. It’s like having your own personal production crew of industry experts at your disposal to help you create stunning projects in a fraction of the time.”

Guru Suite is packaged at a deep discount of over 50% versus buying the individual Guru Presets.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
