Red Giant Releases Primatte Keyer 5.1


LR-PrimatteKeyer5_Hero.144313Red Giant, makers of software tools for filmmakers, editors, VFX artists and motion designers, released Primatte Keyer 5.1, an update that adds support for Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro X (FCP X) and Motion. Using the same keying technology from blockbuster hits such as Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Spider-Man, Primatte Keyer lets users easily remove a blue or greenscreen background, often with the touch of a button.

“Over the last year we’ve heard, non-stop, from editors that they need chroma keying technology in their NLEs,” said Aharon Rabinowitz, Red Giant’s head of marketing. “Many of them have expressed frustration, both with needing to leave their editor to do even basic compositing and with the loss of time that comes with it. We’re really excited to help editors solve these challenges.”

Primatte Keyer 5.1 takes the powerful chroma keying tools that have, up until now, only been available to Adobe After Effects users and puts them into the hands of editors. Primatte Keyer now supports After Effects, Premiere Pro, FCP X and Motion, giving all users of these host apps direct access to tools for fast automatic keying, digital greenscreen relighting, as well as compositing and cleanup tools.

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.
