Sapphire v7 Visual Effects for Avid Xpress from GenArts is an advanced video effects plug-in package with over 2,500 effects and transitions presets based on over 250 effects. The presets are completely adjustable and fast-rendering, and the effects can be blended with one another. A CUDA-capable NVIDIA card is required for fast rendering.
Sapphire integrates directly into Avid Express Pro (version 5.0) and provides on-screen widgets for many of the effects. Sapphire is multiprocessor-enabled, and the effects are resolution independent and compatible with any resolution supported by the host program. All Avid-platform versions of Sapphire render in real-time and have a PanAndZoom feature not available on other platform versions.
A new tool that allows you to pan, zoom, and rotate large image files. It also has stylistic options to add drop shadow, vignette, and MotionBlur.
