Hawaiki Keyer 3.0 is now available

Hawaiki Keyer 3.0 is now available

Hawaiki Keyer 3.0 is a complete keying system for green screens and blue screens.  It features an innovative keying algorithm, a unique diagnostic toolset and unrivalled compositing options. The new Hawaiki Keyer is designed to help you get the perfect key with the minimum of guesswork.

Hawaiki Keyer is the most powerful and best value keying solution for Apple’s Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5.

Objectives – While we’ve refined the core algorithms and added some exciting new features, including the unique and extremely powerful Pre-Qualify option, the focus of this release has been about giving you the tools to reduce the guesswork so you can not only pull a better key but finish the job much faster. We’ve aimed to achieve this in a few different ways – by removing, reordering and renaming existing parameters, by providing more refined control of existing processes and by adding new and unique views that show both what you need to do and what you’ve done.

  • Improved Matte Extraction
  • Improved Diagnostic Tools

Stupid Raisins Love Pop for Wedding Videos!

Stupid Raisins Love Pop for Wedding Videos!

What is Love Pop?

Stupid Raisins Love Pop is a collection of 25 beautifully animated, professionally designed wedding titles and templates. Don’t do wedding videos? These titles and templates are useful for helping out a friend or relative who are getting married. Relatives always want something on the cheap! 😉 Actually, Love Pop is also useful for digital invitations for birthday parties and other events, so you can surely use this. Here’s an example of what’s in the collection.

My husband is a photographer and shoots a lot of weddings, but not does not shoot video too often. If and when he does, it’s usually stop motion of the pictures of the whole day. This new tool from Stupid Raisins would be a great option for him to really kick up his video style (and possibly charge more!)

Love Pop is $99 regularly, but Toolfarm discounts it by 5% every day, so get it for just $94.05. It also requires the Noise Industries FxFactory FxEngine, which is a free download.
