”Our goal is to provide editors with a powerful set of tools designed specifically for their systems,” said Todor Fay, CEO. “All of our plugins provide a complex yet accessible approach to editing – it’s what our users have come to expect and Video Essentials VI fully delivers on that promise.”

Video Essentials VI includes the following filters, all with a number of preset configurations:

  • Chroma Key Pro -Improves Chroma key and adds Outline, Drop Shadow and Garbage Matte options, plus improved keying algorithms for a flawless key.
  • Color Replace - Selects one color in your video and replaces it with another. Color Replace uses advanced algorithms for a clean key and preservation of luminance information, resulting in a more natural application.
  • Cut Away - Selects an area to magnify and reveals greater detail inside a picture-in-picture shape with ease, complete with circular or rectangular options and outline.
  • Garbage Matte - Limits certain effects or images in the effects chain with 4-point controls over curve and feather.
  • Picture Grid - Creates PIPs on a grid structure, which easily slots PIPs into place, so multi-track compositions can be fast and effective.
  • Picture-in-Shape - Creates a picture-in-picture type effect with an organic 4-point shape which can be skewed or curved. Includes flexible rotation and position controls and drop shadow.
  • Saturation EQ - Separates the color spectrum into 8 easy color controls so that specific colors can be over or under saturated. Also includes a custom color control in addition to the 8 standard color bands.
  • Saturation Modifier - Gives control over image saturation, independently increasing or decreasing color saturation values on original levels, which are above a threshold and also below a threshold.
  • Selective Touch Up - Creates a unique shape within an image and then uses that shape to mask a region for smoothing.
  • Tile - Takes one media segment and replicates it into multiple tiles across the screen with control over variants in saturation, brightness, clarity, opacity and blur in each copy of the image.
