SGO’s Mamba FX and GenArts Sapphire 7 Energise the Imagination of Artists
19 March 2014, Madrid, Spain – The popular GenArts Sapphire 7 visual effects plug-in suite is now fully certified for SGO's new compositing software, Mamba FX. Just like Mamba FX, Sapphire 7 plug-ins make extensive use of GPU acceleration in order to provide the user with fast feedback and minimal render times. Both also permit very high quality, high dynamic range image processing.
Mamba FX is redefining VFX and already incorporates a variety of realistic and engaging effects and filters, including SGO's remarkable “optical flow” technology for shot re-timing, de-noising and frame restoration. With the addition of GenArts Sapphire 7, Mamba FX compositors can treat themselves to over 250 new effects and pre-sets to fully unleash their creativity.
Gary Oberbrunner, Chief Scientist of GenArts says, “GenArts Sapphire 7 is the most popular and trusted effects suite available, and we are excited to be able to offer its abilities to SGO's Mamba FX compositors. The latest suite offers an incredible array of effects and Mamba FX now joins a cross-platform list of supported hosts which ensure consistent application of those effects across vendors.”
SGO's CEO Miguel Angel Doncel confirms, “Mamba FX is the ideal platform for GenArts Sapphire 7 plug-ins as it has an incredibly high quality image processing pipeline and a core set of key features, yet still very affordable. Mamba FX with Sapphire 7 provides an invincible creative combination.”
Mamba FX is fully compatible with SGO's Mistika, which together provide a powerful complete conform, online, VFX, grading and delivery workflow that stands out from other systems.
