It’s time to get excited. The new Ignite Pro 5 update is here! We have jam-packed this new release with a huge array of awesome new updates, workflow enhancements, plugins, and presets. Continue reading to find out more about the exciting changes in Ignite Pro 5.
What’s in the Ignite Pro 5 update?
Chromatic Aberration plugin
Create stylized glitch, grunge, or surreal effects with the new Chromatic Aberration plugin. This new effect splits the RGB channels in your footage and offsets them to create imperfect color alignment.
Remove Stock Background plugin
The useful Remove Stock Background plugin simplifies, and speeds up the process of removing the backgrounds from stock footage shot on a black or white background, saving you time and effort.
Crop & Pan
You can now crop footage and animate the crop to control which area of your footage is shown. This effect will come in useful if you’re looking to pan and zoom 8K or 4K footage in post-production to create cinematic effects.
New Presets for Lightning & Electricity plugin
Our dazzling new Presets for the Lightning & Electricity effects plugin enables you to create even more dynamic, professional-looking thunderstorms, and visual effects. New presets include:
- Distant lightning – for adding a distant thunderstorm lightning strike
- Lightning strike – for adding a nearby thunderstorm lightning strike
- Jacob’s Ladder – to create the ‘Jacob’s ladder’ electricity effect
- Power coupling – to create a ‘coupling’ effect, like is seen on Star Wars Podracers
- Force Lightning – for adding multiple lightning bolts shooting from fingers
- Spot Lightning – to add a single moving lightning bolt that flickers on and off
Each of these presets can be manually customized to create even more unique effects in post-production.
GoPro Lens Reframe plugin
You can easily edit and reframe 360° footage faster than ever before using the GoPro Lens Reframe plugin. Manually adjust the horizon level, adjust lens curvature, Pan, Tilt, Rotate, and Zoom your frame within the footage. You can also alter the base positioning or orientation of the clip, fine-tune lens distortion to straighten out lines, or alter the apparent ‘focal length’. Adjusting the amount of motion blur applied to animated movements is also possible with the ‘motion blur’ and ‘shutter angle’ parameters.
Highpass Sharpen plugin
The new Highpass Sharpen plugin takes the fuss out of sharpening the edges within your footage. Just apply the effect and adjust to your liking. Sharper details in no time at all.
We’ve also improved performance and stability, streamlined performance in After Effects, added new presets for the Grid plugin such as Grid of Fourths, Grid of Thirds, and Title Safe Boundaries, and also removed host restrictions so that Ignite Pro can now be used in most OpenFX applications. So what are you waiting for?
