Digital Film Tools Releases 55mm 6.0
Posted Jan 1, 1753

Digital Film Tools has released 55mm 6.0. It adds 12 new filters, tunes existing filter algorithms and adds filter presets to a variety of different plug-ins, including Depth of Field, Rack Focus, Vari-Star, Strip-Grad and a new Light filter.

55mm is a set of digital optical filters meant to simulate popular glass camera filters, specialized lenses, optical lab processes, film grain, exacting color correction, as well as natural light and photographic effects--all in a controlled digital environment with either 8 or 16 bits per channel processing. The Light! filter can add light to a scene where none existed before, just as if you were adding light at the time of shooting.

Realistic lighting and shadow is introduced using the entire pattern/gobo library created by GAMPRODUCTS, INC. Normally used in front of lights during photography, these same exact patterns can be applied digitally to the entire image or inside a selection. There are 567 patterns to choose from including blendables, breakups, Christmas, cityscapes and towns, clouds, fences and openings, fire and water, flags, flowers, foliage, holidays and symbols, moons, natural elements, religion, signage, sky and stars, spirals, spotlights and pinspots, stones and brick, structures and sets, themes, trees, vignettes, and windows. In addition, digital equivalents of the lighting gels created by GAMPRODUCTS, INC. can now be applied to your light source.
