And, no one else has made transitions in light this easy to use.”

  • Light Ring creates a rippling ring of brilliance that melts one shot into the next

  • Plasma Glow warps one scene into the next with a dynamic shimmering blast of light
  • Psycho Strobe generates a sequence of bright flashes of light, blazing from one shot into the next
  • RGB Shift separates the image into colored layers that vibrate and jog around as they reassemble into the second scene
