Digital Film Tools' Rays Sheds Light on Film and Video Footage

Digital Film Tools, developer of visual effects software, has announced that their visual effects plug-in, Rays, has been updated to support popular video and film hosts. New supported hosts include Adobe After Effects CS5 and up, Premiere Pro CS5 and up, Apple Final Cut Pro 6, 7, and X, Motion 5, and Avid Symphony, Media Composer, Newscutter, and Xpress Pro. Shedding new light on film and video footage, Rays allows users to easily create realistic light ray effects with stunning image quality. Known as volumetric lighting in computer graphics, or crepuscular rays in atmospheric optics, this dramatic effect adds polish and style. By creating shafts of light streaming through clouds, rays filtering through a forest canopy, beams of light on a foggy night, or rays shooting out from text, Rays adds a striking and dramatic quality to any image.

Rays Feature Highlights:

  • Set the ray length and brightness
  • Control ray direction with an on-screen control
  • Customize the color of the rays using a color picker
  • Threshold control to specify where the rays will be visible
  • Randomize the rays
