SAPPHIRE SPARKS FOR AUTODESK FLAME
Sapphire is the essential visual effects suite for Flame artists working in the broadcast, advertising, film, and online content creation industries. The world’s top Flame artists use Sapphire to create everything from photorealistic effects to stylized looks and treatments that put VFX in the spotlight. Sapphire’s Glow, FilmEffect, DigitalDamage, RackDefocus, EdgeRays, LensFlares, Lightning, Warps, Transitions and Textures are just a few examples that enable you to create sophisticated and stunning, yet completely organic looks, unmatched in the industry. The breadth and depth of over 260 visual effects not only frees up time to craft each piece of work exactly as you want it but also deliver the creative impact that engage viewers and delivers superior results. Sapphire’s legendary image processing quality, high degree of control, unlimited design potential, intuitive user interface, and lighting fast render times make it the toolset of choice for the Flame artist.
Sapphire 11 is the most significant release of Sapphire for Flame in years, bringing the Academy Award-winning Mocha tracking, masking and rotoscoping toolset right into Flame for the first time. Every Sapphire effect, where appropriate, now has a built-in Mocha masking module for easy isolation, and a dedicated Mocha Spark places the power of Mocha at the heart of Flame’s Timeline and Batch workspaces for fluid interaction with native tools. The new Mocha Spark also enables the export of complex roto shapes as GMasks and the export of Mocha planar tracking and stabiliser data to Action. Watch this short introduction video to learn all about these exciting new features.
Sapphire offers a wide variety of convenient licensing options. Whether it’s breaking down the full suite into individually priced Sapphire Units, offering Sapphire subscriptions, or RLM server based “floating licenses”, Sapphire can fit into any budget.

Sapphire’s Distort filter warps the source input clip using the gradient of the Lens input clip. This can generate optical glass-like effects as if the source clip were being viewed through an arbitrarily shaped lens. It is best demonstrated when the lens image contains just a few bold shapes or a simple texture.
