WHAT’S NEW IN SAPPHIRE 2019



NEW EFFECTS. IMPROVED FUNCTIONALITY. FASTER SPEEDS.



Sapphire 2019 is the latest major upgrade for the legendary suite of VFX plug-ins. Key features include a totally revamped and enhanced LensFlare and Flare Designer, new PixelSort digital glitch art effect, new WhipLash transition, new animating shape tool for Effect and Transition Builder, new Mocha Essentials workspace with new spline tools like magnetic edge snapping, and it’s optimized for maximum CPU and GPU performance.




BRAND NEW LENS FLARES FOR 2019



New to Sapphire 2019 is the reboot of S_LensFlare, with a redesigned and reimagined Flare Designer tool. New professionally designed presets, lens objects, flare components, and itergrated preset browser showcase the complexity and flexibility behind the legendary powerful Sapphire flare engine.




GLITCH IT UP WITH PIXELSORT



S_PixelSort is a fun modern way to add digital glitchy distortion to your image — and it’s great for music videos or preset looks. PixelSort’s deep parameter set gives you total control over your desired result. Pair it with integrated Mocha tracking and masking or combine it with other effects inside Sapphire Effect and Transition Builder for slick, highly-stylized results.




SWISH PAN ON STEROIDS: WHIPLASH TRANSITION



S_WhipLash is a sister effect to one of the most popular Sapphire transitions — S_SwishPan. The powerful new transition blends multiple copies of an image together in order to digitally recreate the illusion of traveling a great amount of distance in a short time. Featuring a nice soft bounce stop, a smooth finish or a snapback ending. Seeing is believing.




ENHANCED MOCHA TRACKING AND MASKING



The integrated Mocha tracking and masking inside of Sapphire 2019 features some major improvements including a brand new Essentials interface, a new magnetic spline tool, new preset vector shapes for circular and rectangular masks, and new High DPI support for Retina and 4K monitors.




FASTEST SAPPHIRE EVER



Optimized for peak GPU acceleration for CUDA enabled NVIDIA cards. Blackmagic Resolve colorists and Adobe Premiere Pro CC editors will see the greatest benefit from this across the board performance increase.
