WHAT’S NEW IN SAPPHIRE 2019


IMPROVED LENS FLARES


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.




NEW EFFECT: PIXELSORT


S_PixelSort a fun and modern way to add digital glitchy distortion to your an image, perfect for music videos or preset looks. Featuring a deep parameter set that can produce stunning results, Pixel Sort truly shines when used with the integrated Mocha tracking and masking and also when combined with other Sapphire effects inside the Sapphire Effect and Transition Builder.




NEW TRANSITION: WHIPLASH


S_WhipLash is a “sister effect” to one of the most popular Sapphire transitions, S_SwishPan. S_Whiplash blends multiple copies of an image together in order to digitally re-recreate the illusion of traveling a great amount of distant in a short time. Featuring a nice soft bounce stop, a smooth finish, or a snapback ending, S_Whiplash is an extremely powerful new Sapphire transition that must be see in action to be truly appreciated.
