The Foundry's Tinder product line delivers image processing plug-ins to the most demanding professionals in the post-production industry. Now these highly regarded developers have turned their years of industry experience into an essential product for Adobe After Effects users.

Aside from superior speed and image quality, all the filters in Tinderbox also share an innovative custom interface, allowing the user to visually inspect and alter parameters as well as quickly see the input and output for each plug-in. This addition brings a little taste of node-based compositing to the Adobe After Effects experience.

The Foudry's Blur and Directional Blur filters directly take advantage of the company's skill in producing fast plug-ins. These are simply the fastest software blurs you can get for Adobe After Effects. In addition to blur radius, they also provide numerous other fine-tuning parameters. These blurs also never slow down, no matter how large the blur becomes.

The seven effects filters in Tinderbox will add a new look to your compositions. The Foundry's Rays filter is particularly popular, improving on the classic Final Effects filter by providing a substantial speed boost. The Etch filter is one of the more convincing plug-ins to make video look like a hand drawing. Four ³Generator² filters synthesize pixels out of nothing.

A custom interface laden Gradient filter will please many day-to-day AE users while the stunning Sky plug-in will amaze people with its realism and flexibility. Try using it in conjunction with Atomic Power's Psunami plug-in. Tinderbox's tools plug-ins are more directed toward solving problems.

Deflicker is the RGB equivalent of motion stabilization. Degrain removes noise while Dilate can be used to grow and shrink greyscale mattes. Three warping plug-ins can distort an image based on another layer's luminance or using included water ripple and spherical distortion filters.

In the great tradition of AE plug-in packages, Tinderbox includes a wide variety of tools. Some filters you will use every day, others will get brought out on special occasions to produce completely unique effects. This package is just the first of many good things to come from the Foundry.
