Red Giant Introduces New Volume Licensing Program Designed for Organizations with Multiple Artists, Workstations and Facilities

March 5, 2015 Comments off

Red GiantPortland, OR – March 3, 2015 – Red Giant today announced its new Volume Licensing Program (VLP) for its award-winning lineup of plug-in suites, designed to meet the demands of larger organizations. A flexible and affordable solution for customers who require 10 or more floating licenses, the Volume Licensing Program removes the tedium of software deployment and management.

The Volume Licensing Program includes the option to buy an annual subscription to Trapcode Suite, Magic Bullet Suite, Shooter Suite, Effects Suite and Keying Suite. Customers can also buy an annual subscription to the Red Giant Complete Suite, which contains all of the suites at a discounted price. To learn more about Red Giant’s new Volume Licensing Program, please visit:http://www.redgiant.com/volume-license-program/.

How the Program Works
Created to simplify the process of licensing, installing and updating multiple suites at once, RedGiant’s new Volume Licensing Program uses a floating license server model called Reprise License Manager (RLM) for easy management. With RLM, Red Giant volume customers requiring 10 or more seats can now “check out” licenses for use on individual client machines, then “check in” licenses after they are finished being used. This makes tracking licenses simple, while ensuring that only the exact number of licenses that were purchased are being used at any given time.

IT administrators can also gather data on each individual license, including how many are being used and when. This hands the control back to the company and increases work efficiency – administrators will always know if they have the right number of suites for their entire organization, which means they can expand or contract as needed. Best of all, keeping software up-to-date requires no effort, as VLP licenses can be updated automatically.

Who the Program Will Benefit
In the past, Red Giant has relied on an in-house, serial number-based licensing scheme, a simple solution for non-enterprise customers who only need to manage a few licenses. However, when used within larger environments, users requested a comprehensive way to maintain multiple licenses.

As a result, Red Giant created the Volume Licensing Program, specifically designed for larger facilities using 10 or more workstations. The Program is ideal for heavier day-to-day Red Giantsoftware users, including post-production houses, large media and entertainment brands, advertising agencies, broadcast networks and academic institutions.

Pricing and Availability
Customers may subscribe to at least one suite to take advantage of program benefits. The volume subscription pricing is as follows:

Trapcode Suite
• Annual Volume Subscription: $299 per seat (vs. $899 traditional)

Magic Bullet Suite
• Annual Volume Subscription: $299 per seat (vs. $799 traditional)

Shooter Suite
• Annual Volume Subscription: $199 per seat (vs. $399 traditional)

Effects Suite
• Annual Volume Subscription: $199 per seat (vs. $499 traditional)

Keying Suite
• Annual Volume Subscription: $299 per seat (vs. $799 traditional)

RED GIANT COMPLETE SUITE
• Annual Volume Subscription: $599 per seat (vs. $2,999 traditional)

For more information, please email volume@redgiant.com or call (260) 918-4505 x110.

Meet With Red Giant at NAB 2015
Attendees to the NAB Show are invited to meet with the Red Giant sales team to discuss the Volume Licensing Program and how Red Giant products can benefit their unique workflows.

The new update also adds support for Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve, along with several updates to existing effects.

What’s New in Universe 1.3 Video – vimeo.com/111214739

“The Universe 1.3 update is full of some truly awesome stuff, including tools from CrumplePop, which were never before available outside of Final Cut. This update also features the all-new, highly realistic VHS effect, and support for a new host app: DaVinci Resolve,” states Aharon Rabinowitz, Red Giant’s head of marketing. “Resolve users have been asking us to bring tools like Knoll Light Factory EZ, Holomatrix and Retrograde into their app of choice, and today we’re excited to make that happen.”

“I love the vast amount of effects I can apply to my footage with Universe. It allows me to create truly unique looks that stand out from what everyone else is making,” comments filmmaker Joey Shanks of Shanks FX, who works in association with PBS Digital Studios. “And it’s really nice to know that such a powerful bundle of effects can evolve just like an artist. Universe’s tools are always expanding. It gives me the power to create high-end imagery with a practical workflow.”

Thirteen New Tools for Free and Premium Users
New tools for both free and premium users as well as enhanced and redesigned presets to existing tools, the expanded Universe release includes:

Free:

  • CrumplePop Photo 2: Give footage the look of a classic or instant photo. Includes tools for color treatments, vignettes, camera blur and more.
  • CrumplePop Noir Moderne Light: Create dramatic noir lighting effects with saturation controls, optically captured vignettes, flickering, Venetian patterns and more.
  • PixelGlow EZ (voted on in Universe Labs): An effect that isolates the brightest pixels and applies a glow in a variety of preset shapes to mimic halos, sparkles and shimmers.
  • 3D Venetian Transition: A transition that divides the layer into vertically rotating sections, while simultaneously revealing a second layer of footage.
  • Fill Alpha: A simple utility effect that floods an alpha channel with a color, with variable blending with the original; includes a unique, highly requested blending parameter.
  • Sobel Edges: A useful “find edges” stylize effect with variable blending, using the Sobel gradient method to highlight footage edges.

Premium:

  • CrumplePop Fisheye Fixer: An effect designed specially for GoPro® to correct GoPro fisheye lens distortion.
  • CrumplePop ShrinkRay: A fast and easy way to make big things look tiny by simulating a tilt shift effect.
  • CrumplePop Finisher: Use this effect to easily and dramatically improve the image quality of DSLR footage.
  • CrumplePop Overlight: A lens flare and light leak texture plugin that makes it easy to apply washed-out glows and lens flares to footage.
  • CrumplePop Grain 16: Using real 16mm film grain, add this effect to footage for the beautiful texture of authentic film.
  • VHS: Gives modern footage the classic look, color and distortion of old videotape.
  • Chromatic Aberration: A simulated lens distortion effect that mimics real-world lens aberration, in which there is a failure of a lens to focus all colors to the same convergence point; includes color splitting, lens distortion, blurs and lens textures for added realism.

New Effect Controls in the UI:

  • New to ToonIt Paint: A new Soft Strokes effect has been added to the Paint style drop down menu
  • A new Sketch Outline effect can be found in the UI of ToonIt CartoonToonIt Paint, ToonIt Outlines, and ToonIt Retouch

“We’re really excited to have more than 80 new OFX effects and transitions available for DaVinci Resolve,” says Dan May, president of Blackmagic Design. “Red Giant makes some of the best motion graphics and visual effects plugins in the industry, and we know our users will enjoy having access to Universe’s free and premium tools right within Resolve 11.”
