Code named PowerStation, volume 1 is a package of ImageFX modules designed to work with the PowerPC as a coprocessor. This speeds up the specific modules up to ten times the speed of the same module running on a native 68060 processor. In many cases the effects become nearly real-time!
PowerStation premiered to record crowds at the Amiga '99 show in St. Louis and became the 'must-have' item of the show!
The PowerPC effects are for use with ImageFX 3.2 or higher only. This first volume of modules includes the following effects, which have all received the PowerPC treatment. You might also find a few other extras included with this PowerPC package as well!
Bubble - creates multiple bubbles over your selected image. You can control the animation and optional color of the bubbles easily. Create an undersea effect or psychedelic champagne bubbles!
Fire - one of ImageFX's most popular effects. Fire can create flickering candle flames, gas-stove flames, raging forest fires and more. All parameters can be animated or controlled through a single slider.
Clouds - recently added to ImageFX, the Clouds effect can create amazing multi-layered fractal clouds. It can also be used to create fog or smoke over images, simulated explosions, or even seamless textures of landscapes with cloud patterns animating across them.
Liquid - this is an endlessly fascinating effect that distorts your image as if it were on water. You can create funhouse mirror distortions or unique video transitions with this effect.
FXForge - based on the same formulas used in Adobe Photoshop's Filter Factory™ package, FXForge can create an infinite number of custom special effects using mathematical formulas. Color effects, distorting effects, lighting effects are all possible with this amazing engine. It remains fully compatible with the thousands of effects available on the Internet for Adobe's Filter Factory™.
