Model Description:
Warping and Morphing Software with edge detection, color correction and matte generation

Model Details

Elastic Reality is the most advanced warping and morphing software for creating mind-bending special effects on Macintosh, Windows or Silicon Graphics workstations. Elastic Reality combines a powerful warping and morphing engine with edge detection, sophisticated 2D animation, color correction, matte generation and compositions tools. Whether you are working in video, CD-ROM, print or film, Elastic Reality offers unparalleled stretching, twisting and distortion control for every environment.

Key features of Elastic Reality:
- Available as a standalone special effects workstation or as a companion to Avid's editing systems through the Open Media Framework (OMF) Interchange, with support for more than 30 file formats
- Ability to warp and animate still images or morph live action with 3D images
- An intuitive shape-based interface combined with Bezier curve technology for easy shape creation, keyframing, and editing
- Custom edge detection technology that assists in tracing the shapes of an image for traveling mattes or morphing and warping*
- Color correction across any number of groups of shapes
- Shapes can contribute to an unlimited number of matte layers for compositions; each matte shape can be keyframed and edited for use with Avid's nonlinear editing systems as traveling mattes
