Presents a complete set of 21 tools to accelerate compositing tasks

Adds a rich suite of compositing techniques to your NLE with over 250 presets in 21 plugins that simplify multi-step tasks. Easily generate split screens and drop shadows. Add a viewfinder overlay and key green screen footage inside of your editing application.

From the rapid keying power of Chroma Key Pro to the instant geometry of Split Screen, Image Mapper or Background Generator, once complicated or impossible compositing tasks become quick and easy.


  • Chroma key pro

    Knock out backgrounds from green screen shots or replace skies with other textures using Chroma Key Pro—You’ll find a variety of presets for the most common keys, to easily create garbage mattes, as well as change the color range, sensitivity, spill removal and more

  • Active camera

    With Active Camera, choose from a variety of professionally designed presets to emulate a wandering cameraman, or simulate a wild car chase—It’s now easier than ever to reproduce the motion of a hand-held camera, adjust horizontal and vertical shift values, as well as the rotation and rate

  • Background generator

    Produce a stylized backdrop from your own footage—It’s simple to copy your clip then alter it with blur, color, saturation, exposure and animated panning, then use your clip behind a picture-in-picture for a complementary but different background of shape, line and color, and use the result inside text mattes, borders, or cutout masks for a rich graphic work

  • Gradient fill pro

    Match the look of logos to your video without asking your client for new assets with Gradient Fill Pro—It’s painless to alter, or completely change the color of images and text, adjust multi-point gradients, transparency, blending and drop shadow on any alpha image or video
