SmoothKit version 2 released

Hey all,

Just wanted to let you know that we've released SmoothKit version 2 today. SmoothKit is a blurring filter set that combines user-directed controls and feature-sensitive methods.

In case you don't want to read all the mumbo-jumbo below, we've put up our first screencasts showing SmoothKit in use to try and make it clearer why you'd want this toolset. The screencasts are here:

Gallery of finished movies here:

What's cool and new in 2.0?
  • ability to control blurring directions by using AE's and combustion's splines
  • new depth-of-field filter that blurs using depth maps from 3D systems
  • floating point support in AE 7.0 and later
  • more aggressive multiprocessing support
  • new sharpening filter that has more controls than most sharpen filters
  • new "bloom" setting in our Gaussian filter, to better preserve highlights
  • smart rectangle processing in AE 7 or later

Of course there are many other "old" features still available. See

Pricing? $119.95. $39.95 to upgrade from version 1 (users who purchased since December 1, 2007 will get the upgrade for free).

All the info you need about SmoothKit:

Cheers, and happy Friday,
Pete Litwinowicz
