All-New Matte Magic product line features easy-to-use Full HD QuickTime black & white animated mattes

(Lake Mary, Florida--October 24, 2013) Digital Juice® announced today that it is releasing a new product line called Matte Magic that features 10 unique volumes of black & white animated mattes designed by video editors for video editors. All effects are Quicktime clips that will work with all editing and motion design software including Avid, Adobe Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas Pro, Final Cut Pro After Effects, Apple Motion and more.



“One of the most powerful features in any editing application is the black and white matte”, says David Hebel, CEO of Digital Juice. “It gives you the power to mask or cut out areas of your video, so that you can mix and merge it with other clips, animations or even just with black. Mattes are used everywhere, including music videos, show opens & high end commercials. They are simple to use and best of all, they keep your footage as the star. However, making a great matte, particularly a great animated matte, can be difficult and time-consuming. That's where Matte Magic comes in!”

What’s Included in the all-new Matte Magic Series:

Strobes & Flickers
The Matte Magic Strobes & Flickers volume includes more than 40 uniquely useful animated mattes with a variety of flashing, flickering, strobe-lit effects. The clips in this collection include a variety of intricately choreographed, rhythmically diverse, soft and hard shapes and motions.

Each animated matte is completely loopable so that you can design a production of any length.

The clips in this collection include a variety of intricately choreographed soft-edged geometric and organic shapes and fluid motions, designed to pull the viewer's eyes effortlessly into the next segment of your production without losing interest.

Transwipes - Medium
The Matte Magic TransWipes Medium volume includes 75 uniquely useful animated mattes that allow you to create transitions from one clip to the next using the perfect mix of soft and hard to define the transitional shapes and movements. The clips in this collection include a variety of intricately choreographed geometric and organic shapes and motions with edges that fall somewhere between subtly soft and knife's-edge hard, designed to pull the viewers eyes effortlessly into the next segment of your production without losing interest.

Transwipes - Hard

The clips in this collection include a variety of intricately choreographed hard-edged geometric and organic shapes and motions, designed to pull the viewer's eyes effortlessly into the next segment of your production without losing interest.

Simply by adding any of these mattes on top of your footage with the appropriate luma matte setting, you can elevate your footage from the mundane to the sublime, raising the production value of a project instantly. To enhance the look further, you can fill the areas behind your matted footage with a solid color, secondary footage clip or animated background for your own one-of-a-kind vignette in any type of production from promos to montages, show opens to event videos.

With the Matte Magic collections, you get a deceptively straightforward library of easy to use and fast to render black and white matte animations that will drive the action in your productions smoothly from one scene to the next, developing a higher quality of motion design magic in the process and allowing your production to flow with sophisticated style.

Terrible issues with installation of drag and drop and matte magic.

I purchased both package, which are dozens of files and since I am not where the disks will be sent I had to download each file, most over a gig. To date I have been unable to get one plugin to work at all. Customer service is no help.

Even if I do get it to work, I would highly recommend that you don't use the download method or even DJ. I wish I could get my money back.

I bought the Matte Magic series and it works as advertised in Vegas Pro 11. Amazing results. Like having a CGI department on a low budget. (I have no connection to Digital Juice--just appreciation for innovations that allow improvement in production values at a great price.)
