Scarab Darkroom 2.25

The new version of Scarab Darkroom is out with 50 new cameras, major image quality improvements, and many bug fixes. The "hybrid" demosaic algorithm is now potentially state of the art in terms of detail rendition. (Note: this is will probably be made the default in the next version. For now you should switch to this in the preferences, which you can access through the cogwheel icon in the upper right corner.)

Updates to existing customer will go out later today.

A 64 bit version is coming soon, which will add support for higher resolution cameras.

Note: the price will rise to 49 Euros at the beginning of November, so grab it for 39 Euro while you can!

 

 

OS X version of After Effects Star Filter fixed for CC 2015 and El Capitan

I have recently resolved some compatibility issues with the After Effects plug-in. If you have bought the 2.0 version and are experiencing crashes with it on OS X, send me a message to get access to the fixed version!

 

Scarab Darkroom 2

We are pleased to announce the availability of Scarab Darkroom 2.0. It features noise filtering, chromatic aberration correction, split toning, ability to work in Adobe RGB color space, and more... The program is available for purchase here for $49. A free version is still available, and has been renamed to Scarab Darkroom Lite. No features have been removed compared to earlier free versions. We would also like to thank everyone who reported bugs during beta testing.

 

Old news

Scarab Darkroom has gotten numerous updates over the past few months. Several problems have been ironed out, and also a batch of new cameras are supported. Image quality issues have been resolved with Canon files, colour adjustments are much faster with large images, and much more...  The premium (paid) version of the program is on the horizon, which will include good noise filtering and other features.

In other news: Jeremiah Hall wrote a nice review of the After Effects star filter plug-in on doddleme.com.

Since then I have reduced the price of the plug-in to $49. Toolfarm Inc. is now an official reseller, but I encourage you to buy it through this site (- you support the author more + get instant download link, which I think they only give you with a delay for this plug-in).

 

Star Filter Plug-in 2.0 for After Effects

We have just released a major update to our star filter plug-in for Adobe After Effects, and it is now available for Windows and Mac! The plug-in is now perfectly suited for applying the effect on texts and titles thanks to a several changes, but at the same time it is still a very photo-realistic simulation of star lens filters. You can read about the changes in detail on the product page.

The plug-in is available for purchase for $59. Existing customers will receive a free update.
