You can now add instant production value to your After Effects compositions by emulating expensive glass filters with the new Variable Diffusion Plugin from the maker Invisible Chainsaw.
The Variable Diffusion plugin for After Effects can emulate the look of in-camera light scattering that can be achieved by using glass filters.
Instant Production Value. Emulate expensive glass filters. Add expressive color.
This will allow you to easily add expressive color, make skin and faces look their best, and give visual effects shot that extra bit of realism that might otherwise be missing.
Variable Diffusion works on a proprietary algorithm that was developed by an industry professional cinematographer/colorist, and a PhD imaging scientist.
Variable Diffusion can push light & color to extremes, and still yield naturalistic “perceptually intuitive” results quite easily.
