Profound Effects Releases Useful Things 1.5

Profound Effects, Inc. is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Useful Things version 1.5.  Leading the list of improvements is a totally new user interface that streamlines workflow and support for Type 1 and OpenType fonts on both Windows and Mac OS X and .dfont fonts on Mac OS.

Four more "generators" are included in Version 1.5. Generators are a unique innovation in Useful Things. Generators are Useful Things components that plug in themselves to other Useful Things effects. Swapping a generator that is plugged into another effect provides a completely new look to the finished effect. For example, swapping one "shape" generator for another in a particle system effect completely changes the look of each particle without changing any of the particle system's dynamics.

In addition to remarkably flexible particle system effects, Useful Things offers many other types of effects that are unique to Useful Things.  Motion graphics designers will appreciate the many effects in Useful Things that generate motion graphics themselves. To understand the significance of this, consider a traditional effect like a blur that is applied to media created elsewhere. Many Useful Things effects, applied to a simple solid, actually generate interesting and appealing media to which traditional effects could be applied. Create a solid, add Useful Things, and enjoy cool motion graphics with minimal bother.

Many existing Useful Things effects have been updated or their capabilities expanded. Finally, Version 1.5 offers a substantially upgraded particle system engine that lays the ground work for exciting new capabilities in the future.

Useful Things 1.5 carries a list price of $395 and is available immediately. Owners of previous versions can download Version 1.5 at no charge from the Profound eXchange, an online repository of free effects and software updates.
