Westlake Village, CA 4/22/01 Andromeda Software Inc. today announced the release of the new Perspective Filter, a new multi-platform, Adobe Photoshop compatible plug-in. More information is available at company site www.andromeda.com.
A photograph is a flat image (2D) with height and width but no depth. Perspective Filter can be used to suggest or introduce the third dimension, depth, experienced in human vision.
Andromeda Perspective Filter is unique in that it uses a camera paradigm to introduce depth or perspective. The user interface provides a dynamic visual interface, which inspires creative use. The introduction of this new plug-in continues Andromeda's commitment to provide innovative plug-ins that are distinctive and beneficial.
A "virtual camera" navigational tool in the Perspective offers a "tilt" and "swing" motion. The "tilt" movement permits depth-of-field control of the image plane. Moving the virtual camera vertically up and down or right to left while focused on a stationary position accomplishes the "swing". The Perspective zoom function also gives the effect of a dolly, in which the camera moves closer to or away from the image. For those looking for a quick and intuitive perspective tool, Perspective is the one.
Perspective positions itself as the newest addition to Andromeda's Photographic Tools and Lens Effects along with the Series 1 Photography Filters, LensDoc, and VariFocus. Perspective differs from our LensDoc Filter in that LensDoc fixes whereas Perspectives introduces (perspective).
