topic icon Sapphire v9 upgrade for Davinci Resolve

We have just upgraded our older version of Gen Arts Sapphire to the latest cross-host version 9 to run in After Effects, Premier Pro and Davinci Resolve. This version of the software works with any OFX application and so will work with Blackmagic Fusion Studio too.

We first started using Sapphire plugins with Final Cut Pro back in 2003 and enjoyed the great effects it helped us add. Sapphire created very high quality effects through FCP and photoshop - adding lighting, complex warping and adding raindrops to scenes using z-masks. The latest version of Sapphire is packed full of new features from light leaks and digital noise to Aurora and Bokeh effects right in the time line with presets and advanced controls. You can create your own effects and use these again on other projects too. I am looking forward to learning the new features and adding some extra special visual effects/VFX to our videos.

See the new features of Sapphire 9 trailer video linked above above from Gen Arts.
