CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – May 27, 2010 – GenArts, Inc., the premier provider of specialized visual effects software for the film, television and video industries, announced today the immediate availability of GenArts Sapphire™ 5 for Adobe After Effects. Unveiled in April at NAB 2010, Sapphire 5 raises the bar in visual effects by coupling the creativity, quality and reliability Sapphire is known for with GPU-optimized performance, a range of new effects and transitions, and full CS5 compatibility.

GenArts Sapphire has gained a following among the world’s best visual effects artists as the industry-standard plug-in suite. Used in countless films, television broadcasts and commercials, Sapphire is the essential tool in the professional artist’s toolbox.

  • CS5 compatibility—Sapphire 5 is 64bit and fully supports Adobe’s new CS5 release.
  • All at a special upgrade price (50% off the regular upgrade price) designed to make the transition to CS5 as seamless as possible for current Sapphire customers.

“While visual effects are certainly essential in today’s film and television industries, artists are constantly challenged to create fresh, compelling content that sets them apart from their competitors -- on budget and on time,” said Steve Bannerman, CMO, GenArts. “With Sapphire 5 in their arsenal, After Effects artists will be able to push the limits of their creativity, generating one-of-a-kind looks without sacrificing deadlines.”
