Visual effects innovators add a ray of light to any creative project

Digital Film Tools, developer of visual effects software, today announced the availability of Rays and reFine -- brand new Android apps for photographers.

Rays allows users to easily create stunning and realistic light ray effects in any creative project. Known as volumetric lighting in computer graphics, or crepuscular rays in atmospheric optics, this dramatic effect adds polish and style. Create shafts of light streaming through clouds, rays filtering through a forest canopy, or beams of light on a foggy night. Rays adds a striking and dramatic quality to any image. "Since the rays are only added to highlight areas, they have the effect of passing through objects and simulate a third dimensional quality," comments Marco Paolini, Founder and President, Digital Film Tools. “This new app offers photographers a unique way to enhance their images – literally brightening them with rays of light. We are excited to see how photographers add life to their images with Rays.”

reFine offers artists a new tool and technique for performing selective sharpening, detail enhancement, and edge-aware smoothing. “reFine re-invents the way you sharpen and smooth images,” remarks Marco Paolini. “Images take on a hyper-realistic, almost 3D look when adjusted to the extreme. More subtle adjustments will sharpen soft photos or, at the other end of the spectrum, smooth fine details like skin blemishes. We are confident that photographers will enjoy enhancing their images with reFine as much as we have.”
