"After playing with your Photoshop plugin for just ten minutes, I am already impressed by what Light! does and how artfully the effects are accomplished! What a delightful new tool to use whenever I need to add visual interest to a picture! Before purchasing Light!, I wasn't sure how often I would use such a specialized product. Now, I suspect that I'll be using it much more often than I had originally thought!
Steve Brennan, Communication Consortium, Inc.
"The Light! plug-in really does magic by converting dull, un-interesting photos into a good shot, even something special. It is very hard to find or shoot good compositions, so I am going to use this plug-in a lot, which I cannot say about most of the filters that ship with Photoshop."
Chris K., Finland
"55MM is a great product that I use constantly! It is a wonderful tool which works equally well in After Effects & Premiere! You have developed a gold mine!"
Clarke Lindsley, Professional Artists Group
"Composite Suite is the most valuable plug-in set in our toolbox. For a minimal investment, we added the ability to do complex composites within our Avid without making the round-trip out to After Effects. Selective Defocus is cool and so is Light Composite."
Kevin Hartman, Fresh Air Media
"I purchased 55mm and found that the plugins are great. They save me a lot of times for color correction and effects works. Really appreciated."
Andy, Chih-Jen Chang, Eclipse FX
"We use DFT Composite Suite and 55mm. First of all, they are some of the greatest tools we have! We work with an older AVID MediaComposer 7.2 and the DFT plug-ins render on this system very fast, better then any other plug-in that we own. The possibility of the effects are great! We especially like Light Composite, Color Grad, ND Grad, Non-Additive Mix, Composite, and Holdout Composite. Many of these effects we used to create in the on-line suite for a lot of money. It's a must for all AVID users!"
"The plug-ins are great. Especially when the budget doesn't include major color correction. We have Composite Suite plug-ins and the 55mm plug-ins for Avid Media Composer. We had a project that had bright orange objects in the frame throughout the show which needed to be toned down. The Selective Color Correct plug-in was the perfect solution for our problem. I was able to create a matte and isolate the orange objects and take some of the saturation out of them without effecting the rest of the picture."
"We also had a job were the actress had splotchy skin (freckles I think) so I used the 55MM Skin Smoother filter and I was able to smooth out her skin enough to get rid of the freckles and it didn't effect the rest of the picture."
Mark Hunt , Production West, Inc.
"By the way, I just did a title sequence for BBC London. Used CS to add film grain and contrast to DV-originated footage. Then used matte generator and finally keyed animation over the treated footage. The BBC thought the result looked as good as a sequence they had had done in a Flame. Great credit to CS!"
Tony Lazzerini, London
"I posted on the Avid-L looking for a specific light effect, came across Composite Suite demo and decided to buy it - we were desperate. It is easy to use. Our 13 episode sitcom, color corrected using Composite Suite's light composite, was aired on national RTP1. After this, we started taking advantage of Composite suite's other tools, always amazed with its great and simple matte extracting capabilities... And now we've receive the upgrade version, it's great to find the Fast Blur plug in included: it did wonders in a corporate film we edit for largest private bank institution. Bye, Bye avid blur"
Miguel Oliveira, Inziomedia,Portugal
"All I can say is: Composite Suite rocks! We have tried every plug-in available for the Avid, and these are by far the best!"
Robert Troy, Absinthe Pictures
"Digital Film Tools puts our Avid on the same level as high end machines like our Quantel Editbox."
Howard Winer WJZ-TV, Baltimore
"The amount of control and ease of use of the DFT Composite Suite is amazing. We use it all the time."
Gus Comegys, 7 Seconds
"To anyone who hasn't checked out these great tools, I can highly recommend them! Composite Suite gives the Avid Xpress almost as much functionality as a Symphony--albeit with rendering, but these buggers render pretty fast. It has a great color corrector--not just a color effect. The Matte tools (Generator & Repair) are easy and quick ways to generate a motion matte within the Avid, and Selective Blur has saved me more than once. Check them out!"
Greg Baker, Colorado Creative
"The image quality of our work was enhanced well beyond our expectations with the Composite Suite plug-ins. I can't imagine finishing our work with a comparable level of image quality on our Media Composer without them. Composite Suite adds amazing color correction power with unparalleled flexibility and speed of rendering."
Travis Gordon, Studio City
