Plug-ins for Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro & After Effects, Motion 5


We wanted to look at the whole glow concept and see just how far we could advance it in terms of the science and the functionality and we think we’ve come up with something genuinely unique. The glow technology used here offers both impressive photorealism and countless ways of producing some really dramatic looks.


 -  Advanced exponential glow algorithm comprising six independently adjustable glow elements.


-  30 blend mode options provide an incredibly rich range of    compositing possibilities.


 - Extensive toolset for isolating and refining the area to be glowed, including alpha, luminance, channel operations, matte tools and a powerful HSV keyer option.


 - Multiple options for adjusting the spread, falloff and intensity of the glow.


 - A rich set of options for adding color to the glow including a great-looking chromatic aberration.


 - Sophisticated and powerful range of blending and compositing options.


 -  High Quality, Fast and Super Fast processing options optimised for quality and performance.


 -  Fully HDR compatible.




For Hawaiki Keyer 4 (HK4), we have rebuilt the matte extraction algorithm from the ground up to give you even better quality keys with even less effort


And we've added a whole range of exciting new features to help you key even more accurately and with even greater finesse:


 - Screen Clean — NEW in Hawaiki Keyer 4.5 is a sophisticated screen correction function that intelligently analyses the green or blue screen backing to remove defects and create an even screen, making most keys a lot easier to pull.


  - Two Keyers in One — A Primary and a Secondary keyer within the one plug-in. Tackle tricky problem areas much more easily while avoiding any compromise on the fine edge detail.


  - Mask Tracking gives you precise and powerful automated realtime tracking of the Secondary mask with the minimum of additional set-up and no need to pre-compute tracking data.


  - A new advanced matte extraction algorithm does more of the heavy lifting for you - clearing the backing and preserving edges while also giving those who need it more fine-grained control. In short, faster results and better edges, more easily.


 -  BG Match — Background Match automatically adjusts the edges of the foreground to match the luminance of the background.


 - Edge Replace — replace the edge of the foreground with pixels further from the edge, synthesising new pixels to replace unwanted edge artefacts.


  - Hawaiki Edge Tools — a new plug-in which can be added on top of the main keyer module. Provides standalone Light Wrap and Edge adjustments - including the new Fine Edge, Edge Replace and BG Match operations - that can be used with any image with an alpha channel.


  - Fine Edge is an innovative new feature in the Edge Tools Plug-in that darkens the outer edge and brightens the inner edge of the foreground’s semi-transparent pixels.


  - Hawaiki Slice — a powerful new image analysis plug-in.


 With a host of other professional features, Hawaiki Keyer is the best keying solution that you can buy, and for just $99 it's by far the best value.

Hawaiki Super Dissolve is a truly unique plug-in, exclusive to FCPX, that completely reinvents the dissolve transition with a whole host of advanced features that you simply won't find anywhere else.


 - In-depth control of the gamma encoding of the transition.


-  30 blend mode options provide an incredibly rich range of    compositing possibilities.


 - Extensive and comprehensive control over the transition animation curves.


 - A unique curve design interface that makes it easy to visualize exactly what you are creating.


 - Unique compositing technology allows for true asymmetric    dissolves.


 - Generate split dissolves where one half of the frame transitions through quicker than the rest.


 - Create glows and blooms and a variety of diffuse effects.


 - Dedicated dip to color and fade up/down modules.



The dissolve may be over a hundred years old, but Super Dissolve takes it to places you never thought possible.
