28th February 2000 Sapphire Innovations announces 'Sapphire Pack 1 - 10
Plugins for Adobe Illustrator 8.

Sapphire Innovations, today announced Sapphire Pack 1, a powerful new set
of plugins for Illustrator 8.

The set is for mac and pc. 10 plugins in all. Each plugin comes with a huge
range of options. Each plugin handle selected multiple paths. Also included
in the plugin is a set of layer options to allow the plugin's effect to be
spread across multiple layers, these layers can then be used in other
applications such as Flash(tm). The plugins come with scaling effects;
rotation effects so paths can be rotated around a single point or a certain
path or the path's own centre; and displacement effects so the duplication
plugin can place a path at increasing distances and accelerating and
decelerating distances from the original location in the vertical and
horizontal directions. Most of the plugins also have colour change effects so
the paths can fade into the background or get darker or lighter, again
uniformly or accelerating with maximum and minimum bounce effects.

The following plugins have been included with this set

Duplication plugin
This plugin duplicates a path over the vertical and horizontal. It varies the
distances, the sizes of the paths, the colour of the paths, stroke widths, it
also patterns the repeats of the paths. It also has rotate features and layer
features.

Grid plugin
This plugin generates lines. Vertically and horizontally, comes with a huge
range of options to change the colour, stoke width, thickness, length, angle
of the generated lines.

Random Clutter
Generates a random selection of squares, polygons, spirals, circles, stars,
and more. Again, varying the height and width, elements related to the shapes
so for a star you can control how many spokes stars will have. Placement
control, control of the generated path colours.

Round Duplication
Rotates a path around user defined centre, creating multiple copies of that
path. Also has a feature to repeat this set of copies outwards from the
rotate centre (and the ability to vary various aspects of the repeat
duplication). The paths can be scaled, angled, colour changed, line widths
changed, displaced, and more. The effect can also be applied over multiple
layers. There is also a skip/create pattern feature to create more complex
path creations. Multiple paths can be selected and rotated. Paths can be
rotated around their own centre or a set point on the path or around a
particular path.

Inset plugin
This plugin creates scaled copies of the original path or paths. Also has
layer options, colour effects, displacement and angular options. This can
create incredible effects with text. There is also a distorted inset option
so you can create really odd distorted contour paths. Have the path fade away
as it insets to get a blurry inset effect.

Random colour plugin
This plugin takes the select objects and adds a certain percentage of colour
to the path but applies this randomly between the selected range. There is a
threshold facility so only those paths with a certain colour range will be
affected. The fill or the stroke can be affected. A complete random fill
option also exists.

Star Creator plugin
Creates multiple star shapes. So instead of just having an average star you
can have a star of 60 spokes but with each of those alternating in distance
from the centre or having the spokes flow outwards and inwards throughout the
path of the star.

Sharp edge frame tool
Creates jagged edged frame paths. Creates subtle or really intense frames.

Spiral plugins tool
Creates triangular spirals. Polygon spirals and square spirals. Have the
spiral gap accelerate outwards or have gaps between the spiral paths or have
the spiral change colour as it extends outwards. Distort the spiral gaps or
add a star option to create complex star spirals.

Pie slice plugin
Splits the path or selected paths into multiple slices (depending on the
number of points in the path), towards a pre-defined percentage of the centre
or a selected number of user defined centres.

Demo versions exist on the i-us.com site and at
http://www.sapphire-innovations.com
