Digital Film Tools, a developer of visual effects software, has released PhotoCopy, software for creating a photographic reproduction of a printed or graphic work made with a process in which a new image is formed by the action of proprietary image analysis, color, texture and light. Whether it’s still or moving images, the key attributes are copied from one image and applied to another, says Marco Paolini, founder and president, Digital Film Tools.
With Photocopy, you can pick from 94 Academy Award nominated movies, including “Apocalypse Now,” “Blade Runner,” “Frankenstein,” “Gone with the Wind,” “King Kong” and “The Lord of the Rings.” You can choose from 72 paintings from artists such as Cezanne, Chagall, Greco, Leonardo, Monet, Rembrandt, Renoir and Van Gogh.
You can select from 40 photographs by various masters of photography including Abbott, Andreev, Cunningham, Fenton, Nadar, Outerbridge, Stieglitz and Weston. With Photocopy, you can try one of 30 historical processes, some of which are Ambrotype, Cyanotype, Liquid Emulsion, Kallitype, Palladium, Salt Print, Vandyke and Wet Plate.
