Digital Anarchy has announced Ugly Box, a free filter for enhancing skin damage. It uses Beauty Box skin retouching algorithms to accentuate all the skin detail on undead talent.
This creates the effect of making talent look older, uglier, or just plain hideous. Ugly Box supports Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, and Apple Final Cut Pro 7 & 10.0.6.
The Beauty Box Video plug-in has been used to reduce blemishes, wrinkles and makeup problems on film, video and photos. Since version 2.0, Beauty Box also has the ability to make skin look worse. Ugly Box breaks out that functionality into a separate tool. This free filter automatically tracks the skin tones in a video and masks out those areas, allowing users to enhance the undead skin texture or make deathly white color correction to the skin areas.
Users who want more control over their subjects’ skin can purchase Beauty Box Video 2.0. Beauty Box makes talent look better by removing blemishes, wrinkles, and makeup problems, says Digital Anarchy President Jim Tierney. Ugly Box is free and can be downloaded at http://digitalanarchy.com/demos/ugly.html
Ugly Box runs in After Effects 7.0–CS6, Final Cut Pro 10.0.6, Final Cut Pro 7, and Premiere Pro CS4–CS6. Beauty Box Video 2.0 is priced at US$199. Beauty Box Video runs in After Effects 7.0–CS6, Final Cut Pro X, Final Cut Pro 7, and Premiere Pro CS4–CS6.
The products run on Mac 10.5–10.8, Windows XP–7 and Vista 32- or 64-bit systems. Demo filters and samples are available at www.digitalanarchy.com .
