Impressionist: Looking Like Nothing’s Looked Before

  • Original, Pixel-Based Kinetic Graphic Styles Without Breaking The Budget



With a bottom-of-the-barrel budget, a commercial client asks you to quickly create stylized looks and artistic transitions for their production that no one has seen before.  With no animator or graphics artist on staff they’re depending on you to whip something up fast, creative and cheap…big surprise.



Dropping Impressionistfrom the Stylizers Collection onto your video will open a Pandora’s box of energetic, powerful and original graphic possibilities derived from your video. From hyperkinetic confetti to subtle pointillistic abstractions you can easily and quickly dial up or down the many energy, color and stylistic options.

A number of built-in randomizers assure that your looks don’t get repetitive or too predictable. You’ve seen animations created for commercials that looked rotoscoped…this gives you that lookwithout picking up a sweat or the checkbook.

Additionally, for unique graphical stylized transitions, Impressionist’s actions can be enlisted to create one-of-a-kind transitions that can help brand your production with its own distinctive style. Get ’em while they’re hot!



More Info: Impressionist is available in NewBlue’s Stylizers 5 Imagine and Stylizers 5 Ultimate packages, as well as the full TotalFX video editing toolkit (available in both subscription and perpetual options).
