IBC 2013: The maker of popular post production suite Mistika, Spanish company SGO, has released a new software compositing app called Mamba FX.
Mamba FX has what SGO calls a "brand new intuitive node-based graphic interface" and provides an entire vfx suite, including keying, tracking, painting and restoration. Its features can be further extended through OFX-compliant vfx plug-ins.
The software enables unlimited compositing layers and effects and can also run other SGO feature options (at additional cost) including its stereo 3D toolset for shot by shot-based corrections.
It's "aimed at compositing at all levels, from the highly creative indie market through to major TV and studio productions," says SGO.
“Responding to market demand, we have been working on delivering a suitable, sleek and dedicated product that specifically serves the direct needs of vfx artists of all levels within all budgets everywhere," says Miguel Angel Doncel, CEO of SGO. "From the learning student, the freelancer working from home through to professionals in facilities that may require numerous reliable and stable vfx stations, Mamba FX is for everyone.”
“It is very exciting for SGO to be entering a different market to the one in which Mistika has become so successful," adds SGO's Director of Global Sales & Operations Geoff Mills. "Mamba FX is a revolutionary product that brings SGO's advanced technology to all compositors at all levels and at an incredible price. And this is just the beginning for Mamba FX, there are plenty of exciting developments still to come.”
Effects can be constructed and reviewed either directly in real-time or processed at "a blistering rendering pace." Alternative compositing systems, believes SGO, "can be notoriously sluggish, leaving operators and clients alike frustrated as they lose creativity due to a loss in interaction and slow renders."
Mamba FX will be available to order online later in the year (at www.sgo.es/shop), which also provides access to tutorials and forum support. The company calls the system "aggressively priced", with an introductory cost for pre-orders of the software available for £199. Currently it only works under Windows.
