PolarPro, developer of products inspired by adventure, announced availability for its newest software offering, the Helios Cinematic Light Effects. These simple-to-use effects can easily be dropped into any video composition to help streamline post production workflow. With effects ranging from light leaks and lens flares to light transitions, Helios offers a variety of colors, styles and looks to that can easily fit the mood of any video edit. Retailing for $29.99, the Helios Cinematic Light Effects are currently available at https://www.polarprofilters.
Featuring 11 flare effects, eight organic light leaks, and 13 light leads/transitions, Helios offers a wide range of 4K elements that can quick help pilots and post production teams refine their video edits to a fine production quality. As with the recently launched Aurora Cinematic Color Presets, the new Helios effects are compatible with most popular video editing platforms including Adobe® products such as Premiere 9.0 or later, After Effects CC or later, as well as Apple® Final Cut Pro 7 or later, and the Avid Media Composer. To add one of the Helios effects to an edit, users simple drag-and-drop the element into their existing workflow, then adjust opacity and blending modes to their liking. To help those new to video editing, PolarPro has compiled a video tutorial to demonstrate the intuitive process, that video can be found here: https://vimeo.com/223344764
“We’ve always strived to help people capture the best possible images and video footage of their adventures, and the Helios Effects are a great example of our solutions that help users spend less time editing and more time filming.” said Jeff Overall, CEO of PolarPro. “Helios is compatible with any camera and video format, so it’s a great workflow addition that brings cinematic quality to the content captured across all cameras used in creating great stories and exciting videos.”
The Helios Cinematic Light Effects have been optimized for the specific lens profiles of the Mavic Pro and Phantom Pro 4 and Advanced. As it did with the popular Aurora Cinematic Color Presets, PolarPro is planning to expand on that library soon. With the effects properly optimized for each drone’s native camera, editors can easily splice together footage from multiple flight platforms without concerns for distracting color shifts.
PolarPro is offering a free 1080p download of the Helios Cinematic Light Effects to allow users to trial the new effects before they purchase. To access the full 4K or 2.7K versions, Helios will carry an MSRP of $29.99.
