The Foundry releases Tinderbox for Windows only Combustion

UK: Visual effects developer The Foundry has released its Tinderbox visual effects plug-ins and image-processing tools for Autodesk’s Combustion (Windows only) software to bring over 70 new effects to Combustion users. The Foundry’s Tinderbox range comprises four separate collections of plug-ins, including generators, creative visual effects and image-processing tools. Examples include: Sky, which generates realistic evolving skies, with controls for clouds, sun, haze, fog, atmosphere and sun flares; Water, which simulates the effect of water droplets rippling on a surface; Fire, for generating realistic animated flames; Colourist, for automatic colour correction and balancing; Starburst, which adds sparkles and highlights; BadTV, for simulating poor television reception; plus over sixty five other effects. Tinderbox for Combustion (Windows version) is currently shipping with nodelocked licenses available at US$500 per box. The complete range of four boxes is on offer for US$1,500 until 28 September 2007. Existing Tinderbox for After Effects 7.0 customers running a Windows version of Combustion on the same machine as the After Effects 7.0 Pro can download the Combustion (Windows only) builds from The Foundry’s website. Existing Tinderbox for After Effects 7.0 licenses will license the plug-ins to work on both Combustion and After Effects although customers will not be able to run both programs at the same time.
