Digital Juice® announced today it is releasing a matching set of its popular royalty-free Jump Backs™ animated backgrounds and Juice Drops™ layered Photoshop® graphics titled "All Particles™". These particle-based animations and graphics are designed to provide just the right amount of sparkle and shine to draw attention to any production without getting in the way. Users will find everything from comets with sparkling tails on endless orbits, swarms of stars that pulse and glow, soft radiant embers gently falling, fountains of bursting light, to drifting glowworms of color and a shimmering horizon of shooting stars.
Jump Backs "All Particles™" contains 21 broadcast quality animations that seamlessly loop and average from 15 to 30 seconds in length. Both Standard Definition and High Definition volumes of "All Particles" are available with files provided in Quick Time® format 720x486 (SD) and 1920x1080 (HD) at 30 frames per second. All Digital Juice Jump Backs animations, including "All Particles," are completely customizable and can be used in any number of ways to enhance a video production including: as backgrounds or virtual sets, cropped or cut to make custom mattes, overlays, wipes, transitions, or lower thirds or stacked to produce completely new and unique looks. The free Juicer™ 3 utility provided by Digital Juice allows users to crop and scale to any number of formats including NTSC DV 720x480 or 720x576 PAL resolution.
The matching Juice Drops layered Photoshop® graphics takes the animations from its companion Jump Backs volume and reproduces them crisply at print resolution, in a handy layered PSD format so designers can customize their print projects with as much or as little detail from the matching animation as needed. There are 25 PSD files and designers can use the graphics flattened in their original composition or they can mix and combine layers from different backgrounds and volumes to create new and unique looks. Juice Drops layered Photoshop® files are at least 17"x11" at 300DPI so even the smallest element is shown in great detail. Print designers can tweak, delete, rearrange, colorize, scale, mix and add layers as needed. Each Juice Drop has an average of 10-20 layered elements with most having even more. Often described as "art you can take apart," Juice Drops allow artists and designers to begin every new project with beautiful and totally original source material and then customize it to fit their needs and express individual creativity.
Digital Juice® provides a free Windows® and Mac® utility, Juicer™ 3, that makes it easy to browse, search, and select from any of the Jump Backs or Juice Drops volumes. The animations can be copied and converted into formats that are compatible with most non-linear and linear editing systems that have a DVD ROM. The software also includes transformations like dynamic color effects and masking tools that allow users to customize the Digital Juice media to match their own creative projects. Print users can preview the layered PSD files within the Juicer 3 browser without having to load the full resolution file into Photoshop® to see the layers. In addition to using the layered Photoshop files right off the disc, Juicer 3 technology allows users to render an image from disc to hard drive into most major file formats includingJPEG, PNG, TGA, TIF, PSD, and BMP. Flexible catalog management and auto-updates allow for streamlined integration of new products.
