SAN FRANCISCO, CA – June 28, 2006 - Toolfarm Inc. announced today the acquisition of Buena Software, a plug-in developer for Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro, and Autodesk's Autodesk Combustion. Buena's products consist of Au Naturel, a plug-in for reproducing photographic effects on video, Depth Cue, a set of plug-ins for adding three-dimensional effects to video, and Effect Essentials, a set of plug-ins for enhancing creativity and productivity for working with video. Toolfarm Inc. will continue to develop and support the plug-ins under the Buena brand.
The Buena Software plug-ins for Adobe After Effects and compatible hosts were developed as effective processing tools to pick up on what the prominent software manufacturers overlooked. The plug-ins range from creative image processing and color manipulation to 3D depth effects.
"As a leader in After Effects plug-in distribution, Toolfarm has always been impressed with the Buena product line. Buena's tools allow videographers to create unique effects that larger plug-in manufacturers simply do not offer," said Colin Sharp, Toolfarm VP of Sales and Marketing. Sharp continued, "With this acquisition, Toolfarm can expand on the needs and requests of our customers."
