(San Francisco, California--July 1, 2009) Storek Studio, the creators of nVeil, the visually stunning new VFX plug in for Final Cut Pro users, announced today a new summer promotion and contest for new customers; the “nVeil UnVeiling” contest.
To participate, customers who purchase a copy of nVeil by July 25, 2009 will receive a second free copy upon submitting a personally drawn vector graphic ‘veil’ and a video clip of its use. User submissions received by October 25, 2009 will then be judged for graphic and video creativity.
“We are so pleased by the early response to nVeil from the Final Cut Pro community that we wanted to go a little further and really tap into the creative spirit of these digital artists,” said Rich Storek, creator of nVeil. “We designed this contest to do two things; one is to encourage as many artist/editors as possible to explore the creative potential of nVeil, and secondly, to share their results with the nVeil user community. We want our users to discover that the power of nVeil isn’t just what we’ve built into the product, it’s the ability to take creations even further by designing your own veils that capture your personal, signature style. This unique combination is what makes nVeil an invaluable tool in your VFX workflow.”

To participate in the “nVeil UnVeiling” contest, new nVeil customers simply are required to:

nVeil, How It Works
Leveraging a sophisticated new SVG file filtering engine, nVeil enables the creation of an entirely new digital art form in which video clips - with full motion and color - are filtered through SVG (Scalable Vector Graphic) ‘veils’ to create visually immersive and stunning imagery.
Working within Apple’s Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express or Motion, digital artists first apply nVeil as a video effect to any clip. Then, users simply choose a veil and adjust settings from eight parameters, transforming the video into a unique work of art. The nVeil effect veils the source imagery as a ‘curtain’ in front of the clip. The result is similar to a constantly changing stained glass design seen through a kaleidoscope. Demos of nVeil and a tutorials for its use are viewable at nveil.com
Pricing and Availability
nVeil is available immediately at an introductory price of $99, which includes its newly expanded library of 60 veils.
