(Wilmington, North Carolina--November 4, 2009) Digieffects® a developer of visual effects software plugins, today announced that Falloff Lighting is available for purchase. Falloff Lighting provides enhanced lighting for After Effects' built-in lights.
Falloff Lighting is much more like that of the real world where light naturally decays or "falls off" as surfaces increase distance from the After Effects light.
According to Robert Sharp, president of Digieffects, "Falloff Lighting is a great complement to After Effects' built-in lighting system. With After Effects it doesn't matter how far away a layer is from a light, it is still illuminated the same amount by that light. However, if you use Falloff Lighting, objects will appear dimmer the further away they are from the lights illuminating them.
