Create photorealistic composites using the Autodesk? Toxik? complete, high-end toolset for real-time, HDRI film procedural and 3D compositing. Toxik features award-winning keying and color correction tools, as well as GMask, motion blur, DOF, and Bicubic warping, enabling artists to manipulate image distortion and perspective and create flawless imagery. Toxik also supports multiple channel OpenEXR files and 64-bit architecture.
Autodesk Toxik 2008 is a stand-alone version that includes new tools to seamlessly integrate CG footage into 2D composites. Designed to provide greater interoperability with Maya and other 3D applications, Toxik 2008 maintains highlights and reflections within 3D renders, even when blurred, without clamping images.
Autodesk Toxik 2008 Key Features
Complete 3D environment gives artists greater control and creative freedom by adding virtual cinematography features directly into the compositing environment. Reaction features unlimited layers at any image resolution, a schematic flowchart with hierarchical parenting, bicubic manipulations, multiple cameras, unlimited light sources, shadow casting, tracking and much more.
The Autodesk Toxik gestural user interface is designed specifically to meet the unique demands of visual effects creation. The Touch UI is highly optimized for interactivity and a more fluid application workflow.
Simply drop compositions, layers, or tools into Paint, letting Toxik automatically construct the scene graph. Retouch images and mattes. Work with unlimited layers, reveals, clones, blend modes, and custom brushes. See your painted results immediately in context with your composition and get your effects work finished faster.
Automated and manual dust removal tools enable fast and accurate cleanup of dust, sparkle, hair, and other film damage. Support for infrared dust detection and motion vector data, plus options for spatial and temporal image analysis provide superior results.
Simplifies complex keying tasks while producing precise results. The Keyer Super Tool combines sophisticated keying technology with an intuitive, easy-to-use interface.
The Photo Lab interactive high dynamic range (HDR) color corrector lets you work with HDR images more efficiently, giving you better control over exposure settings as well as shadow and highlight details. This allows you to better light background plates and CGI elements to accurately match the overall tonality of the composition.
Change the speed of a clip to make the action appear faster or slower. You can animate the speed and timing parameters, and apply motion blur to create advanced timing changes. Motion estimation technology provides retimed footage with smoothly interpolated frames that produce convincing motion effects.
Grain simulation adds or removes realistic grain characteristics to any footage. Automatic grain analysis accurately matches the grain profile of a reference image for seamless integration of CG and film elements.
Add multiple garbage masks for complex rotoscoping tasks. Selective edge softness provides fine control to raise the quality of your compositions.
Add realistic camera effects such as directional blur and radial blur to your composition.
2D Transform provides a streamlined method for adding and editing transform nodes. Multiple linked transforms add extra animation control while concatenation and Jinc filtering ensure the highest quality results.
A variety of image warping tools let you easily warp and distort images. The new tools include: Crumple, Displace, Magnify, Mirror, Pinch, Polar, Ripple, Twirl, and Wave.
The Autodesk-designed Jinc filter retains fine details after images have been transformed. On an image that has been repositioned, rotated, scaled, and then transformed back to its original form, the Jinc filtered result is sharper than the Mitchell filtered image but without the artifacts visible using the Nearest filter.
The Comparison Tool offers region and split views to quickly display your results in context with reference frames or other nodes within your composition.
Lens Distort corrects or simulates lens distortion in a clip. Quickly remove lens distortion, or apply lens distortion for perfect integration with other layers containing distortion.
This provides a useful tool for viewing high dynamic range (HDR) images on a limited dynamic range display such as a computer monitor. You can also use Remap Color as a 1D LUT tool to remap a clip?s color output using interactive histogram and color curve tools.
Quickly clamp colors that are outside a given color gamut. This is useful when non-HDR tools need to be used with HDR images, or clamping negative color components prior to color correction. An alpha channel and a pseudo-color map is generated to conveniently display the out of range pixels.
Burn-in text over a clip to facilitate review and approval. Insert custom text and automatic production data such as frame number, timecode, date, time, etc.
Crop now allows you to keep a fixed image size regardless of input dimensions.
Improving interoperability between Toxik and 3D applications, this feature lets you recover an alpha-unpremultiplied foreground image from an alpha-premultiplied image whose foreground may have been composited on any solid color.
Advanced 2D Tracking
High-speed, interactive tracking technology for fast, smooth image stabilization and seamless matching of elements to moving objects.
Floating Point OpenEXR support
Great results start with quality source imagery. Create 32-bit OpenEXR images in Autodesk? 3ds Max? and Autodesk? Maya? software, as well as other applications, and then manipulate them easily within Toxik to provide realistic color and lighting details.
Media Dependency Tracking
Effectively manage your project data with scripts to list compositions and media used for finals or intermediate results. Toxik software features efficient archiving of media and composition files for backup, offline, and near-line storage. Intelligent dependency tracking allows for compositions to be restored with alternative paths, providing facilities flexibility in managing storage and workstation resources. UNC path support enables access to files and directories across your entire network.
Today?s challenging shots can contain many layers of data, resulting in a process-tree that can be quite complex. Be more efficient by annotating your compositions with directions for further work, or to provide reminders for yourself and other artists collaborating on a composition.
Superior CG interoperability is achieved through Python bindings in Toxik and Maya. This allows for the retention of all metadata, including the ability to properly load cameras, axis, and world space information, as both applications use the same data model. Transparent metadata management allows Toxik to share its metadata with other Autodesk applications as well as third party applications.
Maya users ?Export to Toxik? which creates an XML IMSQ file which describes the Maya scene, its render layers and any associated image sequences, as well as the Toxik destination. The Toxik IMSQ Reader Python script ingests this file and updates the Toxik file information.
Autodesk? Lustre? Color Management
Unified color display across Autodesk finishing, effects, and grading solutions. Work with confidence as Toxik accurately displays the same look as the final projected result.
Autodesk? Wiretap? technology provides integrated file exchange with Autodesk? Inferno?, Autodesk? Flame?, Autodesk? Flint?, Autodesk? Fire?, and Autodesk? Smoke? advanced systems applications. Read and write frames from Autodesk? Stone? framestores and benefit from the ultimate content creation pipeline.
Publish to Stone
Artists can now automatically soft-import rendered images into Flame and Smoke systems.
