Quick Overview

Create fog, god rays and diffusion.

Target Audience

This plug-in is meant for power users who need to relight scenes, animate photos and create mood and particle VFX via fog, diffusion and god rays.

Fog is the visual element that gives distance cues in an image. Adding fog, god rays and diffusion instantly is a time saver for vfx and creative color grading.

 

Depth can be faked for a 2D layer using a depth map. For most 2D images, and especially for video, it is not trivial to create a depth map. Noise generators can create the shape of a fog, with some tweaking.They do not create diffusion, scattering, dispersion, mist.

 

Prosya Fog does not require a 3D comp – but it will react to a camera in a 3D comp and simulate changes in fog and diffusion.

 

In summary, noise generator plugins can provide the shape of the fog. Prosya Fog provides the fog shape, diffusion, god rays, scattering, dispersion, mist. Also, Prosya Fog will work with any 2D video and photo. As a result it is released on both Premiere Pro and After Effects.

 

Fog has multiple components - a noise-based shape, diffusion (the reduction in clarity of objects), scattering (for example different fog color of light and shadow regions), light dispersion (different color fog based on view vector to the light source), mist (the reduction of chromaticity in obscured regions), variable density (different areas in landscape can have different fog density).

Value Proposition

Add an adjustment layer above the layers you want rendered, add the Fog plugin and generate an instant fog.

  1. Very fast (uses all cores) and easy to use.

  2. Easily add procedural god rays.

  3. Options for fog variability to allow for creative animation and fog shapes.

Qualifying Questions

  • Do you wish you could relight a flat, boring video to make it moody?

  • Do you want to add greater depth to your scene?

  • Do you require options for animation of photos?

  • Do you need creative options for your vfx and color grading?

Compatibility

After Effects and Premiere Pro Creative Cloud. Tested with CC 2017, CC 2018, CC 2019, 2020, 2021. macOS 10.12 and above or Windows 7 and above.

Installation

The easiest way to install and license is by using aescripts+aeplugins manager app: https://aescripts.com/learn/aescripts-aeplugins-manager-app/

After Effects plug-ins will have a plug-in .aex file or .plugin bundle and a pdf for documentation. The installer will extract .aex file or .plugin bundle to the mediacore directory – $mediacoreplug-ins\Prosya\<Plugin Name> and the pdf to $userhomefolder/Documents/Prosya/<Plugin Name>

In windows – $mediacoreplug-ins can be C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\7.0\MediaCore and $userhomefolder/ looks like C:\Users\<User Name> On a Mac, $mediacore can be /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore/

After successful install, Prosya plug-ins will appear under the Prosya folder inside the ‘Effects’ menu or under the ‘Effect & Presets’ tab in After Effects. If automated install does not work, try the manual installation. Manual installation also works if the plug-in is distributed as a .zip file.

Install 7-zip or any similar unzip utility. Right Click on the .zxp and click 7-zip->Open Archive.

a. Windows Install

Double-click on Win/ directory to view the .aex file. Extract .aex to the mediacore directory - C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\7.0\MediaCore

The "7.0" in the file path may differ on your setup; the steps are the same regardless. Double-click on Docs/ directory to view the .pdf file. Extract .pdf file to the Documents directory

b. Mac install

Double-click on Mac/ directory to view the .plugin bundle Extract .aex to the mediacore directory - /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore/

You can copy/paste that file path into the Go > Go to Folder... menu of Finder. The "7.0" in the file path may differ on your setup; the steps are the same regardless. Double-click on Docs/ directory to view the .pdf file. Extract .pdf file to the Documents directory
