Au Naturel allows users to work on footage in a 32-bit per channel floating point linear RGB color space for more natural looking results when compositing, blurring, or correcting your footage. Depth Cue adds realistic depth effects to 3D layers. Swatch Buckler adds a floating color palette to After Effects' user interface. Effect Essentials includes 10 video effect plug-ins.

As part of this acquisition, Digieffects will streamline the product line-up and offer new, lower prices effective immediately. Effect Essentials and Au Naturel will be combined into one package called the Buena Effects Pack. The suggested retail price of this new package is $199 (formerly $249 and $149 respectively).

Depth Cue will remain a standalone plug-in with the same suggested retail price of $199.  Depth Cue users can also download, for free, OpenEXR, a plug-in developed by Industrial Light & Magic that reads depth and other channels from an EXR into After Effects.

Swatch Buckler (previously $49) is now available as a free download from

"Buena's tools are a perfect fit for our product line-up," says Robert Sharp, president of Digieffects. "Video editors and FX artists can create even more unique effects. With this acquisition, Digieffects can expand on the needs and requests of our customers."
