Digital Element, Inc.'s mission is to create top-quality computer artwork, software, and tools for computer artists and developers.
Digital Element, Inc. develops and publishes high-end art tools and plugins that recreate nature on your computer. WorldBuilder Pro and WorldBuilder Genesis, stand-alone packages that create 3D animating scenes, are at the top of the industry in terms of detail and power. Digital Element's photoshop and After Effects / Final Cut Pro plugins, including Aurora, Verdant, and Modelshop, allow Adobe users to create compelling nature effects easily and organically within 2D applications.
Aurora is the only Photoshop plug-in that gives Photoshop users true digital nature effects within Photoshop. Faster and more versatile than clip art and much faster and easier than Photoshop, Aurora specializes in water, sky, and lighting for outdoor scenes.
Aurora Sky is great if you want to create skies and clouds in your AE or FCP composition, but don't want to build them in a 3D program. It also keeps you safely tucked into AE’s production pipeline, so you don't deal with render or import issues.
Aurora Water is a unique After Effects plug-in which lets you create circular waves, add reflections, refraction, volumetric light rays and submerged objects. Aurora Water simulates all water types, from ponds to oceans.
Product Name: ModelShop
- CAD Software
Like Verdant and Aurora, Modelshop is easy to use and fast. Within minutes you can add any of the thousands of models available online to your picture – right from within Photoshop.
Love 3D plants and trees in Photoshop? In SoftImage? Do you like being able to modify the plants and randomize new plants on the fly? Do you wish you could make bigger modifications, like change a texture or make a plant from scratch?
Now you can. With Verdant Plant Mechanic, you have all of the power in an easy-to-learn user interface. You can make your own plants from scratch in minutes using the plant wizard and you can combine different plant parts in any combination to make just about any kind of plant imaginable.
