Digital Film Tools has released a new plug-in, PhotoCopy for Adobe After Effects, Apple Final Cut Pro, Avid Editing Systems, Apple Aperture, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom:
"We have analyzed the brightness, color, tone, detail, grain and texture of some of the world’s greatest movies, paintings, photographs and historical photographic processes. The DNA of these masterpieces can now be applied to your own images with PhotoCopy. The color, tone and brightness of the original work are replicated while the texture, grain and detail are simulated. If you have images that you would like to copy and apply their attributes to other images, just create, save and apply these custom presets to other images."
It looks like a combination of blend modes, texturizing, and displacement made easy.
Update: Marco Paolini adds, "Chatter won't be an issue in After Effects or any of the motion hosts. The grain randomizes and looks natural. Presets that contain texture are static and do not randomize."
