Atlas: tone mapping for AE CS5

Stefan Minning released Atlas for After Effects CS5, for Mac only.

Atlas is a port of the pfstmo tone mapping operators. Tone Mapping, according to Wikipedia, "is a technique used in image processing and computer graphics to map a set of colours to another; often to approximate the appearance of high dynamic range images in media with a more limited dynamic range."

Atlas, one of Minning's 7 AE filters, is donationware (free) and open source. Stefan switched platforms, but the old versions of this software for Windows CS3 and CS4 are still available.

You write "for Mac only", but on his site he writes: "Operating Systems: Mac OS X and Windows"
