New! S_FreeLens Effect
Lens whacking or free lens is a wildly popular camera technique not for the faint of heart. The technique involves shooting with a detached lens to create ethereal light leaks, distortion, and a moving focal point. Instantly add the dreamy romantic style without potentially ruining your camera.
New! Even Better Integrated Mocha Tracking
Wish you could use Mocha’s award-winning tools to track and mask effects like S_LensFlare, S_Zap, and even the new S_FreeLens? Now you can thanks to Mocha positional parameter tracking. Plus, if you working with splines isn’t your thing, the new Area Brush tool makes painting large track areas a breeze.
New! OpenColorIO (OCIO) Support
Long-requested OpenColorIO (OCIO) color management support is here! Apply and read common OCIO color profiles or load custom OCIO libraries. Make sure the Sapphire effect you’re working is seen as intended and, more importantly, as audiences will see it.
Sapphire’s photorealistic lens flares are a perennial Hollywood favorite. The 2020 release adds 16 new professionally-designed flares. There are now over 200 flares to choose from!
New! Builder Presets
Add 7 new stunning drag-and-drop presets to your toolkit.
New! Faster Renders
Sapphire 2020 has added even more juice under the hood thanks to optimized GPU (NVIDIA only) and CPU performance. Up to 3x render speeds on many effects.
