This is by far the best prize I have ever won. Yeah, I won the GenArts Sapphire plugins for Shake just for watching the GenArts Reels (and filling in a small form). The prize is so great it even beat the 5 out of 6 numbers I got in the lotto over 5 years ago. However, besides the monetary value of of the prize there is the usability value; I will find great use for this both in my personal projects as well as the stuff I do for Church.
I did play around with the trial version a while back for a music video I did, unfortunately I can’t show that because of copyright restrictions. But I have already started messing around with the plugins, here is my first creative test
If you want the actual Shake project files I can share them for you. Of course they will be heavily laden with the Sapphire plugins.
