Imerge Pro 2.0 Overview
In this video we're going to take a look at the new features that were added in version 2 of Imerge Pro. You can learn more from the blog post on our website. Let's go ahead and jump right in. We've added our own GPU-accelerated RAW engine to Imerge, which improves the speed when importing images. It also gives you the ability to recover highlights- notice how the white sky in this image, when darkened, begins to show detail that wasn't there before. Several new export formats have been added to Imerge, including 16bit PNG, TIFF, single-layer
Open EXR, and HDR. A new crop tool makes it easy to resize your canvas, either by moving around a custom shape or by using one of the presets. You can now press Control I to bring up a new insert menu that allows you to quickly search and apply effects and masks, as well as add new layer types if you have nothing selected.
The snapping feature helps eliminate the guesswork of lining up layers. You can toggle this feature on and off, as well as specify which parameters will be considered when snapping. Both project and layer searches have been improved. Project searches now include layers and effects within. And layer searches can be narrowed down using various criteria. The interface can be swapped around, so that the controls are on the left. Effects can be double clicked and renamed to help keep things organized.
The Chroma Key effect has been given a Softness slider, to help blur the edges of your subject and keep things from looking too sharp. Stay tuned to the channel for more tutorials on Imerge Pro. Leave any questions down below and don't forget to subscribe.
