DREAM BIGGER


Autograph is the new leading application that allows digital artists to reach the creative and artistic heights of the future. Crafted with both the motion design and visual effects industries in mind, Autograph allows artists to work with speed and precision.



Limitless animation

Keyframes are not the only way to animate parameters in Autograph. Animators offer over 45 predefined interpolation types. Each parameter can be linked to another or used by one of the many available modifiers.

Go beyond effects with modifiers
Modifiers apply transformations through parameters and they are applicable to any source type. Use them to multiply a number, shorten a word, blur an image, or warp a 3D object. Concatenating modifiers makes it possible to define precise and complex processes, while remaining easy to understand.
Scatter and distribute dozens of images
Whether you want to bring hundreds of logos to life with shared animations or scatter layers in specific spots, the instancer is the prime tool for mass animating graphic elements, positioning them on a grid, or for executing any other complex animation.
A complete 3D environment
Based on Disney/Pixar USD standard, Autograph’s 3D environment allows you to create and import complex scenes in order to render and composite on the fly, all within the same software. An incredible time saver for the multiple iterations in today’s productions. Autograph comes with Filament, a high-quality real-time physically-based renderer.

Responsive design tool for videos
Each composition can be modified in real time or when rendered in a different format than that of the original. Autograph provides a set of tools that allow you to build responsive design compositions. Layer positioning and sizing can be relative to the format of the composition, which can also be animated.
Composite multiple passes easily
Autograph can read and write OpenEXR files and allows you to quickly and easily assign a pass to a layer, as simply as you would with a JPEG, so you can get increased control over images with optimal quality. Extract all layers from PSD files in the same way.
Create your own tools and templates
A composition can display front-end control parameters and be packed in one file, allowing you to create tools, generators, or custom effects. Shadertoy integration lets you develop your own source images.

Seamless interface

The high standards of modern productions require artists to work more and more efficiently. Autograph provides smooth accelerated access to all features, overview previews, and immediate feedback when setting up projects.

High-precision graphics engine

Image processing is done in a 32-bit per channel linear colorspace workflow, ensuring optimal image quality without compromise. Preserve original image resolution and vector graphics during transformations.

Dozens of effects. Colossal compositions.

Autograph provides unlimited creativity with tons of effects. The use of both the CPU and GPU makes it possible to work on large-scale images, all with incredible responsiveness when setting up projects.

Generators for maximum creativity

Image generators such as gradients or fractals can produce graphic sources at an infinite scale, so you don’t have to worry about size limitations. They can also be used as masks or as any other secondary layer source, even with added modifiers.

Compositions as textures

Each 3D object can use a previously animated composition as a material source. All 2D environment tools can be used in 3D renderings without restrictions or the need to switch between multiple software programs.

Generators for all data

Generators are not limited to just images. Generate numbers, character strings, or even 3D objects. Simple and easy to use, Autograph makes it possible to match the precision of nodal systems, without the overhead of visual programming.

Links and constraints, without a single expression

A convenient connection system between parameters allows you to create complex relations and share any given group of elements, all without writing a single line of code.

Share modifiers between layers

Thanks to the share group option, generators and modifiers can be shared between several layers or parameters. Unlike copying, any modifications made are applied to all layers and parameters that use these shared resources.

Easily link external data

Separate graphic and editorial tasks by easily linking your external data directly into your projects. Create an animated weather map or sporting event opening in seconds by simply modifying table values.

Unfold sub-compositions

Using a composition as a layer source is one of the most common tasks; however, most programs require users to open the composition to access its layers. Autograph allows you to unfold a sub-composition to edit its content directly.

2D and planar tracking

Every VFX project needs tracking and stabilization. Autograph provides a solid 2D tracker with different models ranging from simple location to affine and perspective, as well as a fast planar tracker. You can also use motion vectors through our vector corner pin.



Standards-compliant

Autograph supports the Open EXR file format and uses OpenColorIO for color management. Both the ACES 1.3 and default built-in OCIO configurations ensure a state of the art imaging workflow.

OpenFX support

Autograph supports the OpenFX standard so that you can use a large number of external effects and generators. This opens the door to hundreds of compatible plugins, including those from RE:Vision Effects such as Twixtor and Reelsmart Motion Blur.

Dozens of image and video formats 

Autograph can read and write a multitude of video formats such as Quicktime, MP4, WebM, MKV, MXF, and GIF. It also provides the latest codecs like VP9, H.264, HEVC, and even AV1. Work with a wide variety of still image formats including JPEG, PNG, PSD, SVG, OpenEXR, HEIF, TIFF, DPX, and WEBP.

Available to everyone, on multiple platforms

Autograph is available on Windows, Linux, and Mac, including a native port for the new M1 architecture. Designed to work even on less powerful portable devices, it will be able to maximize the potential of the fastest workstations!
