• StudioMagic 2 is not an upgrade of StudioMagic 1 the Pro-Panel. It is an entirely new plug-in

*StudioMagic 1 & StudioMagic 2 Differences

StudioMagic 1 & 2 are sister suites. They operate independently, but are easily docked together in Photoshop to use in a seamless workflow. They were designed to handle two important functions in compositing, initial image preparation and image assembly and enhancement. If StudioMagic 1 is the cake, StudioMagic 2 is the icing.

SM I: CutOut. ShadowCaster. LightBrush.

For prepping your subjects for placement into a new composite. CutOut easily removes your subject from it’s original background, it’s also used for removal and sky replacement. ShadowCaster is for creating a realistic shadow on your subject that matches the lighting in the new composite. LightBrush is for focusing attention on your subject once placed in the new composite.

SM II : Enviro. HyperZap. LightingEffex. Reflections. Compositor.

For enhancing the new composite that includes your subject. SM II changes entire seasons and daylight to sunset. Creates mirror and water reflections. Has a library of one-click accent images like birds, clouds, moons and rainbows. Can create natural and man-made lighting effects and adds punch to images that you want to make jump off the page.
