Vertus has released Fluid Mask 3, a masking software touted to quickly and easily separate problem images such as human hair and tree leaves.
The company says Fluid Mask 3 leverages a more effective edge detection system, along with the improved â€œSmart Blendingâ€ capability unique to the software.
Fluid Mask 3 presents a slider which enables the user to seamlessly switch between â€œSmart Blendingâ€ and standard feather blending. Next, within focused areas, the user may invoke complex edge and special hair blending algorithms, which, for the first time, automatically cut out tricky edges and difficult hair such as highlights and hair with wide color differences (e.g. black hair next to white hair against a grey background).
Fluid Mask 3 boasts improvements to the initial image processing time, enabling users who are operating multiple processors to realize increased speeds up to 40% faster than the previous versions. The result is a quicker transition from a base image editing program, such as Adobe Photoshop, into Fluid Mask.
