SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the photography animation software that has been making big waves, officially launches. Already earning the reputation as "the next big evolution of photography," Plotagraph® Pro seamlessly synchronizes a myriad of algorithms to generate dynamic and realistic animation of a single, static image. Subtle rolling clouds, rippling water, hair flowing in the wind, breath movement of a hand-painted cheetah – all can be achieved with still photos and still art.
The Plotagraph Pro software is already being applied to advertising campaigns with FleishmanHillard, Wieden+Kennedy, Dodge, Coca-Cola, VitaCoco and Microsoft – as well as social content for Jay Leno. In celebration of the launch, Plotagraph® Pro is releasing a special collection of animated imagery.
"Plotagraph Pro is not only the future of photography, it is preserving, repurposing and reviving still imagery for the digital medium," says Plotagraph® Pro CEO and professional photographer Troy Plota. "In an era where dynamic content is king, Plotagraph Pro allows professional and hobby photographers, advertisers and content managers, artists and influencers to create an entirely new dimension of visual interplay."
The software works with any computer or operating system and functions nimbly through remote servers. Users simply upload JPG or PNG image files and can begin applying masks to areas that remain static, as well as directional flow treatments to areas that will convey movement. Animated images can be easily exported to GIFs, MOVs, MP4s, 4k files, and more. Plotagraph® Pro also generates a GIF link for easy social sharing.
Unlike other animation programs, Plotagraph® Pro works with a single image and does not require special equipment, additional image or movie files, or supplemented software programs. The animated file is backwards compatible and can also be easily exported to print without suffering quality or pixilation, since it starts as a high-res image file.
'The idea that I can take my entire back catalog of images and turn them into beautiful, mesmerizing animations is so exciting to me," remarked award-winning travel photographer Trey Ratcliff. "When people see the final Plotagraph result, their minds are blown. I'm beyond thrilled to have this Plotagraph Pro membership so I can continue to dazzle and amaze with old and new images alike."
George Redhawk – who is legally blind – is widely celebrated for his artistic command of static image animation and considered the master in the industry. The Plotagraph® Pro team has engaged Redhawk as a key consultant on the software. He continues to be involved in tutorials and will be instrumental in the development of new features and functions.
"Having George on board allows us to glean from a graphic genius, while commemorating his artistry and legacy," adds Plota.
The software is accessible via a SaaS-based membership starting at just $79. Members are not only able to download and apply the software, they receive regular tutorials, industry news, upgrades, as well as access to social platforms and stock galleries specifically for looping content.
"For photographers, creative directors and content managers, the ROI is immediate," says Plotagraph® Pro Co-Creator and President Sascha Scheider. "We are seeing huge gains of 400%-1000% in engagement on social platforms and Plotagraph Pro image pick-ups by major online outlets. Static image animation opens up a whole new arena in marketing, photography commerce and compelling communications."
