Digital Anarchy Beauty Box

I took a quick demo yesterday with Beauty Box Video 3.0 here at NAB 2013. While I have seen it several times before, I never stopped to look at what it how simple it is to use.

Beauty Box is a plug-in for Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, After Effects and several other NLEs. There is also a version for Photoshop and Aperture. (No Lightroom yet. If you want to see it for Lightroom, I would suggest making some noise by emailing Digital Anarchy and letting them know you want it.)

Essentially, Beauty Box uses multiple algorithms to create a matte of skin tones and leaves alone facial details like teeth, hair and eyelashes. You can fine tune the matte for your given lighting conditions and skin tones; however, it’s a process that takes seconds even to fine tune it.

Hopefully, I’ll have a full review in the coming weeks; however, I wanted to pass along a coupon code that is valid only during NAB this week. Use the coupon code NAB2013 to get 25% any of the Beauty Box versions. The most common version for Premiere, AE or FCP is regularly $199; however, it’s only $149 this week with the code. You can see all the versions here on Digital Anarchy’s website.

You can get a nice overview of an older version of Beauty Box inside After Effects (still the same overall concept and workflow) with the following video.
