Curious gFx helps create movie magic in top film effects facilities

Curious gFx, the latest groundbreaking product from Curious Software, is winning plaudits from the international postproduction community and has already been used to great effect on a number of prestigious film and television projects.
Since its initial launch last summer, the powerful Curious gFx raster paint, rotoscoping and retouch software has won acclaim from companies as diverse as Phoenix Editorial and ESC Entertainment in the US and Weta Digital in New Zealand, winner of an Academy Award for its visual effects work on the final Lord of the Rings film, ‘Return of the King’.
Available in 8-bit and 16-bit configurations, Curious gFx software provides all the tools required for painting and rotoscoping in an effects environment. Both configurations, Curious gFx Pro and Curious gFx Pro+, are now shipping in version 2.5, and offer the most powerful paint engine for moving images; the most sophisticated new roto-matte system and a superb range of features for wire and rig removal or content restoration. All of these features are fully integrated into a resolution independent layered compositing and effects system, with a single intuitive and powerful user interface, making Curious gFx the new choice for paint, retouch, and rotoscoping in television, HD and film.
Wellington-base Weta Digital was among the first to discover the versatility of this new software. Quentin Hema, Weta’s Paint and Roto Supervisor, said: “For the past three months, the Weta Digital 2D Paint Department has been using Curious gFx and has found it to be an excellent package. Curious has been very quick to implement change requests and product suggestions. We have found Curious great to deal with."
