The ULTIMATE Dissolve Transition Plugin for Your Projects!

Download the demo pluginDissolveMaster™ is an all-new hardware-accelerated video transitions plugin for Adobe Premiere Pro, Premiere Elements, Adobe After Effects, Sony Vegas, Sony Vegas Movie Studio, CyberLink PowerDirector, Magix Movie Edit Pro, and Magix Video Pro. It is the ultimate tool to create dissolves and fades of all types including film dissolves, soft directional dissolves, blur dissolves, glow/flash dissolves and beautiful dissolve transitions never before available. It is a great enhancement even if you are a "cuts and dissolves" editor, providing subtle ways to lead your audience’s eye within a scene using the unobtrusive, clean aesthetic of the dissolve transition.

DissolveMaster is also more than a video transitions tool -- it can organically animate/flow any video effect within a single clip, such as color changes, tonal adjustments, blurs, and other visual effects, even those from other third-party video effects plugins! Now you can easily reveal or fade video effects in a way that relates visually to your scene's content rather than the standard approach of ramping a video effect's strength uniformly over an image. (View the movies below to see the huge difference.)

Pixelan DissolveMaster Tutorial -- Six Easy Steps

The above image shows interface for Premiere, PowerDirector, Movie Edito Pro, and Video Pro users. The Sony Vegas version has an OFX interface. The After Effects version uses a standard AE effects plugin interface.

Choose visually from nearly 500 presets, including your own saved favorite presets. All are customizable. DissolveMaster also includes dozens of powerful "section" presets you can quickly click and mix into hundreds of fresh looks, and a large animated Effects Browser window to easily compare/choose presets and effect variations. Or click its Recent button to instantly access a recently applied effect!

DissolveMaster Feature Chart -- film dissolves, effect presets, etc. Pixelan user reviews & testimonials I have built-in dissolve transitions in my editing software... why buy DissolveMaster?

Standard cross-dissolves, additive-dissolves, and simple film dissolve transitions in video editing software do not provide adjustability or customization to achieve exactly the look you desire that best relates to your clip content. DissolveMaster gives you complete creative control over dissolve transitions and fades. DissolveMaster also can animate/flow other effects and video effects plugins within a single clip's image. See the chart at right for a complete list of features. All of this is at a very affordable price!

Does DissolveMaster have special hardware requirements?

DissolveMaster is a hardware-accelerated plugin which uses your computer's video/graphics chip to accelerate its rendering. Therefore, a DirectX 9 compatible graphics card is required. A DirectX 10 compatible card with at least 512 MB video memory is recommended for HD and high bit-depth editing. Even if you know you have a compatible card, we highly recommend you take a moment to check your system before buying by downloading our small Hardware Checker. (Here's the zipped Checker in case your browser's security software prefers that.) It will quickly show if your system fulfills the minimum requirements. Intel GMA 8xx and 9xx video are not supported, for example. Some users have a compatible-sounding card, for example, but the card or its driver does not fully implement DirectX.

Are help or tutorials available?

Yes, please see our DissolveMaster tutorials/help.

How is the DEMO different than the purchased version?

The demo overlays an X on the plugin’s output. Upon purchasing, the X will automatically disappear and the demo will be automatically uninstalled. There will be no need to re-apply DissolveMaster in your project, saving you time.

Is DissolveMaster only a download?

Yes, it is a single 20 MB download. You can even download it on a different computer, if necessary, then transfer the installer file with a USB key, CD-R, or other media onto your editing computer before installing.

What happens if someday my computer crashes and I lose the downloaded file or serial number?

Use our handy re-download form to get a FREE re-download anytime. There is no risk! :)

Can I install on more than one computer of mine?

Our license allows use in two different computers by the same user (such as a laptop "for the road" and a desktop at home) IF the two computers are not used AT THE SAME TIME. To edit on two computers simultaneously, such as for a video production business, a HALF-price second license is available from us on our special order form for new users (or our upgrade form for users who have already purchased DissolveMaster).

Will the After Effects version also work in Premiere Pro?

Sorry, no. Each plugin version has different code and only works in the video editing program specified. The good news is that any buyer/user of one version of DissolveMaster can buy an additional version for only half-price!

How can I buy DissolveMaster as a gift for someone else?

It's easy -- use our special order form. On the date you specify, they will receive an email from us with their download info and no price shown. You can even enter a custom message that will be included in the email.

Do you have educational pricing?

We offer nice discounts on school site or lab licenses. If you have such a situation, please contact us and mention how many editing stations you may want to purchase for.

Is the DissolveMaster plugin for sale elsewhere?

No. It is currently only available direct from our web site.

What is Pixelan's return policy?

Most plugin companies insist downloadable products may not be returned under any circumstances. After all, there is nothing tangible to 'return'. At Pixelan, your happiness and satisfaction is very important to us and we treat you as a long-term relationship, not as a one-time buyer. Therefore, if you somehow become unhappy with your purchase within 10 days, we will do our best to resolve it to your satisfaction. Your best protection is to be proactive -- to download and try the DissolveMaster DEMO before buying to see if this plugin will meet your creative needs and its hardware-acceleration is compatible with your computer. The demo is easy to install and is identical to the purchased version but shows an X over its output. Installing your purchase will automatically remove the X and uninstall the demo, or you can manually remove the demo anytime via your Windows control panel.

What is Pixelan's privacy policy with my order info?

Please see our privacy policy.

I feel uncomfortable purchasing on the Internet. Can I buy by phone?

Sorry, no. But please be reassured by the following: our customers have ordered online from us for many years and there has never ever been any problem of any type. We have been in business for 20+ years and are one of the longest-established visual effects plugin companies in the world. Our order pages are fully secure using all the latest web technologies. And your payment information (if paying by Paypal) is not even held by us, or (if paying by credit/debit card on our upgrade or special order forms) is held by us for only 30 days then discarded.

Other questions? Please contact us and we will reply promptly.
