Professional keying

Green screen

Clean up your green screen footage with Ignite Pro’s effortless broadcast-quality chroma key. Use the technology to get high-quality removal from blue or green screen, control over edge detail, color correction and advanced spill replacement.

Spill simulation

Ignite Pro’s unique spill simulation plugin replaces unwanted light reflections from your green screen with simulated light from your new background. You can even add the light wrap effect for a more realistic light bloom around your foreground elements.

Stock footage

Turn a dreary London sky into a California dream by extracting black or white background with Ignite Pro’s range of plugins including luminosity keying and demultiply. Perfect for stock footage, these enhance vibrant colors and darken edges for more texture in your scenes.

Matte cleaning

Sometimes keying only gets you halfway to perfection. Ignite Pro’s matte cleaner plugin helps you clean up the rest of your composite through smoothing, feathering and choking the edge of the key.

Atomic particles

Enter ‘the grid’ with Ignite Pro’s atomic particle systems. Images and 3D model surfaces easily morph into point grids that respond to animation or sound. Use atomic particles to create Tron-style holographics, fractal distortions, dramatic dissolves or animations synced to your favorite track.


Create earth-shattering scenes with Ignite Pro’s video-shattering plugin. You can break up videos and images into bricks, shards or any custom shape.

Pro effects in your own NLE

Unleash your creativity with over 500 advanced visual effects and presets.

3D muzzle flashes

Perfect for any action scene – Ignite Pro’s dedicated 3D muzzle flash engine incorporates a huge library of customizable effects. Drag and drop realistic, infinitely variable muzzle flashes onto any weapon in your prop collection from any angle, and at any size.

Procedural fire

Re-make your own Towering Inferno with Ignite Pro’s procedural fire effects. You can augment your stock footage with everything from small bonfires to large-scale building fires. Perfect for turning up the heat and production value.

Distortion effects

Ignite Pro’s distortion effects come in four flavors: Heat, Energy, Smoke & Fluid Distortion. Add industrial grit to your props and environments with jet exhausts, burning fires and hot proton beams, or create your own Narcissus reflection scene with fluid caustics - perfect for creating the appearance of looking through a liquid surface within the software.

Neon path

Create stunning neon sign graphics straight out of a dystopian metropolis or middle-of-nowhere motel. Just add the neon effect to text and shape layers to create life-like neon sign graphics that interact with surrounding elements.

Bonus: Neon Path significantly reduces time spent rotoscoping lightswords and laserbeams. After positioning your lightsword using the 4-Point Auto effect, enhance it with flicker, foreground & background distortion for an irregular edge, glow and path animation.

Easy sci-fi effects

High-quality visual effects are the building blocks of modern sci-fi classics. So we’ve created a showstopping repository of classic sci-fi tropes - from starfields and lasers, to FTL-jumps, text crawls, earthquakes and even lightswords. Drag, drop and dazzle.

Lightning & electricity

Take up the mantle of Nikola Tesla with your very own lightning generator. Use it for Harry Potter wand effects, exploding starship systems or have your actors throw electric bolts with customizable branches, color and motion.

Lens flare toolkit

Get the J.J. Abrams look without having to adjust F-stops or shine a maglite into your camera. Volumetric, anamorphic and automatic lens flares are all easy to use with automatic identification and application of flares to bright spots in your layers. Ignite Pro even simulates imperfect lens flaring from specular highlights, camera dirt and anamorphic streaks.

Warping tools

Twist and distort your footage for that added cool factor using Ignite Pro’s vortex displacement, bezier warps, perspective and polar warps. You can flatten your action footage to match your traditional lenses or use Action Cam Lens Distort; making it easy to layer your composites directly onto footage filmed with action cameras.

Temporal tools

Tell more stories in a New York minute with a temporal palette that lets you speed up, slow down or reverse the action. Bring your scenes to life by having characters dodge bullets with motion blur, or bend time with echoes, motion trails and temporal displacement.

Hide objects

Don’t let rogue pedestrians come between you and your perfect shot. Clean up your footage by easily hiding or duplicating objects with Ignite Pro’s clone stamp and replacement tools.

Colorist’s toolkit

Turn your editor into a Colorist’s dream-come-true with Ignite Pro’s grading and color correction plugins. Modify and analyze your frames with Color cycle, Color map, and Color phase. Tinker with features like Duo Tone & Tint, Hue Colorize & Hue Shift, Shadows & Highlights, Color Vibrance, Vignette & Vignette Exposure to get the perfect shot.
