Rampant Design (www.rampantdesigntools.com) today announced it is offering hundreds of Rampant 4K style effects for editors, VFX and motion graphics artists free of charge. As part of its new 4K education initiative, simply called 4KFree.com, Rampant’s founders Sean and Stefanie Mullen aim to demonstrate for the community just how easy it is to create visually stunning, highly-styled effects for video in 4K. Through its 4KFree.com initiative, Rampant is also effectively saying ‘thank you’ to its loyal customers, and paying-it-forward with literally hundreds of free 4K Rampant effects.
Rampant Design creates visually stunning style effects for anyone in post production looking to add visual effects design to their video, but who may not have the time, budget or expertise to create their own visual effects. By providing entire libraries of style effects deployed by simply dragging and dropping onto a timeline, Rampant Design is providing a simple and cost effective way to create professional effects at the highest image quality possible - 4K.
“We’re giving away hundreds of 4K style effects absolutely free to show the post production community how powerful our products are, and to demonstrate that making the leap to 4K isn’t difficult or scary,” said Sean Mullen, CEO of Rampant Design. “We also understand that times are tough out there for editors and VFX artists - they have to do more with less. Less time, less budget. By offering these 4K style effects at no charge, we hope to give the smaller design shops the chance to create big budget looks without breaking their bank accounts.”
Stefanie Mullen, co-founder of Rampant Design and professional editor, added, “All of our 4K style effects can be used in any video production; it’s our way of giving back to the community. We are post production artists ourselves and we know first-hand what it’s like to be under the gun, with no time, no budgets, but the expectation that you’re going to create something mind-blowing for the client. With 4KFree.com from Rampant, our customers can now blow away their clients’ expectations by simply dragging and dropping!”
Sean Mullen continues to tap his expertise as a high-end VFX artist, whose work has touched such acclaimed Hollywood and television productions as Charmed, Ally McBeal, NCIS, Felicity, Nip/Tuck, Idle Hands, Lake Placid and Any Given Sunday, to develop ultra-high definition style effects for Rampant’s customers.
