Rift apart your photos for dramatic visuals in hundreds of filters in thousands of combinations. Dissolve motion turns an album of photos into a mesmerizing show.

Rift a photo. It makes new visual relationships. Visuals that we respond to. Visuals that triggger the experience of beauty.
Rift-Effex has hundreds of filters to combine, adjust, and reveal the beauty of seeing.

With Rift-Effex you can build combinations of filters in any number of filter stacks. Transition filters and automated parameter change will turn your stack of filter effects into a fascinating moving display.

The tool is available as a single one time purchase with all features fully enabled. There are NO add-in app purchases.

Rifting can get pretty & wild..imagine using the filters 'Saliency Blur' into the 'Blend with Red Mask' that is shifted with the 'Perspective Tile' into the 'Addition' filter as a filter stack.
Then change the source input and blend background with two transition dissolves using an entire album of images. Then set the entire stack as the input to the background of another stack.

A stack of filters can be created with a few quick picks. The filter stacks can be saved and used again across your iPad & iPhone devices with a space efficient iCloud data scheme in your personal iCloud account. Export to the Photos app in either HEIF or JPEG formats. Your original source images are never changed or altered.

A simple tool interface is based on a split screen of filters and filter parms alongside the output image showing the immediate result. Move sliders or drag points on the output image while you view the result. The main view shows output of a single filter or All the filters as you make adjustments to filter parms. The main view goes full screen with a touch and a swipe.

Editing the stack of filters is accomplished in the standard list Edit mode with delete or order change by drag up/down in the list. Experiment to see if 'Crystallize' should be before or after 'Photo Effect Chrome'.

Most parms can be set to variable rates of change with the 'Vary' swipe command for effect animation. Transition filters such as 'Dissolve' move images into an everchanging show. The animation can be captured as a movie by the system screen recording feature.

Rift-Effex is an artistic tool. Developers will also find it to be a quick prototyping tool for filter effects in their own apps.

What’s New

Version 2.2

New filters include the Convolution family of 3x3, 5x5, 7x7, 9x9 and RGB variants. SequencedFilters displays independent filter stacks with the same input. The Rift morphing with the Sequenced dFilters is really cool! Color filters feature improved controls for Tone Curve, Color Polynomial, Color Matrix. Affine filters are now supported for rotation, scaling and coordinate transforms. Dissolve sizing is smoothed for different format images. Several older filters have been removed such as 'WarpItMetal'

Internal database changes reduce the space used locally and on iCloud. Metal code for drawing is improved and more efficient. CPU utilization is reduced for static image stacks.
