Lacquer is a plug-in developer for Adobe products like After Effects and Photoshop. They have a great UI and their tools are really easy to use. Pauli contacted me shortly after the Pixel Bender launch at MAX last year asking if they could extend their Conduit compositing and effects tool to Pixel Bender. My response? “Go for it!” The result is better than I could have hoped for. For those who are intimidated by writing Pixel Bender code, this is worth checking out.
