Friedrichsdorf, Germany – April 1, 2022 – Maxon, the developers of professional software solutions for motion designers, visual effects artists, and editors, today announced the immediate availability of Raptorize, an exciting new toolset for Universe. With Universe Raptorize, artists can easily convert Tom Cruise in any footage into Velociraptor Cruise in seconds. Simply drag and drop Raptorize onto footage and Tom is quickly on his way to the Cretaceous Period.
With Maxon’s proprietary facial performance matching and automatic eyeline detection, no tracking or keyframes are required. Tom Cruise’s head is automatically detected and replaced in seconds. Extensive controls to customize colors, textures, hair, feathers, evolutionary timing and more are included for endless possibilities. Tom Cruise will never not be a velociraptor again.
Planning on applying this effect to other actors or politicians? Think again. Raptorize includes a zero-tolerance policy and the patented Cruise ControlTM engine that intelligently detects if you are trying to apply the effect to anyone other than Tom Cruise. Caution: Illegal use of Raptorize will incur legal action – minimum fines and mandatory sentencing applies.
"This is insane," said director Steven Spielberg, "Wait. Are you telling me I could have cast Tom in Jurassic Park? And all the sequels?!"
"I really, really, really can't believe they've done this," said David McGavran, CEO of Maxon. "I literally asked them to stop working on this months ago. This can’t be legal."
Availability: Raptorize is imaginarily available as part of Universe and Maxon One.
