Photo-reactor is a powerful tool to build effects that are difficult to make in most normal editors.
You can use from more than 100 supplied factory modules:
image segmentations, paint effects, diffusion, anisotropic morphing, Light Studio, Film simulations with HALD CLUT and more, then chain them all together with buttons and knobs and create new work-flows.
As you work on your image, you don't just edit that single photo. You are automatically creating the editing "flow" that can be easily applied to any other images with just a single click.
One of the many great features is the process of encapsulation. If you create an effect that you like, you can just simply wrap it to a brand new effect. Then use it later as a single object or reuse it in other Mediachance software.
You don’t have to remember the steps of what you did, if you discover some cool effect.
With nodal editing, the whole “recipe” is right there in front of you all the time.
One of the modules in Photo- Reactor is called Reactor Script.
It is like having a whole new software inside.
With Reactor Script you can write your own modules in a high level C++ that is fast and has easy direct classes to access image pixels.
Of course this is fully optional so if you are not up to the task of writing code, don’t worry.
