Sapphire Edge Video Effects

Sapphire Edge for Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere Pro

* Sapphire Edge is not supported on Adobe Creative Cloud.

We designed Sapphire Edge visual effects software for our Premiere Pro users who want to edit quickly to meet tight timelines but who don’t want to compromise quality.

Sapphire Edge for Premiere Pro

Intuitive controls and high-quality artistic visual effects make it easy for you as a Premiere Pro user to jump right into editing using the Sapphire Edge plugin without documentation. The Sapphire name means you can count on fast rendering, beautiful images, and the highest level of system reliability. Along with the quality and intuitive controls, Sapphire Edge plugins provide nearly 600 preset visual effects and transitions displayed in a visual browser tailored for busy video editors. It also frees up more time to be creative and delivers superb results that give you a competitive edge.
