Fare thee well, Jim Tierney

Last week’s news that Digital Anarchy sold its video effects software to Red Giant is disappointing. Though I’m sure Red Giant will be a good home for some of my favorite After Effects plug-ins, I’ll sorely miss Jim Tierney and Debbie Rich in the video community.

Jim was always a good interview back in my DV Magazine days. He wasn’t a walking press release at trade shows. He’d speak candidly and on the record about the industry, his competition, and how Digital Anarchy stacked up.

Digital Anarchy will continue supporting and developing its Photoshop plug-ins and digital photography tools.

Good luck Jim and Debbie. You’ll be missed. Thanks for all the great stories and great advice when I was launching Xprove.

From the press release:

This asset sale will allow Digital Anarchy to focus on their other core market, Photoshop plug-ins for photographers and digital artists. Since 2004, the company has released tools that help professional and hobbyist photographers to uniquely create a fully digital portrait studio. The company has recently focused on software that provides custom graphic effects, and plans to release new innovative products by the beginning of Q4 2008. Digital Anarchy is also considering development for related host applications like Adobe Lightroom and Apple Aperture.
