Software developer RE:Vision Effects announces the release of ReelSmart Motion Blur and DE:Noise for Apple's Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5.
Software developer and effects plug-in industry leader RE:Vision Effects announced the release of ReelSmart Motion Blur and DE:Noise for Apple's Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5.
ReelSmart Motion Blur (RSMB) automatically adds more natural-looking motion blur to a sequence. Proprietary tracking technology is at the heart of RSMB, so there is no handwork involved. Of course you can add as little or as much blurring as you need and even remove motion blur! This is a useful tool to give video a more film-like feel, and is also useful to reintroduce motion blur for blue or green screen shoots where a fast shutter is necessary to pull a good key. Also included in the Pro version is a plugin for Motion that allows you to blur with user-supplied motion vectors... which, most likely, will come from a 3D animation system.
DE:Noise handles spurious frame-to-frame defects ranging from fine digital/electronic noise to blotchy spots (e.g. dirt on the film). DE:Noise combines motion estimation techniques with feature-sensitive, edge-preserving spatial filtering methods to reduce the visual impact of various problems such as: noisy video (that can happen with low-light capture), excessive film grain, CG renders affected by ray-tracing sampling artifacts, fingerprints and dust captured during film scan/transfer and printing, snow, drop-outs and many other defects.
