RE:Vision Effects releases ReelSmart Motion Blur 5 and Twixtor 6 Sparks with GPU support for Flame, Flare, Smoke, Flame Assist and Burn

RE:Vision Effects, acclaimed effects plug-in industry leader and makers of Academy Award winning software, announces the release of Twixtor® v6 and ReelSmart Motion Blur™ v5 with GPU support for Autodesk ® Flame®, Flare®, Smoke®, Flame® Assist and Burn®.

Twixtor creates highly engaging slow motion shots without the cost of renting a high speed camera. In order to achieve its unparalleled image quality, Twixtor synthesizes unique new frames by warping and interpolating frames of the original sequence by employing RE:Vision’s proprietary tracking technology that calculates motion for each individual pixel.

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 is a feature that allows you to blur with user-supplied motion vectors that, most likely, will come from a 3D animation system.

Both Twixtor and ReelSmart Motion Blur can see substantial acceleration using GPUs. Note that most currently-sold GPUs will provide customers with much needed acceleration, including even many mobile GPUs for laptops. The total speedup end-users will see will vary once application overhead is taken into account, including disk I/O, internal host buffering schemes, bandwidth of PCIe bus, codec used for footage, as well as features used in plug-ins.
