RE:Match takes intuitive color and texture matching to a whole new level by addressing common problems on multicam and stereo shoots.
RE:Match is a set of plug-ins to match one view of video or film to another so that it looks as if it was shot with the same camera and settings. RE:Match assumes that both image sequences are taken roughly at the same location but perhaps were not shot at the same time or from the same point-of-view.
For multicam shoots, or single camera shoots consisting of multiple shots with different lighting or camera settings, RE:Match matches as best it can one sequence's overall color appearance to match that of another.
For stereo pairs, RE:Match can further refine the overall color match by taking into account that the two views are captured at the same time with a relatively small distance between the views. In addition, RE:Match is also able to propagate color changes into areas that are present in only one view. RE:Match can also make other details, such as reflections, specular highlights, and lens flares be consistent between the two views.
Nick Brooks, Academy Award and Emmy Award winner for visual effects, says RE:Match provides "amazing color matching for stereo pairs... really!!! The specular and optical aberrations matching is high quality and very effective. Like all RE:Vision Effects software, it's nicely parameterized for pro-users, but works out of the box."
Johnathan Banta, stereo pipeline designer, says "The smart guys at RE:Vision Effects have created a very cool toolset that I have been lobbying for for a long time. Brilliant!"
