RE:Vision Effects, acclaimed effects plug-in industry leader and makers of Academy Award winning software, announces DE:Flicker™ for Apple® Final Cut Pro® and Motion, and adds GPU support to the already-released version of DE:Flicker for Adobe® After Effects®.
DE:Flicker is designed to smooth out those annoying flicker and artifacts when shooting high frame rate or timelapse video. DE:Flicker is unique because it not only fixes flicker from artificial light sources but also fixes flicker on multiple objects, even when those objects flicker at different rates. DE:Flicker also minimizes problems when shooting directly at light sources, causing them to “breathe” and change size when shot at higher frame rates.
DE:Flicker will also help transform your timelapse photography so that viewers watch the footage you intended them to watch and not the annoying pops that often accompany timelapse photography. DE:Flicker handles the common problems of color shifts, exposure and other camera setting and lighting inconsistencies that may occur from frame to frame. DE:Flicker also tames the problems of clouds casting shadows at different places between frames, and performs well when objects appear or disappear from frame to frame.
Whether you are shooting in an arena, a stadium, a park at night, a nightclub or in a home, man-made light sources can cause havoc, especially now that cameras and smart phones are being made with the ability to shoot at higher and higher frame rates. And of course this functionality is rapidly becoming the favorite of sports enthusiasts everywhere. Dealing with strobing and light source flicker has been very time consuming until now. Without DE:Flicker, fixing the problems usually involves creating mattes followed by hand-adjusting the elements. Fixing a short scene using frame-by-frame color correction and zone corrections could take hours, when it is even possible. RE:Vision Effects DE:Flicker handles these problems automatically while retaining image detail.
DE:Flicker is a set of three plug-ins: one specially designed for problems within high frame rate footage; one specially designed for timelapse photography; and a third one that analyzes and then stabilizes the color and luminance levels of your footage and can be used before more specific processing with one of the other two plug-ins. As with all RE:Vision Effects plug-ins, DE:Flicker automatically works right out of the gate, but also provides intuitive controls to further refine the results.
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.
So whether you are using a specialized high-speed camera, a DSLR, a compact action cam or even a phone: DE:Flicker to the rescue! See DE:Flicker in action! www.revisionfx.com/products/deflicker/
