Digital Film Tools
Composite Suite Pro features a well rounded collection of visual effects plug-ins that were previously only available in-house at a Hollywood based feature film effects facility. Tested in the rigors of everyday production, Composite Suite Pro provides all that is needed to combine multiple images by utilizing compositing tricks and techniques, color correction, blur, grain, matte manipulation, lens distortion, lighting effects and edge blending. Eradicate the most common effects problems or employ specialized compositing tools for combining imagery such as fire, smoke and explosions. Cutout or isolate objects using a proprietary matte generator or pick from a variety of color correctors and natural lighting effects to spice up your images.
Power Matte is an easy-to-use interactive image matting tool capable of extracting almost any object in an image — even if you are dealing with fine hair detail, smoke, or reflections. This extraction process creates what is known as a matte — essentially a black-and-white cutout. White matte areas are extracted, black areas not, and gray areas in between represent a level of transparency. Once a matte is extracted, the foreground object can be seamlessly composed onto a new background, and filter and image corrections can be applied only within the area defined by the matte.
Designed with the creative workflow of colorists, film/video editors, graphic designers, and artists in mind, Power Stroke introduces a simple, interactive, stroke-based workflow to quickly and intuitively perform targeted adjustments. Instead of meticulously drawing exact masks, using inaccurate matte extractions, or hand painting frame to frame, regions of interest are isolated by drawing a few simple and loose After Effects open or closed masks. Masks can be assigned multiple corrections and effects such as color correction, recoloring or desaturation, colorization of black-and-white images, blur, fill light for dimly lit image areas, and diffusion/glow.
zMatte is a full-featured keyer that is the result of our experience in creating hundreds of successful blue and green screen composites. Using proprietary matte extraction techniques, zMatte quickly and simply creates mattes with minimal parameters even if you are dealing with fine hair detail, smoke, or reflections. It is easy to use, yet provides the needed tools when faced with good, bad, or ugly shots — tools such as multiple matte creation, automatic spill suppression, sophisticated matte and edge manipulation, and color correction.
A first-of-its-kind plug-in for After Effects, Color Rules is designed to drastically cut down the time required to experiment with color and define the perfect color scheme for your motion graphics projects. Based on the well-established rules behind picking harmonious colors, the plug-in gives you instant access to more than 500 preset Color Swatch Sets — or you can create your own. Color Rules lets you choose and link these color schemes to your layers in After Effects, working with multiple layers and compositions at the same time, so you can instantly and interactively experiment and test any number of possible color looks. The plug-in uses an intuitive interactive Color Wheel for color selection and guides you in choosing your color scheme based on a series of established principles of color theory and color relationships. Color Rules provides creative flexibility while taking the guesswork out of picking colors that will work well together in your projects
Stereoscopic Suite X1 is for stereoscopic parallax modification in post, enabling film editors to tailor 3D depth for optimal effect on any 3D screen, whether cinema, home theater, TV, or mobile device.

FieldsKit provides smarter deinterlacing and more workflow options for interlacing and pulldown. At the heart of FieldsKit is FieldsKit Deinterlacer, which deinterlaces video imagery with superior results. Using proprietary field reconstruction and adaptive motion techniques, FieldsKit Deinterlacer can build full frames from fields that are of much higher quality than the standard approaches available in most effects and video-editing applications. FieldsKit works in After Effects and Adobe Premiere Pro.
Provides per-vertex feather control for After Effects.
RE:Fill mends holes in images by intelligently filling user-specified regions. RE:Fill can replace missing pixels in numerous ways, for example, by selecting the nearest “good” pixel, mirroring pixels around a hole's edge, or cloning from another “good” region. The good region can even come from another point in time or from another sequence altogether. RE:Fill works in After Effects and Adobe Premiere Pro.
RE:Flex brings intuitive morphing and warping to After Effects 5.0 or later. Achieve superior results using proprietary and sophisticated technology. RE:Flex is especially easy to learn because it uses the host program's own drawing and masking tools to direct the warping and morphing, so there's no need to learn a new user interface. RE:Flex, which uses RE:Vision's proprietary tracking software, is the first morphing program to combine hand feature matching with automatic image registration.
ReelSmart Motion Blur
Automatically add natural-looking motion blur to a sequence. RE:Vision's tracking technology is at the heart of ReelSmart Motion Blur, so no handwork is involved. Add as little or as much blur as you need, and even remove motion blur. Create interesting effects by blurring one sequence using the motion from another. ReelSmart MotionBlur is useful for the following:
- Reduce strobing in sequences — particularly useful when frame rates of video change after digitizing. ReelSmart Motion Blur has fewer artifacts than other methods such as frame blending
- Automatically smooth the jerkiness of hand-drawn and scanned animations.
- Motion-blur complex 3D animations when your 3D system takes too much time; in many cases, ReelSmart Motion Blur will be much faster and just as effective.
- Motion-blur one sequence using another sequence's motion for unique effects.
- Sharpen image sequences by removing motion blur.
Give your imagery volume and depth without the hassle of 3D modeling. Generate 3D models from 2D graphical and picture elements using RE:Vision's powerful and proprietary shading-from-shape technology. The models are then lit and rendered in true 3D. Add further details by applying reflection and bump maps. As 2D elements merge and split in a sequence, ReelSmart Shade/Shape automatically merges and splits the geometry in an intuitive fashion. Features include automatic 3D model creation, 3D lighting and rendering, bump mapping, environment mapping, and stable and smooth-over-time shading produced for moving imagery.
SmoothKit provides the ultimate filter set to smooth your imagery by combining user-directed controls and feature-sensitive methods. This set of filters complements the basic blurs provided by host applications. SmoothKit's emphasis is precise control of the filtering process with no compromise on image quality. For example, SmoothKit has a “real” compound blur that exhibits no blocky artifacts. In addition to effects, the SmoothKit toolset can be used to reduce image defects in a much more intelligent manner. SmoothKit works in After Effects and Adobe Premiere Pro.
Twixtor enables you to speed up, slow down, or use frame-rate conversion on image sequences with visually stunning results. To achieve its unparalleled image quality, Twixtor synthesizes unique new frames by warping and interpolating frames of the original. Features include:
- Calculation of motion vectors at each pixel
- Warping and interpolation of frames to “time warp” input footage
- Smart processing of fields in the input and output as appropriate
- Stretching of a sequence using a single scaling parameter
- Keyframable retiming for complete control on a frame-by-frame basis
- Frame-rate conversions made easy (supported only in After Effects)
The Video Gogh plug-in transforms images and video into painted works of art. Video Gogh is different from other paint filters because it can actually track objects in movies for an unparalleled smooth result. Features include three styles of brush strokes, variably sized strokes, variable distance between strokes (so there can be empty space between strokes), and various translucent brushes. All the brush stroke effects can be animated, with the ability to leave masked layers unaffected by special effects.
Automatically color match one view of a clip to another so that it looks as if it was shot with the same camera and settings.
