RE:Vision Effects, Inc. Releases Twixtor 4.5 and ReelSmart Motion Blur 3.0 for Avid Systems
Posted Sep 30, 2005

RE:Vision Effects has announces major upgrades of their Avid compatible versions of Twixtor, their retiming solution and ReelSmart Motion Blur, which adds and removes motion blur based on per-pixel calculated motion.

Twixtor 4.5 introduces a complete rewrite of its tracking. Twixtor is much more accurate, tracks objects farther, and exhibits fewer artifacts when there are objects crossing in the scene, according to RE: Vision Effects. This means less tearing and stretching of objects as they cross or go out of the frame. Twixtor now includes a smart blending method for pans and zooms to prevent inappropriate streaking or weird artifacts at frame borders. Twixtor also adds an option to automatically enhance dark imagery or imagery with poorly defined edges. For a comparison of the previous versions of Twixtor and Twixtor 4.5, visit RE: Vision Effects' comparison page.

Twixtor AVX 1.5 plugin priced at $329.99, while ReelSmart Motion Blur AVX 1.5 plugin has an MSRP of $134.95. Upgrades from previous versions are free. AVX 1.5 support required.
