[6:00 AM] Enhance Your QuickTime Movies With Video Genetics
Q Research, makers of the image enhancement utility Photo Genetics, has announced that they are going to release another editing product, Video Genetics. Video Genetics will allow QuickTime users to enhance the color and clarity of their quicktime movies. According to Q Research:
The software is based on the powerful technology of genetic image optimization, but is simple enough to be used by the average consumer in addition to digital video enthusiasts and professionals.
Through VideoGenetics' simple interface, users access the powerful, patent-pending technology of genetic image optimization. The intuitive program makes complex imaging adjustments without requiring any technical knowledge on the user's part. Users simply tell the program what looks best to them, and VideoGenetics converts the images to reflect their preferences.
Upon opening a video display in the program and starting the optimization process, a user will view two displays side by side: a sample of the original video on the left, and a first variation on the right generated by VideoGenetics. The software continues to display a series of variations, manipulating a dozen characteristics such as hue, gradient, color balance, contrast, gamma, color temperature, color shift and saturation. With a click of the mouse, a user rates how much better or worse each variation is compared to the original. The software automatically applies the desired enhancements to the video. The user may enhance the entire video while it is playing or select separate segments to enhance as needed.
Video Genetics is expected to ship the first week of February, and will be available for US$249. You can find more information at the Q Research web site.
