RE:Vision Effects has announced Mac OS X support of their products ReelSmart Motion Blur and ReelSmart Twixtor for Shake, from Apple Computer, Inc. The plugins add functionality to Shake, a compositing and effects solution for film and HD. According to RE:Vision Effects:
ReelSmart Twixtor enables users to speed up or slow down image sequences with visually stunning results. In order to achieve its unparalleled image quality, Twixtor synthesizes unique new frames by warping and interpolating frames of the original sequence... employing the RE:Visionis proprietary tracking technology that calculates motion for each individual pixel.
ReelSmart Motion Blur applies more natural-looking motion blur to a video sequence by automatically tracking every pixel and applying blur in the amount and direction of the caclulated movement. RE:Visionis tracking technology is at the heart of ReelSmart Motion Blur, so there is no handwork involved.
You can find more information about the ReelSmart Motion Blur and ReelSmart Twixtor release at the RE:Vision Effects Web site. ReelSmart Motion Blur for Shake is priced at $134.95 and ReelSmart Twixtor for Shake is priced at $495.00.
