RE:Vision Effects releases DE:Noise for OFX

RE:Vision Effects ( has
released its DE:Noise plug-in set for Nuke,
Fusion and Toxik. DE:Noise is a plug-in set that
removes excessive noise and artifacts in one
tool. It’s compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 and up,
Windows 32 and 64 bit (XP or Vista) and Linux 32
and 64 bit.

It handles spurious frame-to-frame defects
ranging from fine digital and electronic noise to
blotchy spots (e.g., dirt on the film). DE:Noise
combines proprietary motion estimation (optical
flow) techniques with feature-sensitive,
edge-preserving spatial filtering methods to
reduce the visual impact of various problems such
as: noisy video (that can happen with low-light
capture), excessive film grain, prefiltering
noisy greenscreens before keying, CG renders
affected by ray-tracing sampling artifacts, dust
captured during film scan/transfer and printing,
snow, drop-outs and many other defects.

Features of DE:Noise include:

° Pre-processing contrast controls to help enhance the noise for elimination;

° Smart spatial filtering controls that allow for
the spatial smoothing of noise without smoothing
over important features in the image sequence;

° Eight different temporal filtering methods that
uses motion estimation (via optical flow) to
correlate images over time in order to reduce
noise and other artifacts;

° Post-processing to help punch up the result or
to undo the preprocessing contrast enhancement;

° Post sharpening option for when the denoising
process makes the result softer than desired;

° Unclamped floating point support in applications that support it;

° A way to mark segments to avoid problems with
flashes and other discontinuities.

DE:Noise has been tested in The Foundry Nuke 5.1
and up, eyeon Fusion 5.2 and up, and Autodesk
Toxik 2008 and up. Other hosts that support OFX
plugins may work, but you should try out the demo
before purchasing.

Full version node-locked licenses are priced at
US$189.95. Floating licenses are $284.93.
Render-only node-locked licenses are priced at
$44.95, and render-only floating licenses are
priced at $67.43. DE:Noise OFX is now included in
Effections for Fusion, version 9.
