San Francisco — Re:Vision Effects is now offering De:Flicker for Adobe After Effects, which is designed to smooth out those annoying flicker and artifacts when shooting high frame rate or timelapse video.
De:Flicker (www.revisionfx.com/products/deflicker) not only fixes flicker from artificial light sources but also fixes flicker on multiple objects, even when those objects flicker at different rates.
De:Flicker also minimizes problems when shooting directly at light sources, causing them to “breathe” and change size when shot at higher frame rates. De:Flicker will also help transform your timelapse photography so that viewers watch the footage you intended them to watch and not the pops that often accompany timelapse photography.
De:Flicker handles the common problems of color shifts, exposure and other camera setting and lighting inconsistencies that may occur from frame to frame. De:Flicker also tames the problems of clouds casting shadows at different places between frames, and performs well when objects appear or disappear from frame to frame.
Man-made light sources can cause havoc, especially now that cameras and smart phones are being made with the ability to shoot at higher and higher frame rates. Dealing with strobing and light source flicker has been very time consuming until now. Without De:Flicker, fixing the problems usually involves creating mattes followed by hand-adjusting the elements. Fixing a short scene using frame-by-frame color correction and zone corrections could take hours, when it is even possible. De:Flicker handles these problems automatically while retaining image detail.
De:Flicker is a set of three plug-ins: one specially designed for problems within high frame rate footage; one specially designed for timelapse photography; and a third one that analyzes and then stabilizes the color and luminance levels of your footage and can be used before more specific processing with one of the other two plug-ins.
De:Flicker works on any system running After Effects CS5, CS5.5 CS6 and CC, including versions activated by Adobe Cloud. De:Flicker for Adobe After Effects costs $249.95 – but the company is offering a special introductory price, $199.95, through January 31, 2014.
