RE:Vision Effects, Inc. introduces new tracking in Twixtor 4.5

Boy, these plug-ins are just getting better and better.

twixtorRE:Vision Effects releases a major update to Twixtor, their popular retiming solution. Twixtor 4.5 is now available for After Effects plugin-compatible applications: After Effects, Final Cut Pro, combustion and Premiere Pro.

Twixtor 4.5 raises the bar in motion estimation.

Nick Brooks, Academy Award and Emmy Award winner for visual effects says, "Twixtor 4.5 represents a new touchstone in retiming. The difference in accuracy means that retiming artifacts are either drastically reduced or disappear on the hardest to retime footage. "

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. This means less tearing and stretching of objects as they cross or go out of the frame. Twixtor now includes a smart blending option 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. With the new features, many pieces of footage that were previously difficult to track become well behaved .

For a comparison of the previous versions of Twixtor and Twixtor 4.5, see the comparison page at the RE:Vision Effects website.
