RE:Vision Effects updates Twixtor and ReelSmart Motion Blur

Adds High Dynamic Range image support and a major performance upgrade for Adobe After Effects 7.0 (January 17, 2006)

RE:Vision Effects releases updates to the After Effects-compatible versions of Twixtor, their popular retiming solution, and ReelSmart Motion Blur, which adds and removes motion blur based on per-pixel calculated motion. The versions updated are compatible with After Effects, combustion, Final Cut Pro and Premiere Pro.

Twixtor and ReelSmart Motion Blur adds High Dynamic Range (floating point) image support when running within After Effects 7.0, Professional edition.

Users of Twixtor and ReelSmart Motion Blur will see a significant speed boost within After Effects 7.0 on Macintosh G5 CPUs running Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger). Computation times have been reduced by approximately 25 to 35% on such machines (however, each project is different and speedup percentages will vary). This speed increase has been made possible because:


* After Effects 7.0 now supports Mach-O format plugins.
* The plugins have been made with the XCode development system from Apple, using the GCC version 4 compiler, that makes much more efficient code for G5 CPUs.
* Mac OS 10.4 enables easy switching between G4- and G5-specific without After Effects having to know or do anything special upon loading the plugins.

ReelSmart Motion Blur 3.2 now includes the much more precise tracking that was introduced in Twixtor 4.5. This new feature has been added for all host applications, including After Effects, combustion, Final Cut Pro, and Premiere Pro.

All of the RE:Vision Effects products for After Effects have been verified to work with After Effects 7.0. This includes Twixtor, ReelSmart Motion Blur, FieldsKit, SmoothKit, Shade/Shape, RE:Fill, RE:Flex and Video Gogh.
