RE:Vision Updates After Effects Plugins

Motion Blur Pro 2 supports separate foreground and background blurs By Dave Nagel
RE:Vision Effects has released updates for three of its plugins for Adobe After Effects. These include ReelSmart Motion Blur, Video Gogh and ReelSmart Shade/Shape. All of the updates are available free to current customers.

ReelSmart Motion Blur 2.0 adds control over how far pixels are tracked. According to the company, this can reduce the amount of incorrect blurring that can occur when objects in a scene pass over one another. The Pro version also now supports foreground and background separation using a mask. With this feature, the two layers are tracked, interpolated and blurred separately. According to the company, the filter uses a proprietary algorithm to track the background even when it's obscured by the foreground.

Video Gogh receives a minor update to 2.6 According to RE:Vision, the update reduces "popping" in painted animations when animating brush strokes.

FInally, ReelSmart Shade/Shape has been updated to 1.2.1. The new version fixes a bug that had caused the Macintosh version to render black frames in Adobe Premiere 6. Shade/Shape is a plugin that's designed to convert 2D elements into 3D-rendered objects.

All of the updates are free for registered users. For new users, they're priced at $89.95. The Pro version of ReelSmart Motion Blur runs $134.95, with an upgrade from the standard edition running $45. For more information, visit
