RE:Vision Effects releases ReelSmart Motion Blur version 3, a major upgrade to the popular plugin, for After Effects� compatible applications (Adobe After Effects, discreet Combustion, Adobe Premiere Pro, Boris Red, Apple Final Cut Pro, Pinnacle Systems Commotion). ReelSmart Motion Blur (RSMB) automatically tracks every pixel in a sequence and blurs based on calculated motion.
RSMB comes in regular and Pro versions, and both now support 8 and 16 bits per channel processing and take full advantage of multiprocessor machines.
The Pro version adds support for foreground and background separation using a specified mask. RSMB Pro then uses proprietary filling and tracking techniques when working on the background layer, even when it is obscured by the foreground.
New features in RSMB Pro 3.0:
* Motion blur can be applied using motion vectors from an external source, e.g., motion vectors from your 3D system.
* Automatic scene change intelligence so that motion blur is not applied across a scene cut.
* On problematic footage, give RSMB Pro tracking hints through the use of tracking point settings that in many applications can be tied to the host application’s point tracker.
* In addition you can give RSMB Pro hints by showing exactly where objects move from frame to frame using After Effects? and combustion roto splines.
* Per-pixel image tracking can be turned off and motion blur added based solely on the motion of tracking points and splines.
New features to both regular and Pro versions:
* Cheap Render-Only licenses for render farms.
* Motion sensitivity now varies smoothly rather than jumping in discreet steps.
* ReelSmart Motion Blur is priced at $89.95.
* RSMB Pro is priced at $149.95.
* Upgrades from RSMB version 2 (either regular or Pro version) to the regular version of RSMB version 3 are free. Customers can install the new version by simply using the registration keys they already have.
* Upgrades from the regular version to the Pro version 3 are available for $60.00.
* Render-only licenses (for After Effects 6.0 or later and combustion 3.0 or later) are priced at $17.99 for RSMB and $29.99 for RSMB Pro.
* Contact email@example.com for volume quotes.
Time-limited upgrade offers:
* Through June 1, 2004 upgrades from RSMB Pro 2.0 to RSMB Pro 3.0 are available for $30.00 (simply order the RSMB Pro 2.0 to RSMB Pro 3.0 upgrade from the RE:Vision Effects webstore). After June 1, 2004, the price for upgrading RSMB Pro 2 to RSMB Pro 3 will be $60.00.
