Press Release

RE:Vision Effects releases Twixtor 5 for Avid Systems.

RE:Vision Effects, acclaimed effects plug-in industry leader and makers of Academy Award winning software, announces the initial release of their Twixtor 5 plug-in for Avid® Media Composer®, Symphony® and NewsCutter®, including 64-bit support for Media Composer 6, Symphony 6 and NewsCutter 10.

Twixtor can create highly engaging slow motion shots without the cost of renting a high speed camera. In order to achieve its unparalleled image quality, Twixtor synthesizes unique new frames by warping and interpolating frames of the original sequence by employing RE:Vision’s proprietary tracking technology that calculates motion for each individual pixel.

“Users of Media Composer, Symphony and NewsCutter have been needing faster results and better integration of Twixtor, and we have worked closely with Avid to give users the rich experience and results they expect from both Twixtor and Avid applications,” says Pete Litwinowicz, President of RE:Vision Effects, Inc.

New Features:
* Twixtor v5 is now an AVX2 plugin.
