Red Giant Software unveils new film restoration tool

Red Giant Software, publisher of a line of professional desktop tools, including Magic Bullet and Knoll Light Factory, has announced the availability of Film Fix.
This new cutting-edge technology consists of a set of plug-ins designed for documentary filmmakers and postproduction studios that need film and video restoration tools on the desktop. Using Film Fix, After Effects users can restore tears, remove dust and dirt particles, and stabilise footage originated on film and video resolution material transferred from film.
The processing is nearly automatic, provides high-quality output, and rivals dedicated high-end systems.
"Before Film Fix, film restoration was prohibitively expensive. Film Fix is the new Holy Grail-its desktop capabilities seriously change the market. With an archive of more than 14,000 old educational and industrial films, for us it is indispensable," said Skip Elsheimer of AV Geeks Film Archive.
Film Fix utilises a fast, accurate motion estimation system, which processes pixel-accurate image data at different scales similar to the way the human eye views the world. These powerful, intelligent algorithms allow it to identify problems such as dust, dirt, and tearing despite complex motion in the footage. Once identified, these artefacts are quickly and naturally removed.
