Digital Heaven releases DH_Reincarnation 2.0 plug-in for Final Cut

in Multimedia (E)

[] London, UK - Digital Heaven, one of the leading third party developers for Apple Pro Apps, today is pleased to announce the release of DH_Reincarnation 2.0, a major upgrade to the plug-in for Final Cut Express and Final Cut Pro that brings dead pixels back to life.

Dead pixels have long been a issue on traditional video cameras, but with the recent innovation of shooting HD video on DSLRs the problem is becoming more widespread. Manually fixing damaged and often irreplaceable footage can be a time consuming and sometimes near impossible task.

Enter DH_Reincarnation 2.0 that enables up to two dead pixel areas to be intelligently replaced with a single application of the plug-in. The width and height of each area can be independently set and a preview mode ensures only the dead pixels are affected.

This new release offers the ability to choose Horizontal, Vertical or Horizontal & Vertical interpolation modes when restoring dead pixels. Previously only Horizontal interpolation was used and this could produce issues with camera pans or vertical edges on objects moving through the frame. With DH_Reincarnation 2.0, the interpolation can be changed depending on the shot and there is even a mix control to blend between Horizontal and Vertical modes. In addition the area range has been increased to a maximum of 16 pixels making it possible to deal with large dead pixel areas on HD footage.

System Requirements:
* Final Cut Express (v2 and later) or Final Cut Pro (v4 and later)

Pricing and availability:
DH_Reincarnation 2.0 is available for immediate purchase from the Digital Heaven online store for $59.00 (USD). A watermarked trial version can be downloaded from the Digital Heaven website. Customers who purchased DH_Reincarnation on or after 1st November 2010 are eligible for a free upgrade. A trial version of DH_Reincarnation 2.0 is available so results can now be tested on footage before purchasing.
