RE:Vision Effects RE:Grade

Augment your color correction arsenal. Restore otherwise unusable footage.

RE:Grade™ complements your color correction arsenal by providing unique new ways to manipulate contrast, saturation, and exposure to create super sharp imagery even from video that might be considered unusable. RE:Grade is sure to be a colorist’s new best friend when allowing some video to become color correctable. It also includes look and multi-app color workflow sanity saver tools, including support for 3D LUT inversion.


Highlights

RE:Grade includes a unique Automatic Contrast Enhancement (ACE) tool useful for difficult mixed-lighting or very uneven illumination situations (such as shooting against a window).  

RE:Grade introduces a unique multi-resolution processing method with global contrast, local contrast and per-pixel sharpness in a single tool, providing adjustment at different scales without creating artifacts such as halos, ringing or clamping that other techniques can produce.  Useful for SDR to HDR processing to reveal details in shadows or handle extreme remapping of levels (due to incorrectly exposed areas or unknown log-like curves). 

RE:Grade Overview

  • Automatically pull details out of the shadows, make every pixel sharp without halos, clamping or ringing.
  • Enhance contrast, saturation, exposure.
  • Normalize your footage for final look correction, restore sanity in your color workflow

 

Color LUT handling in RE:Grade

Quick demo of how we support HALD Clut (3D color look-up images), save as 3D file LUT file. You can also use this to restore sanity in your multi-application workflow using color look-up inversion feature.

 

Doesn’t my application do that?

Some video with multiple issues (here shooting with only moonlight before sunset with heavy atmospheric conditions) can be quite complicated to just bring in the ballpark.

 

RE:Grade Features

  • Automatic contrast enhancement – Reveal invisible details out of the shadows, make every pixel sharp without halos, clamping or ringing.
  • Restore otherwise unusable footage – Restore contrast, saturation, pull details out of really low-light or washed out footage, textures that you did not even know was in video.
  • Normalize – Prepare your footage for final look correction, restore sanity in your color workflow.

Feature Specs

  • Semi-Automatic Enhancement – Control the automatic process that adjust locally contrast so every part of the image is clear, color is balanced, saturation makes sense… so it looks like you want not just like the camera or software wants.
  • Look-up tables – Support for Hald Clut. Save as 3D LUT. Build libraries of color looks and use RE:Grade to normalize your footage so your CLUT make sense.
  • Super sharp look – Unique multi-resolution processing method with global contrast, local contrast and per-pixel sharpness in a single tool with controls allowing you to adjust at different scale.
  • Exposure Fusion – Tone mapping controls. Produce HDR-like effects.
  • Adjust/Correct Color – Handy inclusive mini-color corrector with color balance adjustment, support for HALD Clut, CDL controls.
  • Color and Tone limiter – HLS controls to limit color, lightness and saturation separately.
  • SDR to HDR secret ingredient – Reveal fine invisible details out of the dark areas of your image without creating a sea of noise or over-exposing your video. Shoot with 1-2 stop down to avoid clamping safely.
  • Blind handling of Log Curves – Drop flat, log footage of unknown origin and apply RE:Grade Contrast. Adjust the head, middle-point and tail of the non-linear transfer, protect the highlights to avoid clamping (over-saturation).
  • Color Admin – Restore sanity in your multi-application workflow: Inverse 3D LUT using Hald Clut in and out. Generate reference CLUT image, send out, reimport, compute deviation from truth, apply inverse correction.
  • Attenuate color fringes – Get rid of these purple fringes and other optical/sensor over-saturation anomalies.
