Twixtor is the essential tool for slowing down, and speeding up, or modifying the frame rate of video footage.

Twixtor takes advantage of proprietary tracking technology to accurately accelerate, decelerate or alter the frame rate of your video or image sequence. Work with precision while effectively tracking elements farther, and with less stretching and tearing when objects are crossing your subject or leaves the frame.


Twixtor enables you to speed up, slow down or frame rate convert* your image sequences with visually stunning results. In order to achieve its unparalleled image quality, Twixtor synthesizes unique new frames by warping and interpolating frames of the original sequence... employing RE:Vision's proprietary tracking technology that calculates motion for each individual pixel.

*Frame rate conversion fully supported with After Effects and combustion only. Frame rate conversions can often be accomplished in other applications by writing out image sequences and reading them back in with a different frame rate setting. 

Twixtor Features

  • Warping and interpolation of frames to "time warp" input footage.
  • Smart processing of interlaced material
  • Stretching of a sequence using a single scaling parameter.
  • Keyframable retiming for complete control on a frame by frame basis.
  • Frame rate conversions made easy (Important Note: frame rate conversions are supported only from within After Effects and Combustion ).
  • 8 and 16 bits per channel processing. Unclamped floating point image support in After Effects 7.0 or later
  • Option to automatically enhance dark imagery or imagery with poorly defined edges. In many cases, footage that was difficult to track becomes much more well-behaved upon retiming.
  • Contains an option to add or remove motion motion blur, as appropriate.
  • Support for marking material so that Twixtor does not motion-interpolate across a cut.
  • After Effects only: ability to remap audio and video using AE's time remapping tools but using Twixtor "under the hood"

Twixtor Pro Features

  • Object separation.
  • Support for foreground and background separation using a specified matte. Twixtor then tracks each layer separately for improved results. This feature uses proprietary filling and tracking techniques when working on the background layer even when it is obscured by the foreground! Support for up to 3 foreground layers.
  • Track Point Guidance. Up to 12 user-defined points can be specified to help guide Twixtor's motion estimation. By using the tracking points you can explicitly tell Twixtor where a pixel moves from one frame to the next in order to guide Twixtor's calculation of motion vectors. You can set the position of each point at each frame by hand, but more importantly, In After Effects and combustion these points can be positioned from frame-to-frame using the host application's point-tracking features.
  • Spline Guidance. When Twixtor exhibits tracking problems, you can guide Twixtor by simply creating and animating shapes to show Twixtor where objects are actually moving. Interactive feature registration is directed through the host program's drawing and roto tools (splines and polylines), not through a grid of mesh points! As such, there is no new interface to learn! This feature only available within After Effects 5.0 (and later) and combustion 3.0 (and later).
  • Motion Vector Import. Give Twixtor motion vectors generated elsewhere (like from a 3D system) to time remap footage, including adding motion-interpolated fields to otherwise progressive material. Only supported in apps that work in 16bpc or higher.
  • Motion Vectors Export. You can now output the motion vectors that Twixtor generates internally. This powerful feature comes with visual debugging modes to more intuitively assess and tune the quality of the motion estimation. The motion vectors can then be used elsewhere in the pipeline (including the Twixtor plugin that imports motion vectors). Only supported in apps that work in 16bpc or higher.




What's New in Version 6.2?

  • Version needed to run in AE CC 2015 if you use splines to help guide Twixtor Pro.
  • Fixes some bugs in Twixtor Pro and Motion Vectors Create within After Effects CC 2014 where the render cache was not properly re-rendered when masks were modified that the plug-in was using.
  • Adds support for RVL_NOGUI_LIC and RVL_QUIT_LIC_FAIL environment variables during render-only use in After Effects.

Version 6.1.0 | June 13, 2014

  • Fixes a bug with Motion Weighted Blend
  • Fixes a bug with Twixtor, Vectors In when only one of Prev Motion Vectors or Next Motion Vectors was supplied.
  • From recent releases:
    • 6.0.9 Fixes a bug where negative alpha could be erroneously created when slowing down footage and using motion blur compensation (bug was in GPU mode only).
    • 6.0.9 Adds GPU support for Twixtor, Vectors In and Motion Vector Create.
    • 6.0.9 Fixes a bug where GPU mode did not work properly in demo mode on some GPUs.
    • 6.0.9 Fixes a bug where incorrect vectors were produced when Image Track was not on.
    • 6.0.8 Fixes a bug where negative alpha could be erroneously created when slowing down footage and using motion blur compensation (bug was in GPU mode only).
    • 6.0.8 Adds GPU support for Twixtor, Vectors In and Motion Vector Create.


  • After Effects CS5, CS6, CC 2014, CC 2015, CC 2017
    • Note if using AE CC 2015, that you will need to use 2015.0.1 (13.5.1) or later.
  • Premiere Pro CS5, CS6, CC 2014, CC 2015, CC 2017

GPU Information

  • CS6 or later needed for GPU support.
  • Customers must have a GPU that is supported by Premiere Pro.
  • Premiere Pro does not need to support the GPU in OpenCL mode, but it must support the GPU in either of the CUDA or OpenCL modes.
  • GPU with 1G memory officially supported. GPUs with 500m can work for Twixtor, but are not officially supported.
  • Driver for GPU must support OpenCL 1.1. Note that Mac OS 10.7 and up automatically provides this compatibility.
  • On Windows, check with your manufacturer for updated drivers for your GPU, and make sure you have one that supports OpenCL 1.1. We recommend the latest drivers available.

OS Support

  • Windows 7 or 8, 64-bit for GPU support. Vista is still supported for CPU mode.
  • Mac OS 10.7 or 10.8. Mac OS 10.6 still supported for CPU mode. It is highly recommended that when on Macintosh to use Mac OS 10.8 for the GPU mode of Twixtor because the OpenCL drivers are more robust and run up to 30% faster than those of Mac OS 10.7.

It is awesome! It's the main reason I was attracted to RE:Vision I bought a bunch of 'em. Still exploring the use of splines for cleaner slomo's.

Twixtor is a must have if you want your speed ramps to look REALLY good

There are many plugins out in the market that can do speed ramps and simulate high speed. Twixtor gives the best results so far. Just give it a go and compare the results with those of the other plugins and you will know what I mean smile

If you ask any pro editor, they will tell you that this plug-in is absolutely essential to your system

Twixtor is revolutionary, and can easily take mediocre scenes and add the kind of dynamics that change something from a backyard brawl into a Jackie Chan flick. It's an amazing tool for music videos, action scenes, commercials, and any other time you need to re-time your footage.
