Twixtor intelligently slows down, speeds up or changes the frame rate of your image sequences.

Twixtor raises the bar in motion estimation. Twixtor is much more accurate, tracks objects farther, and exhibits fewer artifacts when there are objects crossing in the scene. This means less tearing and stretching of objects as they cross or go out of the frame.


Highlights

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. 


After Effects 13.5.1 (CC 2015.0.1) now available, fixes bugs Adobe has released After Effects 13.5.1 (CC 2015.0.1) which corrects a bug which prevented the use of any two of our plug-ins on the same layer.

Important note: The AE CC 2015 installer removes AE CS6, CC and CC 2014 by default. We recommend keeping your older versions by unchecking the box for the "Remove Old Versions" option. This option is an advanced option that is not expanded (twirled open) by default. For further details, please see this article on the After Effects' team blog here.

If you are using Twixtor v6, RSMB v5, RE:Flex v5 or RE:Match v1 you must have the most recent version of the plug-in installed as follows:

  • Twixtor 6.2.1
  • RSMB 5.1.1
  • RE:Flex 5.2.1
  • RE:Match 1.4

Note: Using RE:Flex v4 in CC 2014.2 or any version of CC 2015:

With the release of CC 2014.2, Adobe unfortunately broke compatibility with RE:Flex v4.


Updates

Version 6.2 | May 15, 2015

  • 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.

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 (Twixtor Pro for After Effects Compatible) (sold separately)

  • 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.

Hosts

  • After Effects CS5 or later. (Including 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 or later. (Including 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.
