Burning Question: What’s the difference between RE:Vision Effects Pro & Regular plugins?

Burning Question What’s the difference between RE:Vision Effects Pro & Regular?

RE:Vision Effects Twixtor, ReelSmart Motion Blur, and RE:Match offer Regular and Pro versions of the software, so how do you know which version you need? There are two main areas: Host support and features. Let us break it down.

More Host Support in RE:Vision Effects Pro Version

The Pro Versions mainly add OFX support for products like Baselight, Silhouette, and Scratch, but one also adds Avid support, so make sure you understand the system requirements for each version.

More Features in Pro Versions

While the regular version is robust and may work great for the majority of your projects, the Pro version does add a few features.

ReelSmart Motion Blur

The Pro version also includes: RSMB Pro Vectors is a separate effect included with RSMB Pro. It gives users the ability to blur with motion vectors supplied by you… which, most likely, will come from your 3D animation system.. This is an older video but it compares it a bit.

ReelSmart Motion Blur Pro has all of the features of the ReelSmart Motion Blur Regular version but also includes these features:

  • Object Separation – Support for foreground and background separation using a specified matte. ReelSmart Motion Blur then uses proprietary filling and tracking techniques when working on the background layer, even when it is obscured by the foreground! (Not available with Catalyst Edit, DaVinci Resolve, Flame, Smoke, Media Composer, Movie Studio, Nucoda, Vegas Pro)
  • 3D Motion Vector Input – Ability to blur with motion vectors supplied by you… which, most likely, will come from your 3D animation system.  (Not available with Catalyst Edit, DaVinci Resolve, Media Composer, Movie Studio, Nucoda, Vegas Pro)
  • RGB+A Tracking – An option that uses the alpha channel to help to track of dark images with mattes. This is especially useful for CG, masked and/or keyed material. (Not available with Media Composer)
  • Track Point Guidance – Up to 12 user-defined points can be specified to help guide RSMB’s motion estimation. By using the tracking points you can explicitly tell RSMB where a pixel moves from one frame to the next in order to guide RSMB’s calculation of motion vectors.  (Not available with Catalyst Edit, DaVinci Resolve, Flame, Smoke, Media Composer, Movie Studio, Nucoda, Vegas Pro)
  • Spline Guidance – When RSMB exhibits tracking problems, you can guide RSMB by simply creating and animating shapes to show where objects are actually moving.  (Not available with Catalyst Edit, DaVinci Resolve, FCPX, Flame, Smoke, Hitfilm, Media Composer, Motion, Movie Studio, Nucoda, Nuke, Premiere Pro, Scratch, Sihouette, Vegas Pro)

RE:Match Pro

RE:Match Pro has all of the features of the RE:Match regular version and then adds the following features:

  • Auto image registration – Matching for stereo pairs takes advantage of internal per-pixel registration using optical flow methods.
  • Occlusions – Stereo pair matching takes into account occlusions between the two views.
  • Frame edge differences – Stereo pair matching takes into account that the two images may not have corresponding details at some of the edges of the frame. (Not available with Scratch)
  • Refine within matte – Stereo matching has controls for making details, such as reflections, lens flares and specular highlights match between the two views. Methods provided to remove or attenuate on-lens artifacts (such as water drops on a lens).
  • No stereo alignment required – You can use at any point of your pipeline. Because RE:Match uses internal pixel registration, stereo matching does not require image alignment prior to use. Visualization modes are provided to guide what RE: Match is doing internally.

Twixtor Pro

Twixtor Pro has all of the features of the Twixtor regular version, plus adds these features:

  • Object Separation – Support for foreground and background separation using a specified matte. Twixtor then tracks each layer separately for improved results. (Not available for Catalyst Edit, Hitfilm, Movie Studio, Natron, Nucoda, Vegas Pro)
  • RGB+A Tracking – An option that uses the alpha channel to help to track of dark images with mattes. This is especially useful for CG, masked and/or keyed material. (Not available for Smoke, Flame)
  • 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. (Not available for Catalyst Edit, Hitfilm, Movie Studio, Natron, Nucoda, Vegas Pro
  • 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 by using the host program’s splines. (Not available with Catalyst Edit, Hitfilm, Movie Studio, Natron, Nucoda, Vegas Pro, FCPX, Nuke, Premiere Pro, Scratch)
  • 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. (Not available with Catalyst Edit, Hitfilm, Movie Studio, Natron, Nucoda, Vegas Pro, FCPX)
  • Motion Vectors Export – Ability to 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. (Not available with Catalyst Edit, Hitfilm, Movie Studio, Natron, Nucoda, Vegas Pro, FCPX)
