Apply Digital Makeup, Remove Flicker, Reduce Noise, and Fix Pixels
The Boris Continuum Image Restoration Unit includes powerful filters for smoothing and softening image clips, removing flicker, repairing bad pixels, and removing aliasing or jaggies from images. BCC Smooth Tone is an "electronic makeup" tool for saving shots with skin blemishes or substandard makeup while preserving sharpness and full image detail. With BCC Flicker Fixer, BCC Pixel Fixer, and BCC DV Fixer, you can fix flicker and auto-iris issues, remove damaged pixels or dust, and eliminate jaggies and compression artifacts from DV footage. BCC Motion Key is the ultimate in "clean plate"-generating tools, removing moving objects from static shots. With BCC UpRez, scaling from SD to HD, HD to 2K, or even 2K to 4K is possible while maintaining image integrity. BCC Noise Reduction smoothes out noise from camera images without losing detail. BCC Wire Remover helps with removing rigging and staging wires from a shot.
These valuable post-production tools are a "must-have" for all editors!
