RE:Vision Effects has released version 2.0 of its FieldsKit 2.0 plug-ins for de-interlacing footage. The plug-ins work with After Effects and compatible applications.
The upgrade adds the motion estimation found in the company's Twixtor and ReelSmart Motion Blur, which provides smarter de-interlacing and better workflow options for interlacing and pulldown, according to RE:Vision Effects.
Also new in FieldsKit 2.0 are floating point image support for After Effects 7.0, a render-only licensing option, and fixed other small bugs with the Reinterlacer and Pulldown plugins that sometimes necessitated workarounds.
FieldsKit 2.0 is priced at $89.95 (around £47). Upgrades from version 1 are priced at $29.97 (around £15.75). Render-only licenses are priced at $17.99 (around £9.50). Render only licenses are for use with After Effects' and combustion's render-only programs (aerender and backburner, respectively) and the render-only version of Fusion.
The plug-ins are compatible with Adobe's After Effects 5.0 and later, Adobe Premiere Pro 1.0 or later, Apple's Final Cut Pro 4.0 or later, Autodesk’s combustion 2.1 or later, eyeon’s Fusion 4.04e or later, 5.02 or later, and Quantel’s generationQ product line.
