Which DVO do I need?

So, picture this. 

You’re in the edit. The composition of your frame is otherworldly, with footage pumping out an epic 50fps, now all that’s left is to create that gorgeous, cinematic film. 

Then BAM!

Some miserable anomalies have decided to invade your masterpiece. Leaving you with an awkward decision; Lose it or reshoot it? 

Not so fast my friend.

Chances are Filmworkz have a DVO for that. In fact, to help you figure out which one could save your bacon here’s all six in more detail…

CLARITY

What is it?

Only the grain management tool to end all grain management tools. No matter what state the footage is in, Clarity can bring even the noisiest video back from the void with full control over your RGB grain levels you’ll be equipped to manage that noise effectively. Better still, Clarity is artefact free so you’ll never have to worry about impacting the quality of the original film. 

What should it be used for? 

Let’s face it, at some point you’re going to see noise crop up, even if it’s subtle. A light polish is a cinch for Clarity but where this tool really earns its stripes is documentary-style projects, where shooting conditions are unpredictable and need that extra attention.  

Take a look at Clarity in action:

TOP TIP: If dealing with footage shot on two different cameras, you can strip away noise from the poorer quality lense to match the better camera. 

SHARPEN

What is it?

As sharp as a samurai sword and as deft a surgeon’s scalpel. Sharpen does exactly that, sharpens the image and not the noise. Using its smart, edge-aware technology Sharpen intelligently clears images without adding extra noise, meaning you’re able to enhance both the crispness and strength of the detail in high and low lights. 

What should it be used for? 

Got an image where you need to protect the shadow or prevent a highlight blow out? Sharpen has you covered. Great for adjusting details like eyes, while not affecting the skin and other areas you don’t want sharpened. Equally adept at drawing the viewer to a significant feature rather than sharpening what’s out of focus, Sharpen is the full package.

TOP TIP: Eliminate the need for retakes on slightly soft or out of focus footage, use Sharpen and get the most out of every shot. 

 

REGRAIN RGB 

What is it?

The plugin you thought you’d never need but now couldn’t live without. Breathing life into digital footage by matching grain accurately, not only achieving a natural look but also a perfect transition between shots. Regraign RGB gives you unparalleled control over high, mid and low lights, including the emulsion layers that maximise colour and monochrome consistency. 

What should it be used for? 

Whether you’ve de-noised film, created CGI or motion graphics, or your digital footage is simply too clean, Regrain RGB is fully customisable, so you can create that cinematic feel effortlessly.

TOP TIP: Unlike other grain tools, Regrain RGB is fully customisable, which allows you to match grain shot for shot. 

PIXEL

What is it?

The ultimate unsung hero in your superhuman DVO arsenal. Pixel is an automated dead pixel finder that zeros in on faulty pixels and repairs them instantly, keeping your otherwise beautiful footage free from presky zombie pixels.  

What should it be used for? 

The clock is ticking, you’re pushing right up to the deadline, and the last thing you need is for your project to be rejected because of some tiny blemishes. Not so with Pixel, which repairs them without you even noticing. 

Take a look at Pixel in action:

TOP TIP: Just because you can’t see a dead pixel, doesn’t mean it’s not there. Illuminate them with Pixel and increase quality control automatically. 

 

CHROMA

What is it?

Chroma is the ace up an artist’s rolled-up sleeve. Making light work of fringing and video bleeding as well as artifacts like chromatic aberration, it pulls those troublesome refracted wavelengths back into line! 

What should it be used for? 

For any footage shot on lower quality lenses that regularly cause coloured fringes along hard edges due to poor lens construction. Which although may seem very subtle in isolation, can instantly elevate the overall quality of the film. 

Take a look at Chroma in action:

TOP TIP: Expensive lenses beware, with Chroma you can make footage shot on a cheaper lense look immediately better quality. 

 

BRICKWALL

What is it?

When you’ve hit a brick wall on some ugly flickering footage use Brickwall. You’ll never have to scrap footage or face an expensive reshoot again. Brickwall simply eats moiré patterning for breakfast and dines out on artefacts and unwanted frequencies, squashing mosquitoes in its sleep. 

What should it be used for? 

Weird patterns and flickering happen when an object has repetitive details such as lines or dots, which exceeds the sensor resolution and produces wavy patterns on video.  Especially handy with delicate archive film or heavily compressed drone footage. 

Take a look at Brickwall in action:

TOP TIP: Image compression for social media can be tricky but with Brickwall it’s super easy, helping you keep the file size down and image quality high.
