from a Digital Anarchy press release
Digital Anarchy, a leading provider of cost-effective special effects software for Adobe and Apple products, today announced the immediate availability of ReSizer 2.0, a plug-in for resizing footage or up-converting Standard Definition to High Definition in After Effects, Final Cut Pro and Premiere Pro. The ReSizer algorithms intelligently scale footage and images, giving designers and filmmakers the power to produce high-quality SD to HD up-conversions while staying on time and within budget.
ReSizer 2.0 has three algorithms for scaling, which gives users flexibility in finding the right method for specific footage. Users also have control over how much these algorithms sharpen or smooth the footage, allowing them to further tailor the options. ReSizer produces extraordinary results whether footage is being up-converted from SD to HD or zoomed in 800%, because of the multiple methods available to accurately increase the resolution of the original image. This difference is particularly noticeable in ReSizer’s ability to keep edges sharp and defined, with minimal aliasing that is usually found in up-converted footage.
For working with SD interlaced footage, ReSizer 2.0 has a Deinterlacer that makes use of motion compensation. Multiple frames of interlaced footage are analyzed and the missing scan lines are intelligently reconstructed. This process produces greater fidelity to the original image. The combination of ReSizer 2.0s smart algorithms and deinterlacing technology makes for unsurpassed quality when increasing the resolution of video or film.
Pricing and Availability
Regularly priced at USD $149, ReSizer 2.0 will be available for USD $129 through May 10, 2006. Current ReSizer 1.0 customers can upgrade to version 2.0 for USD $99, on sale for USD $79 through May 10, 2006.
