FieldsKit 2.0 plugins
RE:Vision Effects' new FieldsKit 2.0 is a set of plugins that provide smarter deinterlacing and better workflow options for interlacing and pulldown. FieldsKit 2 now includes the powerful motion estimation found in Twixtor and ReelSmart Motion Blur. Other new features include a Deinterlacer mode that uses motion estimation in order to deinterlace and a reinterlacer mode that uses motion estimation to create interlaced material from progressive material. It also offers floating point image support for After Effects 7.0 and adds a render-only licensing option. FieldsKit 2.0 is priced at $90, while upgrades are $30. Render-only licenses are $18. It is compatible with Adobe's After Effects 5.0 and later, Adobe Premiere Pro 1.0, Apple's Final Cut Pro 4.0, and Autodesk's combustion 2.1. FieldsKit 2.0 and other of RE:Vision Effects products will be showcased at DV Expo (booth 819), which runs from November 15-17 in Los Angeles.
