ReelSmart Motion Blur OFX
RE:Vision Effects has announced that the OpenFX version of its ReelSmart Motion Blur plug-ins, previously only available for Windows, are now out for Mac OS X as well as 32- and 64-bit Linux systems. Motion Blur applies or removes its titular effect to various video formats; it attempts to make the results more natural by tracking each pixel, and calculating expected movement. The software works with a variety apps, such as Assimilate Scratch.
