Beauty Box 1.0 repairs blemishes using facial recognition

updated 09:35 pm EST, Tue December 8, 2009

Smoothing amount, skin detail, radius adjustable

Digital Anarchy has introduced a retouching tool, Beauty Box 1.0, for After Effects and Final Cut Pro. The utility focuses on blemish removal and smoothing skin, with a filter that is claimed to reduce the need for masking. Facial recognition technology is allows the app to recognize skin areas. After setting the filter to auto-detect, users can simply adjust the level of smother and then render the filter.

The filter utilizes new skin-smoothing technology that focuses on wrinkles and blemished without reducing sharpness on important areas of the scene's faces. The software allows users to adjust the smoothing amount, skin detail and smoothing radius to find the right balance. The default settings are optimized for working with HD video.

Beauty Box requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and works with Premier Pro CS4, After Effects 7.0 through CS4 and Final Cut Pro 6 and 7. It will be regularly priced at $200, although an introductory offer brings the cost down to $140 through Jan. 7.

    Not so special?

    "Portraiture" and the like have been around for still images for quite some time. All they do is use a color value to auto-mask a specified range of skin tones, and apply the smoothing effect to a specify degree.

    My question is, do these plugins edit frames and put them back in the exact video format it was taken from, or are you necessarily pushed to a different video format for ease of processing?

    Can you tell me if the products make the edits in real time? If so, what kind of base spec do you need to run their plugins?
