Pixel Farm 公司宣布正式推出 PFClean v2012，自從2005年推出以來，PFClean 公司對些進行了多方面的改進，包括Hollywood 好萊塢, Ollin Studios 和Hungarian Film Labs.是一款快速強大的破損影像自動修復軟件，用于VFC和DI流程的前期處理。
When PFClean exploded on to the film restoration scene in 2004 it revolutionised a market dominated by technical products that offered little consideration for usability, productivity and deadline deliveries. Delivering many industry firsts such as the unique 'non destructive' metadata toolset, completely automated dustbusting and a complete conform/editing toolset, PFClean was quickly established as the remastering and digital restoration package of choice, becoming established as a pivotal component of workflows at a veritable who's who of restoration facilities around the world such as Deluxe, Technicolor, Ascent, UPP, Pixeon, Adlabs, The Criterion Collection, Cinerec, Arri Film TV services, Cinepost, Nordisk Film to name but a few.
Auto Dirt & Dust
Arguably the best in the industry, and the tools which set the standards that our competitors follow. Can be used either in conjunction with a scanner-generated defect map, or by analysing the image using advanced dirt detection algorithms. Fast, Accurate and reliable time and time again.
An effect specifically designed to repair physical celluloid tears of any size in a single frame or across multiple frames. The Fix Tear effect will not only replace the damage, but using our infamous tracking technologies, will automatically align the undamaged portions back into position to compensate for any displacement that has occurred.
Providing an automated pre-grade colour balance to restore dye fades and age related colour issues back to original tones. Can produce stable results across entire clips, even from clip to clip.
Highly optimised and fast automatic de-spotting tool that requires no pre-processing.
PFClean's grain and noise management tools are second-to-none. Grain can be profiled and stored for later use on shots from the same reel. These profiles can then be used for grain reduction, removal or for re-graining entire shots, or to seamlessly blend a pixel level repair with the surrounding shot.
Useful for removing or softening compression artefacts associated with video and data compression.
Clean Lens Dirt
Developed for removing dirt captured between the lens and the image plane. Famous examples are 'Hair in the Gate' and 'Lens Mould', but other in camera artefacts such as sensor dirt can also be remedied.
Designed for use with footage damaged by X-Rays or poor storage, this tool can automatically detect and fix low to moderate amounts of fogging.
Fix frame uses our motion analysis and retiming technology to repair large areas of damage in a single frame, or over several frames. Can be used to generate an entirely new frame if damage is severe.
The powerful distortion model used in PFClean can be used to correct for both low and high-order radial lens distortion, and can even be animated if necessary. It is also possible for PFClean to estimate the parameters by automatically detecting straight edges in an image.
This automated effect can be used to re-align the different channels from tri-strip (eg. technicolor process) footage, or any footage where a mis-alignment has occurred, for example chromatic aberration caused by the lens.
This tool will automatically paint out a rig or wires. All the user has to do is draw a rough mask around the rig, and PFClean will detect and replace the wires. Can be used with a clean plate, if one is available.
Some say the paint tools in PFClean provide more functionality in one effect than many comparable effects systems have in their entire toolset. Our floating point paint tools make use of tracking or motion estimation algorithms, and are specifically designed to exist in multiple frames. Tightly integrated with grain management tools, it's possible to quickly and seamlessly touch up frames or entire image sequences. Typical paint brush effects are Clone, Clean, Paint, Erode, Repair, Colorize and many more.
