Typically, colorists encountering specks or other damages within frames during the restoration process make a handwritten list noting the location of each. This list is then passed to a technician who may have to search through hundreds of thousands of frames to find the exact ones for repair, an unwieldy and time-wasting process that is prone to error.
An industry first, the new Revival and Resolve integration streamlines and automates this process, enabling the colorist working on Resolve to mark frames for repair quickly and easily and save them to the shared database from which they are retrieved and fixed by the Revival technician. Automatic updating of the database gives the colorist instant access to the fixed image so he or she can keep working.
The da Vinci Revival 5.2 image restoration system is the company‘s all-in-one toolkit for film repair and restoration that works in both automatic and interactive modes to fix scratches, instability, damage, fading and staining, and dropped pixels. The da Vinci Resolve digital mastering suite integrates the company‘s award-winning image enhancing tools into a DI workflow.
Visit da Vinci at the 2008 NAB Show in Las Vegas, April 14-17, in booth SL2620.
