Digital Film Tools release reFine Posted about 7 years ago by Ian Easton - Posted in General

Hi folks,

AV3 are pleased to announce the release of reFine by Digital Film Tools.

reFine presents a new technique for performing selective sharpening, detail enhancement, edge aware smoothing, cartoon, pencil and pastel effects.

Using high-quality edge preserving filtering of still and moving images, there are considerable speedups and memory savings over existing methods. 

reFine decomposes the image into three detail layers: course, medium and fine. Each of the detail layers can be manipulated separately in various ways, for instance, sharpening or smoothing. Add to that sophisticated, but easy to use masking and you have quick isolation of image features for selective filtering. 


"reFine brings a whole new dimension to sharpening and smoothing," comments Marco Paolini, Founder and President, Digital Film Tools. “Images take on a hyper realistic, almost 3D look when adjusted to the extreme. More subtle adjustments will sharpen soft photos or at the other end of the spectrum, smooth fine details like skin blemishes. We hope photographers, editors and visual effects artists enjoy enhancing their images with reFine as much as we have.”
