ARRI Relativity™ is a powerful suite of software tools that offers fast, efficient and interactive control of texture and time using sophisticated motion estimation techniques. ARRI Relativity™ software is powered by Pixel Strings™, the first engine to harness the potential of GPU-based parallel processing for motion estimation and spatial-temporal image filtering. In its most comprehensive version, the entire Relativity software bundle is currently comprised of three different applications: Texture Control, Film Simulation and SpaceTime Converter, with more coming soon. The software suite is modular and easily configured to meet the needs of each customer. All tools have a simple interface with interactive visualization of the manipulated image.
Control the level of film grain and digital noise, mix and match the textures of 16mm, 35mm and digital images, for a particular effect or visual continuity. Reduce grain or noise prior to compression for Blu-Ray and DVD authoring or any cable/satellite/IPTV distribution while retaining picture detail. Produce impressive theatrical quality images from Super 16mm or 2-perf 35mm. With the optional Film Simulation module, make grain an aesthetic choice by adding a pleasing texture to the finished product.
Add natural looking film grain to digitally captured images or CGI. Or add the subtle grain of 35mm film to 16mm origination that has been de-grained via Texture Control.
Convert any TV or motion picture format into another, with crop/zoom, spatial resampling, frame rate conversion, de-interlacing and addition or removal of 3:2 pulldown through an easy-to-use interface. Supports real-time processing of HD or SD images. Includes audio format conversion and resampling (with or without pitch correction). Resample time for creative tempo changes, slow motion and speed ramp effects.
Provides artifact-free, single pass retiming of video and audio (up to plus or minus 10%), allowing broadcasters, content providers and post production facilities to customize program times to fit into new time slots.
Enables automated removal of dirt and scratches from film imagery with impressive speed, leaving time for the experts to work on any remaining artifacts.
