Digital Anarchy has introduced Flicker Free 2.0, their powerful de-flicker tool, used by many editors to help fix problematic footage with flicker. Part of the update includes a huge speed increase, along with intelligent motion detection, and other new features.
Flicker Free 2.0 New Features
There's plenty to love about Flicker Free, which I recently reviewed. The plugin helps fix what many consider a common issue in video, unwanted flicker. There are many reasons video can have flicker, including slow motion, LED issues, time-lapse, etc., and fortunately Flicker Free can fix it.
Flicker Free 2.0's new features and enhancements include a big-time increase in speed, up to 300% with a good GPU, according to Digital Anarchy. The company says with 4K footage, speed increases hit up to 1000%, and with newer GPU cards like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and Quadro RTX 4000, there are speed increases up to 1500%!
Other new features include:
- A special Motion Compensation algorithm that fixes footage with moving objects or captured via handheld using optical flow. The company says it will "detect and delineate independently moving objects, even in the presence of camera motion."
- More presets that help streamline workflows.
- A powerful de-flicker algorithm that improves upon Flicker Free 1.0 when fixing rolling bands.
Flicker Free 2.0 is a must-have addition to your NLE toolkit to fix issues that pop up from time to time. It's available for Final Cut Pro X, VEGAS Pro, Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve, and After Effects. The plugin costs only $149 USD, although the upgrade price is just $89.
