Digital Anarchy and Digital Film Tools Announce the Digital Film Lab/ReTimer Bundle

Distribution of Software Bundle for Making Video Look Like Film.

San Francisco, CA — July 9, 2003 —

Making video look like film just got faster and less expensive. The Digital Film Lab/ReTimer bundle allows filmmakers to give video the look of film, faster and at less cost than current solutions. This solution to the video to film problem uses the new Digital Film Lab from Digital Film Tools to create the look of film and the award winning ReTimer SD/HD from Digital Anarchy to adjust the speed of footage to create a more film-like quality.

The Digital Film Lab/ReTimer bundle gives filmmakers the full power of the Digital Film Lab plugin for creating the blurs, film grain, and optical effects necessary for the look of film as well as the full ReTimer package using their innovative time warping technology to give video the speed of film. Since both products are fully featured, you are not limited to just creating a film look. You can use ReTimer’s powerful time warping technology to slow footage down by a factor of 6 or more, or use it to speed footage up, creating a realistic motion blur.
