Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: FieldRemove


In the S_FieldRemove Plugin.

Adaptively removes video field interlacing artifacts from areas with motion, without blurring the stationary parts of the image. Unlike FieldRemove:Deinterlace and FieldRemove:NTSCtoFilm, this does not change the speed of the clip. A 'Motion Matte' is generated internally and the moving areas are deinterlaced with the usual loss of vertical resolution, but the stationary areas are not deinterlaced and should remain sharp.


Source: The clip to be processed.


Load Preset: Push-button .
Brings up the Preset Browser to browse all available presets for this effect.

Save Preset: Push-button .
Brings up the Preset Save dialog to save a preset for this effect.

Scale Mo Matte: Default: 4, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Increase to remove more field artifacts, or decrease to remove fewer and keep the image sharper.

Threshold Matte: Default: 0.05, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
This value is subtracted from the Motion Matte and can be increased to reduce unwanted deinterlacing due just to noise.

Blur Mo Matte: Default: 0.1, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Determines how much the Motion Matte is smoothed out to avoid sharp transitions between the interlaced and deinterlaced areas.

Show: Popup menu,  Default: Result .
Selects the output option.
Result: output the deinterlaced result normally.
MotionMatte: this allows viewing the Motion Matte itself, and can be helpful when adjusting the other parameters above.

Use Field: Popup menu,  Default: 1 .
Selects which field to preserve in areas with field artifacts.
1: keeps field 1.
2: keeps field 2.
Merge: Uses the average of both fields.



Mocha: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Brings up the Mocha window for tracking footage and generating masks.

Blur Mocha: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Blurs the Mocha Mask by this amount before using. This can be used to soften the edges or quantization artifacts of the mask, and smooth out the time displacements.

Mocha Opacity: Default: 1, Range: 0 to 1, Shared .
Controls the strength of the Mocha mask. Lower values reduce the intensity of the effect.

Invert Mocha: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
If enabled, the black and white of the Mocha Mask are inverted before applying the effect.

Show Mocha Only: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
Bypass the effect and show the Mocha Mask itself.

Bypass Mocha: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
Ignore the Mocha Mask and apply the effect to the entire source clip.
