Founded in 2009, Tessive has been developing methods to better capture the real world in cinema cameras. Their first product, the Time Filter, was a system that fundamentally changed the way motion is captured with cine cameras. The Time Filter was introduced in June 2011.  It met with excellent reviews and is used in many productions.  

Adopting the latest technology, Tessive has now introduced the Time Shaper software system, which can use high frame rate capture to synthesize a wide variety of shutters when rendering output footage. This technique yields stunning motion with no extra equipment during shooting and allows control of motion representation during post production.

 

 

...the biggest advance in shutters since, um, shutters were invented.
— Adam Wilt, ProVideoCoalition
If you want a smoother shutter rendering on your digital footage, this is a serious innovation — brilliant, in my opinion.
— Ryan Koo, NoFilmSchool
