Motion picture cameras have a problem with time.
When panning, the background judders. Wheels appear to spin backwards, picket fences and brick walls jump across the screen, and helicopter blades look, well, just wrong. For a century, it's just been accepted that motion imaging would simply do these things, and there was nothing that could be done to fix it.
Tessive has an answer to this: the Tessive Time Filter. It is an entirely new way to represent motion in existing digital motion picture cameras. It's a global liquid crystal shutter that is placed in front of the lens and is synchronized with frame acquisition.
The Time Filter dramatically changes the look and feel of motion in-camera, recording the natural fluidity of the real world without loss of sharpness.
The Time Filter improves any motion and in all cases will result in a cleaner, more organic scene. It is especially useful for:
- Fixing judder in pans.
- Correcting repeating motion, such as wheels, fences, and aircraft propellers.
- Eliminating flicker from lighting, regardless of frame rate or line frequency.
- Virtually eliminating flicker on plasma or CRT displays.
- Reducing striping or tearing artifacts from uncontrolled strobes and flashes.
- Rendering human movement more accurately and flowingly.
