Red Giant's Magic Bullet Instant HD 1.2 (Academic Pricing) up-converts DV video into a variety of HD video formats. Choose from a list of preset resolutions to easily integrate DV video into your next High Definition production. When scaling from standard definition (SD) to high definition (HD), Instant HD's algorithms generate the missing pixels with integrated sharpening and anti-aliasing for sharp, clear results inside your favorite video application.
Note: Only eligible students and teachers are allowed to purchase this product for academic purposes.
Five simple controls allow you to specify output size, filter types, sharpness, anti-aliasing, and quality settings, and preview your results in seconds. Integrated sharpening and anti-aliasing controls reduce the "fuzziness" and/or jagged lines that are often a telltale sign of up-conversion.
Choose from over 40 resolution presets for the most popular screen sizes, or enter a custom size to render to any resolution you like. Instant HD will automatically choose the most effective of two scaling options for your destination resolution. A Lock Aspect Ratio setting helps avoid image distortion or unnatural stretching.
Includes Resizer 2.2
Following the acquisition of Digital Anarchy, Red Giant Software has integrated the Resizer plug-in as part of the Instant HD package. The filter offers great speed, a host of resizing controls, similar results to Instant HD and integrated deinterlacing controls, making the package an even greater value.
Use Instant HD output with Magic Bullet Frames to deliver professional "film look" HD masters. Convert web cam and cell phone source material to Standard Definition video. Conform standard-definition motion graphics for high definition broadcast.
