  • RestorationManager+ (improved)
    The overall usability of DIAMANT-Film has been improved and usage has been simplified. The improved full screen mode allows quick access to parameters and viewing selections.
  • Annotation functionality (new)
    A new annotation functionality has been added to the RestorationManager+. With this Annotator the user can annotate freely a film prior to restoration. This also helps in the restoration planning. Reports can be generated for Excel, OpenOffice, HTML and XML.
  • New stabilization functions (added)
    There are 2 new stabilisation functions (StabROI and Stabilize) as a next generation of film stabilisation. Whereas Stabilize does all for you in an automatic way, with highly increased calculation speed, StabROI is a fast approach for interactive stabilisation.
  • Batch rendering (new)
    Allows to predefine renderings and queue them up as well as an automatic re-rendering of a whole project
  • DFlickerFlow (new)
    As an alternative to the well established de-flickering based on reference-images, there is a new type of integrative de-flicker to create very density and color-stable films.
  • Omniclean (new)
    The OmniClean filter is a filter using many frames as input to create a large volume which is used to clean the images. This filter will reduce noise, smaller single frame defects and also flickering in one pass. With this filter it is possible to enhance highly degraded input material since the redundancies from multi image inputs can be used.
