Sorry I was not able to personally demo Primal to you as I was
splitting my time with demoing our software on an Inferno on
We showed true sub pixel gaussian filters in real time. No one
else can do this. This generates photo quality defocus. We also
showed a cool sharpen tool and other stuff. We wrote the Star
filter expecially for the show to attract attention. On a crowded
booth with strange film and monitoring it is hard for anyone
to assess how good a particular algorithm is such as sharpen
so we chose an over the top filter example to show Primal can
generate anything. Diffussion filters such as Promist are easier
to generate but less obvious to people walking past the booth.
Yes I agree the real life usage of a star filter is small as
indeed is the Fire works spark plug in from 5D for Discreet systems
but they demonstrate possibilities. In the 4 weeks since the
show we have added auto colour calibration, grain suppression
and dynamic masks. Primal is software based and will grow and
grow, importantly from the feedback of colourists needs. I appreciate
your critisism, please tell me, write a list to me, of filters
you would like to have.
