A group of MIT researchers has come up with a way to recover lost details from your blurry images and even videos. They have developed an algorithm that recognizes and automatically recovers blurred parts in your videos and stills.
Stabilization is definitely one of the essential things to have in mind while shooting and processing the video. Computer engineers from Duke University have come up with an algorithm that quickly resolves the problem of blur caused by the shaky footage. This solution looks at the problem from a fresh angle and resolves it in a new way. And it’s now even integrated into Adobe After Effects.
This stabilization algorithm helps you handle blurry videos in a quick and efficient manner. The scientists behind the code shared the way it works, as well as some sample footage to see the software in action.
Apparently I have a thing for making dragons. It’s not surprising, seeing as I grew up collecting them and have always been a proud fantasy-nerd. For those of you who don’t recall, I previously created a baby dragon in Photoshop from pictures of lizards, which you can check out here. I had so much fun doing it the first time, and apparently exploded a lot of brains with my creature-creating prowess.
I was thinking it was about time to attempt to cause some more mind explosions, plus I guess I just love dragons. I decided to make things a bit more interesting this time around and challenged myself to create a creature out of sticks rather than animal pieces. I feel I successfully completed my mission.
If you’ve ever taken a long time lapse only to discover your shutter settings were bad, you know how frustrating it can be. Instead of having a nice blurred sequence you end up with jumpy footage. Somewhat of a staccato. While it id obviously best to get that motion blur in camera, if you totally missed it here are three ways from Preston Kanak to fix jumpy footage.
Capturing motion is in a photos that essentially freezes a moment in time is not trivial; We’ve shared works showing motion by literally freezing a high speed movement or by intentionally letting it blur. Matthew Pillsbury has a knack for capturing motion. He takes long exposure photos freezing all but the movement of people. In his recent photos, which are exhibited in Tokyo and New York, Matthew took photos of vibrant fast-paced urban areas of cities all around the globe. The results are hypnotizing.
