Restoring and correcting artifacts in film has historically been a very time consuming and highly manual labour. Over the years, software companies have made efforts to release products that relieve some of this manual labour by semi-automating tasks. The user interface has often been quite technical and not very user-friendly so even with a complete feature-set they are often very hard to use.

This is where Recuro Media comes in. Our goal is to provide you with an online cloud-based tool to simplify film restoration, at a fraction of the price and time spent.

Film Restoration Filters

Dust & Noise

  • Dust & Scratches removes stray hairs, retouches scratches and repairs damaged frames.
  • Noise removes all inconsistent noise between frames and creates a smoother frame appearance.
  • Keep Grain lets you keep the grain in the film if you want that classic look of film.

Color & Contrast

  • Color Balance evens the white balance and removes discolourations often found in aged film.
  • Color Saturation restores the color saturation in scenes that have a low saturation of colours.
  • Contrast Expansion increases the contrast which increases details and sharpness.

Motion & Stability

  • Image Stabilization Reduces high frequency jitter from time of scanning.
  • Reduce Flicker reduces light flickering between frames in old B/W movies.
  • Content Stabilization reduces shakiness caused by instabilities when film was shot.

Miscellaneous Filters

  • Vertical Scratches reduces long constant vertical scratches along the frame.
  • High Frame Rate doubles the frame rate for a more fluid motion.
  • Bad Scene Changes replaces up to two bad frames between scenes.

Advanced Filters

  • Color Casting clears the colors in a film that is covered in a strong color haze.
  • Adaptive Sharpness sharpens details in frames depending on scene sharpness.
  • Natural Speed makes silent films (16fps scanned at 24/25fps) move along at a natural speed.

Audio Filters

  • Volume Normalization increases volume to a normalized level without clipping.
  • Reduce Noise reduces background noise without affecting clarity.
  • Increase Clarity increases clarity and makes voices and details easier to hear.
