A Color Matching Plug-in

Postby RJ Johnston » Thu Jun 16, 2016 2:19 am

I have recently been testing a color matching plug-in for Sony Vegas Pro called RE:Match, from revisionfx, and I was very impressed with the results. There are also versions for Premiere Pro and After Effects and a couple other editors.

I have lots of 3D stereoscopic video shot with two cameras and need a plug-in to make the colors of the left-eye video match the colors in the right-eye video as closely as possible. That's important for preventing eye strain and making the 3D effect stand out better. There is a Color Match plug-in in Sony Vegas Pro, but it doesn't match colors on a frame to frame basis and not as well as RE:Match. With the Color Match plug-in you need to split your clips when the scene changes and apply the Color Match plug-in to each clip. With the RE:Match plug-in, you have the option to automatically match each frame. You only need one plug-in on a track and all the clips on the track are taken care of by that one plug-in.

I noticed that the plug-in shows up in Sony Movie Studio 13, but some of the functionality is disabled because there isn't a Custom blending mode like there is in Sony Vegas Pro.

For After Effects and Premiere Pro versions, you can opt for the more expensive RE:Match edition that includes the RE:Stereo plug-in for fixing glares and other differences. Revisionfx does not have for sale a version for Sony Vegas Pro that includes the RE:Stereo plug-in, but the literature for the Sony Vegas version is confusing and may mislead you into thinking that the RE:Stereo plug-in is included when you buy the RE:Match plug-in. The RE:Stereo plug-in does show up in Vegas Pro, but it is a demo version and puts a big X through each frame.

If you are interested in a 30-day trial, you can go here to pick and download your version. You can create some interesting effects with this plug-in even if the frames are not of the same scene. There are various options. Possibly good for color grading.

The less expensive version is $89 US.

My 7-day trial version of After Effects is up and didn't get to try RE:Match with it.

To clarify, are you referring to Movie Studio Platinum 13 or Movie Studio 13? The latter is too crippled to be of much use.

Hi vkmast,

The RE:Match plug-in showed up in Movie Studio Platinum 13 (64-bit). Hope that helps you.

Thanks RJ,

to clarify for others, I am referring to the Color Match plug-in in my previous post.
RJ was referring to RE:Match in the paragraph I quoted.
I should have read his post right earlier;)
Anyway, I still think the basic MS 13 should be avoided.
