Mimikri After Effects Plugin

This plugin allows you to upconvert a color correction made in standard definition to high definition. It is easy to setup and rather fast. It is an After Effects filter which uses three inputs: HD uncorrected, SD uncorrected and corrected and outputs a corrected HD image.


The Mimikri After Effects plugin works with Adobe After Effects 5.5 for Macintosh OS X.
