For real-time frame averaging simply drop dVeloper on your video clip, scroll to the location in the video you want to frame average, lasso the region and that area will instantly be frame averaged. Once you get your initial results, you can easily change between color channels to see which give you to best results. All the settings provide real-time results from how many frames to average, to size and location of your region of interest, to selecting different color channels. Other products make you set them up, select a save to location, provide a name for the output, wait for it to render, then see the results. Then if you want to tweak setting to get better results, repeat all those steps and wait again. Not so with dVeloper. Watch a video on dVeloper real-time processing here.
