Revival is a fantastic entry level Linux based software tool that lets you manually restore film originated video files in SD, HD or data up to 4K! Revival has interactive tools for the manual repair or removal of common film based image problems. These include region of interest (ROI) motion compensated dirt and dust removal with a variety of choice for support frames, reveal brush image from any clip or frame, and splice or extreme frame damage repair and frame reconstruction.
With millions of reels of film footage now needing to be restored and cleaned up for remastering to HD broadcast, Blu-ray, DVD and internet delivery, DaVinci Revival has all the tools for all types of film treatment and repair. Older film that's been stored in poor conditions can suffer from stains, damaged and broken splices and even scratches. DaVinci Revival handles all this, plus it's perfect for new film that needs a little grain reduction to get it looking perfect! Read more >
DaVinci Revival works in both manual and automatic modes. In manual workflow you have full control of each individual frame within the region of interest. In automatic mode, DaVinci Revival handles all frames, which is ideal when working on large restoration projects with lots of film. Remove or sample-and-add film grain, remove dirt and dust, de-warp damaged film, stabilize film that's weaving independently in red, green and blue, repair bad splices or even add and remove cadence!

DaVinci Revival is unmatched in rendering speed because it takes full advantage of the multiple CPUs in modern computers and has network rendering built in. Read more >
If a client arrives at your facility with a roll of film that needs cleaning up for the job, you won't need to stall the whole job. Use network rendering to blaze through. Read more >

DaVinci Revival has incredible film grain reduction tools with controls for automatic reduction using spatial blending and patch size. Often film scanning can introduce electronic noise on top of the natural film grain, however DaVinci Revival can tell the difference! Noise level and correction range can be quickly set, and all grain and noise reduction is handled independently for each color channel in either RGB or YUV for incredible results. You can choose luminance or full color processing or even sample and add grain!
Fix film dirt and dust speckles, scratches and even video dropouts fast! DaVinci Revival offers interactive dirt and dust removal tools with region of interest reconstruction and repair, with temporal, spatial and median filters to process moving images while cleaning the dirt and dust. Manually touch up dust spots using the Reveal Brush, Offset Clone Brush or luminance densities for extremely accurate repairs. Scratch repair is incredibly powerful and you could easily repair 10 scratches at once! You can even track scratches!
When film has been pooly stored as in humid environments, it can become the perfect growth medium for bacteria, mould and fungus. This kind of growth on film would normally completley destroy the film and leave it completely useless. With DaVinci Revival, you can use the de-stain tool to remove the stains caused by mould and fungus with the click of a button. Stains caused by mould damage deep into the film emulsion so there is no way to remove them, but de-stain sorts the problem out quickly and easily!
Bad telecine transfers, HMI lights, airport x-ray damage, DaVinci Revival can fix these problems and get your film back to looking incredible! Often these kinds of problems cannot be seen until after the film has been developed, scanned and gets into post production! De-Flicker works by mapping and balancing out the luminance flicker accross many frames to even out all the unevenness. If you're dealing with footage that's been shot using stop motion, then De-Flicker can be used to smooth out the variations for a wonderfully smooth shot.
Damage to the film sprockets, film shrinkage or bad splices cause the film to run through film scanners unevenly causing jumps and warps. From critical shots to priceless archive footage of historical events, sometimes problems in film cannot just be edited out, and every frame needs to be restored! DaVinci Revival has powerful tools for de-warping problematic frames. Use the automatic splice repair tool to fix reels of film with hundreds of splices quickly. De-warp and automatic splice repair will save thousands of hours in film repair.
How many times have you seen a film master weave left to right because of poor quality film to video transfer? DaVinci Revival Stabilization gives you the tools to colve the problem fast. You can set the zoom, crop, horizontal position, vertical position, rotation and zoom with full control of the processing aggression level to get the perfect result. Modern film scanners often scan red, green and blue channels sequentially and can suffer from RGB registration problems. DaVinci Reveals can stabilize the individual color channels and fix these problems.
If a client arrives at your facility with a roll of film that needs cleaning up for the job, you won't need to stall the whole job. Use network rendering to blaze through a quick film grain reduction pass, and then, if there are any dust and sparkles, you can remove them as well. Network rendering uses multiple computers so DaVinci Revival gets the job done fast. How fast is DaVinci Revival? Standard Definition on an 8 core computer can approach real time, while 2K RGB on a 16 core system can power through at a massive 8 frames per second. If that's not fast enough, just add another computer!
