In this PFClean tutorial, we'll take our first steps into Pixel Farm's film restoration software. PFClean is a restoration software that will allow the user to fix and restore damaged footage that is sampled via tapes or film. We'll learn how to navigate the software and its unique user interface. We'll also learn how to use the cutting tool and how to utilize the software's built in effects. By the end of the PFClean training, you'll be able to fix common issues that are commonly found in old footage, such as color fading, jittering, scratches, and issue with dirt. Software required: Pixel Farm's PFClean 2014.3.
Introduction and Project Overview Hi everyone, my name is Michael Raphaelovich. I'm a Matchmoving Supervisor and Compositing Lead at Cinema 1 Film and FX. My latest work includes commercials, music videos, and other video-based projects. In this course, we're going to take our first step at PFClean, a film and video restoration software from The Pixel Farm. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to navigate the software's unique user interface, how to cut the footage into individual shots, how to treat each shot separately, how to use various stacks in order to fix various problems with the footage, and how to export the footage into new files. Before we get started, Digital-Tutors would like to thank Dissolve and their contributor, Confluence Media, for their videos that were used in this series of lessons. You can access the same videos, and thousands more, at dissolve. com. With the help of the footage, and by the end of this training, you will have learned how to work in PFClean and start restoring old footage. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these techniques with you. So let's get started with the first lesson.
