Features

A selection of hosted filters for solving common video processing challenges, courtesy of the powerful FFmpeg software package.

Output up to UHD 8K

Processes and outputs video in any resolution from 16x16 pixels up to UHD 8K.

High throughput

These classic filters are generally highly performant, designed for balanced accuracy vs speed trade-off.

Save money

Being lighter on computing resources compared to ML-based filters means these filters are less expensive.

Time-tested algorithms

The usefulness of these algorithms has been proven on millions of video frames.


Deinterlacers

Below is a description of the three available deinterlacing filters.

YADIF (Yet Another Deinterlacing Filter)

"This deinterlacing filter checks pixels of previous, current and next frames to re-create the missed field by some local adaptive method (edge-directed interpolation) and uses spatial check to prevent most artifacts." (Source)

Applying this filter does not change the target video frame rate.

Weston Three-Field

"Based on the process described by Martin Weston for BBC R&D, and implemented based on the de-interlace algorithm written by Jim Easterbrook for BBC R&D, the Weston 3 field deinterlacing filter uses filter coefficients calculated by BBC R&D." (Source)

Applying this filter doubles the target video frame rate.

Bob Weaver

An attempt to fuse the best properties of YADIF and Weston Three-Field via cubic interpolation. (Source)

Applying this filter doubles the target video frame rate.

Denoisers

Below is a description of the only available denoising filter.

3D Denoiser

"This is a high precision/quality 3d denoise filter. It aims to reduce image noise, producing smooth images and making still images really still. It should enhance compressibility." (Source)

Scalers

Below is a description of the only available scaling filter.

Bicubic Interpolation

A more complicated resampling scheme than nearest neighbor and bilinear, which means it yields results with fewer interpolation artifacts. (Source)

Stay tuned as additional useful video filters are added in the future!
