Depth Propagation

Software today is intelligent enough to do almost all the work of depth map creation automatically. YUVsoft Depth Propagation is a professional plugin for Adobe After Effects that allows you to extend a single key frame depth map to an entire video, creating the depth map for each frame on the basis of the source depth map.

Key features of YUVsoft Depth Propagation are

  • Fast automatic depth map creation for background areas
  • Support for object depth variation over time
  • Accurate motion processing
  • Suppression of depth leakage across object boundaries

The General post-processing mode performs accurate smoothing by adjusting the depth on the object’s boundaries. Leakage suppression weakens thin flowing of incorrect depth. This mode is useful when the object boundaries are blurred in the source image.
