Technical requirements

  • The Foundry Nuke version: 6.2 or above

  • Main use cases: depth key frame creation and depth refinement, generation of micro-relief for depth map

Depth Effects

YUVsoft Depth Effects is a professional plugin for The Foundry Nuke that enables you both to create draft depth maps from scratch and to improve existing ones. In both cases processing is done automatically, but you have a variety of options for influencing the resulting depth map by changing parameters, applying filters and enabling sky detection.

Key features of YUVsoft Depth Effects are

  • Fast automatic depth map creation for an input video or for a single frame
  • Addition of details to crude hand-painted depth maps
  • Correction of inaccuracies in boundaries
  • Especially fine processing of outdoor panoramic scenes

If you are not satisfied with the quality of the result, you can use other YUVsoft plugins to improve it:

Depth map refined with Depth Effects and final depth map enhanced using YUVsoft Depth Brushes

Depth Effects has a variety of options for improving the detail and quality of the resulting depth maps; for example, Post-processing reduces object boundary leakage, and Two-pass mode improves the contours of background objects. Selectable Depth Effects parameters are also at your service. For instance, by regulating the Horizontal strength and Vertical strength parameters, you can obtain better results in cases of complex object boundaries or complex structure. For example, when you’re dealing with images that have complex vertical boundaries, we recommend increasing Horizontal strength.
