Life Doesn’t Stand Still for the Camera; New App Stabilizes Shaky Videos Shot on Mobile Phones, Pocket Camcorders, Even DSLR Cameras

Northampton, UK, 29th November 2011, 2011proDAD, a world-class developer of digital video effects plug-ins and image optimization technologies for professional video editors and broadcast professionals as well as aspiring pros, today announced Mercalli Easy, a Windows app letting consumers easily fix shaky videos posting to YouTube, Facebook, etc. While some smart phones, pocket camcorders and DSLR cameras have image stabilization for video, it’s not effective in all situations. The result is many videos captured by these devices are shaky and consumers simply put up with excessive shake in their videos because they think there is no alternative.

Mercalli Easy puts an end to the common problem of shaky video by putting highly effective video stabilization into a simple drag & drop app for Windows that can quickly stabilize the video and perform some basic editing. The video is then ready to be shared via popular social media & video sharing sites, copied to mobile devices, or turned into a DVD.   It is not always possible to shoot video on a tri-pod, and some of the best video comes from shooting from a moving car, while on a boat, etc.  Mercalli Easy lets the user focus on capturing a great shot, knowing it can be stabilized later.

In addition to removing the shake from video, Mercalli Easy fixes another common, though less understood problem: Rolling-shutter distortion.  Video professionals know that rolling-shutter is a problem related to CMOS imaging sensors that are found in virtually every camera and camcorder today, and occurs almost anytime the camera is moved while shooting, or while shooting fast action.  Because of the way a CMOS sensor captures an image, scanning from the top of the sensor to the bottom, a moving camera or image will encounter skew or wobble distortion as the image has moved slightly during this scanning process.  Consumers only know the image looks wonky; though easily improved with Mercalli Easy.

Key Features of Mercalli Easy:
·         Quickly & easily removes shake from otherwise good video clips
·         Automatically corrects/improves rolling-shutter distortion, skew and wobble
·         Basic editing features – rotate video, click & drag trim editing for beginning and end of video clip
·         Based on the same great Mercalli video stabilization technology relied on by video professionals world-wide

“Effective video stabilization and image enhancement used to be only in the realm of the professional” said Andreas Huber, Managing Director of proDAD.  “We’ve seen the need for this technology at the consumer level also and created Mercalli Easy with this exact need in mind.  With Mercalli Easy, users can stabilize their videos, correct rolling shutter, and do basic editing based on the power of our professional technology, but without the complexity.”

Pricing and Availability:
Mercalli Easy is currently available for $14.95 on the Mercalli Easy website,  proDAD offers a full line of professional & semi-professional digital video effects, video titling/trailer animation, and professional video stabilization products, offered as plug-ins for popular non-linear editing (NLE) applications.  Learn more at

Reallusion Announces Key Updates To Big Lens App

Including Blur Edge Adjust and HDR function which automatically adjusts light, contrast, tones, colours and more to bring original details back into your photos.

Northampton, UK, November 29th 2011— Reallusion announces updates to Big Lens app.
Reallusion heard you loud and clear! Big Lens has been out for less than 2 months, and we have already received tons of feedback from users. Reallusion are always committed to hearing your concerns and improving our products as best we can, so we are pleased to announce the new free updates for Big Lens. (Version 1.0.1115.1)


1. HDR+ – Let there be light! 
Digital cameras do not have the dynamic range capturing capabilities that the human eye does, for this reason it is often difficult to faithfully capture colour and light depth as we see it in reality.

Big Lens now solves this challenge by including the High Dynamic Range (HDR) button for retaining graphic details that would otherwise be lost. The HDR function automatically adjusts light, contrast, tones, colours and more to bring original details back into your photos.  

2. Blur Edge Adjust – No more squinting.
Users can now adjust their blur edges by simply moving the blur edge slider. Beautify images and create a more natural feel by sharpening and smoothing your focus edge with one easy slider. 

3. Restore Last Session – Big Lens never forgets…
Big Lens now allows you to restore your last work session without having to open a saved project. Even if your Apple device turns off to save battery power or memory space, Big Lens will always keep a saved version of your last session and restore it upon restart. Never lose your work again with Big Lens. 

4. Import High-res Images – Which pixel are you again?
No longer do you have to guess which pixel your friends are. With Big Lens, now you can work with higher resolution images imported straight from your onboard digital camera.

iPhone 3G users can import up to 2MP images and Big Lens will optimize the images to 960 x 720 for editing and sharing.
iPhone 3GS/iPad 1 users can import up to 10MP images, and Big Lens will optimize to 3 MP.
iPhone 4/4S/iPad 2 users can import up to 12MP images, and Big Lens will optimize to 8MP.
