Physically accurate diffusion. Totally virtual.

Reproduce the effect of real optical diffusion filters.

Accurate, consistent, and controllable.

Built for high-end production. Right in DaVinci Resolve.

Physically-based. Data-driven.

Diffusion intensity and spatial falloff are empirically mapped according to scene radiance.

Looks just like the real thing across different cameras and lighting conditions.

Better than on-set diffusion

No light loss, no flares, no back reflections, no speckled bokeh.

Tweakable, keyframe-able, mask-able, highlight-adjustable

Consistent characteristics across focal lengths.

Completely color neutral.

Diffusion belongs in post

Fine-tune diffusion during the grade with the context of the edit.

Responds dynamically to image alterations like power windows and composites.

Looks just as great on CGI as it does on live action, and it won't ruin VFX plates.

Diffuse each deliverable differently, from HDR to SDR to VCR.
