New features in Reckeen 3D Studio the version 1.4.21650

The list of the most important new features in 1.4.21650 version of the Reckeen system along with their short description.

Advance Chroma Key improvement

The new version of the Chroma key adds new functionalities:

  • Colour picker – specific colour selection is now possible in Advance Keyer,
    Pick colour – When you click on the button Chrominance Keyer below the highlighted Mode button , a window with a key settings opens up. Now the background color is selected with a probe. Clicking on the Pick color icon or on a color bar next to the icon, opens a window of a camera preview. Then, you have to select a location with a cursor and click there. The program will automatically sample the color as the background color and present it in the color box next to the probe icon.
  • Alpha Curve parameter – additional parameter to control shape of alpha curve
    Alpha Curve – Chroma key new slider. This new function adjusts the slope of this straight line to add (or subtract) an additional range of colours to a range of non-transparent colours. That way, the range of colours, that are similar to the background colour on which the object is located, will not be cut out by the mask. Additionally, this action highlights the details of the object, i.e. hair tips or areas on the edges of the clothes.

Simple Key improvement

You can also use it in the cases where keying is difficult in some places, due to the properties of the object’s edges or lighting.

Reckeen 3D Studio and NDI CG and DSK

DOWNSTREAM KEY – DSK FUNCTION

DSK functions are placed in the area on the right side of the vision mixer. The Switcher allows you to decide which source or which image from the inside of a virtual studio V/C is aired. However, no program can go without graphics and text panels. They are put into the broadcasted signal in the final step, on separate layers, in the form of overlays on the main signal. They are commonly referred to as DSK (Downstream Key).

Usually, panels with captions, still graphics or short computer animations are used on DSK layers. For their preparation, video formats or graphic files with a definition of transparency (i.e. alpha channel/ alpha) should be used. In the case where a signal from a camera is used as DSK, it should be connected with keying. The Reckeen 3D Studio system is equipped to support NDI sources as 2 x DSK inputs. Thanks to that you can use your favourite application that generates text and graphics on your laptop and sent it via NDI direct to DSK in Reckeen 3D Studio.
