TrueCut Motion is a powerful solution that unlocks the ability for directors, cinematographers, theatrical exhibitors, streaming services and TV manufacturers to deliver picture quality optimized for a superior motion viewing experience exactly the way the director intended across all screens. This unique, first-of-its-kind motion grading solution provides filmmakers with advanced mastering tools to control how motion is visualized in their films, not only in theaters but also in consumers’ homes.

As a result, TV and Cinema viewers will be able to experience incredible motion, consistently delivered the way the filmmaker intended across different screens.
