Easily beautifies harsh wrinkles in "close ups" of the skin.This is all the more important with the advent of HDTV where such details are easily visible. By simplifying tedious sequential operation usually required in beautifying the skin, O-gi frees editors for more important things.
Suppresses "mach banding" on digital cel animation.Mach banding, where dark or light edges appear along the edge of a blurred contour between light and dark areas of an image, is a problem most likely to occur in color gradations on 8-bit digital cel animation. These bandings are troublesome because their visibility sometimes depends on the monitors being used and they often don't become visible until the DVD encoding is accomplished.
Removes sparkle and grain noise while preserving edges and details.Most standard edge preserving filters allow you to blur the film grain noise but often require complicated parameter adjustments to remove the noise.
Brings luminance/chroma levels smoothly into conformance with video "legal" limits.With most video legalizers, video signals that exceed "legal" video limits would be just chopped off causing details to be lost and resulting in a degradation of the video quality.
Warns the video editiors of digital and analog video noise that may not be initially apparent when viewed on a monitor.This is especially true for noise that gets integrated when transferring to tape and back.
