There are some plugins out there that compete with my original Electronic Makeup Artist. They do a good job, but the render times can be
- For one minute of 30fps 1080P ProRes 4444 - Original EMA: 18 minutes, Fast EMA: 8 minutes, competition: 4 hours
- The Fast EMA plugin, much like the original Electronic Makeup Artist, does selective smoothing of skin tones while using edge detection techniques to maintain enough detail to avoid an overly blurry, “vaseline lens” look.
- Although the fast EMA plugin is not as flexible as the original EMA, it is easier to use. This simplicity translates into increased speed both in workflow and processing and means it is generally about 2 to 3 times faster than EMA and 30 times faster than the competition.
