Non Linear digital editing and effects includes digitizing from virtually any source and outputting or mastering to almost any format or digital stream for broadcast, online or mobile.

The team at plan9 has had the opportunity to do special effects in a number of projects. Often, we are there when the planning happens and we can help make the ideas come to fruition. Other times, we have had to 'fix' or enhance visuals in a seamless manner.

For example, we had one client who asked us to entirely remove one character from the finished ad AFTER all the effects and editing were complete - the character had to go for whatever reason - the client wanted it.

It took many hours of motion tracking and even hours of rotoscoping and image manipulation to re-finish the ad so no one could tell that one of the character had been removed. Not only that but the shots were all moving crane or dolly shots so the seamless effect was even more challenging. But, we did it.

Other times, the effects are flamboyant and flashy - we don't mind doing that, too.
