Photoshop De-blurring

Photoshop have created the ability to de-blur photos. If you take a photo and its all blurry then all you need to do is simply open it in Photoshop, and it brilliantly analyses it and works out how it got blurred in the first place. Then you can correct it – making the image clear and crisp. It is just plain amazing.



In the video above you also see them use the de-blurring on a photo of text, and it goes from a blurry mess to readable in moments – fantastic.


So if they can do this with photos, how about video? Everyone in the video production world would kill for this feature while editing, so if they can do it to photos I don’t see why they can’t do it to moving footage.


Obviously it would have to be done a frame at a time, which would be a problem as it may take a very, very long time to render, but can you imagine a world where you get back to you computer after a shoot, realise that some of the footage is out of focus and for that to no longer be a problem. Now that would be amazing.


I would love to see this applied to video editing software as well as Photoshop, but that may be a while away as there is no guarantee that this will be in Photoshop CS6. We can only hope that it is.
