Sapphire Time Unit


The time is now

Slow down or speed up time with the Sapphire Optical Flow retimer and a whole host of other time-based effects that come with the Sapphire Time Unit.


  • Retime

    Smoothly slow down or speed up time with the Sapphire Optical Flow retimer

  • TimeWarpRGB

    Shifts the red, green, and blue channels in time by different amounts to give a temporal chroma distortion

  • TimeSlice

    Divides the output frame into slices, where each slice receives a different frame from the source clip

  • TimeAverage

    Each output frame is the average of multiple input frames: from the current frame, back to a given number of previous frames

  • Cut to dissolve

    Turns a cut without handles within a single clip into a dissolve

  • RepairFrames

    Repairs one or more frames of a clip by replacing them with a time-warped version of the surrounding frames

  • RandomEdits

    Randomly re-edits the entire source clip; the shuffling is random but repeatable

  • FieldRemove

    Adaptively removes video field interlacing artifacts from areas with motion, without blurring the stationary parts of the image

  • Flicker

    Scales the colors of the source clip by different amounts over time for a flickering effect

  • FlickerMatch

    Adds flicker to the source clip using the flicker from a second match clip

  • FlickerRemove

  • Feedback

    Frames are mixed from the past and future to create a beautiful feedback effect
