Winner of the IBC 2005 New Product Award, Forge is a command line application that processes digital film scans and automatically detects and corrects flecks of dirt, dust and hair.

Forge takes a sequence of images, detects and repairs the dirt and writes out a sequence of cleaned images and, optionally, the mask that identifies the dirt. Forge can be scripted to repair frames as they come out of your scanner or be left to run overnight in batches.


  • Reads digital film scans in dpx, cineon and SGI file formats.
  • Writes out cleaned images.
  • Writes out images showing the dirt detected.
  • Optionally uses Northlight IR scans to repair dirt.
  • Fully automated process.
  • Uses motion estimation to repair the dirt using information in other frames.
  • Command line.
  • Internal calculations performed with floating point precision.
  • Currently available on Linux 32 and 64 bit and Mac OS X (Universal binary).
