Restore. Optimize. Texture.

Dark Energy Professional has been described as incredible, amazing and unequalled for image texture management by the most discerning eyes in the world.

Starting with an intuitive, real‐time feedback GUI, users can immediately see the results of their adjustments without waiting for a render, without “hoping” the adjustments will be what they want.

While other platforms struggle with slow processing, Dark Energy Professional renders as fast as your workflow demands. Powered by NVIDIA Maximus Technology, Dark Energy Professional provides users 20-24 FPS of rendering for each Tesla GPU installed in your workstation.

Dark Energy Accelerator is Cinnafilm’s batch/automated rendering tool that allows users to:

Background render already completed projects while starting work on a new project
Batch process complex folder structures based on pre‐defined templates
Combining complete control of image texture and incredible rendering speeds, Dark Energy Professional is the ultimate software for demanding users.


  • High Quality Image Scaling (DE handles any size)
  • Automatic Dustbusting, 80% hands-free without artifacts
  • Best-in class denoise/degrain without image degradation
  • Texture simulation to emulate any film stock or texture – No more film outs with the best looking film grain on market
  • Homogenize the texture from many sources (film, various cameras, etc)
  • Fully scalable render speeds – no limits
  • The fastest, most precise image texture management software in the world for cinematic releases and archive restoration.


Dark Energy Professional  has always been the fastest, most accurate degrain technology in the universe. With the 3.0 release and processing on Nvidia’s latest Tesla GPUs, we have expanded that lead to unbelievable lengths.

Using the included Dark Energy Accelerator “batch rendering” module, a Dark Energy Rendering Server is capable of using 8 Tesla GPUs to work on a single project. Maximum throughput for a 2K render using a single Dark Energy Rendering Appliance is a blistering 256 FPS! 4K images process at speeds of up to 80 FPS!

The following are real-world benchmarks taken on our Dark Energy Workstation Appliance.
Note: 2K resolution was 2048×1080 (Digital Cinema Aspect), 4K resolution was 4096×2160 (Digital Cinema Aspect)

2K Processing

Dark Energy. Nothing is more accurate and nothing, absolutely nothing, is faster.


Dark Energy is available as standalone software and a plugin for both After Effects and some of todays most popular transcoding platforms. For more information on plug-in specific features, visit the appropriate page:
