VCE has been a pioneer in the field of motion picture film restoration since 1993 when we made "Trinity and Beyond - the Atomic Bomb Movie" using the oldest and original tools of the digital restoration trade: Photoshop.

From a photochemical standpoint, Pete Kuran won an Academy Award for the development of the RCI process. A photochemical process to return the color to faded color negatives.

Over the last 15 years on the digital side, equipment, computers, programs and storage have all improved and we have worked with many innovative tools to push the envelope in restoration.

Currently, our tools of the trade include Nuke, Furnace, Shake, After Effects and yes, Photoshop.
