180+ comprehensive filters for Avid's high-resolution conform, compositing and graphics solution
Boris Continuum Complete 7 AVX for Avid DS New Feature Highlights
Ã¢Â€Â¢ BCC Noise Reduction smooths out video noise using spatial and temporal information derived from the video clip – especially in dark areas of an image.
Ã¢Â€Â¢ BCC Particle Array 3D creates a grid of particles oriented in 3D space.
Ã¢Â€Â¢ BCC Pin Art 3D creates a pin board look based on a layer image.
Ã¢Â€Â¢ BCC Lens Blur emulates a popular lens blur or rack defocus effect where out-of-focus highlights of an image clip take on the shape of the lens shutter. The filter includes a gradient map layer to control the depth of focus.
Ã¢Â€Â¢ BCC Lens Shape is a designer effect similar to a rack defocus effect where the shape of the bokeh can be imported from an external layer.
Ã¢Â€Â¢ BCC Lens Transition is a wipe filter that applies a lens blur or rack defocus effect to the specular highlights of outgoing and incoming image clips.
Ã¢Â€Â¢ Compare Mode. Added to over one-third of BCC 7 AVX for DS filters, Compare Mode is a convenient tool that enables users to compare the filtered result with the unfiltered source via either a side-by-side view or a live split-screen view. In the side-by-side view, users can view the unfiltered and filtered image result in the preview window as changes are made to the image. In the split-screen view, users can drag the wipe bar anywhere across the image to compare the filtered result with the unfiltered source at any zoom level. Additionally, the Compare Mode feature includes the unique ability to view the filtered result with a live filtered layer in the timeline.
Ã¢Â€Â¢ On-Screen Overlay Control Widgets. The most commonly-used parameters in each BCC AVX for DS filter are now accessible via Avid-native on-screen overlay widgets, each with dynamic parameter value displays that update automatically as the widget is adjusted. Color-coded and easy to use, the new widgets allow parameter adjustments while the editor’s eye remains focused on the image.
Ã¢Â€Â¢ Performance Gains. The new BCC Pin Art 3D and BCC Particle Array 3D filters integrate a new particle engine that is OpenGL-accelerated. All BCC 7 AVX for DS filters take advantage of either multi-processing or OpenGL hardware acceleration to deliver an interactive effects design experience.
Ã¢Â€Â¢ Avid Media Composer and Symphony Compatibility. BCC 7 AVX for DS filters are fully compatible with BCC 6 AVX or BCC 7 AVX effects when sequences are conformed from Avid Media Composer or Symphony projects to Avid DS.
Ã¢Â€Â¢ Boris AAF Transfer Support. BCC 7 AVX for DS is supported by Boris AAF Transfer, a new plug-in that facilitates seamless transfer of Final Cut Pro sequences with BCC 7 FxPlug filters to Avid DS or Avid Media Composer. BCC 7 FxPlug filters are translated to corresponding BCC 7 AVX for DS filters – including keyframed changes.
