"The Swiss Army Knife of Visual Effects" Now Available to Sony Vegas Pro 10 Editors
Boris Continuum Complete 7 for Sony Vegas Pro Feature Highlights
- Professional Chroma Key Compositing. BCC 7 for Vegas Pro facilitates the creation of precise keys with a minimal amount of adjustment. The chroma key filters allow editors to control background filtering or matting, edge softening and refinement, and light wrapping and reflections to produce seamless composites.
- Automated Motion Tracking. Powerful, specialized filters allow editors to recover motion data from a clip and then use the data to apply effects. For example, BCC Witness Protection allows editors to track a logo on a t-shirt and apply a blur to obscure the logo. Mosaic, tint, or brightness/contrast effects could also be applied to the specified area.
- PixelChooser Technology. The Boris PixelChooser masking system is built in to most BCC 7 for Vegas Pro filters giving editors ultimate control by allowing them to selectively apply BCC filters to video via region or channel-based mattes.
- High-quality Image Restoration Tools. BCC for Vegas Pro includes tools for smoothing and softening skin imperfections and removing jaggies, DV compression artifacts, and unwanted noise from image clips.
- Popular Film Effects include Film Process, Glow, Match Grain, and Film Damage, allowing editors to create the warm organic look of film in seconds.
- Dazzling Light Effects include Rays, Glints, Glitters, Lens Flares, and Lightning, allowing editors to create just the right mood for titling effects and animated backgrounds.
- Painterly Effects simulate pencil-sketched images, the wash look of a water color painting, a rotoscope toon-animation look, and charcoal drawings.
- Realistic In-Camera Effects include Lens Blur for emulating a rack defocus effect where out-of-focus highlights of an image clip take on the shape of the lens shutter.
- Stylized Effects include LED, Damaged TV, Tile Mosaic, Prism, and Halftone.
- Thousands of Customizable Presets provide a broad selection of pre-built effects. Presets can be saved and shared with other editors – even across host applications and platforms.
- Interactive Effects Design Experience. Every BCC for Vegas Pro filter is either OpenGL-based or multiprocessor-accelerated for ultimate rendering speed.
