Boris To Launch Continuum
new filters for After Effects
Boris Continuum, a compositing and effects
plugin for Adobe After Effects, will ship July 25.
FX today announced
it will ship a new set of filters for Adobe After Effects. Boris Continuum
will include 20 new filters for compositing and effects in AE. It includes
a new Z Space compositor where each layer has full 3D rotation capabilities
built in with global 3D capabilities for hierarchical animation. It also
allows After Effects users to intersect layers in 3D space with soft casted
shadows, true 3D spotlights and motion blur. Other features include:
- New Z space filter
creates multi-layered composites in true 3D space. Z Space allows users
to animate and intersect layers.
- Increased speed
and functionality with expanded stock filters. Continuum expands stock
filters by adding unique functionality and improved speed. Filters like
Advanced Composite now include new Apply Modes and Velocity Remapper,
which can create smooth animations of the frame rate and accelerate
frame blending. Blending frames is now up to two to three times faster
than other velocity filters, according to Boris.
New natural effects include Snow, Rain, Star fields, Comet and Fire,
which can be formed into the shape of an alpha channel. Also developed
for Boris Continuum is a complete state-of-the-art particle generator.
- Advanced 3D text.
Reflection maps are included for making metallic or glassy-looking text,
complete with kerning, leading and multi-line support.
- Time dimension
filters. New filters allow for reordering, sequencing frames, and creating
motion changes or temporal blurs.
Continuum will be available to customers at SIGGRAPH July 25, through
resellers and via the Boris FX Web site. Available for Adobe After Effects
4.0 users on Power Macintosh systems, Boris Continuum is priced at $395.
