Executive Producer

Boris 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.
