Boris FX has released a free minor update to its Boris Continuum Complete plug-in set for video editing and compositing software. The 6.0.4 update cover the Adobe (AE), Apple (FxPlug) and Avid (AVX) versions of the tools.
The update improves integration with Apple's Motion. The BCC 6 FxPlug’s 3D Objects filters now allow 3D extruded text, logos, and EPS graphics to respond to Motion’s native camera.
The BCC Optical Stabilizer, which automatically smoothes or completely eliminates shaky camera motion, now provides more feedback during the image analysis process. In addition, a new Autoscale option automatically transform scales a locked down clip so that it fills the frame or composite window.
BCC AE filters such as Optical Stabilizer, Corner Pin, Match Move, Witness Protection, and Motion Blur are now available in Premiere Pro Version 4.1. BCC 6’s Animated Presets option has been extended to include the BCC 3D Objects category of filters. This feature lets users save animated effects for use in other projects or BCC hosts.
The new Swish Pan Transition filter for BCC AVX enables editors to create fast, camera pan-style transitions between clips. The filter is fully automated and includes controls for the velocity of the pan with on-screen display of the ease-in and ease-out curve.
BCC 6.0.4 FxPlug introduces official support for Mac OS X Snow Leopard as well as Apple’s new Final Cut Studio release and Avid’s new editing software releases: Media Composer 4, Symphony 4, and NewsCutter 8.
