What’s New in Boris Continuum Complete Version 6.0.4
• Enhanced Apple Motion Integration. BCC 6 FxPlug’s 3D Objects filters now allow 3D extruded text, logos, and EPS graphics to respond to Motion’s native camera.
• Revamped Optical Stabilizer Filter. 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.
• Improved Adobe Premiere Pro Support. Based on award-winning Optical Flow and Motion Tracking technology, workhorse 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.
• Animated 3D Objects Presets for Adobe After Effects and Avid. BCC 6’s Animated Presets option has been extended to include the BCC 3D Objects category of filters. This powerful feature lets users save animated effects for use in other projects or BCC hosts.
