Effects

Corner Pin

The BCC Corner Pin filter allows you to map media to a specific area on a moving object in a media file.

For example, your media includes a moving bus with an advertisement on its side. You could use Corner Pin to track and replace the advertisement with a logo.

Corner Pin offers a number of different ways to customize the filter:

  • Pin Over Source: Displays the corner pin image composited over the filtered track
  • Corner Pin Only: Will display the corner pin image composited over the full sized source image
  • Punch Hole: Displays the filtered track with an alpha channel where the corner pin image will appear
  • Show Corner Region: Displays the full size corner pin track inside the corner pin region with the alpha chanel outsize the area of the corner pin.

 

Match Move

With the BCC Matchmove filter, we have added to the compositing style filters in the BCC set.

Use the BCC Matchmove filter to lock the movement of one image clip to another image clip using the built-in motion tracking function. One of the great advantages of using the BCC Matchmove filter to composite within your host editing application is that it includes full DVE functions such as tumble, spin, rotate, along with interesting lighting and light wrap compositing features that are normally found only in full compositing applications.

 

Witness Protection

The BCC Witness Protection filter allows you to track the motion of an object in a media file.

You can then use the motion path data to control another aspect of the effect. For example, track a logo on a t-shirt and use a blur to obscure it.

Users are able to apply various effects to a specific area. For example:

  • Mosaic
  • Blur
  • Tint
  • Brightness/Contrast
