Speed up, slow down, and reverse your clip. Punch up action sequences with temporal blur. Add time loops with Continuum Unit: Time. Includes 12 filters & 100+ presets. Cross-host license.
Caution: If you already own Boris Continuum, purchasing and installing a new unit or filter will overwrite the whole product and you will only be able to use the filter or unit you purchased.
Boris Continuum Unit: Time Highlights include:
- Integrated Academy Award-winning Mocha masking and planar tracking system
- Jitter and Jitter Basic auto-animating source jittering effects
- Time Looper generator for smooth or staggered time loop effects
- The Temporal Blur effect blurs only pixels that move over time
- Optical Flow pixel synthesis retimer filter
- Trails and Trails Basic source replicators with unique multi-effect insert option
- Beat Reactor audio-source keyframe generator
The Continuum Time Unit offers multi-host support with a single license.
Boris Continuum Unit: Time Features
- On-screen control widgets
- Professionally designed factory installed presets
- Integrated FX Browser
- Integrated PixelChooser matte and masking system
- Support for Adobe host native mask shapes
- Integrated Mocha masking and planar tracking system
- Integrated Beat Reactor for audio generated VFX
- Hardware acceleration (OpenGL/OpenCL)
- Multi-processor (SMP) and multi-core (CMP) support
Many of the plugins include the built-in PixelChooser, with mocha planar tracking, allowing for greater control over which areas of the image the ﬁlter should affect.
The BCC Beat Reactor for Adobe After Effects to generate keyframes based on an audio track within the composition. Use these keyframes to affect other parameters within the composition with simple AE expressions to link the generated keyframes to other parameters. Additionally, copy and paste the generated keyframes to other parameters.
Beat Reactor displays a spectrum graph including vertical bands representing the audio levels within various frequency ranges. Use this graph to help target particular elements within the audio track for use in generating keyframes.
Jitter & Jitter Basic
Boris Continuum Complete includes both a BCC Jitter and BCC Jitter
Basic. The two ﬁlters are very similar except that BCC Jitter Basic does not
include all the parameters. BCC Jitter provides more options for controlling
The BCC Jitter filter allows you to vary one or more attributes of a
source layer over time, such as size, position, opacity, brightness, or
contrast. Additional controls choose the type of variance used for the
jittering and allow you to view color-coded graphs of the jittered parameter
The BCC Looper filter allows you to quickly create looped effects. You can animate the number and duration of loops, offset the loops automatically, and create fades and dissolves between the looped clips.
The BCC Optical Flow ﬁlter estimates the motion between two frames of video and renders an intermediate frame that interpolates the motion. The synthesized frame contains a mixture of the previous and next frames, each distorted by an amount determined by the optical ﬂow estimation. With this ﬁlter, you can smoothly slow down or speed footage. Optical Flow generally produces smoother animations than a velocity remaps ﬁlter.
Optical Flow synthesizes frames needed to complete the effect instead of blending adjacent frames as most retiming applications do. In essence, Optical Flow manufactures entire frames. Optical Flow analyzes the frames before and after the current frame to determine which pixels are moving. Then, synthesize, repositioned, and composite only the moving pixels into the new frame. The intervening information is created by warping the two frames, estimating where each individual pixel should be at every new in-between point.
Create strobe effects by altering the frame rate of the source media. In addition, adjust the length of time for which each frame. Use apply modes and the PixelChooser to mix the time-posterized output with the original in various ways.
The BCC Sequencer filter allows you to create a looping sequence up to 10 steps long. Each step is comprised of a clip from a layer in the composition. The source layer, start frame, length, and velocity of each step clip can be controlled and animated independently.
The BCC Temporal Blur filter blurs the image over time by averaging two or more source frames to produce each output frame.
The BCC Time Displacement ﬁlter is a displacement map that operates in time instead of in space. Pixels are displaced by mixing pixels from the source at the current frame with source pixels from previous or future frames. Basic frame blending is used to compute intermediate pixels and to produce anti-aliased results.
Trails & Trails Basic
The BCC Trails filter creates motion trails, video echoes, and video feedback effects which can be combined in a variety of ways.
Boris Continuum Complete includes both a BCC Trails and BCC Trails Basic. The two ﬁlters are very similar except that BCC Trails Basic does not include all the parameters. BCC Trails provides more options for controlling the effect, while BCC Trails Basic comes streamlined for when you want to create simple Trails effects.
The BCC Velocity Remap filter allows you to adjust and animate the frame rate of a video image and to blend adjacent frames to create smoother motion effects.
