The BCC Blobs Wipe filter transitions between two layers by animating an evolving, random blobby pattern of transparency which progressively reveals the underlying layer as the size of the transparent regions increases.
The BCC Blur Dissolve filter creates a blur animation that automatically animates as your transition progresses to obscure the dissolve between clips.
The BCC Burnt Film filter simulates the look of holes burning through a layer of ﬁlm to reveal another image. This ﬁlter provides control over the appearance of the burned edges and the burn rate, and allows you to use a custom alpha matte to set the shape of the burn holes.
The BCC Checker Wipe filter transitions between two layers by animating a checkerboard pattern of transparency which progressively reveals the underlying layer as the thickness of the transparent regions increases.
The BCC Composite Dissolve filter creates unique variations on standard dissolve transitions by using apply modes and levels/gamma controls to fine tune the look of the dissolve midpoint. Leveraging the range of looks offered by the apply modes, this transition can generate an enormous number of new looks that still maintain the basic feel of a classic dissolve transition. It can be used in subtle ways such as employing the Hard Light, Soft Light or Overlay modes to boost color intensity during the dissolve midpoint which avoids the washed out colors that can characterize a classic dissolve. Modes such as Multiply, Screen, and Add can generate interesting glow-like dissolves and hybrids between classic dissolves and dip to black/white transitions.
BCC Composite Dissolve offers the unique ability to select two different apply modes and control the blend amount between the them for maximum control over the final look.
The BCC Criss-Cross Wipe filter combines two independent Multi-Stripe ﬁlters, to make wipes in a variety of patterns. At the default value, this wipe appears similar to a Grid wipe.
The BCC Cross Glitch filter is an auto-animating transition effect for simulating some of the kinds of errors and artifacts that can be apparent during digital video playback. It is useful as a style element on video or titles to create a sense of energy and movement. It makes use of auto- animation so it requires little or no keyframing.
BCC Cross Glitch allows a single glitch to last for more than one frame with controls over how that glitch grows and fades over its lifetime, thus allowing more dynamic and realistic glitch behavior that can be achieved with glitches that last only a single frame. A special Curves preview mode allows visualizing the relative locations of the glitches over time.
The BCC Cross Melt transition uses a combination of auto-animating displacement, blur, and lighting effects that post process an underlying dissolve to create a stylized melting or dream-like look as the transition progresses.
The BCC Cross Zoom filter is an auto-animating transition which uses a zoom in / zoom out motion to create a dynamic look when moving from one image to another.
Damaged TV Dissolve
The BCC Damaged TV Dissolve filter is an effect which simulates a weak or distorted video signal on a CRT television monitor for use as a transitional element between 2 images.
Fast Film Glow Dissolve
The BCC Fast Film Glow Dissolve filter is a 100% GPU accelerated version of the original BCC Film Glow Dissolve which uses OpenCL to delivers the same features and look as the original BCC Film Glow Dissolve but with dramatically increased performance. Fast Film Glow Dissolve creates a glow animation that automatically animates as your transition progresses to obscure the underlying dissolve between clips.
The BCC Flutter Cut filter produces a jumpy transition that cuts between the incoming and outgoing clips, with optional insertion of effects, colored frames, and alternate layers. The filter is always self–animating with no need to set keyframes.
The filter renders a sequence of clips that, by default, alternates between the incoming and outgoing clips in a pattern determined by the Outgoing Clip Settings and Incoming Clip Settings groups. The controls in the Colors group allow you to add a pattern of colors or alternate layers to the output sequence. The effect controls at the bottom allow you to add a couple of simple effects to selected clips in the output sequence. The Flutter Cut effect produces (by design) a chaotic and rapidly changing output.
The BCC Grid Wipe filter uses a cross hatched pattern which expands from a center point to progressively wipe the image off screen.
Lens Blur Dissolve
The BCC Lens Blur Dissolve is a 100% GPU accelerated replacement to or our original BCC Lens Transition filter. BCC Lens Blur Dissolve uses OpenCL to deliver greatly increased render performance with a streamlined interface. It applies a lens blur defocus/rack-focus style effect to the specular highlights of the outgoing and incoming image clips causing the highlights take on the shape of a simulated lens diaphragm.
This filter includes a pop-up that can be used to match different looks that can be achieved in the physical world based on the lens aperture setting – a pleasing optical result is referred to in photographic terms as Bokeh. Like all of the other filters that are included in the Transitions category, BCC Lens Blur Dissolve includes user controls for the velocity of the transition with an optional on-screen display of the ease-in and ease-out velocity curve.
Lens Distortion Wipe
The BCC Lens Distortion Wipe creates a transition between two layers where one layer is distorted as if viewed through a lens of changing size.
Lens Flare Dissolve
The BCC Lens Flare Dissolve creates a flare animation that automatically animates as your transition progresses to obscure the dissolve between clips. It includes a full set of lens flare 3D parameter options to allow maximum customization for the look of the dissolve.
Lens Flare Round
The BCC Lens Flare Round filter is a dissolve-style transition which creates a flare animation that automatically animates as your transition progresses to obscure the dissolve between clips. It offers a simplified subset of the full lens flare parameter set, oriented towards making softer looking elements.
Lens Flare Spiked
The BCC Lens Flare Spiked filter is a dissolve-style transition that creates a flare animation which automatically animates as your transition progresses to obscure the dissolve between clips. It offers a simplified subset of the full lens flare parameter set, oriented towards making a more star-shaped and spiked appearance.
The BCC Lens Flash filter creates a flare animation that automatically animates as your transition progresses to obscure the dissolve between clips. It offers a simplified subset of the full lens flare parameter set, oriented towards making a large bright flash as the transition progresses.
Light Leaks Dissolve
The BCC Light Leaks Dissolve filter creates a stylized pattern of bright lighting elements overlaid on the source footage which automatically animates in intensity as your transition progresses to obscure the underlying dissolve between clips. The lighting elements simulate the look of light leaking through the gaps in a camera and partially exposing the film/sensor.
The BCC Light Leaks Dissolve transition builds its pattern of leaks by layering up to four separate leak generators on top of each other with additional controls over the scaling, intensity, and apply mode of the combined leak elements.
The BCC Light Wipe filter uses a light source emanating from the edges of an expanding geometric shape to wipe away the layer. The generated light can be based on either a solid color or can be sampled from the source image to create more pronounced ray-like elements.
The BCC Linear Wipe is similar to a standard horizontal wipe, however, it offers a variety parameters for you to customize.
Multi Stretch Wipe
The BCC Multi Stretch Wipe is a radial wipe with three additional stretch controls named Taffy Stretch. The Taffy Stretch parameters create interesting distortions without signiﬁcantly impacting render times.
The BCC Radial Wipe produces a radial wipe transition, and contains many controls for unlimited creativity, including Inﬂuence controls and preset edge patterns. At the default value, this wipe is similar to a Circle wipe.
The BCC Rays Dissolve filter creates a stylized volumetric lighting effect that automatically animates as your transition progresses to obscure the underlying dissolve between clips.
The BCC Rectangular Wipe produces rectangular wipes using most of the controls from the BCC Radial Wipe ﬁlter. This ﬁlter, however does not include any pattern controls and at the default value, this wipe is similar to a Box wipe.
The BCC Ribbon Wipe transitions between two layers by animating parallel stripes or ribbons of transparency which progressively reveal the underlying layer as the thickness of the transparent stripes increases.
The BCC Rings Wipe creates a radial wipe effect made up of individual ring bands that expand outward from the center or inward from the edges.
The BCC Ripple Dissolve filter creates a rippling distortion similar to that generated by a raindrop or pebble falling onto a smooth pond. The distortion amount automatically animates as your transition progresses to obscure the underlying dissolve between clips.
The BCC Swish Pan filter enables you to create fast camera-pan style transitions between clips. The filter is fully automated in some NLE host environments, such as Avid or Apple, and also includes full manual override controls. Like all of the other filters that are included in the transition category of effects in BCC 10, the Swish Pan filter includes user controls for the velocity of the pan with on-screen display of the ease-in and ease-out curve.
The BCC Textured Wipe creates is a non-geometric wipe using the Inﬂuence layer and the Texture settings. By default, the Inﬂuence is generated from the luminance of the outgoing clip when you apply the wipe as a transition and by the filtered clip when you apply the wipe as a ﬁlter.
The BCC Tile Wipe creates a transition between two layers by dividing the footage into tiles and animating the scale and rotation of the individual tiles.
The BCC Tritone Dissolve filter creates a tint/tritone effect with optional levels/gamma adjustments that automatically animates up and down in intensity while the underlying dissolve progresses to complete the transition.
The BCC Twister filter transitions between images by simulating a tight twist in the image plane which animates along a chosen axis to progressively reveal the incoming layer on the newly exposed back side.
Vector Blur Dissolve
The BCC Vector Blur Dissolve filter creates a stylized vector blur that automatically animates as your transition progresses to obscure the dissolve between clips. A wide variety of looks ranging from wispy blurs to stylized painterly or melted blends can be achieved by varying the blur controls or by browsing through presets.
The BCC Vignette Wipe transitions between two layers by animating a softened elliptical/rectangular opacity vignette which progressively reveals the underlying layer as the size of the vignette changes.
Water Waves Dissolve
The BCC Water Waves Dissolve filter creates a rippling water-like distortion that automatically animates as your transition progresses to obscure the underlying dissolve between clips.
