The Swiss Army Knife of Plug-ins

A plug-in collection for Adobe, Apple, Avid and OFX host applications, Continuum features range from Image Restoration, to Extruded Text, titling and 3D Objects, to Chromakey and Compositing, Particles, and Image Stabilization. Continuum serves NLE editors and Compositors alike with the newly integrated Masking and Planar Tracking Pixel Chooser powered by Academy Award-winning Mocha technology.


Highlights

The plan includes 1-Year of upgrades and support.

New in Continuum 11:

  • Primatte Studio: Academy Award-nominated chroma key tech
  • VR Unit: 5 powerful filters for 360/VR editing tasks
  • Broadcast Safe: Instantly pass broadcast safe standards
  • Title Studio: Adds 3D render options including depth-of-field
  • Many more presets & templates

What's New

Primatte Studio

Easily chroma key and composite using the same Academy Award-nominated compositing tech (Phototron’s Primatte) as major blockbusters like the Lord of the Rings series, Harry Potter films, and Spider-Man. The new Primatte Studio is the ultimate blue/green screen toolset. Exclusive features include:

  • Automatic green/blue screen analysis
  • Manual transparency tuning
  • Adjust lighting to correct unevenly lit screens
  • Foreground object detection to deliver a perfect key with a single color sample
  • Integrated Academy Award-winning Mocha masking and planar tracking system

 

VR Unit

Editing and finishing immersive 360 video is a time consuming task. The VR Unit gives editors five new 360 optimized filters to speed up post workflows. Work inside your host timeline while avoiding the seams inherent to regular non-VR filters. Supports 180, 360, mono, and stereoscopic! Based on Mocha VR’s award-winning 360/VR tech.

The new filters are: VR Reorient, VR Insert, VR Blur, VR Sharpen and VR Flicker Fixer.

Serious about 360 post? The VR Unit is currently shipping free with all new Mocha VR purchases.

 

Broadcast Safe

Tired of your projects failing broadcast safe standards? The new Broadcast Safe filter is the one click-solution you’ve been looking for. Simply choose the desired standard option and the filter automatically produces the final picture-perfect result — guaranteed.

 

Title Studio Updates

New improvements to Title Studio include a 3D render engine for realistic 3D cast shadows and depth-of-field, a spline-based motion path for animating multiple objects on one path, faster performance, a simplified user interface, and many more presets/templates.

Title Studio is a next-gen 2D/3D titling plug-in. Features include:

  • Create stylized 2D or 3D titles with custom bevels, fills and styles.
  • OpenGL-accelerated features include 3D extrusions, materials, cameras, lights, and deformers
  • Import 3D models from Maxon C4D or Adobe Illustrator EPS files.
  • Includes a custom interface plug-in and stand-alone application.

FEATURES

MOCHA TRACKING & MASKING

The Academy Award-winning Mocha planar tracking and masking engine is integrated inside Continuum allowing editors to do more advanced finishing work without leaving project timelines.
