NEXT GENERATION 3D TITLING AND ANIMATION

Continuum Title Studio is a next-gen 3D titling and animation plug-in. Easily create 2D/3D vector titling and motion graphics (including C4D and OBJ 3D model import) directly inside your preferred host.

Title Studio’s powerful accelerated 3D engine gives editors and artists the ability to quickly design and animate 2D/3D graphics with complete control over lights, cameras, materials, bevels, extrusions, and more. Includes a modern fully-customizable GUI and hundreds of factory-installed presets accessed via the integrated FX Browser.

New in 2020! Updates include new professionally-designed preset templates, new materials & shaders, and overall interface improvements to work faster.

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.

Title Studio can be purchased as part of Continuum, the 3D Objects Continuum Unit or as an individual Premium Filter.

What’s New

boris fx titler studio shadersImage Processing Shaders

Quickly add text treatments such as animated glows, blurs, and volumetric lighting to titles directly inside the application in real-time (GPU-accelerated). Shaders can also be applied at texture, shape or scene levels for even greater flexibility.

 

boris fx titler studio 3d materials3D Materials

Image processing shaders create new compelling materials previously not possible. New professionally-designed material presets can be found in the Materials Palette.

 

boris fx titler studio 8k resolution8K or higher resolution support

New preferences allow users to define max texture size and display the size of each layer of text in pixels.

 

boris fx titler studio grids and guidelinesGrids & Guidelines

Now includes a very useful grid and guides feature. The grid is totally user configurable via the new Grids Palette and users can elect to have objects in the scene snap to the grid or the guides or both.

boris fx titler studio text toolsOnscreen Text Tool & Text Box

Users can now select the text tool, click in the comp window and start typing, making the accurate placement and generation of titles faster and easier than ever before.

Text objects can now be repositioned and scaled with the click of a mouse using the new text box. Scale faster and more accurately.

boris fx titler studio preset libraryPreset Library

150 new professionally-designed presets using the new Image Processing Shaders have been added to get users up-and-running quickly. Simply drag & drop or customize and save your presets in the new library.

Features

Custom User Interface

Title Studio provides a custom UI window. To explain, this enables a vastly richer motion graphics toolset to achieve more than just the native host parameters. In addition to flexibility and power, Title Studio offers simple browsing, applying, and customizing pre-made animation presets/templates using the FX Browser. Find Title Studio in the 3D Objects category. Get100% GPU-accelerated, using an advanced OpenGL graphics engine for fast, accurate rendering. Includes native transfer controls in Avid.

True 3D Interaction

Indeed, the Title Studio interface makes true 3D interaction possible with multiple views and the ability to create unlimited graphics and titles inside of a single effect instance.

Cinema 4D Model Import

Get superior results and faster renders. Import Cinema 4D files directly into Title Studio for rendering and animation. Choose from a variety of stock models or create your own. Respects C4D subdivision, reflection, and material information. Supports model features including Symmetry, Array, and Spline Objects.

boris fx title studio scene mode2D/3D Scene Mode

The split 2D/3D scene modes allow objects to cast shadows in a true 3D environment.

3D Scene Mode: Objects in the path of a scene shadow light can cast 3D shadows onto other objects in the scene to create more photorealistic 3D graphics compositing. Objects render according to their position along the Z-axis regardless of track hierarchy.

2D Scene Mode: Objects render according to their track hierarchy. The objects closest to the top of the stack will render in front of objects lower in the stack.

boris fx title studio timeline buttonsTimeline Buttons

To summarize, a simplified customizable timeline includes the option to hide/show transformations and/or materials at the click of a button. Quickly go over tracks in deep composites.

The Uberkey function includes a visible button in the timeline. Users can switch the visible tracklisting to display only those tracks containing animated parameters. View and fine-tune keyframe animation easily.

boris fx title studio camera and light toolsCamera and Light Tools

Incorporate multiple cameras and lights into any scene with Title Studio’s easily configurable GUI. The expanded toolbar includes 2 buttons that provide a quick way to automatically switch the GUI to allow users to interact directly with 3D cameras and lights in a 3D viewer. Switch to the World View to display camera or light parameters in the Control Panel.

boris fx title studio unlockUnlock and Offset the Rotation and Scale Anchor Points of 3D Objects

Users have the option to offset the pivot point of any 2D or 3D objects from its source by rotating and scaling an object around independently positioned points or from the center/edge of the 3D object. Unlocking the pivot point gives editors and artists even more creative freedom when designing animated title graphics and lower thirds.

boris fx title studio motion pathMotion Path

The Motion Path filter allows users to animate the position of multiple objects along a user-defined spline-based motion path. Simply add Motion Path to a scene and draw an open or closed spline shape. All objects in the scene will automatically snap to the contour of the spline shape. Features controls to reposition and animate objects along with the path shape.

boris fx title studio trimmingTrack Trimming Controls in Timeline Window

Trim the start and end of any track by simply clicking and dragging directly in the timeline window. The click-and-drag method reduces the work involved in controlling the timing of animated graphic elements and makes it easier to see when objects are set to appear in a scene with a quick glance at the timeline.

 

boris fx title studio ui settingsDefault UI Settings

 

The industry standard for most motion graphics generators is to set parameter values to “Hold” before the first keyframe and after the last in the timeline. Title Studio’s “Hold Parameter Value” default does just that. The Record Button, which automatically sets new keyframes whenever a parameter value is changed by the user, now defaults to “off” — a helpful option that prevents accidental keyframe generation when making adjustments to objects in the scene.

boris fx title studio preset templatesPreset Animated and Static Preset Templates

Title Studio includes hundreds of brand new professionally-designed preset motion graphics templates. Animated and static templates can be viewed within the integrated FX Browser before adding any preset to the timeline. All presets are fully customizable. Easily create new presets, save into the preset library, and share with other members of the team using Continuum over a shared network.

 

 

 

boris fx title studio edgesHigh-quality Edges for 3D Objects

Finally, Title Studio’s 3D Objects offer a high-quality result with multiple anti-aliasing options for edges. Users can lower the level of anti-aliasing while setting up a complex 3D scene to provide a speed boost. Once ready, simply switch back for the final high-res render.

Title Studio Enhancements:

  • Procedural Noise texture generators which enable many new texture/bump map looks and also improved accuracy when importing C4D models. Procedural Noise texture generators can be added to an object by first changing the material track to any texture option (except color and flat color). In the texture channel track, change the track media to Procedural to access an array of texture noise options.
  • Multi-Texture options for combining multiple texture sources into a single hybrid texture and for improved accuracy when importing C4D models. A New Multi-Texture shader can be applied to your scene or objects by selecting Texture Composite from the Image Processors category in the Shaders Menu.
  • Improved C4D import including more accurate rendering and faster performance with complex models.
  • Match Z Position to Comp checkbox when working in After Effects, allows matching of AE’s 3D Z param interpretation in order to match other AE 3D controls.
  • UI Enhancements including switching to Inter UI font for TS UI on mac for better legibility across various resolutions
