Effects

BCC Extruded Text

The BCC Extruded Text filter generates true 3D text objects with separate control options for each of the 4 sides of the extruded object.

 

BCC Extruded EPS

The BCC Extruded EPS filter enables you to import, extrude and animate 2D vector artwork using either the native Adobe Illustrator .ai or .eps format.

 

BCC Type-On Text

The BCC Type-On Text filter enables you to generate true 3D type-on text animations. It works with full automation for the type-on / type-off effect. In addition, get manual override controls for the animation timing.

 

BCC Extruded Spline

The BCC Extruded Spline filter generates true 3D primitive shape objects with separate control options for each of the 4 sides of the extruded object.

 

BCC Layer Deformer

The BCC Layer Deformer allows you to transform, warp and deform any image clip or layer into 3D primitive shapes. Animate these shapes in 3D space with full automation and manual override over the 3D animation.

 

Title Studio

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 supports a custom UI to enable a vastly richer motion graphics toolset than can be achieved with just native host parameters. Yet, in addition to that flexibility and power, it offers very simple browsing, applying, and customizing pre-made animation presets/templates using the FX Browser.

Title Studio is located in the 3D Objects category and is 100% GPU accelerated using an advanced OpenGL graphics engine for fast, accurate rendering.


What’s new in Title Studio

New Improvements

Maxon C4D 3D model integration with Title Studio continues it’s road of improvement and now includes more shaders and materials than ever before. The C4D 3D model support and rendering in Title Studio has been independently reviewed as having the best and most accurate render results of any 3D model plug-in for NLE and compositing systems.

New Texture Composite and Procedural Noise Shaders

With the new Texture Composite shader, you can add and blend material textures directly onto scene elements nested in 3D scene containers or to individual objects within a scene container. Source options for the texture composite shader include gradients, still images, EPS files, text elements, video clips and procedurally generated noise maps. The shader includes 15 independent blending modes including Add, Screen, Overlay, Multiply etc.

The newly added Procedural Noise shader, which is included as an option in the Texture Composite shader includes a dozen different noise generators, each with its own set of customizable and animatable parameters.

Customized textures can be saved as new material assets in your Title Studio custom library for easy and quick retrieval in any Title Studio project.

New C4D 3D Models

We’ve added 15 brand new professionally generated 3D models that were created using Cinema 4D and developed specifically for this version update of Title Studio. Included in this new batch are spherical elements and a series of backdrops, some with curved arc surfaces, some with a lo-poly terrain surface distortions.

The new C4D 3D models can be downloaded here.
