Boris FX Releases Continuum 2021.5 with True 3D Particle Animations

The mid-year update adds significant 3D motion design tools to Particle Illusion, 9 new cinematic effects, and over new 200 presets.

Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A — June 23, 2021 — Boris FX Continuum builds upon the biggest release in the plugin’s history with its mid-year update. Continuum 2021.5 delivers more robust Particle Illusion controls with fully 3D functionality, speedy new creative effects, and new must-have workflows to Adobe and Avid users.

“Continuum’s product team is constantly looking for ways to improve upon each release and provide our subscription and upgrade & support members with greater value throughout the year,” says Boris Yamnitsky, Boris FX President and Founder. “The 2021.5 update brings together many new user-requested features with new visual effects to give artists endless creative opportunities. Editors, VFX artists, and motion designers will love the new easy-to-use, time-saving tools.”

Particle Illusion

“Particle Illusion’s new Node View makes parameter navigation super easy, which is especially useful when working with complex emitter setups or some of the splashy new 3D Emitter presets,” states Ra-Ey Saleh, unscripted TV editor and colorist (Discovery, TLC, Animal Planet, History, National Geographic). “You’ll wonder how you ever worked without it — and it just looks so cool!”

“Continuum is the go-to toolkit for everything an Avid editor needs to get their jobs done. Whether it’s creative effects or tools to fix issues, I always say Continuum has an effect for that,” says Kevin P. McAuliffe, senior editor, and popular Avid trainer. “The 2021.5 release not only adds more in-camera effects to its Cinematographer Toolkit (BCC+ effects) but also includes excellent new under the hood integration with Avid. We can now use Continuum’s Apply to Title Matte Option in Avid with any of the BCC+ effects, which opens up tons of new fun stylized options when working on titles and lower thirds.”

Continuum 2021.5 Highlights:

  • New! Particle Illusion features
    • Node View: Select any particle node in the tree and corresponding parameters instantly display in the control panel
    • 3D Emitter Shapes, Forces, Deflectors, and Emission: From flat 2D to true 3D
    • Deep Integration with After Effects: Emitters can trace AE native live text and mask layers and emitters can attach to host native lights and 3D layers
    • Emitter Presets: Stunning drag and drop presets added to the included Emitter Library
  • New! 9 GPU-accelerated, HDR-compliant cinematic effects: BCC+Multi-Star, BCC+Vignette, BCC+FilmGrunge, BCC+TwoStrip, BCC+Flashing, BCC+Composite, BCC+F-Stop, BCC+Fluorescent, and BCC+Haze; includes over 200 drag and drop presets
  • New! Avid infrastructure controls added to all BCC+ filters: Apply to Title Matte Option, Safe Levels Option, and True Bypass Switch
