Avid: Using the Updated Sapphire Builder
In this tutorial, Damien LeVeck of Skubalon Creative explains what’s new in the Sapphire Builder (2019.5) for Avid and then shows you how to create a cool stylized effect when working with footage that needs to fit a specific aspect ratio. He uses effects from the Distort, Blur & Sharpen, Adjust and Stylize units.
Sapphire plug-ins let you create stunning organic looks unmatched by any host native effect tools. Key features include over 270 effects and 3000+ presets, a powerful Effect and Transition Builder, and integrated tracking and masking with the Academy Award-winning Mocha. Sapphire’s superior image quality, control, and render speed offers massive time-savings — allowing creatives to focus on what matters most, delivering an impact that keeps audiences coming back.
Sapphire’s powerful Effect and Transition Builder can now preview video clips – new to 2019.5! The UI has also been updated with a modern new streamlined interface that supports 4K HPDI monitors.
Note: Sapphire Units are now only available as part of Sapphire
