Everyday VFX in Avid Media Composer with Boris Continuum Complete

Everyday VFX in Avid Media Composer with Boris Continuum Complete

May 7, 2013

Steve Holyhead’s engaging presentation shed light on three everyday VFX problems, Pan & Zoom, Beauty Pass, and Transitions, which he solves using an array of filters from the BCC 8 AVX package.

Highlights included: a Ken Burns style pan & zoom with no key framing needed (!); a 1-2-3 step approach (BCC Smooth Tone, BCC Film Glow & BCC Film Grain) to giving your talent that Hollywood glow; and the power of BCC transitions – quick, easy, and versatile.

Plus, get a sneak peak of the soon-to-be released BCC v8.2 AVX with up to 100% improvement in render time, the additions of lots more “green dot” effects, and enhanced real-time performance.
