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.
