Boris FX Announces Boris Continuum Complete 9


LR-BCC9-emailLR-BCC9Boston-based VFX software developer Boris FX announced that it will release its new Boris Continuum Complete 9 this spring. The software is a package of visual effects for NLE and compositing platforms on Windows and Mac OS. Version 9 adds over 30 new filters and transitions in key areas such as Image Restoration, Film, Stylize, Keying and Compositing, Lights and Perspective. All BCC effects and presets can now be viewed in the new FX Browser window, which is integrated into every BCC filter or transition.

“Tools to create grungy, organic looks have been sorely missing in Adobe After Effects. The new BCC Grunge effect includes everything I need to create a ‘beautiful mess’ in my broadcast graphics projects,” said John Dickinson of MotionWorks.

Boris Continuum Complete gives editors and visual artists a collection of over 200 filters, including 3D Objects, 3D particle effects, image restoration tools, lens flares and lights, keys and mattes, warp and perspective effects, and blurs, glows and cinematic effects. All filters take advantage of either Open CL, NVIDIA CUDA, multi-threading or OpenGL hardware acceleration for an interactive effects design experience.

Over 1,000 professionally designed presets are included free with every installation of BCC. All presets can be viewed in the new FX Browser window. Custom presets can be saved and shared among teams within the same organization or across the globe. Both static and animated BCC presets are supported in After Effects and Avid platforms.

“During BCC 9 development, our team was tasked with creating the best effects browser,” said Boris Yamnitsky, founder and CEO of Boris FX. “The FX Browser is capable of not only previewing presets of the current filter, but also across the entire library, saving customers many frustrating trial and error steps. It shows the effects in full motion over video from the host timeline.”

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
