This video provides an overview of the Boris plugin set and how it varies across software packages.
- [Instructor] Boris Continuum is an extensive effects plugin tool set available on a wide array of host applications. You can use a set with Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premier Pro, Avid Media Composer, Da Vinci Resolve, Vegas Pro and the Foundry Nuke among others. The set includes tools for generating 3D text, time and image warping, color correction and color grading, lens flares and relighting, chroma key work and motion tracking. I'll demonstrate these tools in After Effects.
However, I'll start with Adobe Premiere Pro to show how the plugins may have a slight difference across programs. So let me switch to Premiere. Here I am in Premiere 2018. I have a demo project 0_2 open. If you have the Boris FX, they appear in the effects list. I can expand video effects and here's all the Boris Continuum 12 effects plugins. These are organized in folders. For example, here's blur. And once we apply the effect, I can simply click drag it onto the footage bar.
So here I'm going to drag fast lens blur and let it go over this ocean footage and there's the blur. Now the application varies a little bit in other programs and in fact we'll be using After Effects mostly in this series. I should mention that Boris Continuum 12 features several significant changes over version 11. The changes include the integration of particle illusion which used to be a separate plugin. The update of Title Studio, a new interface for the mocha parameter tracker, reoganization of tracking functions and a new application manager.
We'll also cover the Primate Studio here in advance Chroma Keywork.
