Fast and Easy Witness Protection and Billboard Sign Replacement
Boris Continuum Match Move Unit includes three powerful, specialized filters that enable you to recover motion data from a clip - without resorting to a separate application - and then use that data in creative and interesting ways. For example, with the Corner Pin effect, editors can track a moving bus with an advertisement on its side, and replace the ad with one they create. The Match Move effect can track the movement of one image clip to another - for example, a crane-up shot matched to that of a locked down camera. And Witness Protection allows you to track the motion of an object in a media file. You see this effect in TV shows such as "America's Most Wanted" where potential witnesses or minors have their faces blurred. These powerful, drag-and-drop effects allow you to work from the comfort of your native host application. Match Move Unit includes the following BCC filters:
Corner Pin allows you to map media to a specific area on a moving object in a media file. For example, if your media includes a moving bus with an advertisement on its side, you could use Corner Pin to track and replace the advertisement with a logo.
Match Move locks the movement of one image clip to another image clip. One of the great advantages of using the Match Move filter is that it includes full DVE functions such as tumble, spin, and rotate along with interesting lighting and light wrap compositing features.
Witness Protection allows you to track the motion of an object in a media file. You can then use the motion path data to control another aspect of the effect. For example, you can track a logo on a t-shirt and use a blur to obscure the logo. You could also apply a mosaic, tint, or brightness/contrast effect to the specified area.
Match Move offers invaluable post-production tools to Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro, and Motion editors.
