Hollywood Style Film Effects and Looks
Make your video look like film! The Boris Continuum Film Style Unit includes Boris Continuum Complete's Film Glow, Film Process, Film Damage, Match Grain, Film Grain, Deinterlace, and DeGrain filters. Film Process deepens the color response range of a digital image to emulate film's dynamic color range. Film Damage simulates the appearance of old film stock. Match Grain adds grain to footage shot on video so it edits more seamlessly into a sequence with telecined media. Film Grain simulates the appearance of grain particles in the emulsion of movie or photo film. Deinterlace converters interlaced video clips into progressive-scan frames, such as footage shot on film.
Supports Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, and Sony Vegas Pro on Windows and Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro, and Apple Motion on MAC.
The Film Style Unit includes the following BCC filters:
Create the soft feel of exposed film with this powerful yet very easy-to-use effect. Make your highlights bloom and shadows spread out as you experiment with your own unique looks. Or try one of the professionally-designed presets included with the filter. Use BCC Film Glow to marry two clips shot on different cameras or set the mood for the entire project. It works great on text and logos, too!
The Film Process plug-in can help "filmize" digital video by deepening the color response range of the digital image to emulate film's dynamic color range. It can also be used to color grade and mimic an infinite variety of analog lens filters, optical processes, and special effects. This capability allows for a broader aesthetic and creative palette that filmed imagery offers - but without the higher cost of 35mm film production.
Film Damage simulates the appearance of old film stock. You can add scratches, grain particles, hair or fibers, and dirt, dust, or water spots. You can also simulate camera shake or a flickering image.
Match Grain takes a snapshot of telecined media and generates a grain signature which can be used as a matching grain sample for a destination clip containing little or no grain. A common application of this filter is adding grain to computer-generated imagery to lend to a more realistic composite. Match Grain can also be used to grain footage shot on video so it edits more seamlessly into a sequence with telecined media.
The Film Grain plug-in creates an auto-animated noise effect designed to simulate the appearance of grain particles in the emulsion of movie or photo film.
The Deinterlace plug-in converts interlaced video clips into progressive-scan frames, such as footage shot on film. Deinterlace can render "simulated TeleCine" style by adding pulldown. This filter can also convert 29.97fps NTSC video into 24fps film-style frames.
All filters included with Boris Continuum Film Style Unit are also included in Boris Continuum Complete collection.
Supported Graphics Cards
Many Boris Continuum Complete filters harness the unmatched processing power of modern GPU engines to create stunning visual effects. Almost any graphics card released during the past three years will provide the features necessary to run OpenGL-accelerated Boris Continuum Complete filters. Below is a partial list of graphics cards we have tested in our labs. However, newer versions of these NVIDIA and ATI cards will also be suitable for use with Boris Continuum Complete.
- NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500, 1700, 1800, 3450, 3500, 3700, 3800, 4500, 4600, 5500, 5600
- NVIDIA Quadro 2000, 4000, 5000
- NVIDIA GeForce 6800, 7800, 7900, 7950, 8600, 8800
- ATI FireGL V3300 and up, V5200 and up, V7200 and up, V8600 and up
- ATI Radeon x1900, x1950
We recommend that you run the latest graphics card driver version supported by your host application.
In addition, for HD editing, we suggest a graphics card with a minimum of 512MB of RAM; 1GB of RAM would be recommended.
