Boris FX Announces New Boris Continuum Unit: Morph

Publish date:

Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated effects technology for video and film, today announced that a new Boris Continuum Unit, Morph, is now available. The Boris Continuum Morph Unit allows Adobe After Effects artists to generate real-time static or animated image warps, animated image morphs between a pair of still images, and animated video morphs from video clips.

Boris Continuum Complete 7 AE Filters Included with the Boris Continuum Morph Unit


BCC Warp

. This OpenGL hardware-accelerated filter generates real-time static or animated image warps. The filter uses pairs of open or closed Adobe After Effects native spline mask shapes to interactively warp an image between the spline-shape points. A closed spline shape mask can be used to contain the image warp to a specific region in the image. The hardware acceleration built into the filter means real-time rendering, both on-screen for previews and off-screen for client delivery. •

BCC Morph

. This OpenGL hardware-accelerated filter creates animated image morphs between a pair of still images. With the aid of a few Adobe After Effects native spline mask shapes, this sophisticated filter automatically aligns features in the image making every frame in the morph a usable image result. •

BCC Video Morph

. The OpenGL hardware-accelerated filter uses open or closed Adobe After Effects native spline mask shapes to aid in generating believable image morphs between a pair of video clips. Advanced optical flow technology creates a seamless transition between the clip pairs. Built-in global warp and blend features automate the morph process or control the image warp and blend on a per spline basis. The Boris Continuum Morph Unit is immediately available for an MSRP of $199 USD. Morph supports Adobe After Effects CS5, CS4, and CS3 under 64-bit and 32-bit operating systems. Customers who purchase the Boris Continuum Morph Unit or any other Boris Continuum Unit may credit the price of the Unit towards the full Boris Continuum Complete plug-in suite.
