Boris Continuum Complete 7 for Sony Vegas Pro Feature Highlights
Professional Chroma Key Compositing
. BCC 7 for Vegas Pro facilitates the creation of precise keys with a minimal amount of adjustment. The chroma key filters allow editors to control background filtering or matting, edge softening and refinement, and light wrapping and reflections to produce seamless composites. â€¢
Automated Motion Tracking
. Powerful, specialized filters allow editors to recover motion data from a clip and then use the data to apply effects. For example, BCC Witness Protection allows editors to track a logo on a t-shirt and apply a blur to obscure the logo. Mosaic, tint, or brightness/contrast effects could also be applied to the specified area. â€¢
