Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated effects technology for
video and film, announced that the Boris Continuum Chroma Key Unit
now includes a Chroma Key Studio filter for real-time previews and
rendering in Apple Final Cut Pro, Motion, and Final Cut Express.
Chroma Key Studio builds on the strength of Boris Continuum
Complete’s keying and compositing tools with features such as a
best-of-breed chroma key process, spill suppression, matte choker,
and a light wrap compositing step. All four tools are combined in
one, easy-to-use filter; users do not need to stack multiple filters
to pre and post process video.
In addition to Chroma Key Studio, the Boris Continuum Chroma Key Unit
includes the following filters for Adobe After Effects and Premiere
Pro in addition to Apple Pro Video Applications: * BCC Chroma Key for
compositing camera footage shot using a blue, green, or orange screen
as a backdrop over a new background video or a still image from a
separate file. The Chroma Key filter includes a variety of Spill
* BCC Matte Choker for tweaking the blur, choke, and softening along
the edges of a key.
* BCC Light Wrap to reflect the background image around the edges of
a foreground image to form a border. This creates a more convincing
composite by making it appear as if the images were shot in the same
* BCC Match Grain for sampling the grain from the background and
applying it to the foreground, generating the appearance that the
clips were shot on the same camera.
* BCC Color Match for sampling the highlight, midtone, and shadow
regions in the foreground and background images and blending some of
the background color and luma values into the foreground,
contributing to a seamless composite.
