Boris FX has announced that a new Boris Continuum Unit, Motion
Tracker, is now available. The Boris Continuum Motion Tracker Unit
includes the Corner Pin, Match Move, Wire Remover, and Witness
Protection filters from Boris Continuum Complete 6.
BCC Corner Pin allows editors to map media to a specific area on a
moving object in a media file. For example, if a media file includes
a moving bus with an advertisement on its side, an editor could use
Corner Pin to track and replace the advertisement with a logo.
BCC Match Move locks the movement of one image clip to another image
clip. It includes full DVE functions such as tumble, spin, and rotate
along with interesting lighting and light wrap compositing features.
BCC Wire Remover removes wires and unwanted objects from still or
moving images by either cloning or blending pixels together from
BCC Witness Protection allows editors to track the motion of an
object in a media file. Editors can then use the motion path data to
control another aspect of the effect. For example, an editor can
track a logo on a t-shirt and use a blur to obscure the logo. Mosaic,
tint, or brightness/contrast effects could also be applied to the
Boris Continuum Motion Tracker supports Apple Final Cut Pro, Apple
Final Cut Express, Apple Motion, and Adobe After Effects. Apple’s new
Final Cut Studio 3 release is supported.

Boris FX worldwide reseller channel and direct from the Boris FX web
site at http://www.borisfx.com for a manufacturer’s suggested retail
price of US$199. Customers who purchase the Boris Continuum Motion
Tracker Unit or any other Boris Continuum Unit may credit the price
