BOSTON — Boris FX (www.borisfx.com), a developer of VFX and workflow solutions for film and video, and Imagineer Systems, the developer of Mocha Planar Tracking tools, are showcasing the newest versions of flagship products Boris Continuum Complete and Mocha Pro at this year’s SIGGRAPH show in Los Angeles.
“Following the recent merger, there has been great enthusiasm from our user-base to have Mocha’s powerful tracking and masking technology available directly within BCC plug-ins and to have BCC effects integrated inside Mocha Pro,” explains Ross Shain, chief marketing officer of Boris FX/Imagineer Systems. “At SIGGRAPH we will preview the work of our combined development teams, who are now sharing these technologies to introduce new workflows for visual effects, image restoration, and digital beauty work.”
Boris Continuum Complete 10 will be previewed at the show. BCC 10 is a comprehensive suite of plug-ins for editors, motion graphic designers, and finishing artists. The 200-plus filter collection includes 3D titling; image restoration tools; lens flares, glows, and lights; keys and mattes; warp and perspective effects; and cinematic effects. The upcoming release offers integrated Mocha tracking and masking technology, new 3D titling and animation tools, import of Maxon Cinema 4D models, new image restoration filters, new transitions, and added host support.
Mocha Pro 5 is the company’s award-winning planar tracking and roto-masking software. The upcoming release will add a new effects panel for integrated keying, grain, sharpening, and skin smoothing; new Python scripting support; and the ability to launch Mocha Pro as a plug-in from host applications such as Avid Media Composer and Adobe After Effects.
