Video editing software is most commonly packed with a fair number of effects and transitions, but no matter how much is packed inside, video editors are always clamoring for new tools to enhance their workflow. This is the reason why video editing software plugins are extremely popular.
For the most part, the popular video editing plugins are the ones that offer numerous options to video editors. Some video editing plugins only grant the video editor a few options based on the latest stylistic looks, but the video editing plugins that stand the test of time offer a library of visual effects (vfx) and are almost as common as the video editing programs they support.
When it comes to library-sized video editing plugins the one that stands out is Boris Continuum Complete.
Boris Continuum Complete 9
New to BCC 9 is the integrated FX Browser, allowing users to easily browse the entire BCC 9 library. There are 23 new transitions, in addition to the traditional favorites, for editors to choose from.
Video editors will find that BCC 9 runs faster than previous versions thanks to Open CL and CUDA Acceleration on supported graphics cards. New Stylize Group effects offer photorealistic, customizable grunge effects. GoPro users will be pleased with the BCC Lens Correction filter, to help correct fish-eye lens distortion.
In total there are more than 30 new filters, giving video editors the ability to create cinematic looks, fix faulty footage, composite captivating chromakey footage, and generate stylized motion graphics.
Boris Continuum Complete is compatible with Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer and Symphony, Black Magic Resolve, Sony Vegas Pro, Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5. Prices vary dependent on the host software, and whether the consumer chooses an upgrade, license, or rental of the suite.
