New in BCC11


The BCC VR Blur filter emulates the look of shooting with soft focus or with a lens diffusion filter, generating out of focus effects. This filter was designed from the ground up to operate in VR 360 with multiple edge wrap modes to process pixels that reside along the edge of the 360 seam (non-VR aware filters will generate a hard line across the seam and will not create a convincing look.) The VR Blur filter includes independent controls for the amount of blur along the horizontal and vertical axis, making it easy to emulate fast camera pans.

On-screen control widgets are included in this filter, which makes it easy to set up the effect while maintaining visual focus on the image result in the viewer / comp window.

Presets and Common Controls

BCC filters come with a library of factory installed presets plus the ability to create your own custom presets and preview them  with the BCC FX Browser™.

BCC filters also include common controls that configure global effect preferences and other host-specific effect settings.

Compare Mode

 The BCC Compare Mode provides a convenient mechanism to compare the effect result with the original source layer. It provides several variations on basic split-screen views with the filtered clip placed next to the unedited original.
