FEATURES

MOCHA TRACKING & MASKING

The Academy Award-winning Mocha planar tracking and masking application is integrated inside almost every single filter in Continuum! This empowers editors to do more advanced finishing work right within the filter without having to leave editing project timelines.

Mocha can be used to generate user-defined closed spline shapes, which can be tracked individually or as a group using the Mocha planar tracker. These static or animated mask shapes can then be used to isolate the result of any filter to a specific region in the source shot (e.g., isolating a blur to someones face). The Mocha tracker can also be used to drive other filter parameters, such as screen / billboard replacement, face tracking, etc.

Fun Fact : Mask and tracking data from any Mocha session can be exported and used in any other Mocha session. This includes sharing tracking mask and tracking data from Mocha Pro and the integrated Mocha in Continuum, or even, Sapphire.


IMAGE RESTORATION TOOLS

Fix footage fast. Image Restoration is the powerful, must-have tool set that saves less-than-ideal footage. Be a problem-solving hero. Features include:

  • NEW! Broadcast Safe: legalize your content for any broadcast standard
  • Integrated Academy Award-winning Mocha masking and planar tracking system
  • Beauty Studio: all-in-one digital makeup filter
  • PixelFixer: dead pixel replacement
  • Reframer: vertical video in horizontal frame solution
  • Remover: pixel cloning tool with automatic infill option
  • Flicker Fixer: drag and drop flicker removal
  • Lens Correction: wide-angle lens normalizer
  • Magic Sharp: multi-stage image sharpening
  • UpRez: up-converter with integrated post processing tools

Fun fact: The Academy Award-winning doc O.J.: Made in America, which weaved together footage from tons of different sources, relied heavily on Continuum’s Image Restoration tools to keep the audience focused on the captivating story.


TRANSITIONS

Cut. Add a slick transition. Repeat. Set the pace and tone of your edit sequence without keyframes!

Transitions in Continuum are a major time-saver for anyone facing constant deadlines. Continuum 11 includes almost 40 drag & drop auto-animating transitions with over 500 professionally designed factory installed presets. Every transition filter in Continuum also includes sophisticated yet easy to use HUD style on-screen controls, which can be used to make quick adjustments to the timing of the animation and the look of the transition effect.

Popular transitions and dissolves include Swish Pan, Flutter Cut, Fast Film Glow, Light Leaks, Lens Blur and Damaged TV.


3D OBJECTS

Why use Continuum to create broadcast-ready titles, lower thirds, and motion graphics?

Because you can create them at any resolution and in any dimension with ease!

3D Objects features include:

  • 2D and 3D generated text and graphics remain razor sharp regardless of the project size. They can be warped, deformed and shattered using state of the art vertex and pixel shader technology.
  • Apply material shaders to any individual side of a 3D object.
  • Import 3D models retaining the original colors or change the colors using the included material shaders.
  • Import and extrude Adobe Illustrator and Adobe EPS vector art.
  • Import RTF text files retaining the original text style information or adjust it globally or on a per character level.

The filters in the Continuum 3D Objects category are hardware accelerated on both Nvidia and ATI video cards.
