You’ll work even more efficiently with Particle Illusion and Title Studio’s new functionality and updated interfaces. And tracking and masking takes seconds with the addition of an Area Brush tool to integrated Mocha.
NEW! CORNER PIN STUDIO
Corner pinning and compositing inserts just got a lot easier. Corner Pin Studio’s next-gen workflow makes replacing screens/billboards/devices a cinch with a single Mocha planar tracker that targets the surface and four offset pins to accurately position the source shot onto the target. Includes post-processing options for foreground color correction, edge chokes, drop shadow, light wrap, and 27 unique blend modes.
Need to add a reflection to an element or titles? The Reflection effect instantly generates a planar reflection using a filtered source image. Reflections can be easily tweaked with options for blurring, shimmering, scaling, repositioning, and independent animation. Includes a built-in animatable 3D camera system to fill the gap if your host application doesn’t offer native cameras. After Effects artists have the option to use AE’s native cameras.
NEW! CAST SHADOW
Throw a shadow onto your shot! The Cast Shadow effect generates true 3D shadows using an integrated point or parallel light source positioned in 3D space. Includes options to control the intensity, color, and length of a shadow blur, plus a ripple feature if you’re casting a shadow over water. Use the built-in animatable 3D camera system to reposition the source as needed. After Effects artists have the option to use AE’s native cameras and lights.
Curl is a warp effect that’s perfect for creating heat haze, underwater distortions, and smoky effects. Users can easily tweak the number, speed, and angle of curls. Includes the integrated Beat Reactor to make your effect bounce to music.
NEW TRANSITIONS FOR 2020
Continuum 2020 features 6 brand new drag and drop transitions for editors looking to spice up their sequences.
Curl Dissolve - Based on the new Curl effect, the Curl Dissolve transition adds a psychedelic look to projects. Simply drag-and-drop the dissolve in between clips, use one of the included presets, or customize.
Colorize Glow Dissolve - The Colorize Glow Dissolve transition pumps up projects with a slick stylized dose of color between shots. Easily control the color glow with the included gradient generator.
RGB Displacement Dissolve - The RBG Displacement Dissolve transition separates color channels then adds warp displacements. Perfect for music videos or highly-stylized looks.
RGB Blur Dissolve - The RGB Blur Dissolve transition gives editors even more options to play with the RBG color channels between two clips. Includes a master level blur control, separate horizontal and vertical scale controls, or individual blur level by color channel.
Kaleidoscope Dissolve - Remember how much fun you had using a kaleidoscope as a kid? You can now apply those geometric designs between clips! The Kaleidoscope Dissolve transition includes two independent tile controls that come with their own set of presets as well as an undistort option.
Prism Dissolve - The Prism Dissolve transition adds a subtle chromatic aberration with prismatic color separation that dissolves between clips.
MOCHA IMPROVEMENTS - NEW AREA BRUSH
