Features

What’s new:

PARTICLE ILLUSION

It’s back! Renowned Particle Illusion (formerly particleIllusion) gets a total overhaul in Continuum 2019. Redesigned from the ground up as a 64-bit application, Particle Illusion gives editors and artists access to an easy-to-use, powerful, high-end particle and motion graphics generator. Instantly create preset-driven photorealistic motion-tracked particle effects for titles, lower thirds, and background graphics.

  • New! Real-time GPU-based Particles Generation: A slick new interface makes generating motion graphics like sparkles, smoke, fireworks, and explosions simple, and alpha blending options make compositing elements into live-action sequences a cinch.
  • New! Standalone Option: Particle Illusion can be run as a standalone application, but rendering is only available as a plug-in. Artists and Editors can use the standalone to create and save a preset effect outside a host application and then can render that saved effect from inside a host timeline.
  • New! Revamped Emitter Library: The Emitter library now includes a handy search function and has been rewritten, allowing users to access an unlimited number of emitters without needing to reload libraries.

MOCHA ESSENTIALS WITH NEW TRACKING TOOLS

Users already know and love the Academy Award-winning Mocha planar tracking tools integrated directly inside Continuum. The Continuum 2019 release provides some major updates. Say yes to faster effects masking and rotoscoping.

  • New! Mocha Essentials Workspace: Editors and artists will love the simplified, clean interface that focuses on only the most essential icons and tools. Master tracking quicker.
  • New! Spline Tools: 4 new spline tools make masking and roto work even more simple. Includes a new magnetic spline tool with edge-snapping, a freehand tool, and geometric shapes like ellipse and rectangle.
  • New! Parameter-driven Tracking: Position point parameters in Continuum filters can now be driven directly by Mocha. Track filters like Lens Flare 3D, Rays, and Spotlights.

TITLE STUDIO UPDATES

Title Studio is a next-gen 2D/3D titling plug-in that can be used as a custom interface plug-in or standalone application. Easily create high-quality professional 2D or 3D titles with custom bevels, fills and styles; import 3D models from Maxon C4D or Adobe Illustrator EPS files; and add OpenGL-accelerated features like 3D extrusions, materials, cameras, lights, and deformers.

  • New! Image Processing Shaders: Quickly add text treatments such as animated glows, blurs, and volumetric lighting to titles directly inside the application in real-time (GPU-accelerated). Shaders can also be applied at texture, shape or scene levels for even greater flexibility.
  • New! 3D Materials: Image processing shaders create new compelling materials previously not possible. New professionally-designed material presets can be found in the Materials Palette.
  • New! 8K or higher resolution support: New preferences allow users to define max texture size and display the size of each layer of text in pixels.
  • New! Grids & Guidelines: Now includes a very useful grid and guides feature. The grid is totally user configurable via the new Grids Palette and users can elect to have objects in the scene snap to the grid or the guides or both.
  • New! Onscreen Text Tool: Users can now select the text tool, click in the comp window and start typing, making the accurate placement and generation of titles faster and easier than ever before.
  • New! Onscreen Text Box: Text objects can now be repositioned and scaled with the click of a mouse. Scale faster and more accurately.
  • New! Preset Library: 150 new professionally-designed presets using the new Image Processing Shaders have been added to get users up-and-running quickly. Simply drag & drop or customize and save your presets in the new library.

New! Faster playback: Playback within the Title Studio UI now supports 8K or higher resolutions

OVERALL IMPROVEMENTS

  • Avid Effects Simplified: The introduction of Mocha-based parameter tracking renders most non-real time blue dot filters unnecessary. Non-real time filters have been moved into an obsolete folder to support the older legacy Continuum tracker.
  • External Broadcast Monitor Support: Applications like Title Studio and Particle Illusion now support external broadcast monitors. Currently only available for Blackmagic Design, AJA coming soon.
  • Deep Color 32-bit Support in Premiere Pro: The 32-bit float color processing option in Continuum, which has always been available in hosts such as After Effects, has been extended to include the Premiere Pro host with deep color support enabling users to generate HDR content without clipping.

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.

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:

  • Integrated Academy Award-winning Mocha masking and planar tracking system
  • Beauty Studio: all-in-one digital makeup filter
  • Broadcast Safe: legalize your content for any broadcast standard
  • Flicker Fixer: drag and drop flicker removal
  • Lens Correction: wide-angle lens normalizer

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 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:

  • New! Title Studio: Adds image-processing shaders such as blurs, glows, and rays directly inside the interface for visually stunning results, plus 150+ new professionally designed-presets
  • 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.
