The Continuum plug-in collection has been updated -- the Motion Graphics Generator Particle Illusion, which was bought from GenArts a few years ago, has been completely reworked. With the plugin you can spice up animations with smoke, sparks and similar effects, now GPU-accelerated and with a new user interface. There are also new presets and a revamped particle emitter library with search function.
In Title Studio, glows, rays and blurs can now be added in real time via new image-processing shaders. New image grids and guidelines have also been added for a more precise text layout. The titler should render much faster and support resolutions up to 8K.
Since Mocha has been part of BorisFX for some time now, it is (as was to be expected) becoming more and more integrated with the other plugins. Mocha Tracking can now also be used within Lens Flare 3D, Spotlights and Particle Illusion. The new Mocha Essentials Interface can also be found in Continuum with its new spline tools including magnetic edge-snapping.
A hasty overview of the innovations in video form:
Continuum 2019 (from now on also here an annual version naming instead of version 12) is offered as an annual subscription or as an unlimited license for all major editing solutions, i.e. for Adobe After Effects CC and Premiere Pro CC, the Avid Media Composer and via OFX also for Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, Magix VEGAS Pro and others. For Apple FCP X the new 2019 Continuum version is apparently not yet available, only v11. Available are both multi-host options (in permanent license incl. Avid for 1995 dollars, 695 dollars annually, without Avid 1295 or 395 dollars) and versions only for single program hosts with varying pricing yes by host (permanent license for OFX 695 dollars, for Adobe 995 dollars, for Avid 1695 dollars).
