Boris FX Adds New VFX And Transitions To Its Continuum 2023

Boris FX’s original flagship suite for video editors, VFX artists and content creators, Continuum 2023, now features more than 300 effects, over 40 transitions, and more than 5,000 drag-and-drop presets. Host applications include Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Blackmagic Resolve, FCP, Foundry Nuke and VEGAS Pro.

Boris Yamnitsky, president and founder of Boris FX, said: “It’s more important than ever to produce high-quality results quickly as content needs explode across film and TV, streaming, and social platforms. Continuum 2023 is here to help with hundreds of new professionally designed presets, ten new transitions, a new Atmospheric Glow effect, and more. Continuum 2023 also contains multiple under-the-hood updates that ensure that time-strapped users work at their most efficient. New onscreen controls significantly speed up effect customization, and a revamped Particle Illusion interface makes creating 3D particle animations easier than ever before.”

The BCC+Atmospheric Glow effect “delivers instant drama, mystery or nostalgia on otherwise flat scenes. The multi-faceted glow effect produces photoreal results and includes automatic flicker, lens textures, rays and smoke options.”

The Transitions Unit adds 10 wipes, rolls and swishes to give editors an expanded cutting toolkit. It includes BCC+FilmRoll, BCC+SwishPan, BCC+SwishPrism, BCC+SwishGlow, BCC+SwishWarp, BCC+LinearWipe, BCC+RadialWipe, BCC+RectangleWipe, BCC+VignetteWipe and BCC+TextureWipe.

Particle Illusion features “a significant performance boost with combined calculation and render speed increases of up to 50% depending on OS, hardware, and project specifics. An upgraded interface provides a simplified user experience with easy-to-understand property controls.”

Additional functionality includes improved 3D model handling.


Continuum’s BCC+FilmGlow effect adds a secondary glow option that enables users to generate multiple independent glows with full control over each element.

Title Studio adds support for Blackmagic Resolve on Mac and improved handling of missing fonts when moving titles and templates between platforms.

The BCC+Light effect, which includes over 800 presets, adds a seamless texture option with wrap and reflect properties.

BCC+ filters and transitions are GPU-accelerated on Apple M1, Intel, NVIDIA, and AMD graphics processors, and certain effects can see up to a 50% performance improvement over previous versions.

Continuum 2023 adds 250-plus presets to the plugin collection. The curated presets can be used as is or customized based on project needs.

Continuum is available as a collection of plugins with monthly/annual subscription options, upgrade and support plans, and permanent licenses. Customers on current subscriptions or upgrade and support plans receive Continuum 2023 as a free update.
