Boris FX Releases Sapphire 2023 With Ultra Modern Effects
Boris FX Sapphire 2023, the updated Emmy Award-winning plugin suite is now available with host support for Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Autodesk Flame, Blackmagic Resolve, Foundry Nuke, and VEGAS Pro.
“Sapphire 2023 builds upon the popular Stylize category, which includes in-demand effects such as glitches, pixel sort, analog TV looks, and more,” says Boris Yamnitsky, president and founder of Boris FX. “The new S_PrismLens effect lends a heavenly, trippy style to music videos, travelogues, and social media projects, while S_UltraGrain is an invisible workhorse that helps compositors accurately match film stocks and modern camera noise to produce seamless results between different footage formats and CG elements.”
The S_PrismLens effect replicates shooting through a physical glass prism to create cinematic and dreamy looks. The effect includes three initial styles to start with: single, linear, and circular. Users have the option to modify lens shape, use built-in Mocha to track and isolate effects, and add finishing touches such as glows, lights, and chromatic aberrations. Includes 16 presets.
The S_UltraGrain effect is fast, flexible, and natural. Users tasked with compositing and effects work can instantly apply precise film and camera grain to footage. The effect features 79 presets based on Hollywood’s favorite film stocks as well as modern production cameras, including Arri Alexa, Red, Canon and Sony.
Sapphire’s most widely-used transition gets an update with S_DissolveUltraGlow. The transition adds enhanced features with an optical-based glow, highlight and atmospheric noise parameters, and 14 presets.
Sapphire is available as a collection of plugins with annual/monthly subscriptions, upgrade and support plans, and permanent licenses.
