What's new in Continuum 2020:
New! Corner Pin Studio: Simplify screen inserts and more with built-in Mocha planar tracking and integrated color correction, light wrap, and drop shadow
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.
New! Reflection Effect: Quickly generate mirror surface reflections
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 Effect: Easily generate true 3D cast shadows with a built-in 3D camera and light system
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.
