Boris FX Motion Tracker
Boris FX has released its latest Final Cut plug-in package, Motion Tracker. The tools are geared for video editing effects involving movement. The included Corner Pin module allows users to add graphics and pin them to moving objects in the video. Match Move works in a similar manner by locking onto movement, while adding the ability to integrate a second image clip.
The package also features the Wire Remover tool for eliminating unwanted objects from still or moving images. The plug-in clones or blends pixels together from surrounding areas. Boris also includes its Witness Protection filter that allows editors to track the motion of a subject and edit the specified area in a variety of ways. Potential applications include obscuring logos on t-shirts and adding tint or mosaic effects to subject's face.
Boris Continuum Motion Tracker supports Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express, Motion, After Effects and the newest release of Final Cut Studio. The package is available from the Boris FX online store for $200.
