Boris FX Sapphire 2019 for Avid features 200+ advanced and highly stylized effects, transitions, and looks and over 3000 presets for all aspects of your films and videos. Combining everything from the individual Sapphire 2019 Units, Sapphire 2019 provides large collections of Adjust, Blur and Sharpen, Distort, Lighting, Render, Stylize, and Transitions filters. Many of these are considered must-haves in the film, TV, and commercial production industries, with the Lighting effects perhaps the most widely relied on.
This Legacy Renewal bundle is valid for existing owners of Sapphire 10 or below for Avid.
The entire package is resolution-independent and can be used on footage in any format, including 8K and above. All effects also use full floating-point processing for improved image quality and full 32-bit HDR support.
Sapphire 2019 also integrates the Academy Award-winning Mocha planar tracking and masking engine right into the interface. You can now launch Mocha right from within most of the included effects and create and track a mask. Mocha offers multiple ways of applying masks, including simple isolation and full rotoscoping.
Sapphire 2019 for Avid Media Composer includes the sophisticated Sapphire Builder, which allows you to create and save your own complex custom effects using a simple workflow. The Builder is a node-based effect compositor where you can create from scratch, stack and connect other effects/transitions, and control every aspect of an effect using extensive parameter sets and numerous on-screen widgets. The Builder is filtered by common tasks, such as "color-correction" and "lighting," rather than by effect name, for much easier browsing.
There are multiple new features and enhancements in Sapphire 2019 such as LensFlare, FlareDesigner, Pixelsort, WhipLash transition, and Mocha enhancements such as four new spline tools, a new look and feel, and retina and high-DPI monitor support. Also improved are the Effect and Transition Builder and enhanced GPU speed.
