Boris FX Sapphire Lighting Unit overview

  • 1Description

Boris Sapphire 11 Lighting Unit enables you to simulate natural and synthetic lights. The Lighting Unit is a multi-host plug-in compatible with After Effects, Premiere, Media Composer, and several OFX applications. It can be used in all host applications at the same time as long as they are on the same computer.

Version 11 adds an integrated Mocha planar tracking and masking feature, which can be launched right from most of the included effects to create and track a mask. This tool offers multiple ways of applying masks, including simple isolation and full rotoscoping.

Note: This upgrade is valid for existing owners of Sapphire 10 Lighting Unit, the previous version.

Effects

Glow
Generate natural, organic light from the brighter areas of your video.
GlowDarks
Areas of the source clip darker than the given threshold are blurred and combined with the input clip to give a deep smoky look.
ZGlow
Glows areas of the source clip with varying widths depending on the depth values from a ZBuffer input.
EdgeRays
Generate high-quality beams of light that emit from the edges of objects within your video footage.
LensFlare
Generate photorealistic and stylized lens flares or build your own custom flare.
LightLeak
Render sheer, abstract patterns of color that simulate light leaking through gaps in a camera body.
Flashbulbs
Simulates lots of flashbulbs going off, like a stadium scene with many small flashes or celebrity red carpet with a few large flashes.
Rays
Generate high-quality beams of light that emit from the brightest parts of your footage.
Glare
Composite halos and glint rays into your video by detecting the brightest areas of the frame.
Glint
Generate star-shaped glimmers in brighter areas of your video.
EmbossDistort
Emboss or concave your video by using a custom relief map. Create large, bold, bumpy distortions or thin, glassy indentations.
EmbossGlass
Emboss or concave your video using a custom relief map while adding a vibrant chroma distortion.
EmbossShiny
Emboss or concave your video using a custom relief map while adding lighting effects to bring out highlights, reflections, and shadows.
SpotLight
Highlight a specific area of your footage with a range of harsh and soft spotlights.
BokehLights
Generates random, defocused lights that move around the screen.
GlowRings
Generates glows of colored rings around the areas of the source clip that are brighter than the given threshold.
GlowRainbow
Generates rainbow-colored glows based on the distances from the edges of the source input.
GlowEdges
Creates glowing light from the edges of the source clip. This differs from the default Glow in that small or thin objects generate as much glow around their edges as large objects. Also, the glow colors are not affected by the colors of the source clip.
Streaks
Creates motion blurs in the bright areas of the source causing streaks between the From and To transformations. This can be used to create an extended film exposure effect or simulate soft beams of light.
GlowOrthicon
Darkens the source clip at areas that are brighter than the given threshold to give an 'orthicon' or 'dark glow' look.
GlowDist
Generates glows based on the distances from the edges of the source input. Any edges in the input image where the brightness crosses the given threshold value will generate an equally bright glow into the darker side of the edges.
GlintRainbow
Generates star-shaped, rainbow-colored glints at locations where the source clip is brighter than the threshold.
GlowNoise
Generates glowing light from areas of the source clip that are brighter than the given threshold. The glows are also attenuated by a solid noise texture to give them a noisy or grainy effect.
