Enhance the lighting and mood of your scene with the Continuum Stage Light Premium Filter from Boris FX. This filter allows you to add custom lighting effects to your project and it integrates seamlessly with Adobe After Effects.

Stage Light features a realistic smoke and fog generator with auto-animation, built-in 3D camera and lighting systems, multiple light render modes and models, individual control for each light, light targeting, an integrated beat reactor to match to a music beat, and multiple factory-installed presets with the option to create custom presets. Read more below about the features included in this filter.

Adobe After Effects Integration

Stage Light can read an unlimited number of After Effects native points and spotlights in the composition, includes a built-in mechanism that lets users selectively determine which lights to use in the scene via a simple naming convention, and can also use AE's native 3D cameras. If you're working in multiple AE views, the visible light is correctly rendered in each view regardless of whether the lights are viewing the render camera or a non-production orthogonal view.

Built-In 3D Camera System

Use the convenient built-in 3D camera system to orbit around the scene. The integrated camera can be set to target a user-defined point in XYZ space allowing you to pivot the camera like a reverse tripod—especially useful when the camera model is set to orbit mode. Also includes pan and advanced mode options.

Built-In 3D Lighting System

Stage Light includes 3 built-in lights that can be set to either a point light or spotlight. The point light is a single source that radiates evenly in every direction. Think the sun, a light bulb, or a traffic light. Spotlights deliver visible light beams that gradually spread outwards from the source to the target through the user-defined source and target in 3D space. Think your latest concert or that award-winning play you just saw.

Multiple Light Render Modes

Four render mode options are available for each light: weak, strong, natural, and linear. The render modes allow you to mimic real-world lighting by enabling you to quickly and easily control falloff. Weak mode gives you a strong light at the source with rapid fallout. Strong mode delivers a very gradual falloff. Natural mode produces the most organic looking result and Linear mode provides the least amount of falloff.

Multiple Light Models

Stage Light contains three distinct light model types to help you create the most realistic look: natural, distant falloff, and constant. Spotlights offer two model options: "off" which produces no light at all or natural which produces an organic beam of visible light. Point light sources offer three models: "off", natural, and constant radius, which produces an almost solid spot of light with very slight and rapid falloff around the edges.

Individual Lighting Control

The three built-in lights can be controlled independently. Set the position, intensity, color, render mode, light model, and light type parameters. Easily mix and match light types and styles, all within a single use of the filter to achieve your desired outcome.

Auto-Animating Smoke/Fog Generator

Create natural-looking, billowing smoke that interacts with Stage Light's volumetric lighting output to produce dramatic, photorealistic effects. The auto-animating fog/smoke generator includes parameters to control the destiny and speed of the smoke.

Light Target Option

Add a spotlight to target a user-specified point in space or reach an alternate source layer in the timeline. This is a handy way to set up a spotlight to reach an animated 3D layer without using keyframes or alternatively to animate the position of a light source while it remains focused on the light target.

Integrated Beat Reactor

Make your effect bounce to the beat, all without a single keyframe. The integrated Beat Reactor syncs Stage Light to the audio sample of your choice. Simply import an audio clip and select the frequency spectrum. The filter automatically drives available parameters like light intensity, position, or even the strength of the smoke.

Factory-Installed Presets

The Stage Light filter includes many professionally-designed presets that can be modified by the user to create the perfect look. Customized presets can be saved and reused in any supported host where Continuum is installed.
