Boris FX SAVXU Overview

  • 1Description

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.

Sapphire 2019 for Avid renews one year of Upgrades & Support for new releases of the software as well as phone/email technical support.

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.

New and Enhanced Features

Mocha Planar Tracking & Masking (Enhanced)
Sapphire 2019 features updates to the Mocha planar tracking and masking tool such as four new spline tools, a new look and feel with the Mocha Essentials workspace, and adds retina and high-DPI monitor support. Mocha is integrated right into the interface, and you can 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.
Performance Improvements & Effect Enhancements
GPU acceleration has been improved to increase overall speed and performance and has been optimized for CUDA-enabled NVIDIA cards. Sapphire 2019 has also updated the LensFlare effect, the Flare Designer, and the Effect and Transition Builder.
PixelSort (New)
PixelSort is a new Sapphire effect that grew up in the modern digital "glitch art" movement. It's a fun new way to distort your image in a multitude of different ways and features many deep parameters to produce some stunning results. PixelSort is also available inside Sapphire Effect and Transition builder. Combine it with other Sapphire effects for a truly original effect, and use it as a transition to up production value in any edit.
WhipLash (New)
Sapphire WhipLash is a "sister effect" to one of the most popular Sapphire transitions, SwishPan. It has some amazing new functionality and features that will undoubtedly make it the Sapphire transition of choice. At its core, WhipLash is a new transition that mimics a lighting quick camera pan, blending multiple copies of an image together so it appears as if a great distance is traveled in a short amount of time. WhipLash also features a soft bounce stop, a smooth finish, or a snapback at the end of the transition. RGB separation blurs can be added for a different look and WhipLash can travel in any direction or angle as well as scaling up or down.

All Effects

Adjust

Monochrome
Generates a monochrome version of the source clip using adjustable weights for the red, green, and blue channels. This can simulate the use of a color filter applied to the lens of a black and white camera. For example, use more red weight to darken blue sky areas of the input. The weights are scaled so they sum to 1 before being used to reduce overall brightness changes when they are adjusted.
ClampChroma
Reduces the chrominance of the input clip if necessary so it is not above a specified maximum. This effect can be used to make broadcast-safe colors. It can also be used to scale the chrominance, clamp the luminance, or scale the luminance.
Tint
Tints the dark and light regions of the input clip towards given colors. The dark colors are tinted by the Tint Dark color, and the brighter colors are tinted by the Tint Lights color.
Threshold
Sets the color channels of the source clip to Full On or Full Off using a given softness and threshold. This can be used to increase the contrast of each color channel independently.
ShowBadColors
Identifies all pixels that fall outside a given color range, and flags them with the same color so they can be seen easily.
QuadTone
Performs an interpolation between four specified colors using the brightness of the source clip.
TriTone
Performs an interpolation between three specified colors using the brightness of the source clip.
Invert
Inverts the colors of the source clip, so black becomes white, and white becomes black. This can optionally also invert luma, chroma, RGB and alpha channels independently and do some basic color correction on the inverted result.
HueSatBright
Adjusts the hue, saturation, brightness, and/or offset of the input clip.
HotSpots
Generates a hotspot image containing areas of the source clip brighter than a given threshold. The colors of the hotspots should match the original source. This can be used for increasing contrast or finding the bright areas of a clip, but without changing the color saturation or hue of the result.
Gamma
Applies a gamma correction to the input clip. The red, green, and blue channels can be adjusted independently. From Gamma just causes the inverse effect of adjusting Gamma.
DuoTone
Performs an interpolation between two specified colors using the brightness of the source clip.
ChannelSwitcher
Reorders the RGBA channels of the source clip. Allows mapping any source channel into any output channel, with scaling and offset for each output channel.

Blur and Sharpen

RackDefocus
Simulate a real, defocused camera lens and preserve delicate highlights.
Beauty
Apply smoothing, de-aging, color correction, soft focus, and glow to skin regions.
Blur
Produce a high-quality blur effect without sacrificing speed or interactivity.
BlurMotion
Add realistic motion blur to any clip with full control over angle, size, direction, and complexity.
EdgeAwareBlur
Blur the fine textures of an image while preserving crisp, defined edges.
Deband
Smooth out a clip by removing banding artifacts and diffusing pixels across the banded areas.
GrainRemove
Smooths the source clip while retaining the edges.
SoftFocus
Combines a blurred version of the source with the original to give a soft focus effect.
Median
Applies a median filter to the source image; useful for cleaning up isolated spots and noise.
DefocusPrism
Defocuses the color channels of the source clip into rings of different widths.
BlurMoCurves
Performs a motion blur and optionally transforms the source clip using the animated curves of the Z Dist, Rotate, and Shift parameters. If these parameters are constant, no motion blur will occur.
BlurDirectional
Blurs the source clip in a given direction using a gaussian, triangle, or box filter. It can also blur each channel by different amounts.
BlurChroma
Separates the source into luminance and chrominance components, blurs the chrominance and/or the luminance independently, and recombines them. You can also scale the luma and chroma independently to enhance or remove either.
BlurChannels
Blurs each channel of the source clip by an arbitrary amount using a gaussian, triangle, or box filter.

Distort

Distort
Warp the source clip to generate optical glass-like effects.
Shake
Shake your video on the x, y, and z axis in three different styles: twitchy, jumpy, and standard.
WarpChroma
Separate your footage into multi-colored bands and warp them by different amounts.
WarpMagnify
Magnifies an elliptical region of the source to create a glass lens refraction effect.
WarpVortex
Twists the source clip into a vortex around a given center location.
WarpWaves
Warps the source clip by a wave pattern.
WarpWaves 2
Warps the source clip using two sets of overlapping wave patterns.
WarpFishEye
Expands the center of the source clip as if viewed through a fisheye lens.
WarpPolar
Warps the source clip into a rounded disk shape.
DistortBlur
Blurs the source input clip in the direction of the gradient of the lens input clip.
WarpRepeat
Transforms the source input multiple times and averages the results.
WarpPuff
Warps the source clip based on its gradient.
WarpBubble
Warps the source clip by a smooth noise function. This can be used to create heat diffusion or under water types of effects.

Lighting

LensFlare (Updated)
Generate photorealistic and stylized lens flares or build your own custom flare. LensFlare and the Flare Designer are redesigned and reimagined. The Flare Designer is improved and enhanced to increase the ease of use and expand its functionality. The preset browser is now integrated directly inside the Flare Designer, making accessing and modifying lens flare presets a breeze. A new lens flare "component" workflow allows artists to easily and intuitively build a complex flare from scratch and helps reveal the power and flexibility of Sapphire's flare engine. Finally, 27 new professionally designed presets have been added.
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.

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.
