Boris FX BCWARP overview

  • 1Description

The Boris FX Continuum 11 Warp Unit is a collection of filters that let you distort and morph footage in various ways. The filters include fun-house mirror effects, ripple, wave, and twirl pixel twisters, morph face animation effects, and much more. Some of the filters also feature a built-in PixelChooser with integrated Mocha planar tracking that allows for greater control over which areas of the image the filter should affect.

The Warp Unit is a multi-host plug-in compatible with Adobe, Avid, Resolve, Vegas Pro, and Nuke. It can be used in all host applications at the same time as long as they are on the same computer.

Key Features
  • Built-in presets
  • FX browser (not supported in Apple hosts)
  • PixelChooser matte and masking system with integrated Mocha planar tracking for select filters
  • Hardware acceleration (OpenGL/OpenCL) for select filters
  • Multi-processor (SMP) and multi-core (CMP) support
  • Beat Reactor for audio-generated VFX
  • Support for Adobe host native mask shapes


Turbulence generates auto-animated gel-like distortion fields in an image clip based on input from the built-in noise map and turbulence controls.
Morph performs a combined warp and cross-dissolve from one still image into another still image, resulting in the generation of an animated image morph image clip. The filter relies on the use of user-generated Adobe After Effects spline mask shapes to define edges on the source and on the corresponding destination images to create a realistic image morph.
Displacement Map
The Displacement Map filter uses the luminance or color information from an alternate video or still image track to displace the pixels in the source image horizontally and vertically. This filter creates a version of the source whose distorted regions correspond to the luma or color channel of the Map Layer's media.
Polar Displacement
The Polar Displacement filter uses a Map Layer to displace pixels radially outward from the Center Point and angularly along an arc of a circle centered at the Center Point.
The Ripple filter simulates ripples spreading out from a point of origin in a pool of water, similar to what you see after tossing a pebble into a pond. This filter automatically creates animated ripples and allows you to choose from a range of wave shapes.
Bulge makes the source image appear as if it is stretched over a surface with a bulge or a depression.
Twirl spins the image around a center point, creating a spiral of distortion.
Vector Displacement
Vector Displacement uses the RGB channels in the Map Layer to displace the image in three different directions.
Video Morph
Video Morph performs a combined warp and dissolve blend from one video clip into another clip, resulting in the generation of an animated image morph. The filter uses matched pairs of user-generated Adobe After Effects spline mask shapes to define edges on the source and the corresponding destination clips at key points along the timeline.

For example, when morphing a face from one video clip into a different face in a second video clip, the user creates and animates matched pairs of open or closed spline shapes on the source image clip that follow the contour line of key elements in the source and destination images, such as the jaw line, eyes, ears, etc., and the filter uses these shapes to aid in generating a smooth morph transition between the two clips. While it is creating the image warp, the filter also generates a blend over time between the source and destination clips.

In addition to the AE spline mask shapes, which the filter uses to define the warp, Video Morph also uses Key Markers, which serve as instruction points for the filter's software algorithms. The Key Markers' function is to instruct the filter on when to start and stop the image morph.
Warp is used for the generation of static or animated image warps. The filter relies on the use of user generated pairs of Adobe After Effects spline mask shapes to define the start and stopping point for the image warp. You can use as many pairs of warp shapes as you like to warp the image. In addition, you can contain the warp to a specific region within the image via a single closed spline shape mask.
Wave creates parallel waves instead of waves that radiate from a point.
