Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated effects technology for video and film, announced that a new Boris Continuum Unit, Lens Blur, is now available. The Boris Continuum Lens Blur Unit delivers Lens Blur, Lens Shape, and Lens Transition filters to Adobe and Apple video editing and compositing software.

"Boris Continuum Complete 7 introduced highly-sought-after Lens Blur effects that we are pleased to break out as a Boris Continuum Unit," commented Boris Yamnitsky, president and founder, Boris FX. "For just $99, editors and compositors can easily simulate camera lens out-of-focus specular highlights - high-end effects that are now available for an entry-level price."

Boris Continuum Lens Blur Unit Filters

* BCC Lens Blur emulates a popular lens blur or rack defocus effect where out-of-focus highlights of an image clip take on the shape of the lens aperture.

* BCC Lens Shape is a designer effect similar to a rack defocus effect where the shape of the bokeh can be imported from an external layer.

* BCC Lens Transition is a wipe filter that applies a lens blur or rack defocus effect to the specular highlights of outgoing and incoming image clips.

The Boris Continuum Lens Blur Unit supports Apple Final Cut Pro, Apple Final Cut Express, Apple Motion, Adobe After Effects, and Adobe Premiere Pro. The Lens Blur filters are also included with the Boris Continuum Complete 7 visual effects plug-in collection.

The Lens Blur Unit is the latest addition to previously-released Boris Continuum Units: Chroma Key, Pan and Zoom, UpRez, Motion Key, Lens Flare, Film Process, Glitters, Optical Stabilizer, Light Rays, 3D Objects, Cartoon Look, Motion Tracker, Image Restoration, Materials, Shaders, and Beat Reactor.
