SIGGRAPH 2015 announcements: Boris FX and Imagineer Systems

Last day at SIGGRAPH and if you’ve not yet visited booth #312, drop by today and meet the Boris FX and Imagineer Systems team - where they’ll be showcasing the latest versions of their flagship solutions Boris Continuum Complete (BCC) and mocha Pro. They also have daily software prizes to giveaway.

For those of you who missed Siggraph, the Boris FX / Imagineer Systems team are coming to London for an exclusive event at Framestore. Register for this event >>

Following their recent merger both companies have taken steps to integrate mocha’s tracking and masking technology into BBC plug-ins and have BCC effects integrated inside mocha Pro. By combining the development teams and sharing these technologies they are introducing new workflows which will benefit anyone working in VFX or image manipulation.

To show off the fruits of their labour Boris FX / Imagineer Systems will have a selection of guest speakers at their stand demonstrating how they work with these tools and introduce you to new features.

The guest speakers you should try catch at their stand today (Thursday 13 August) are:

Chris Barrett, Good Spirit Graphics: Thurs, 13 Aug at 10am and 1pm

Christopher, an independent VFX artist and software developer, will premiere his new utility, MochaBlend for C4D, which provides a unique solution to get mocha’s 2D planar tracking data, 3D camera solves and roto data into Maxon Cinema 4D.

Jason Hearne, Game Show Network: Thurs, 13 Aug at 2pm

Jason, a senior designer/animator for On-Air promotions at The Game Show Network (GSN), will show how his team recently used mocha Pro and the After Effects puppet tool to track and animate the popular reality, body paint competition series, Skin Wars.

Nick Lambert, Boundary VFX: Thurs, 13 Aug at 11am

Nick, a VFX artist and founding partner of Boundary VFX, and his remote partners are spread across the globe and specialise in rotoscoping, keying, wire and rig removal, paint and scene reconstruction. Nick will show how his team uses mocha Pro and NUKE on Kick Ass 2, Pride, Halo and more.

This is a great opportunity for you to get a preview of Boris Continuum Complete 10 (BCC) and mocha Pro 5.

Boris Continuum Complete 10 (BCC)
