The Beginner’s Guide to Boris FX Continuum

Introducing Continuum 

Boris FX Continuum plugins can be used to create a wide range of broadcast, feature film, and social media content. This incredibly rich plugin package is available for Adobe, Avid, Resolve, Final Cut, and other supported OFX hosts. 

Since Continuum contains over 300+ effects, the creative possibilities are endless. With over 4,000 presets, you’ll quickly be able to get up and running with polished-looking effects ready for any project. 

Getting Started

This official course has been designed to teach you the fundamentals of working with Continuum. We’ll start by showing you how to use the FX Editor to find, apply, and customize presets. Then we’ll dive a little deeper as we explore the different kinds of effects in the suite. Finally, we’ll round things out by looking at how each effect has Mocha masking built-in for the ultimate effect workflow. 

Once you learn how to apply and adjust one effect, you can use the same principles to apply and adjust any of the effects inside Boris FX Continuum!
