Topic: Audio-Synched Events
In this video tutorial, Kevin P. McAuliffe takes a look at Boris Continuum Complete 7 AE’s new Beat Reactor technology. Beat Reactor is a new BCC 7 AE filter that lets you sample specific bands of audio from a clip and uses the sampled audio levels to drive effect parameters. In addition to being available as a standalone BCC 7 AE filter, the new Beat Reactor technology has been added as a built-in feature for many other BCC 7 AE filters. Beat Reactor makes it easier to generate audio-driven effects such as adding a pulsing light, a glow, or even an image wipe that follows along with the beat of an audio track.
