    Boris Continuum Complete v11

    Has anyone upgraded from v10 to 11?  If so was it a worthwhile update?  What are your thoughts?

    Apart from some Title Studio improvements and VR tools, the main addition seems to be the Primatte keyer, which is a very good chroma keyer for green/blue-screen work.

    I guess if you do a lot of compositing work, the upgrade will pay for itself, but you're always going to hindered by Avid's effect architecture. If I were buying a full Continuum licence, I would prefer to go with an OFX version which would allow me to use it in applications like Fusion, where I know I could achieve superior results.

    I would go for the multi-host license. Keep in mind that BCC is not fully compatible with Fusion, though (at least according g to BorisFX). If you do green screen stuff in MC Primatte Studio is unbelievable! Also - if you happen to have Sapphire 11 - the compositing modes for stacked effects seems to generally work better than in previous versions (something about a change in BCC regarding the way it handles stacking - remember the old first, mid, last? I think they did away with that - read it but I need to try it to understand the benefits).
