While it's common to think of a facility standardizing on one or another NLE or compositing programs, visual-effects plug-in decisions are often left up to the discretion of editors. As the facility grows, that approach can be a bit too chaotic, so that's why houses such as Turner Studios, CNN, MTV Networks, and the Danish Broadcasting Corporation have standardized on a single inclusive visual-effects suite—in these cases, Boris Continuum Complete from Boris FX.
Boris Continuum Complete 6 brings nearly 200 filters to leading video-editing and compositing applications on Mac OS and Windows. Debuting at NAB Show 2009, new features of version 6 are 13 new filters including Extruded Text, Extruded Spline, Type-On Text, Layer Deformer, Smooth Tone, DV Fixer, and Pixel Fixer.
