Boris FX, a leading developer of integrated effects technology for video and film, has announced that Boris Continuum Complete 6.0.1 AE is now available as a free update for Boris Continuum Complete 6 AE customers. The BCC 6.0.1 AE update adds a new EPS extrusion filter as well as a new anti-aliasing option for the BCC 6 3D Objects category of filters.
What’s New in Boris Continuum Complete 6.0.1 AE:
• Extruded EPS Filter. This new filter provides an easy way for users to import and extrude Adobe Illustrator layered vector logos and graphics in Adobe After Effects. The filter includes full integration with the After Effects 3D camera and lighting system and incorporates the same 3D material presets and free-form deformation properties of other BCC 6 AE 3D Objects filters (Extruded Text, Type-On Text, Extruded Spline, and Layer Deformer). The filter is capable of tracking an EPS file using a Watch Folder, making the EPS file “live” should it be edited in Adobe Illustrator. A handy “Keep EPS Color” feature lets operators preserve the original fill colors for each element as a diffuse color option of the material.
• New “Smooth Edge” Anti-aliasing Option for BCC 3D Objects Filters. This new option enables users to refine the edge smoothness of any BCC 3D Objects filter for more natural compositing against high-contrast backgrounds.
Existing BCC 6 AE customers can download the BCC 6.0.1 AE update free of charge from the Boris FX Web site at http://www.borisfx.com/. A full-functioning 14-day trial version of BCC 6.0.1 AE is available for free download at http://www.borisfx.com/downloads/
