New 3D Objects, Real-Time Effects Browser Window, and Real-Time Chroma Key, Film Look, and Transition Effects for Apple Pro Video Applications.
Marlborough, MA – Boris FX , the leading developer of integrated effects technology for video and film, announced that a public beta of Boris Continuum Complete 6 FxPlug (BCC 6 FxPlug) for Apple Pro Video Applications is now available. BCC 6 FxPlug brings over 200 filters to Apple Final Cut Pro, Motion, and Final Cut Express. In addition to new features included with the recently-released Boris Continuum Complete 6 AE for Adobe – such as Extruded Text, Splines, and Shapes – BCC 6 FxPlug takes advantage of Apple FxPlug’s real-time architecture for simultaneous live previews of dozens of preset transitions, glows, and color and film look effects in a newly-designed effects browser window.
Code-named “Popcorn”, this new technology delivers the best of Boris on Apple’s FxPlug platform. “With the number of filters and presets growing fast in everyone’s Final Cut editor, it is hard to find the right look or animation quickly using traditional menus and scroll lists,” comments Boris Yamnitsky, founder and president, Boris FX. “Our new, innovative Preset Effects Browser Window allows for a lot of brainstorming without a lot of headache.” The initial release of BCC 6 FxPlug will feature over a dozen new FxPlug Shaders. Many of the FxPlug Shaders draw on BCC strengths such as lights, keying, and 3D. FxPlug Shaders are unique to Apple Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express, and Motion, tying directly to each host application’s render pipe for maximum efficiency and render speed. BCC 6 FxPlug will be publicly demonstrated for the first time at the NAB 2009 exhibition held in Las Vegas , Nevada from April 20-23, 2009 at Booth SL5320.
