Boston, Maine – Boris FX, a developer of integrated VFX and workflow technology for video and film, today announced that Boris Continuum Complete 8 AE (BCC 8 AE) is now available. BCC 8 AE delivers more than 200 VFX filters to Macintosh and Windows versions of Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro CS5.5, CS5, and CS4. New flicker reduction and videoscope tools, OpenGL hardware acceleration, 32-bit float support, deeper After Effects integration, and enhanced lens flares, particles, glows, and lights headline this new release. BCC gives editors and compositors a comprehensive VFX plug-in suite. Filters include; 3D objects such as Extruded Text, 3D particle effects, image restoration tools, lens flares and lights, keys and mattes, 3 Way Colour Grading and other colour correction tools; time-based effects such as Optical Stabilizer, warp and perspective effects; and blurs, glows, and cinematic effects. All filters take advantage of either multi-processing or OpenGL hardware acceleration for an interactive experience. More than 1,000 professionally-designed presets are included free with every installation of BCC. Customers can save and freely share their own presets and build customized preset collections tuned to the specific needs of a project. Both static and animated BCC presets are supported on the After Effects platform. Presets can be shared with matching BCC installations on any host application in which BCC is installed. In addition, via the Boris Transfer workflow utilities, BCC allows easy VFX migration between Adobe, Avid, and Apple video editing software – with parameters and keyframed information in-tact. Boris Transfer AE transfers Avid or Final Cut Pro sequences to After Effects while Boris Transfer FCP transfers sequences between Avid and Final Cut Pro.
