Boris RED is the first plug-in that combines 3D title animation and compositing
effects into a plug-in suite application that integrates seamlessly into
non-linear online finishing systems.
Created for editing professionals in commercial television postproduction,
Boris RED allows users to create sophisticated 3D composites using new
"Z-Space" containers for intersecting video layers in true 3D space. RED
also includes complete title effects and animation functionality, which
can be expanded by using compatible Adobe After Effects plug-ins all within
a non-linear online "host".
Designed to function as more than just a simple filter or "plug-in," Boris
RED provides a seamlessly integrated effects and titling environment.
Beta testers using Boris RED have found it simplifies their effects creation
workflow while increasing their creative options. Beta tester Scott
Ogden, senior editor at the Ant Farm, a top trailer house in LA, said:
"Adding RED to an Avid system expands my creative options. The combination
of extensive text animation controls, color correction, and blurring effects
make Boris RED one of the most powerful plug-in additions you can purchase
for an Avid system."
Feature highlights in Boris RED include:
- Resolution Independent
3D Text Creation. Boris RED delivers extruded 3D text creation functionality
complete with advanced controls for bevel, lights and texture mapping.
Individual letters can be kerned for precise alignment. Once typed,
words can be extruded, resized, rotated in 3D space and texture mapped
with video or colors. Boris RED 3D Text creation provides integrated
light sources for creating realistic animated lighting effects.
- Comprehensive 3D
Title Animation. Boris RED's resolution independent title animation
module can create multi-page rolls and crawls or more sophisticated
title treatments such as individual character animation with animated
tracking, light sources and video texture mapping. RED's extensive title
capabilities are integrated with over 50 effect filters and DVE distortions.
- Z-Space - True
3D Environment. Animate unlimited DVE layers in true 3D space. Layers
can intersect and pass through each other using high quality full scene
anti-aliased rendering. Each object can receive and cast soft edge shadows
allowing for a more realistic 3D environment.
- Advanced Effects
Creation Capabilities. Boris RED builds upon the award winning technology
of the Boris FX 4.0 and Boris AE 3.0. Compositing features include,
advanced keying technology, spot color correction, 3D motion blur per
layer, displacement mapping, curvilinear distortions, natural effects,
lighting tools, mattes, blurs, and a new "Z-Space" container for animating
multiple DVE objects in true 3D space.
- Support for After
Effects Plug-ins. Boris RED has a built in support for Adobe After Effects
compatible plug-ins. This allows editors to take advantage of a wider
range of effects and compositing plug-in tools not currently available
for non-linear finishing systems.
Pricing and Availability
Boris RED will be available to customers next week through resellers world-wide
with an MSRP $1995.00 USD.
