Boris FX says it's converted over its entire product line to support dual processors on the Mac. Boris' line of software includes plugins for Adobe After Effects (and other effects and editing packages), such as Boris RED, Boris FX, Boris Graffiti, Boris AE and Boris Continuum. In addition, the company says it plans to offer Velocity support in future products, such as Boris RED2. This will include accelerated versions of vector-based geometry functions like splines, paint and text tools, as well as accelerated compositing functions.

"Our current support for Apple's dual-processor Power Mac G4 increases productivity and speed today," said Boris Yamnitsky, president and founder of Boris FX, in a prepared statement. "Our future plans to accelerate the Boris FX products for Velocity Engine shows our commitment to provide Apple and Boris customers maximum performance with cutting edge technology."

The company says that certain features of Boris FX products, such as distortions, spins, tumble and image mapping, will render 30 percent to 50 percent faster on Apple's dual-processor Power Mac G4.
