Boris Announces Continuum AVX

Effects plugin for Avid coming in Q3 By Dave Nagel
Boris FX has announced Continuum Complete AVX, an effects package for various Avid editing systems, including Xpress DV. The software is not available yet, but the company says it will ship this quarter, as will a special bundle with Boris' compositing package, RED.

Continuum Complete is a package of filters for NLEs and motions graphics software, such as Final Cut pro and After Effects. It includes 80 filters and also brings several new tools to its host application, including new apply modes, the ability to mix apply modes in a single layer, advanced animation tools and new ways of managing multi-layer compositions. It also provides a Z Space compositing filter so that each layer has full 3D rotation capabilities with global 3D capabilities for hierarchical animation. Users can intersect layers in 3D space with soft cast shadows, 3D spotlights and motion blur.

The latest version adds several new features, including:

  • Native AVX interface for all of the 80 filters.
  • Effects filters like Film Grain, Light Zoom, Cartooner, Vector Displacement, Particles and natural filters.
  • Time filters.
  • Ability to apply effects to titles.
  • Effects presets.

The new AVX version of Continuum Complete will also be offered in a special bundle with Boris RED called the Motion Graphics Pack.

For Avid Xpress, Media Composer and Symphony, Continuum Complete runs $1,595. It will sell for $595 for the Xpress DV version. The Motion Graphics Pack runs $2,495 for Xpress, Media Composer and Symphony and $1,295 for Xpress DV. A version for Avid DS will ship later for $2,495 alone or $3,495 in the bundle.
