Boris FX Solutions to Support Intel-Mac Systems

New versions of award-winning 3D Compositing, Titling and Effects plug-ins (April 21, 2006)

Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated effects technology for video and film production, will show for the first time Boris native plug-ins running on the Intel-based Macintosh at NAB 2006. Visitors to the Boris FX stand SL2596 can see first-hand the popular Boris Continuum Complete filter package integrated with the latest release of Apples Final Cut Pro (version 5.1), running on the Intel-based Macintosh. Boris Continuum for Intel-based Macintosh will be released later this year.

The first Boris FX product to support the Intel architecture was Boris Calligraphy, a set of four Generators that is included with the Intel-based version of Final Cut Pro. While appearing as native generators, these plugins add valuable titling features, including vector text, auto-animated rolls and crawls, type-on effects, jitter, randomization and Z-space animation including tumble and spin.

Next to support the new architecture will be Boris Red version 4.0. Designed specifically for editors, Red integrates with more than 20 supported NLEs, including Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, and Avid systems. Boris Red is a powerful and versatile application that integrates advanced 2D and 3D compositing, industry-leading software DVE technology, robust 3D extrusion and animation, native vector titling, motion tracking, vector paint, rotoscoping, Adobe Illustrator file animation and extrusion and more, all in a single plug-in. Version 4.0 introduces dozens of new features, including new filters, 16-bit color support and a sophisticated new paint engine. Boris Red version 4.0 is expected to ship in Q3 2006.This release will be quickly followed by Intel-compliant versions of Boris FX and Graffiti.

The Boris solutions, as well as the new Boris Blue will be shown at NAB 2006 at the Las Vegas Convention Center from April 24-27 in booth SL2596. Boris solutions are also included in the third annual NAB Post|Production World Conference. For details, visit
