Boris Red is a plug-in application that provides integrated broadcast-quality features for titling, compositing and 3D effects. You apply Red directly to clips in your host NLE timeline. You then open a custom user interface where you create your effects. This architecture allows the applications to share an interface that appears and behaves the same across different platforms and in each of the more than 20 supported NLEs, including Apple Final Cut Pro HD, Adobe Premiere Pro, and Avid systems. In addition, all three plug-ins include the Red Engine, standalone application that creates effects offline using any computer. The KeyFramer is a cross-platform application that can be distributed free of charge.
