Boris Ships Real-Time AVX Plugins

18 new filters complement Continuum Complete AVX By Dave Nagel
Boris FX has released a set of new plugins for Avid AVX systems. The new plugins all offer real-time performance within the Avid environment and are available now as a free download for users of Continuum Complete AVX.

Continuum Complete AVX is a package of filters for Avid AVX systems that now includes more than 90 filters. These include 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 new real-time effects in the collection include Basic Blur, Boost Blend, Brightness-Contrast, Color Balance, Colorize, Composite, Fast Flipper, Invert-Solarize, Levels Gamma, Linear Luma Key, Make Alpha Key, MultiTone Mix, PixelChooser, Posterize, Tritone, Mosaic, RGB Blend and Two Way Key.

According to Boris, all of the filters work in the Avid Xpress native interface to "minimize learning curve and maximize productivity."

The filters are available now as a free download for current BCC AVX users. For more information, visit
