I am not able to view Boris Red as a Filter in FCP. My predecessor said that he had no trouble with it. When I look at my FCP Filters, I see Boris Red Filter FCP but it has an After Effects icon in front of it. I do not want to use After Effects. I also noticed that when I go to System info and look at my Applications, Boris Red is shown as "Not Available". I was hoping to remedy this situation without re-installing Boris Red 3.0.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Greg

You will need to reinstall Red and choose the Final Cut Pro plugin option. The default installation doesn't have the FCP plugin so you will need to choose it. I use Red all the time as a plugin for FCP HD. It sounds like your installation either became corrupted or wasn't working in the first place. The reinstall doesn't take that long and it will be a great addition to FCP.

Doug,

Thanks! I did have to reinstall Red. My concern was losing previous built effects but Boris' support walked me through the process and showed how install just the engine and filter for FCP. I love Boris, they are very good about thinking things through to make posting much easier. Do you happen to know if Boris Red has a Solar Flare effect available? I have been looking for one but have had no luck. Plenty of lights but no flares. Just Curious.

May His grace and peace keep love strong within your heart and home.

Boris Red might not have a solar flare effect. Boris Continuum Complete has many more lighting effects than Red and I would guess there is one in that program. We purchased Cont. Complete to get a Trapcode Shine type of lighting effect. The Cont. Complete can work as a plugin for FCP and Red. The lighting effects seem to rely on the pixel chooser to cast the effects on alpha channel graphics. Overall if you've used Red, the Cont. Complete will be similar in the interface.
