Real-time 3D, compositing and motion graphics solution based on the award-winning Boris Red

(Boston, MA) Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated effects technology for video and film production, today announced the availability of a public beta of Boris Blue. Boris Blue is a 3D compositing and motion graphics solution based on the award-winning Boris Red plug-in. This standalone application provides unprecedented 3D creativity with real-time performance to accelerate your workflow.

"Blue leverages the power of NVIDIA's Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) cards to provide hardware-based rendering," said Boris FX founder and president Boris Yamnitsky. "With real-time interactivity and innovative pixel shaders, this free download provides users with an opportunity to try this exciting new product and give us valuable feedback."

Blue is a powerful and versatile application that integrates advanced 2D and 3D compositing, robust 3D modeling and animation, industry-leading DVE technology, sophisticated titling, motion tracking, vector paint, Adobe Illustrator file animation and extrusion and more, in a single application. Combining a comprehensive toolset with the real-time performance of industry-standard OpenGL cards, Blue significantly increases users creative options. OpenGL is a cross-platform standard that dramatically improves the speed and interactivity of 2D and 3D previews.

Key Features include:
  • Adjust parameters with interactive real-time playback, including streaming video and audio.
  • Powerful 3D Particles use any shape as a particle while emitters can include multiple particle types. Multiple attractors and repellers provide dynamic particle interaction.
  • Extrude text, custom splines or imported EPS files with custom bevels and surfaces.
  • 3D Model Import preserves individual geometry groups, texture maps, and bump maps.
  • Sophisticated Materials include Texture Maps, Bump Maps, and dynamic Reflection Maps with per pixel lighting controls.
  • Vertex Deformers provide true 3D warping of 3D objects.
  • Image Processors and Generators include keying, tinting and toning, distortions, and transitions.
  • Masking, compositing, and motion blur provide precise control and RT performance.
  • OpenGL hardware-accelerated rendering lets you export High Quality movies very quickly.

Boris Blue gives users instant gratification as they can view the results of their work immediately. In addition to the real-time capabilities, hundreds of presets, online documentation and a minimal learning curve will streamline effects creation. Although it hasn
