New 64-bit Release Supports Avid Media Composer v6, Symphony v6, and NewsCutter v10

(Boston, Massachusetts--November 15, 2011) Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated VFX and workflow technology for video and film, today announced that Boris Continuum Complete 8 AVX (BCC 8 AVX) is now available. BCC 8 AVX delivers 200+ comprehensive VFX and compositing filters to Avid Media Composer, NewsCutter, and Symphony. Flicker Remover and Videoscope tools, integrated Beat Reactor technology for audio-driven effect animation, a new Film Glow filter, and support for 64-bit operating systems headline the Version 8 release.

BCC AVX gives Avid editors the most comprehensive VFX and compositing plug-in suite ever created. A whopping 200+ filters include 3D Objects such as Extruded Text, 3D particle effects, image restoration tools, lens flares and lights, award-winning chroma keying and compositing, a full suite of color correction tools, time-based effects such as Optical Stabilizer, warp and perspective effects, and blurs, glows, and cinematic effects. All BCC AVX filters take advantage of either multi-processing or OpenGL hardware acceleration for an interactive effects design experience.

Over 1,000 professionally-designed presets are included free with every installation of BCC. Customers can save and freely share their own presets and build customized preset collections tuned to the specific needs of a project – without the need for a costly subscription service. Presets can be shared with matching BCC installations on any host application in which BCC is installed. In addition, via the Boris Transfer workflow utilities, BCC is the only plug-in set that allows easy VFX migration between Avid, Adobe, and Apple editing software – with parameters and keyframed information intact. Boris Transfer AE transfers Avid or Final Cut Pro sequences to After Effects while Boris Transfer FCP transfers sequences between Avid and Final Cut Pro.

Boris Continuum Complete 8 AVX New Feature Highlights
  • BCC Videoscope checks color levels at any stage of an Avid project, ensuring broadcast-legal colors of the final output or any individual element in the project.

  • BCC Film Glow creates the soft feel of exposed film.

  • BCC Flicker Fixer repairs video affected by flickering light or uneven shutter exposure.

  • Beat Reactor Technology is now built into many BCC AVX filters, making it easy to generate audio-driven effects such as a pulsing light, a glow, or even an image wipe that follows along with the beat of an audio track.

The following new features will be available to BCC 8 AVX customers via a forthcoming free software update:
  • BCC Stage Light simulates production lights, projectors, or stage lighting.

  • BCC Lens Flare 3D creates cinematic looks and stylish broadcast design elements.

  • BCC Particle Emitter 3D provides a powerful, OpenGL-accelerated particle system.

  • BCC Organic Strands emulates flowing strands of matter, glowing plasma, and more.

  • BCC Wild Cards allows editors to build complex designs of 2D images in 3D space.

I'm having a hard time finding system requirements. Will it run on Snow Leopard? Will it run on Avid MC 5.5?

Thanks Peter. Not to overly sweat this, but you included OS 10.6.7, but not 10.6.8. Is there any issue with the last version of Snow Leopard? That's what I'm running.

Hi Martin,

10.6.8 should be fine and I believe I was just missing a plus sign after 10.6.7 to indicate that the minimum supported OS level is 10.6.7 ... feel free to download the BCC 8 trial installer and give it a shot.

Cheers,

Peter.

[peter mcauley] "feel free to download the BCC 8 trial installer and give it a shot."

Thanks Peter, but I'm still running MC 5.5 and don't want to go to 6 until I'm done with this project. Maybe then.

Thanks for the clarification,

Martin

Will those new filters be available for separate download on other hosts (Boris Red)? I don't know what has been policy on these.

Yes, the new filters will indeed be available for all hosts that are typically supported with BCC. You can find a list of the supported BCC hosts on our web site.

The version with support for Boris RED, which is the same version that supports After Effects and Premiere Pro, is not available just yet, but it will be up there very soon.

Cheers,

Peter.
