Adobe Premiere Pro Integration
Boris RED is the only 3D compositing, titling, and effects application to work as a plug-in inside Adobe Premiere Pro. When applied to tracks on the Premiere Pro timeline, RED automatically links to the media, eliminating tedious exports and imports and format hassles. In addition, RED can import media from a variety of formats, including still image files, movie files, or EPS files. Once a composite is complete, it can be rendered in Premiere Pro, or the project file can be saved to disk and shared with other Boris RED users.
RED gives Premiere Pro editors all tools needed to create seamlessly-blended composites in 2D and 3D space, including keying and matte creation filters, motion tracking, 3-way color grading, and custom transitions.
RED facilitates sophisticated motion graphics design including text on a path, 3D particles, and true 3D vector objects. Extruded text and objects can be combined with light sources, bump maps, and reflections.
Image and Vector-based Painting
A full-fledged animated paint system gives editors the ability to paint color, spray paint, and clone images.
Image Restoration Tools
RED includes tools for removing or repairing bad pixels, smoothing and softening skin perfections, and removing camera shake. RED can also help integrate legacy low-resolution footage in new HD-sized projects.
Over 200 VFX Filters
RED includes over 200 comprehensive VFX filters from Boris Continuum Complete and Final Effects complete, including transition effects, multiprocessor-accelerated lens blurring effects, and painterly effects.
