News: Boris FX and Imagineer Systems Team Up to Unveil New Graphics and VFX Tools at NAB 2015
Boris Continuum Complete 10 and mocha Pro 5 new technology demos at NAB
(Boston, MA--March 26, 2015) Boris FX™, the leading developer in VFX and workflow solutions for film and video, and Imagineer Systems, the Academy Award-winning developer of mocha® Planar Tracking tools, will be previewing the newest versions of flagship products, Boris Continuum Complete and mocha Pro, at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show, April 13-16, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, booth SL4225.
NAB 2015 will mark the public debut of integrated technology following the recent strategic merger between Boris FX and Imagineer Systems. “Following the successful merger, we will preview the work of our combined development teams,” explains Boris Yamnitsky, founder and CEO, Boris FX. “By incorporating mocha’s powerful planar tracking directly into Continuum Complete and also giving mocha Pro the ability to launch as a plug-in, we’ll bring more advanced visual effects tools directly to hosts such as Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere, and Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve.”
Yamnitsky continues, “Beyond the mocha integration, we will be showcasing many new product features including: BCC Title Studio, a new creative tool built to design and animate 3D titles and motion graphics, and BCC Beauty Studio, a new digital makeup tool for skin smoothing and removing blemishes – all based on shared technology between Boris FX and Imagineer Systems.” Following the NAB technology previews, any purchases of BCC or mocha Pro made after March 25, 2015 will receive free upgrades to the next major versions which will ship later this year.
Boris Continuum Complete (BCC)
Boris Continuum Complete gives editors, motion graphic artists, and post-production facilities the most comprehensive VFX plug-in suite ever created. The expansive 200+ filter collection is ubiquitous among Avid editors and Adobe Creative Cloud users. It includes 3D titling; image restoration tools; lens flares, glows, and lights; keys and mattes; warp and perspective effects; and cinematic effects. All filters take advantage of either OpenCL, NVIDIA CUDA, multi-threading or OpenGL hardware acceleration for a streamlined design experience. Building upon the success of version 9, the soon-to-be-released Boris Continuum Complete 10 offers greater integration with mocha, new 3D titling tools, import of Cinema 4D models, new image restoration filters, new transitions, and added host support.

addresses key feature requests that our users have asked for,” comments Ross Shain, Chief Marketing Officer of Boris FX/Imagineer.
“For years users have looked for tighter mocha integration with their host timeline and media. With the new ability to launch directly as a plug-in, we are providing a much smoother experience for Avid, Premiere, and Resolve users, as well as our core base of After Effects and NUKE artists. Additionally the new effects filters built in collaboration with Boris FX bring indispensable features directly to mocha Pro such as an integrated keyer that will improve roto-masking and sharpen and grain tools that improve the already powerful object remove and image restoration capabilities.”
