News: Boris FX’s High-End Sapphire Visual Effects Plug-ins Add OFX Support for Autodesk Flame
Brings major creative firepower and increased workflow efficiency to Flame 2020
(Boston, MA--April 7, 2019) Boris FX Sapphire, the essential visual effects suite, will soon be available as an OFX plug-in for Autodesk Flame. Autodesk’s upcoming 2020 release includes new support for OFX plug-ins, marking a significant transition for the advanced 3D VFX and compositing software — and Sapphire 2019 is ready. Technology previews of Sapphire 2019 OFX plugins working inside the future Flame 2020 release are available at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), April 8-11, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada, Booth SL7620.
“Autodesk Flame and Sapphire have a long storied history together, and we can’t wait to start the next chapter with OFX,” says Brian Fox, Director of Product Marketing, Boris FX. “Sapphire Sparks was the first product created by GenArts (now Boris FX). Adding OFX plug-in support to Flame 2020 opens up so many more creative opportunities. Artists can now take advantage of Sapphire’s powerful Effect and Transition Builder to easily create custom effects. Plus, teams can share their presets between all of Sapphire’s supported hosts for a more streamlined workflow across departments. All in all, it’s a win-win situation for Flame artists.”
“OFX third-party plug-in support has been a long requested feature from the Flame community,” says Will Harris, Flame Product Manager, Autodesk. “Sapphire is always the most requested Sparks for Flame, and we couldn’t be happier that the Boris FX team is supporting Sapphire 2019 OFX for Flame 2020 on release.”
Sapphire 2019 for Adobe/OFX is available for $1695. For licensing and cross-grade questions, please contact the Boris FX sales team.
