Boris FX Announces New Boris Continuum Unit: Beat Reactor
21 June 2010

Audio-driven Keyframe Generation for Adobe After Effects CS5, CS4, and CS3

Marlborough MA - June 22, 2010 - Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated effects technology for video and film, announced that a new Boris Continuum Unit, Beat Reactor, is now available. The Boris Continuum Beat Reactor Unit offers fast, precise, and flexible ways to use audio to influence the animation of visual effects parameters in Adobe After Effects compositions - resulting in dynamic, high-energy effects that are tightly integrated into compositions.

Beat Reactor can be used within Adobe After Effects to generate keyframes based on an audio track within the composition. The keyframes can be used to affect parameters within the composition by using AE expressions or by copying and pasting the generated keyframes.

"The Boris Continuum Beat Reactor Unit can be used to influence almost any parameter in an Adobe After Effects composition," commented Boris Yamnitsky, president and founder, Boris FX. "The filter makes 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 Boris Continuum Beat Reactor Unit is immediately available for an MSRP of $99 USD. Beat Reactor supports Adobe After Effects CS5, CS4, and CS3 under 64-bit and 32-bit operating systems. Customers who purchase the Boris Continuum Beat Reactor Unit or any other Boris Continuum Unit may credit the price of the Unit towards the full Boris Continuum Complete plug-in suite.
