Boris FX Introduces Boris Continuum Complete 7 AE
11 April 2010

Over 200 next-generation filters re-engineered for 64-bit processing and OpenGL acceleration

Marlborough MA - April 12, 2010 - Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated effects technology for video and film, today announced Boris Continuum Complete 7 AE (BCC 7 AE). BCC 7 AE brings over 200 filters to Macintosh and Windows versions of Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro CS5, CS4, and CS3. The new release features 11 new filters including a 3-way color grade filter with built-in keying and masking tools, a new video noise reduction tool, a spline-based warp filter, an audio-driven keyframe generator, a new OpenGL particle engine, and still and video morph technology. Each Boris Continuum Complete filter has been re-engineered to take advantage of 64-bit processing and OpenGL acceleration.

"BCC 7 AE is the next generation of our award-winning visual effects plug-in suite," commented Boris Yamnitsky, president and founder, Boris FX. "Each filter harnesses the power of multiple 64-bit processors and modern graphics cards to deliver an interactive experience for editors and compositors. In addition, BCC 7 AE delivers highly sought-after technologies such as 3-way color grading, noise reduction, audio-driven keyframe generation, and still image and video morphing."

"BCC 7 AE is by far the most advanced release of BCC to date and represents a significant upgrade from earlier versions," commented Ned Soltz, Contributing Editor, DV Magazine. "OpenGL and 64-bit compatibility provide faster screen redraw as well as rendering. The new 3 Way Color Grade provides options for masking as well as motion tracking an area. And my favorite addition to the collection is the Beat Reactor technology, available within a number of the plug-ins, which sets keyframes to the clip's audio track. BCC users should not miss this upgrade. And for new users who may have shown some hesitancy in the past, now's the time to jump on the bandwagon. BCC AE is now a fully-mature 32 and 64 bit plug-in suite."
