Welcome to Boris Final Effects Complete 5.0.1 for AE. FEC AE is an effects package with 115 powerful visual effects filters designed for Adobe After Effects , Adobe Premiere Pro and Boris Red. The heart of Final Effects Complete is its ability to generate full-featured two-dimensional and three-dimensional particle animations including ball action, explosions, distortions, jet trails, hair, liquid mercury distortions, spotlights, and color transitions. FEC AE also delivers a complete range of unique auto-animating transitions. Ranging from graceful blur dissolves to radical warps; FEC AE lets you easily create dramatic effects with minimal adjustment.
