Boris FX Announces New Continuum Unit: 3-Way Color Grade

Professional Color Grading Tools for Adobe and Apple Video Editing and Compositing Software

Marlborough MA - August 17, 2010 - Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated effects technology for video and film, announced that a new Boris Continuum Unit, 3-Way Color Grade, is now available. The Boris Continuum 3-Way Color Grade Unit brings professional-level color grading tools to desktop editing and compositing systems.

"The 3-Way Color Grade Unit is a professional color correction tool that editors will use on a daily basis," commented Boris Yamnitsky, president and founder, Boris FX. "Built-in masking and keying tools allow editors to isolate areas for secondary color correction. Separate color grading can be applied to the inside and outside of a mask, eliminating an extra compositing step."

  • Primary Color and Luma Controls . Separately adjust dark, mid, and bright regions of an input clip using industry-standard lift/gamma/gain controls.
  • Built-in Power Window Matte and Masking System with Motion Tracking . Isolate a color adjustment to a specific region in the image. Adobe After Effects masks and matte layers can be imported - a perfect complement to CS5's new Rotobrush tool.
