Boris Transfer AE Now Supports Adobe After Effects for Windows

Seamlessly Transfer Avid and Apple Final Cut Pro Program Sequences to Adobe After Effects

Boston, MA - June 27, 2011 - Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated effects technology for video and film, today announced that Boris Transfer AE is now available for Adobe After Effects running under both Windows and Macintosh operating systems. Previously known as Boris XML Transfer, Boris Transfer AE is an Adobe After Effects plug-in designed for seamless transfer of Avid and Apple Final Cut Pro program sequences to After Effects.

Boris Transfer AE preserves all aspects of an Avid Media Composer or Apple Final Cut Pro project including edits, cuts, dissolves, and treatments. In addition, Boris Transfer AE offers the unique ability to translate Boris Continuum Complete effects used in Avid or Final Cut Pro projects to corresponding Boris Continuum Complete effects in After Effects.

"The ability to transfer Avid program sequences to After Effects with titles, dissolves, and Boris Continuum Complete effects intact saves us a significant amount of time," commented David Baertsch, Creative Director and Senior Editor, db Editorial. "Using Callibrated Software's Callibrated{Q} MXF Import, we are also able to use the original Avid MXF media in After Effects."
