Boris FX Solutions to Support Intel-Based Macintosh Systems

continuumLots of news from Boris today, eh.

New versions of award-winning 3D Compositing, Titling and Effects plug-ins support Apple hardware advancements

Read the press release

Boris FX will show for the first time Boris native plug-ins running on the Intel-based Macintosh at NAB 2006. Visitors to the Boris FX stand SL2596 can see first-hand the popular Boris Continuum Complete filter package integrated with the latest release of Apple's Final Cut Pro (version 5.1), running on the Intel-based Macintosh. Boris Continuum for Intel-based Macintosh will be released later this year.

"As a developer of integrated Mac OS solutions for more than 10 years, we are proud to support the next generation of Apple computers," said Boris FX founder and president, Boris Yamnitsky. "We're excited about the potential performance enhancements that this will provide to our loyal Macintosh users."

The first Boris FX product to support the Intel architecture was Boris Calligraphy, a set of four Generators that is included with the Intel-based version of Final Cut Pro. While appearing as native generators, these plugins add valuable titling features, including vector text, auto-animated rolls and crawls, type-on effects, jitter, randomization and Z-space animation including tumble and spin.

Next to support the new architecture will be Boris Red version 4.0. Designed specifically for editors, Red integrates with more than 20 supported NLEs, including Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, and Avid systems. Boris Red is a powerful and versatile application that integrates advanced 2D and 3D compositing, industry-leading software DVE technology, robust 3D extrusion and animation, native vector titling, motion tracking, vector paint, rotoscoping, Adobe Illustrator file animation and extrusion and more, all in a single plug-in. Version 4.0 introduces dozens of new features, including new filters, 16-bit color support and a sophisticated new paint engine. Boris Red version 4.0 is expected to ship in Q3 2006. This release will be quickly followed by Intel-compliant versions of Boris FX and Graffiti.
