Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated effects technology for
video and film, announced that Boris Continuum Complete 6 AE (BCC 6
AE) is now available. BCC 6 AE brings nearly 200 filters to Macintosh
and Windows versions of Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro.
The new release features 13 new filters including Extruded Text,
Extruded Spline, Type-On Text, Layer Deformer, Smooth Tone, DV Fixer,
and Pixel Fixer. In addition, BCC 6 AE delivers unique workflow
enhancements such as support for After Effects’ Camera and Lighting
System, the ability to import After Effects mask paths into BCC 6 AE
filters, saving and loading of XML-based animated presets, a
single-click custom preset navigation tool, and motion tracking data
import and export in an industry-standard format.
The new version also includes:
* Support for AE’s Camera and Lighting System. Many BCC filters –
including Extruded Text, Type-On Text, and Extruded Spline – are now
integrated with AE’s camera and lighting system for easy, intuitive
setup using AE’s native tools and controls.
* Import AE Mask Paths into Boris Continuum Complete Filters. From 3D
text on a path to custom bevel profiles and extruded spline objects,
AE masks can now be used to control the geometry of BCC 6 AE filters.
Now there is no need to learn a custom user interface or switch to a
different application to adjust spline shapes. Users may take
advantage of AE’s familiar mask tools for all custom spline work.
Additionally, all BCC 6 AE filters feature the ability to load custom
AE spline masks into BCC’s built-in PixelChooser matte and masking
system for ultimate control over the filtered result.
* Custom Animated Presets. This unique feature lets users save and
re-use every parameter animation in every BCC filter – even across
host applications and platforms. BCC 6 AE includes 1000+
factory-installed animated presets. Animated presets are now saved in
an industry-standard XML format so that they can be viewed and edited
by any XML-compliant text editor.
* Single-Click Custom Preset Navigation Tool lets users easily browse
presets without opening a pop-up box. Both static and animated
presets are immediately applied and the host preview window is
automatically updated to reflect the selected preset. Over 1500
factory-installed, user-modifiable presets are included with BCC 6 AE.
* Built-In Motion Tracker Enhancements are found in almost every
filter. Users may now save motion tracker data from one filter and
load the saved data in another filter or in After Effects itself.
* Significant Performance Gains. Every BCC 6 AE filter is either
