Boris FX (http://www.borisfx.com), a developer of integrated effects
technology for video and film, has updated Boris Continuum Complete 6
FxPlug (BCC 6 FxPlug) for Apple Pro Video Applications to version
6.0.4. It’s revved for Final Cut Studio 3 and introduces support for
Final Cut Pro 7 and Apple Motion 4.
Other new features include a revamped Optical Stabilizer for Final
Cut Pro with automated scaling and an interactive user interface. BCC
6 FxPlug brings over 200 filters to Apple Final Cut Pro, Motion, and
Final Cut Express. In addition to new features included with the
recently-released Boris Continuum Complete 6 AE for Adobe — such as
Extruded Text, Splines, and Shapes — BCC 6 FxPlug takes advantage of
Apple FxPlug’s real-time architecture for simultaneous live previews
of dozens of preset transitions, glows, and color and film look
effects in a newly-designed effects browser window.
The initial release of BCC 6 FxPlug features over a dozen new FxPlug
Shaders. Many of the FxPlug Shaders draw on BCC strengths such as
lights, keying, and 3D, according to the folks at Boris. FxPlug
Shaders are unique to Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express, and Motion,
tying directly to each host application’s render pipe.
Boris Continuum Complete 6 FxPlug supports Final Cut Pro, Motion, and
Final Cut Express and is available immediately through the Boris FX
worldwide reseller channel and direct through the (a

at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US$995. Version 6.0.4
is a free update for Complete 6FxPlug customers. A 14-day trial
version is available for free download. Customers who purchased BCC 5
FxPlug since Feb. 5, 2009 are eligible to receive a free upgrade to
BCC 6 FxPlug.
