BorisFX ( has released Boris AAF Transfer 2.0, an update of the set of two Apple Final Cut Pro plug-ins for transferring sequences between Final Cut Pro and Avid editing and finishing systems.

One of the plug-ins exports Avid-compatible AAF format files from Final Cut Pro to Avid editing and finishing systems. The other plug-in imports AAF format files from Avid editing and finishing systems to Final Cut Pro.

Using Boris AAF Transfer, Avid and Final Cut Pro users can exchange projects that include transitions, effects, image and time warps, third party effects, and keyframes. Avid’s AMA (Avid Media Access) architecture gives Avid users direct access to many QuickTime formats, while Final Cut Pro users can access Avid MXF files using Calibrated Software’s Calibrated{Q} MXF Import for OS X. Boris AAF Transfer supports both online and offline workflows.

Boris AAF Transfer is available immediately through the Boris FX worldwide reseller channel and direct through the Boris FX web site at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US$299 or $399 when bundled with the Boris XML Transfer plug-in for Adobe After Effects. Boris AAF Transfer supports Apple Final Cut Pro 6 and higher, Avid Media Composer, Avid NewsCutter, Avid Symphony, and Avid DS. A free, full-functioning 14-day trial version is available for immediate download from the Boris FX web site. Boris AAF Transfer Version 2 is a free upgrade for all Boris AAF Transfer users.
