Now Available for the Avid™ Product Family for the First-Time

Boston, MA, USA - September 4, 2014 - Boris Continuum Complete 9 (BCC) Units are now available from Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated VFX and workflow technology for video and film. The sixteen Units include new filters, features, and speed improvements from the recently updated flagship product, Boris Continuum Complete.

Host Support:

The updated BCC Units are currently supported in Adobe and Sony applications, and available for the first-time in Avid NLEs.

"The ability to purchase individual units from a larger plug-in set is unique to Boris Continuum Complete," notes Boris Yamnitsky, Boris FX Founder and CEO. "It allows us to offer critical features to our customers at a much lower price point."

"The new BCC AVX Units are a welcome option for Avid users, drastically reducing the entry price for those seeking to enhance their VFX options in Avid systems," says David Colantuoni, Sr. Director of Product Management for Creative Apps and Storage.

Support for Apple, Blackmagic Resolve, Assimilate Scratch, and The Foundry Nuke will be added later this quarter.

New Feature Highlights:

  • FX Browser™ - All BCC Units include the new integrated FX Browser™ window for quick preset browsing and effect selection.
  • BCC Film Unit - Adds BCC Vignette, which mimics the soft feel of a camera lens projected on screen with added luminosity and defocus controls; and BCC 2-Strip Color to recreate the highly saturated retro Technicolor look of Hollywood's early films.
  • BCC Image Restoration Unit - Adds BCC Magic Sharp, which restores perfect contrast and makes blurry footage look its best; and BCC Lens Correction, which is specially designed to remove fish-eye distortion from wide lens cameras like the GoPro. 
  • BCC Keying And Composite Unit - Adds BCC Chromakey Studio, which combines Boris FX's award-winning Chroma Key process into one new convenient filter that provides users with every pre/post green screen composite tool needed
  • BCC Lights Unit - Adds BCC Laser Beam to create beams of light or strobing backgrounds and includes a smoke/fog parameter that reacts to the beam as it is animated through 3D space. The filter uses AE's built-in 3D lights and cameras in Adobe After Effects. Adobe Premiere Pro and Avid use built-in 3D lights and cameras created by Boris FX.
  • BCC Perspective Unit - Adds BCC Pan And Zoom filter can now rotate images in 3D and offer cropping and other adjustment options.
