Update brings revamped UI, improved workflow
Boris FX has added 64-bit support and a large group of new filters in its video effects plug-in suite, launching its Boris RED 5 update today. The program offers transitions, pro-level text and advanced composites for video editing software from Adobe, Apple, Avid and others. The new version extends support to 64-bit editing programs such as Sony Vegas 9 but also supports Mac and Windows video editing programs in 32-bit versions as well. Version 5 includes filters from the Boris Final Effects Complete VFX plug-in collection to Boris RED, including Ball Action, Bubbles and Wiggle Edges.
Filters repair video blemishes, jaggies, more
Boris FX has launched a new title in its DV tools series, Boris Continuum Image Restoration. Image Restoration includes three filters: Smooth Tone, Pixel Fixer and DV Fixer. Smooth Tone focuses on repairing skin blemishes and makeup glitches without degrading image sharpness and detail.
