Avid FX v6 and Boris Continuum Complete v8 AVX Demo Session
Wednesday, October 24, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
New York, United States
Join Boris FX Senior Product Manager, Peter McAuley as he demonstrates Avid FX v6 and Boris Continuum Complete v8 AVX.
Avid FX v6 is an integrated application for 3D compositing, titling, effects, and transitions inside Avid editing and finishing systems. Bundled with Avid Media Composer and Symphony, Avid FX is an indispensable tool for post-production and broadcast professionals, offering a wide range of features right on the Avid timeline as well as a standalone engine for effects creation and rendering. With Peter McAuley, attendees will get an in-depth look at how this tool is used in the real world for 3D compositing, titling, effects and transitions as the industry’s most comprehensive image processing filter suite.
Boris Continuum Complete v8 AVX gives Avid editors the most comprehensive VFX and compositing plug-in suite ever created. A whopping 200+ filters include Extruded Text, 3D particle effects, image restoration tools, lens flares and lights, award-winning chroma keying and compositing, a full suite of color correction tools, time-based effects, blurs, glows, and cinematic effects. All BCC AVX filters take advantage of either multi-processing or OpenGL hardware acceleration for an interactive effects design experience. Over 1,000 professionally-designed presets are included free with every installation of BCC. In addition to exploring the many filters and features in BCC during the demo, attendees will learn how to save and freely share their own presets and build customized preset collections tuned to the specific needs of a project.
Not only will Peter McAuley be sharing his insight and expertise, he will also be giving one lucky attendee a FREE Boris Continuum Complete license!
