The creators of Boris FXT and Boris AET, recently launched a new resolution
independent 3D compositing and title effects plug-in. The 3D compositing tool is aimed at commercial television post-production professionals, and is available as a plug-in for Adobe Premiere (NT/MAC), Avid, Discreet edit*, and Media 100/Finish systems. Boris RED makes use of Z-Space, a technology which allows compositors to animate elements in true 3D space, and have them intersect, overlay and cast shadows. Boris is also pushing RED's "3D title animation" capabilities. The suite includes a set of tools which allows one to create, extrude, bevel, texture, light and animate 3D text in 3D space. RED's sophisticated text animation allows one to create multi-page rolls and crawls or more complex title treatments such as individual character animation with animated tracking, light sources and video texture mapping. Title capabilities are also integrated with over 50 effect filters and DVE distortions. Also included in RED are standard effects tools such as keying technology, spot color correction, 3D motion blur, displacement mapping, curvilinear distortions, natural effects, lighting tools, mattes, blurs, and more. Combine these features with Boris' support for After Effects plug-ins, and you have an affordable (US$1995) 3D compositing tool that will make you see RED.
