Boris Continuum Complete AVX 5: Unleash Your Avid!

Creatvie Cow by Vivek Narayan Creative Cow BCC AVX Emmy Award-winning editor Vivek Narayan takes a closer look at the latest version of Boris Continuum Complete, a comprehensive set of filters and effects for leading NLEs as well as After Effects. Although it works largely the same in all hosts, Vivek digs deepest into BCC operating inside Avid. He finds that the 180 filters here more than give others a run for their money: it beats out some of the industry's favorites. See why he calls buying BCC AVX 5 "a no-brainer." Having made a career predominantly on Avid NLEs, I have come to rely on their stability and ability to share assets seamlessly over networks. But when it is time to get creative, the industry standard has often left me frustrated with its sparse effect palette. Enter Boris Continuum Complete AVX, a comprehensive collection of plug-ins that promises to upgrade the Avid experience, transforming the editor into an enterprising effects and compositing solution. BCC AVX 5 offers 180 highly customizable effects, including 10 brand new effects and a whole new category. Since this is my first review of any BCC product, I approached it as a first look at some of its most interesting and useful features. First, it ships bundled with every copy of Media Composer, so if you have a recent version of Media Composer, you already own BCC AVX, whether you like it or not. Second, BCC’s feature set blurs the line between Xpress Pro and Media Composer on some fronts. All right, it’s time for the test drive. read more...
