BCC AVX4Integrated visual effects use the new AVX 2.0 Architecture Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated effects technology for video and film production, today announced that version 4.0 of Continuum Complete AVX (BCC AVX) is now available. Version 4.0 runs on the new AVX 2.0 architecture. Avid Visual Extensions (AVX) is a plug-in architecture that dynamically extends the effects supported by Avid systems. BCC AVX is a comprehensive suite of native plug-in filters and transitions designed to streamline workflow for Avid editors. BCC AVX filters are animated directly in the Avid Effect Editor window. More than 170 sophisticated filters include Corner Pin, Optical Stabilizer, Lens Flare, Glint, Glare, DeGrain, Match Grain, DeNoise, DeInterlace, Optical Flow, Motion Blur, Glow, Wire Remover, and Witness Protection. A subset of the filters preview in real time on Avid systems with supported hardware. BCC AVX is bundled with all Avid Media Composer Adrenaline systems. “Both new and existing users will benefit from the significant new features that we’ve added to BCC AVX’s already robust integration,† said Boris FX founder and president Boris Yamnitsky. “With performance and productivity enhancements, BCC AVX continues to offer Avid editors the industry standard in native filter effects.† Version 4.0 improvements include: - Access to Avid’s Advanced Keyframing model. - The filters offer 16-bit color processing. - Improved Motion Tracker provides increased accuracy. - The unique PixelChooser lets you create animatable vector masks with bezier handles. - Motion key technology removes moving foreground objects based on motion estimation. - New filters include Color Match, Halftone, Median, Corner Pin Tracker, Optical Stabilizer and an OpenGL-based 3D Extruded Image Shatter. - Hundreds of new presets have been added. - Settings remain fully compatible with the Version 3.0 release. AVX 1.5 effects are easily promoted to AVX 2.0. “It’s exciting to see the Avid developer community begin to take advantage of the AVX 2.0 architecture’s extended features including deeper colorspace and advanced keyframing,† said Tim Wilson, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Avid Technology, Inc. “Avid customers benefit from the combination of the richest core nonlinear editing toolset and the innovative solutions that the AVX developer community provides.† Continuum Complete AVX offers powerful integration features including built-in motion tracking, the ability to apply multiple filters to keyed elements or titles without affecting the background. Hundreds of presets and integrated online help provide fast and precise effects creation with a minimal learning curve. When paired with multi-processor and OpenGL acceleration, Continuum Complete AVX 4.0 provides a powerful, complimentary feature set for Avid editing systems.
