in Multimedia (F)

[] Boston, Mass - Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated effects technology for video and film, today announced Boris XML Transfer Version 2. Boris XML Transfer is an Adobe After Effects plug-in designed for seamless transfer of Apple Final Cut Pro program sequences to After Effects. The plug-in preserves all aspects of a Final Cut Pro project including effects, audio, media clips, transitions, and geometric transformations. Version 2 has been fully re-designed for 64-bit platforms and provides support for the forthcoming Adobe After Effects CS5 release.

Boris XML Transfer Feature Highlights:

* Clips Remain Fully Editable. All trimmed Final Cut Pro clips remain fully-editable in After Effects as stepped-up or stepped-down layers. Audio levels, pans, and cross-fades are accurately preserved and effects settings and keyframe animations are fully translated.

* MultiCam Editing. Boris XML Transfer takes special care to preserve multi-clip edits.

* Boris Continuum Complete and Final Effects Complete Compatibility. BCC and FEC effects provide the same look and keyframe values for every parameter.

* Native Final Cut Pro Effects Translation. Many native Final Cut Pro effects are translated into corresponding After Effects features that match the effects' look and behavior.

* Familiar Look and Feel. Translated After Effects projects will look very familiar to Final Cut Pro editors. User marks, comments and labels for clips and sequences, and all user-defined names are carried across from Final Cut Pro to After Effects.

* No Transcoding or File Duplication Required. QuickTime-based media files are immediately available in After Effects without the need for transcoding or file duplication.
