[prMac.com] Boston, Massachusetts - Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated effects technology for video and film, has announced Final Effects Complete 6 AVX (FEC 6 AVX). FEC 6 AVX brings 110+ designer effects and transitions to Avid Media Composer 6, Symphony 6, and NewsCutter 10. The release features new transitions, audio-driven effects creation, and a new Compare Mode feature that enables editors to compare the filtered result with the unfiltered source via either a side-by-side view or a live split-screen view. Each Final Effects Complete AVX filter has been re-engineered for 64-bit operating systems.
"FEC 6 AVX brings the legendary Final Effects Complete visual effects suite to 64-bit Avid editing and finishing systems," commented Boris Yamnitsky, president and founder, Boris FX. "Loaded with particle effects such as Mr. Mercury, Hair, and Bubbles and text and edge treatments including Wiggle Edges, Burn Edges, and Sparkle Edges, FEC AVX gives Avid editors access to filters used day in and day out by Adobe After Effects artists."
Final Effects Complete 6 AVX New Feature Highlights:
* Support for 64-bit Avid editing and finishing systems. Final Effects Complete 6 AVX supports Avid Media Composer 6, Symphony 6, and NewsCutter 10.
* Compare Mode. Added to many FEC 6 AVX filters, Compare Mode enables editors to compare the filtered result with the unfiltered source via either a side-by-side view or a live split-screen view. In the side-by-side view, users can view the unfiltered and filtered image result as changes are made to the image. In the split-screen view, users can drag the wipe bar anywhere across the image to compare the filtered result with the unfiltered source at any zoom level. Additionally, Compare Mode offers the unique ability to view the filtered result with a live filtered layer in the timeline.
* Beat Reactor Technology. Beat Reactor lets editors sample specific bands of audio from a clip and use the sampled audio levels to drive FEC effect parameters. This new technology makes it easier to generate audio-driven effects such as a pulsing light or an image wipe that follows along with the beat of an audio track.
* On-Screen Overlay Widgets. New on-screen overlay widgets allow editors to make precise parameter adjustments while keeping their eyes focused on the source image.
* New Transitions include Super Dissolve, RGB Dissolve, and Rectangular Scale Wipe.
* Significant Performance Gains. Every FEC 6 AVX filter has been optimized for improved rendering speed on modern computing platforms.

FEC 6 AVX is available immediately through the Boris FX worldwide reseller channel and direct from the Boris FX website for an MSRP of $895 USD. For a limited time, owners of Boris Continuum Complete 8 AVX can add FEC 6 AVX for an MSRP of $100 USD.
