BOSTON — Boris FX (www.borisfx.com) will be offering tech demos of the newest versions of Sapphire, Continuum and Mocha at this year’s 2018 NAB Show. The Academy Award-winning tools found in Mocha Pro, Mocha VR, Sapphire, and Continuum will feature a new Essential Interface Mode to help editors and VFX artists solve tracking and masking challenges in less time. Mocha Pro and Mocha VR will be updated in 2018 with an improved interface, new tools for rotoscoping and mask creation, and speed improvements in object removal and clean plating.
The company will also be offering special technology previews of the Boris FX Suite 2018 and App Manager, which bundles the company’s three most popular plug-in tools — Sapphire, Continuum and Mocha Pro —on one license with cost-effective pricing and subscription options, as well as the Boris FX App Manager, a new utility that unifies licensing and application management for all Boris products.
Also, the popular motion graphics and particle animation system Boris FX acquired from GenArts, Particle Illusion, is being relaunched with an updated user interface, additional new emitter libraries and fast GPU speeds. Original founder, Alan Lorence, joins the Boris FX team as the product manager. Particle Illusion will be part of Continuum 12 and the Continuum Particle Unit to be released later this year.
