Broadcast editors and artists attending IBC in Amsterdam will receive an exclusive sneak peek at Boris FX’s upcoming 2020 releases of award-winning VFX plugins Sapphire, Continuum and Mocha Pro. The 2020 versions will be available later this year with support for Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro, Avi, and OFX hosts including Autodesk, Blackmagic Design, Foundry and VEGAS Pro.
The combined effort of the Boris FX development team is ushering in a new era. The 2020 releases add OpenColorIO (OCIO) support for Sapphire and Mocha Pro with Continuum to follow suit. The long-requested feature gives customers the ability to maintain a proper colour pipeline when using Boris FX plug-ins, eliminating common third-party plug-in colour issues.
“Colour management is a crucial component of every piece of content we produce at Industrial Light & Magic,” says Jeroen (J.) Schulte, global imaging supervisor at Industrial Light & Magic. “Traditionally, plugin-based creative workflows could often be a stumbling block in a feature film VFX pipeline, so we are excited that Boris FX has decided to add OpenColorIO (OCIO) support to Sapphire 2020 and Mocha Pro 2020.”
