What's new in boris Red v5.5.2

  • Automatic generation of a text track and background video reference track speeds titling workflow in Avid hosts.
  • Window layout with a focus on titling provides you with instant access to the RED vector title generator in Avid hosts.
  • New Multi-filter controls enable the filtering of RED titles or compositions by BCC or FEC filters independently of the background video track in Avid hosts. RED now shares the same multi-filter stack support that BCC and FEC offer which allows preserving alpha channels between separate effects.
