Features such as BCC's Pixel Chooser and the integrated Motion Tracking add an immense amount of creative flexibility while the new preset save and load functions allow effects to be shared across workstations, platforms and editing systems. A phenomenal extension of the effect options which are further enhanced with comprehensive online help and factory installed standard presets... and this is just a taste of what the release offers," comments Boris Yamnitsky, founder and president, Boris FX.

Contextual tools and onscreen widgets streamline effects workflow while the multi-processor acceleration increases the FEC package performance by up to 30%.
