BORIS FX showcase at NAB

Another great year for BORIS FX By Ko Maruyama

BORISFX has announced some great news for NAB.  With the NABShow just around the corner, it is exciting to see what video effects companies are offering artists this spring.  Also at NABShow, attendees get an opportunity to see professional skills showcased and shared throughout the hall.

As someone who works in motion graphics and visual effects for multiple types of broadcast video, I'm always excited to see what tools companies announce at the National Association of Broadcasters Show in Las Vegas.  I'm even more excited to see the professionals who are using these tools and demonstrating what they can do with them.

This year, Boris FX will be giving us a peek at some of their current tools as well as some new tools that they're debuting.

One of the plugins that is both new and old is Particle Illusion, a wonderful GPU powered particle generator.  Ahead of its time, Particle Illusion has been around for several years, but is going to be repackaged as part of Continuum 12 and the Continuum Particle Unit. 

Check out for more information.  Going to NABShow? Stop by the booth and see Alan Lorence and some of the other talent who are on stage in the Boris booth.

Boris FX will be showcasing major new versions of the industry's premier plug-ins - Continuum, Sapphire, and Mocha - in connection with the brand new 2018 Boris FX App Manager at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), April 9-12, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada (Booth SL7620)

New! Boris FX Suite 2018 and App Manager: The industry's three most popular plug-in packages (Sapphire, Continuum, and Mocha Pro) will be bundled together on one license with cost effective pricing and subscription options.

The Boris FX App Manager will be a new utility that unifies licensing and application management for all Boris products.

New! Particle Illusion: The popular motion graphics and particle animation system Boris FX acquired from GenArts, is being relaunched with an updated user interface, additional new emitter libraries, and blazing 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.
