Boris FX has released version 6.0.1 of the After Effects version of Boris Continuum Complete. The BCC 6.0.1 AE update adds a new EPS extrusion filter as well as a new anti-aliasing option for the BCC 6 3D Objects category of filters.
The new Extruded EPS filter offers a way for users to import and extrude layered vector logos and graphics in Adobe After Effects. The filter includes integration with the After Effects 3D camera and lighting system and incorporates the same 3D material presets and free-form deformation properties of other BCC 6 AE 3D Objects filters.
The filter is capable of tracking an EPS file using a Watch Folder, making the EPS file “live” should it be edited in Adobe Illustrator. A Keep EPS Color feature lets operators preserve the original fill colorus for each element as a diffuse colour option of the material.
The 'Smooth Edge' antialiasing option for BCC 3D Objects filters enables users to refine the edge smoothness of any BCC 3D Objects filter for more natural compositing against high-contrast backgrounds.
Existing BCC 6 AE customers can download the BCC 6.0.1 AE update for free from the Boris FX website.
