Appendix A. Working with Boris FX for Compositing

Appendix A. Working with Boris FX for Compositing

One of the best pieces of software you can add to your system is Boris FX. Built as a compositing program, Boris FX integrates with Avid Xpress Pro seamlessly. The term composite simply refers to building layers of images to create one complete effect or clip. Other popular compositing programs include Adobe After Effects and Discreet’s Combustion.

This appendix explores two basic features of integrating Boris FX with Avid Xpress Pro—using Boris FX to create a transition and how Boris FX works with layers that can be built in Boris FX or inside Avid Xpress Pro. This appendix doesn’t cover Boris FX in great detail due to the fact that it is such a rich compositing and titling program (it could have its own book). If you want to learn Boris FX as a stand-alone program, try the tutorials in the Boris FX manual, visit the website at www.borisfx.com, or enroll in one of the Boris FX courses offered at numerous Boris FX training centers.
