      Boris Red

      Our production house uses Boris RED 4.3 which has an acceptable interface as direct plugin to Edius. Once you understand what needs to be done for Boris to be used for compositing, it works quite smoothly. It's worth a try.

      Here is the homepage:

The general opinion is that other products After Effects / Combustion etc are either dying or do not have a future in the film industry.

        Then she starts talking technical and loses me :))

        P.S. Dont shoot the messenger, this is what I have been told.
        The film industry uses Nuke and Shake for compositing, ie, adding new plates, removing wires, etc.

        After Effects is used for film openings, commercials, etc.
        There are plenty of companies who only rely on After Effects as their main application.

        Check out to see what kind of stuff AE is used for.
