A Comprehensive Collection of Visual Effects Filters

Final Effects Complete delivers a collection of effects plug-ins for leading nonlinear editing and compositing solutions. Ranging from graceful blurs and edges to radical warps and particle generators, FEC dramatically augments your creative arsenal without forcing you to learn a new application.


Highlights

FEC 5 takes full advantage of many technologies found in BORIS Continuum Complete. Features such as PixelChooser, Motion Tracker, Preset Loader and Online Documentation – hallmarks of BCC filters – are now included with FEC, too.

Final Effects Complete was the first filter set ever developed for Adobe After Effects in the early 1990s. Version 5 represents a major re-write by the Boris development team, preserving the unique looks of the package while improving performance and modernizing the UI. FEC 5 AE is fully compatible with all previous versions of Final Effects Complete released by Cycore, MetaCreations, and ICE.

New UI

The new modernized native parameter UI sports new control groups, contextual controls, on-screen widgets, custom controls and many other improvements. All parameter options are now readily available as native parameters without a need to open modal dialog windows.

MP Acceleration

All filters have been optimized from the original version to take full advantage of multi core and multi processor computing platforms. The overall speedup varies from filter to filter. These examples are based on a 3 second DV clip rendered in Adobe CS3:

FEC Mr. Mercury, tested on Power Mac Dual 2 GHz G5, 1 Gig RAM

FEC 4 – 24 sec.
FEC 5 – 18 sec.

FEC Smear, tested on Win XP, Pentium 4, 3.0 GHz, 2 Gig RAM

FEC 4 – 55 sec.
FEC 5 – 38 sec

PixelChooser Technology

Most FEC 5 filters feature the award-winning Boris PixelChooser where appropriate. PixelChooser is an internal method of selectively applying the image processing to the image based on criteria defined by the user. The criteria may vary from color channel information to simple geometric shapes to spline-based masks available in After Effects. This method is superior to layer duplication and masking because it is more flexible and efficient. The mask can be applied to various stages of pre and post processing. The parts of the image not chosen by the mask remain untouched by the filter.

Multitude Of Standard Presets

As any BORIS product FEC 5 ships with over 800 pre-saved presets for quick new looks. Custom presets can be saved and shared between multiple workstations and even emailed to other users.

Extensive Filter Enhancements

FEC 5 AE adds new features and improvements to every one of the 108 filters in the set.

Highlights include:

  • Auto-animation in many of the transitions
  • Extensive new controls in FEC Hair such as the ability to generate curly hair instead of just straight hair as well as the ability to modulate the gravity direction across the image based on a gradient map
  • New FEC Bubbles controls for drift direction, particle randomness, and source texture mapping pinning. In addition, FEC Bubbles now includes a Deflector point to create regions with no bubbles.
  • Much better lighting controls in Mr Mercury, Blobblylize, Glue Gun, Glass, and Ball Action
  • Two new particle types in Particle Systems II – Advanced Sphere and Advanced Lens. These new particle types allow you to generate different looking spheres with more extensive lighting control.
  • New bend styles added to the FEC Bender menu

Final Effects Complete 5 FxPlug is a set of 100+ visual effects filters re-designed for Apple's FxPlug plug-in architecture, providing seamless integration with Apple Final Cut Pro and Motion. FEC 5 FxPlug adds new support for 16 bit-color processing and takes full advantage of FxPlug for a big performance boost including unlimited RT filters and native Final Cut Pro transitions. The same FEC filters are recognized by Motion and run within Motion's accelerated GPU environment for improved compatibility and flexible workflow.  One of the first plug-in packages released for Adobe After Effects, the heart of Final Effects Complete is its ability to generate full-featured two-dimensional and three-dimensional particle animations including ball action, explosions, distortions, jet trails, hair, liquid mercury distortions, spotlights, and color transitions.

Final Effects Complete 5 After Effects is a ground-up re-write of the legendary Final Effects Complete filters by the Boris FX development team. With a modernized user interface, multi-processor acceleration, and 16-bit color processing, the famous Final Effects Complete filters are ready for the creative minds of the 21st century. Well known for the unique particle treatments of Mr. Mercury and Bubbles, the creative distortions of Griddler and Flo Motion, the eye catching, stylized effects of Mr. Smoothie and Glue Gun, and the excellent edge treatments of Sparkle Edges and Wiggle Edges, Final Effects Complete remains the hidden secret behind many award-winning projects. While borrowing many new technologies from Boris Continuum Complete, FEC 5 AE remains compatible with all previous FEC versions released by Cycore, MetaCreations, and ICE.
