Press Release: Boris FX Releases Sapphire 2021.5 with Native M1 Mac Support

The mid-year update adds powerful M1 support, Adobe After Effects multi-frame rendering support, and introduces a new trendy transition pack by award-winning director/editor.

Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A — May 5, 2021 — Boris FX Sapphire, the Emmy Award-winning visual effects suite, is now available with native Apple M1 support. The 2021.5 update represents a major step forward for artists who rely on Macs to add photorealistic visual effects to film, television, commercial, and streaming projects.

“Apple’s breakthrough M1 technology delivers lightning-fast speeds to Macs — a must-have for today’s post-production turnarounds,” states Boris Yamnitsky, Boris FX President and Founder. “Artists will love working with Sapphire’s renowned creative effects natively inside M1 technology. Get ready for supercharged workflows that save tons of time.”

Sapphire 2021.5 New Features:

  • New! Native support for M1-powered Macs
  • New! Adobe After Effects multi-frame rendering support (currently in Adobe public beta)
  • New! Better speed and interactivity for the Sapphire preset browser
  • New! Improved Sapphire PanAndZoom with added internal image cache and enhanced functionality (Avid Media Composer only)
  • New! Lens Flare presets

Sapphire’s PanAndZoom effect received a significant upgrade primarily due to suggestions from customers like award-winning veteran freelance editor Jonathan Moser. “It’s great to know that the team at Boris FX takes the time to listen to their customers and cares about making our lives easier,” says Moser. “I’m so happy with the improvements to Sapphire PanAndZoom. It will save a lot of editors a lot of time.”

“Sapphire has a long history of listening closely to feedback from the community and doing our best to incorporate those changes and make a better product,” says Brian Fox, Director of Product Marketing. “When Jonathan reached out and explained the limitations of the old Sapphire PanAndZoom workflow, I knew this was something we could help with.”

Sapphire 2021.5 is available as a plugin for Adobe, Avid, and OFX hosts including, Autodesk Flame, Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve and Fusion Studio, Foundry Nuke, VEGAS Pro, and more. Purchasing options include permanent licenses, upgrades, and annual/monthly subscriptions.
