The upcoming release of Boris RED 3GL with the Matrox Parhelia digital video workstation graphics card allows users to expand their workspace across two computer monitors and simultaneously previewtheir effects output on a broadcast monitor through a unique What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get (WYSIWYG) plug-in available from Matrox. The Parhelia card also allows users to take advantage of RED 3GL’ssupport for OpenGL hardware acceleration for performance previously unseen in an integrated 2D and 3D compositing and effects application.
Offering the industry’s first Dual-display plus TV-output support on a single AGP graphics card, Parhelia provides Boris RED 3GL users with the most productive environment for visual effectscreation. This functionality is crucial when working with multiple windows and extended timelines. Using Boris RED’s built-in video out capabilities through the Matrox Parhelia and WYSIWYG plug-in,users can preview their 2D or 3D compositions full-screen on a video monitor to check for safe title area, proper color temperature and any interlacing artifacts prior to rendering.
RED 3GL is the first integrated 3D compositing, titling, and effects application for non-linear editors to take advantage of OpenGL hardware acceleration, the cross-platform standard forhigh-performance graphics. RED’s adoption of OpenGL delivers unprecedented performance at an affordable price to over twenty non-linear editing applications. RED 3GL offers customers an expandedcompositing and effects environment with many new filters, tools, and technologies to maximize their creative potential.
“Boris FX has a long, prosperous relationship with Matrox, and we are delighted to see the fruits of this latest effort,” says Boris FX founder and president Boris Yamnitsky. “As the product namesuggests, RED 3GL makes extensive use of OpenGL for exceptionally fast, flexible and powerful 2D and 3D effects creation.
