BORIS FX Glitter

Continuum Complete 5's Shining Freebie By Ko Maruyama
If you've been using Avid, Final Cut, or After Effects for any amount of time, you probably know the Boris FX filters, but in the event that you've missed them, Boris wants you to check out their glittery offering from the Continuum Complete set.    In other news, Boris now offers sparks for Autodesk products.  The glittery plugin is great, but you might notice a couple of gotchas.  This might help.

I tried out the Boris FX free plugin because their plugins generally have a ton of attribute parameters to play with... and hey, it's free to use in your projects.  There are a couple of really nice features within Glitter.  One of the features that is really nice is the ability to set a velocity value without having to keyframes a position offset.  (Of course, if you want to do that, you can).

This isn't really a review article - just a quick tip video to show you how to get around some little gotchas that might pop up in our Boris FX Glitter Project.

Head over to Boris today to download the free plugin.  It's a limited offer, so you'll want to do it as soon as possible!
