Boris AAF Transfer v2 Now Available: New Avid to Final Cut Pro Workflow

Bidirectional Sequence Transfer Tool for Apple Final Cut Pro and Avid Editing and Finishing Systems


Boris AAF Transfer gives you a set of two Final Cut Pro plug-ins for transferring sequences between Final Cut Pro and Avid editing and finishing systems. One of the plug-ins exports Avid-compatible AAF format files from Final Cut Pro to Avid. The other plug-in imports AAF format files from Avid to Final Cut Pro.

Unique Boris AAF Transfer advantages include:

•  Boris Continuum Complete Support. Transfer BCC filters and transitions that were applied to clips while retaining all of the keyframed changes. The BCC filters are seamlessly transferred as long as the corresponding BCC effect is present in the host application where the transferred sequence is opened.
•  Avid DS Compatibility. Boris AAF Transfer can exchange live program sequences between Final Cut Pro and Avid DS – with media, markers, cuts, dissolves, filters, and audio preserved. Boris AAF Transfer also supports Avid Media Composer, Avid Symphony, and Avid NewsCutter.
