Is Boris RED is a plug-in or a standalone application?
When you purchase Boris RED, you receive RED as a plug-in as well as a standalone application (the "RED Engine"). Many customers use the RED plug-in for creating complex transitions in their video editing timeline while using the RED Engine for multi-layered composites and complex title animations that do not require timeline video. With RED, you're not limited to one workflow — integrated effects creation — or the other — standalone effects creation. RED offers the ability to create effects inside the timeline of a video editing application where it's easiest, then lets you export those effects for rendering in the standalone RED Engine when it's convenient. It's up to you.
How is using Boris RED different than using a standalone composting application?
Boris RED is available directly inside your editing application. This allows you to avoid the challenges and potential frustrations of exporting media from your editing application, to other external applications, only to return the finished effects back to your editing application. With RED, all effects creation takes places inside your video editing application - and you only have to render once.
Is it easy to get started with Boris RED?
Boris RED reduces your learning curve for building effects to virtually zero by offering a diverse collection of over 1,500 customizable preset effects. View animated previews of every effect in RED's Library Browser, quickly accessible via a button in the RED timeline. Preset effects can be customized and combined with other effects. The customizable presets allow you to use new features right away - while gaining expertise to build your own. You can add your own presets to the Library at any time.
