Boris Plug-Ins to Support Apple’s New Plug-in Architecture Integrated Solution Provides Advanced Visual Effects In the Apple® Motion® Interface

(PRWEB) April 20, 2005

Boris Plug-ins to Support Apple's New Plug-in Architecture Integrated solution provides advanced visual effects in the Apple® Motion® interface

NAB 2005, Las Vegas, NV (Booth SL 4045) - Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated effects technology for video and film production, today announced that an upcoming release of Continuum Complete (BCC) will support the new FxPlug SDK. FxPlug is a visual-effects plug-in architecture developed by Apple's Professional Applications group. Apple Motion is the first application to provide support for the FxPlug SDK. FxPlug dynamically extends the visual effects supported by Motion.

Continuum Complete is a comprehensive suite of native plug-in filters and transitions for Adobe® After Effects®, Adobe Premiere Pro®, Apple Final Cut Pro®, Apple Motion, Discreet® Combustion® and Boris Red systems. Motion delivers high-performance, real-time motion graphics design and integration with Final Cut Pro and DVD Studio Pro. Motion's built-in effects are also developed with this SDK architecture. BCC currently integrates with Motion, using the Adobe After Effects plug-in architecture.

"We've already developed expertise with OpenGL hardware acceleration in our existing solutions," said Boris FX founder and president Boris Yamnitsky. "We look forward to the significant performance enhancements that we can provide using the FxPlug SDK."

The FxPlug SDK is compact, yet powerful. It lets developers create unique CPU-based effects or hardware-accelerated effects that leverage technologies such as OpenGL, CoreGraphics, or CoreImage. The FxPlug SDK can be used to create two types of effects, video filters and video generators. A filter operates on an input video image to output a video image; a generator does not require an input image.

Continuum Complete lets users create compelling imagery with more than 150 filters that complement Motion's native capabilities. Continuum's three-dimensional compositing environment, includes tumble, spin and rotate, animated lights and perspective camera. The Z-Space filters allow objects to intersect, interact with lights and cast shadows on each other. A suite of Film filters provide sophisticated Grain management. Temporal effects feature state-of-the-art optical flow technology to smoothly retime clips.

The Continuum product line consists of Continuum Complete, Continuum Complete AVX and Continuum for Discreet Sparks. Continuum Complete is for users of Adobe® After Effects®, Adobe Premiere Pro®, Apple® Final Cut Pro®, Apple Motion and Discreet® combustion® and Boris Red® systems. Continuum Complete AVX is for users of Avid® nonlinear editing systems. Continuum Complete for Discreet Sparks® is for users of Discreet Inferno®, Fire®, Flame®, Flint® and Smoke® systems.

Continuum Complete and other Boris solutions will be demonstrated at the National Association of Broadcasters Convention (NAB) 2005 in booth SL4045 in the Las Vegas Convention Center April 18-21, 2005. Apple will showcase a wide range of solutions, including three prototype Continuum filters that uses the new architecture, in booths SL1902 and SL1914.

Continuum Complete 3.03 is available immediately through the BorisFX worldwide reseller channel and direct through BorisFX for $ 795 US SRP. The next release of Continuum Complete will add support for the new plug-in architecture. The Continuum Complete plug-ins support both Windows and Mac OS X systems.

eReflect Provides More No-Cost Spelling Improvement Exercises and Lessons

New York City, NY (PRWEB) January 12, 2014

eReflect has always been a proponent of distributing no-cost quality content for people who either don’t have the time to purchase spelling improvement software or those who cannot afford one. The latest mini-guide on how to improve spelling skills through a series of five simple steps has now been made available to everyone by eReflect, through This guide’s aim is to offer a rudimentary basis for understanding the complexities of learning to spell and how spelling improvement actually takes place.

The first step towards spelling efficiency is being aware of any personal weaknesses. Knowing the weaknesses that slow down learning, and identifying strong points that will improve the study process, helps ensure that the learner will be able to emphasize those areas that need it the most. For instance, many people find it hard to spell homonyms such as their, they’re and there, or cannot figure out when the “i before e rule” applies and when it doesn’t. So if the learner knows that they tend to omit the often unpronounced letters in adverbs such as completely and basically, spelling them as completely and basically, focusing on paying attention to this habit will help, through practice, teach the correct orthography once and for all.

Apart from the advice to practice spelling through games, flash cards and other spelling activities, this guide draws spellers’ attention to their visual memory and how it can facilitate learning to spell and improving writing skills. A word's spelling is visually stored in the brain, so by taking advantage of this brain feature a person can quickly become better at spelling because they can visually recall accurately any word’s spelling no matter its difficulty level. Many people cannot tell if they got a word’s spelling correct unless they write down that word and look at it. What this actually means is that a person tends to draw on their visual memory to judge whether a word has been spelled correctly. eReflect hopes that these and other tips in their new five-step spelling improvement no-cost guide will help more people become better at spelling and writing.

First, ensure that the desk is sufficiently close to the power points. Secondly, the wood used to build the desk should be strong and durable like oak or cherry. As solid wood expands and shrinks with changes in humidity, care should be taken to allow space for changes in dimension while attaching the main components. Maximum gluing surface should also be provided for more strength.

The number of storage shelves required should be planned in advance and some space should be provided for attaching more shelves for future expansion. If the CPU is to be put in a closed space, there should be sufficient ventilation inside. Retractable keyboard trays free up space on the desk and also help to keep the keyboard free from dust.

eMazzanti Provides Business Hot Line For Java Security Threat Fix

Hoboken, New Jersey and New York City, NY (PRWEB) January 20, 2013

Last Thursday, according to an InfoWorld January 18 article entitled: "Why the Java Threat Rang Every Alarm," the US Department of Homeland Security called on computer users to disable Java because of concerns about the susceptibility of the Java programming language to cyberattacks. The potential damage could be widespread as there are more than 3 billion Java users worldwide. eMazzanti Technologies is providing a Java-Threat Hotline for businesses that would like to disable Java or install the recent software security patch from Oracle, the owner of Java. The hotline is for businesses-only: 1-201-360-4400

While there are Internet tips on how to unplug Java for each brand of browser and how to install the security patch, most businesses will want to make sure specific procedures are followed to avoid causing network wide problems, said Carl Mazzanti, chief executive officer, eMazzanti Technologies. eMazzanti has created a free Java-Threat Hotline to quickly evaluate what steps a small business should take to protect itself.

Whats the Problem?

Java is a programming language and computing platform at the heart programs including utilities, games, and business applications. Java runs on more than 850 million personal computers worldwide, and on billions of devices worldwide, including mobile and TV devices. Further, it is required by some Web sites that use it to run interactive games and applications.

The Java vulnerability appears to operate with all popular web browsers including IE9, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, etc.

Cyber crooks are attacking a previously undiscovered security hole in Java 7 that can be used to seize control of a computer if a user visits a compromised or malicious web site, said Mazzanti. Businesses need to get the right fix in order to avoid trouble.

Even if a business is using Java 6, there are some conflicting reports that this vulnerability existed in earlier versions of Java that may go back several years. Though Oracle tried to fix this issue in a previous update, it appears it did not address the vulnerability completely.

The vulnerability is accessed through exploit packs which are crimeware tools being sold on the black market. The tools are made so they secretly integrate into web sites where unknowing visitors with vulnerable or outdated browser plugins like Java can silently install malware on the users PC.

About eMazzanti Technologies

With a company name that sounds more like a purebred, high-performance sports car than a IT support and consulting firm, eMazzanti Technologies is all about delivering powerful solutions in a variety of Outsourced IT services, such as cloud computing, managed printing services, PCI DSS compliance, computer network management, network troubleshooting, business continuity and disaster recovery, green computing, mobile workforce technology, information security, cloud computing, cloud computing services, and business information optimization in the most efficient manner possible.
