    Here is a screen grab of Avid FX and Boris Red to show the difference between the two.
    A Logo and a name - that's all.

    Good to know that after learning Avid FX, I can keep with the interface by using Boris Red. LIke this blog says,

    "workflow is best served by staying within the Avid Media Composer, Avid FX is a huge addition to my toolset."

    The question is how long is this offer open ? I'm sure I read that Avid FX will continue to work, so no need to spend money just yet .. Unless this is a very limited time offer.

    edit, this is probably what I read on the KB:

    "A:  Sorenson Squeeze functions outside of Media Composer software, so a change in software versions will not affect its functionality. Applications that work within Media Composer (Boris Continuum Complete, Avid FX, and NewBlue Titler Pro) should still continue to function. Always check with the manufacturer of the third party application about software compatibility and testing prior to making purchasing decisions."

    So pretty vague using the word "should" !

    Optionally, you can "rent" 2.5 years of After Effects for the same price.

    I will cancel all my Adobe subscriptions at once and take that offer instead, could you please post me the link, 10 dollars / month, I want that

    Oh man, I should never post this early in the morning.  Embarrassed  It's $20/month, got it backwards. (Still not a bad deal)  Apologies.  Let me see if I can still correct my earlier post.

    I was liking having Avid FX inside of MC but I guess for the same $295 you can do After Effects Transfer

     "New to Version 3, the Avid to After Effects workflow allows for direct import and translation of Avid AAF format files. " 

    http://www.borisfx.com/XML-Transfer/

     

    Have to check that out.

    You don't need XML Transfert.

    If you have After Effects CS6, you can use the option "Pro Import After Effect" to import your Avid AAF directly in After Effects.

    With CS5 or 5.5, you can use the now free Automatic Duck plug-in.

    Re: Avid FX in Media Composer v8?

    I've been torturing myself with this problem for ages. But I discovered that the latest version of Avid FX (ie 6.4) is still available on the Download Center. If you're running this version of AFX, it will work with Avid 8.8.

    I had 6.0.1 and Avid kept crashing when you tried to use the plugin. It doesn't anymore. That's all I wanted, to go on using the software I'd always used and effectively paid for with my previous Avid purchase. No need to upgrade and pay more cash for something that's perfectly fine as it is. And finally, solution found.
