Top New Features in FX 9
^^ User Interface Improvements
Many new improvements have been made to the user interface of FX. User customizable quick key buttons in the timeline, new machine controls in the composite window, magnetic and sticky windows, a non-modal options palette and a tabbed interface for the Controls Window eases compositing and effects generation.
^^ New electronic Help System
A brand new fully searchable electronic help reference system has been added to FX, meaning that you spend more time creating effects and less time figuring out how to do it.
^^ All New BCC Filters With Custom Preset Manager
The original filter effects in FX have all been replaced with the more powerful filters from the Boris Continuum Complete package and the number of effects filters that ship with FX 9 has been increased to a total of 115. The list of filter effects includes blurs, particles, glows, distortions, volumetric lighting, film effects, keys and matting, and procedural generators such as snow, rain and clouds.
^^ FEC Filters
Several filters from the Final Effects Complete package have been included with this latest release of FX. Use FEC Hair to make shapes appear to grow hair along the edges, or FEC Drizzle to make the image appear as though it was reflected in a puddle of rain. FEC Glass can be used to make an image appear to have been cut from glass. Generate kaleidoscope magic with FEC kaleida. Create organic dissolved with FEC Blobbylize.
^^ Keyframe Effects Directly In The Composite Window
Now you can generated keyframed effects right within the composite window, without the need to see the master timeline. Select an element in the composite window by clicking on it and the keyframes associated with that object appear in the mini timeline included in the composite window. Keyframes can be added and directly manipulated right in the mini timeline.
^^ Static Generator for Sony Vegas 7
Users of Sony vegas 7 will now be able to use FX as a static title generator, meaning less rendering and faster effects creation.
^^ New Library Browser Templates from Effects Guru Steve Oakley
Industry effects guru Steve Oakley, a long time Boris advocate and digital effects compositor / editor, has contributed dozens of new keyframed effects which are included in the FX Library Browser.
^^ 16 Bit Color (host dependent)
16 Bit deep-color provides the user with the ability to generate smoother gradients and more precise color correction via an expanded color palette, which expands the available color gamut from 16 million in 8 bit color to trillions of colors. The result is that gradients are far less prone to mach banding or color stepping. 16 bit color in FX is host dependent and will only work in hosts that support this feature, such as Avid systems.

^^ Minimum Memory 512MB
^^ Minimum Hard Drive Space 200MB free
^^ Supported graphics card with 32MB VRAM recommended
