The Boris FX AAF Transfer (Mac) is a custom plug-in for the Mac OS that allows you to export AAF files from FCP (Apple Final Cut Pro) sequences and import them into Avid Media Composer.
Images and video clips can be transferred while preserving alpha information, while entire live FCP program sequences can be transferred along with media, markers, cuts, dissolves, filters and audio. In addition, BCC (Boris Continuum Complete) filters and transitions along with keyframed changes that are applied to clips in the FCP timeline are also retained during transfer. With this plug-in, sequences can be edited and completed in the Media Composer or DS timeline without having to export files back to FCP for editing.
Using the Boris AAF Transfer software, you can translate many of Final Cut Pro's Motion Tab features that include basic motion, crop, opacity and speed. You can also convert FCP's built-in text generators into Avid Title Tool effects. Many of FCP's time-based effects are supported by the AAF Transfer plug-in.
