Demos & Presentations

Boris FX product team members are available for group and one-on-one demos at partner AMD’s Booth #N1015 (view map of North Hall). The team will demonstrate the Boris FX Suite’s significant speed improvements when used in combination with the latest release of Adobe After Effects and AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO Processors.

Results may vary based on individual plugins, frame size, etc. The full Boris FX Suite benefits from the blazing-fast combination of Adobe After Effects Multi-Frame Rendering (MFR) and Threadripper PRO, including the flagship 64 core AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5995WX.   

Sapphire plugins showcase the most impressive speed gains. Sapphire 2022 is 50% faster on average when used with Adobe After Effects MFR and AMD Ryzen Threadripper Processors (compared to previous versions of After Effects). Specific Sapphire plugins, such as Hollywood’s favorite Sapphire S_Glow, can render up to 67% faster. Learn more about AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO Processors.
