    Boris RED 6?

    When releasing RED 5.5, Boris anounced that there is a version 6 coming later in 2014 (with free upgrade for 5.5 buyers), though there is no word about it since. Has something changed?

     

    I wonder if the issue with lack of properly working lighting effects will be finally fixed, especially Lens flare - the Open GL versions of these effects have unsolvable problems with transparancy, that makes these useless in ceratain situations leaving you with no lighting effects at all. I remember I lost a whole day while testing RED and trying to do a certain effect, befeore I realized that I'm not doing antything wrong and this is simply a 'feature' :)

     

    The other annoying issue was no option to properly export content when working outside of Avid: no QT export, AVI limited to 2 GB, leaving only the Targa files option, that was slow as hell.

    Why don't you ask them?

     

    I too upgraded to RED 5.5, largely because of the promise of a free upgrade to the next-gen version.  Sure...it isn't here yet, but I assume that Boris will make good on their promise whenever it's ready.  I assumed the upgrade was to coincide with Avid's 4K features ...which weren't even publicly available until Dec 31.  This is a probable reason it didn't get released before end of year.

    Hello Marianna,

    It is so good to have your presence back on the forums again.  I hope (as do we all) that your surgery was successful and you are on the mend.  Stay well and take good care of yourself.

    All the best of health and happiness.

    Re: Boris RED 6?

    At a recent Boris Webinar (for BCC) the question about a release date for Red update was asked. It was answered with a gentle tap dance and followed with "it was being worked on and they hoped it would be out before the end of the year."

    This is reply today from Boris

    Hello, I am told that RED 6 is in development. However, no release window has been set.

    Seems Red is not a priority - can you imagine Avid failing to update with such a lengthy period.

    Re: Boris RED 6?

    RED v5.5 is still for sale on their web site, but at last week’s online seminar I asked and was told that Continuum Complete 2019 has essentially incorporated RED’s functionality. I don’t know if this means that they’ve stopped developing RED altogether, but it certainly looks like they’re more focused on Continuum and Sapphire.
