What is the .RED File Extension?

.RED File Extension Description:

Files with the .red file extension are project files created from Boris Red, the only software integrated with a full suite of tools such as 3D and 2D titling, compositing, effects, paint, and rotoscoping to extrude and create vector objects, 3D animation and creation. Boris Red is designed specifically for editors because of its unprecedented range of features as standalone engine for rendering.

Boris Red can be launched as a standalone application or can be installed into host applications such as Adobe Premiere, Adobe Final Cut Pro, Avid Systems, Vegas Sony Digital Pictures, Canopius Edius, Avid Liquid, and Velocity. Once installed, Boris Red incorporates the look and feel of NLE (Non-Linear Editing) for smooth transition and user interaction, and fully supports 16-bit color image processing which gives the images files trillions of colors.

Boris Red has a Library Browser that allows you to quickly preview and apply the settings from the KeyFrame Library, including the files with the .red file extension that you add, create, or customize. This KeyFrame Library is actually a good collection of automatically installed preset effects with the installation of Boris Red.

The KeyFrame Library stores the files with the .red file extension along with the effects applied to them. These files can be saved with thumbnail images, which appear in the Available Effects window when the effects are selected. If the file with the .red file extension was saved without a preview, no preview image is associated with that thumbnail. However, thumbnails can still be created using the Thumbnail button in order to preview and apply the effect to the saved files with the .red file extension.

Selecting the Save Preview option can also create animated thumbnail preview of the effect. After naming your effect, you must add the RED file extension to the selected settings. Mac users don't have to add the RED file extension; however, adding the suffix makes your settings cross-platform (can be used on other operating systems). Selecting the Save Preview feature saves the animated thumbnail of the files with the .red file extension, which can be viewed later in the Library Browser.
