New in RED 5.5
RED 5.5 adds a variety of sophisticated filters and tools, including an upgraded user interface.

Avid Compatibility
RED 5.5 has all the features of RED 5 but also offers compatibility with Avid.

User Interface and Workflow Enhancements
RED 5.5 includes ergonomic, drag-and-drop panels and a curve editor for smooth parameter animation. In addition, many of the included Boris Continuum Complete and Final Effects Complete filters include a new Compare Mode feature that lets you compare the filtered result with the unfiltered source in a side-by-side or live split-screen comparison. In a side-by-side comparison, you can view the unfiltered and filtered image result in the composite window as changes are made to the image. In split-screen view, you can drag the wipe bar anywhere across the image to compare the filtered result with the unfiltered source at any zoom level.

Support for 64-Bit Video Editing Applications
RED 5.5 adds support for 64-bit video editing applications such as Adobe Premiere Pro CC.

Image Restoration Tools
Smooth and soften skin imperfections and remove jaggies, DV compression artifacts, and unwanted noise from image clips with Smooth Tone, fast-render Pixel Fixer, multi-processor accelerated BCC Noise Reduction, and DV Fixer.

Achieve high-quality SD to HD conversions while minimizing the data loss that is usually associated with resizing media in a host application. The UpRez filter includes several advanced image processing algorithms to enhance the sharpness and smoothness of the final result.

3-Way Color Grading
A new 3-Way Color Grade filter gives you a professional color grading process complete with three custom color wheels for pedestal/gamma/gain adjustment. The filter includes built-in masking and keying tools to isolate areas of secondary color correction. Separate color grading can be applied to the inside and outside of a mask, eliminating an extra compositing step.

Effects Filters
  • 40+ Final Effects Complete filters
  • 50+ transition effects created using Continuum Complete and Final Effects Complete filters
  • Two 3D particle effects filters (BCC Particle Array 3D & Pin Art 3D)
