Reprinted from a Boris press release:
Boston (March 26, 2002) - Boris FX, the leading developer of integrated graphics and effects technology for the television, broadcast, post production, and multi-media markets, today announced shipment of Boris GRAFFITI 2.0, a major upgrade to their award-winning graphics and titling application, the only integrated vector-based titling package on the market.
GRAFFITI 2.0's vector tools allow easy creation of sophisticated animations such as text on path, with exceptional sharpness. Along with flexible animation tools such as Type On and Title Containers for auto-animated rolls, crawls, fades, shuffles and zooms, GRAFFITI 2.0 allows users to map text to 3D shapes, and extrude and composite in three dimensions. GRAFFITI 2.0 also supports the addition of third-party Adobe After Effects filters.
Feature highlights in Boris GRAFFITI 2.0 include:
Vector Text provides razor-sharp clarity at any scale, as well as the ability to export animations to .swf (Flash)
Expanded Title Animation lets you animate both the path shape and the text position for Text on Path over time. "Type On" features one click type-on animation of progressively applied skew, tumble, spin, rotate, scale, opacity, and position to a text page, alone or in combination, so individual characters can easily fly/spin/fade/zoom/shuffle on or off the screen.
Third Party Plug-ins from many leading packages developed for Adobe After Effects can now be used with all NLE systems supported by Boris GRAFFITI 2.0. They appear in the Boris GRAFFITI Filters menu, and behave like any other Boris filters.
