Top New Features in Graffiti 6

  • User Interface and Workflow Enhancements
    Enhancements include 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 via either a side-by-side view or a live split-screen view.
  • New Light Rays Filters
    Filters produce stunning volumetric lighting effects such as Rays, Radiants, and Rings.
  • New Glint, Glitter, and Glare Filters
    New Glint, Glitter, and Glare filters generate glittering sparkles and specular highlight effects, ray bursts, and sharp catchlight reflections that are fast-rendering and easy to apply to titles.
  • New Final Effects Complete filters
    New Final Effects Complete filters include Wiggle Edges, Burn Edges, and Sparkle Edges for organic text treatments and 3D Relief and Vector Blur to achieve stylized looks.
User Interface Improvements

Many new improvements have been made to the user interface of Graffiti. User customizable quick key buttons in the timeline, new machine controls in the composite window, magnetic and sticky windows, a non-modal options palette and a tabbed interface for the controls window eases title effects creation.

EPS Import and Extrusion

Scalable vector art can now be imported directly into Graffiti. Users can add, delete or modify the original spline points right within the Graffiti interface and the result can be extruded and animated in 3D space. The advantage to working with scalable vector art is that unlike raster art which is pixel based, vector art never suffers a loss in quality when it is resize or scaled. Most company logos are generated in this format.

16 Bit Color (host dependent)

16 Bit deep-color provides the user with the ability to generate smoother gradients and more precise color correction via an expanded color palette, which expands the available color gamut from 16 million in 8 bit color to trillions of colors. The result is that gradients are far less prone to mach banding or color stepping. 16 bit color in Graffiti is host dependent and will only work in hosts that support this feature, such as Avid systems.

 

All New BCC Filters with Custom Preset Manager

The original filter effects in Graffiti have all been replaced with the more powerful filters from the Boris Continuum Complete package and the number of effects filters that ship with Graffiti 5 has been increased to a total of 35. The list of filter effects includes radial blurs, particles, glows, distortions and procedural generators such as snow, rain and clouds.

d

FEC Filters

Several filters from the Final Effects Complete package have been included with this latest release of Graffiti. Use FEC Hair to make text appear to grow hair along the edges of the title, or FEC Drizzle to make the title appear as though it was reflected in a puddle of rain. FEC Glass can be used to make text appear to have been cut from glass.

 

Keyframe Effects Directly in the Composite Window

Now you can generated keyframed effects right within the composite window, without the need to see the master timeline. Select an element in the composite window by clicking on it and the keyframes associated with that object appear in the mini timeline included in the composite window. Keyframes can be added and directly manipulated right in the mini timeline.

 

New Library Browser Templates from Effects Guru Steve Oakley

Industry effects guru Steve Oakley, a long time Boris advocate and digital effects compositor / editor, has contributed dozens of new keyframed effects which are included in the Graffiti Library Browser.

 

Resolution Independent Vector Text

Text created in Graffiti using the vector text option remains razor sharp at any scale. This become important when dealing with titles that change size at different points along the timeline, for instance when letters appear to pop on or off the screen from behind the camera. Raster based text will display visible artifacts when scaled but because the text in Graffiti is vector based, it is always sharp.

 

Advanced Type-On Title Animation

Graffiti includes some very powerful type-on controls for generating animated titles which makes it very easy to create eye catching animations. Make titles appear to pop in to the center of the scene from behind the camera or slide in from left or right. Add jitter to the color or position of a title or page of text.

 

Text On a Path

Text can be animated along a user generated vector path in Graffiti. Options include the ability to set the angle of the letters along the path, the position of the letters on the path and the justification of the text along the path. The reverse path option flips the text upside down along the path. Motion blur can be added to the text for added realism.

 

Automated Rolls, Crawls, Fades, Zooms

The Title Container in Graffiti automates the chore of creating rolls, crawls, faces, zooms and shuffles. With unlimited pages of text per container, built-in DVE controls, background generator, 27 composite mixable modes with built-in color correction tools and of course motion blur, creating titles has never been easier.

 

35 Filter Effects Including Several FEC Filters

The original filter effects in Graffiti have all been replaced with the more powerful filters from the BORIS Continuum Complete package and the number of effects filters that ship with Graffiti 5 has been increased to a total of 35. The list of filter effects includes radial blurs, particles, glows, distortions and procedural generators such as snow, rain and clouds. In addition to this several filters from the Final Effects Complete package have been included with this latest release of Graffiti.

 

Support for 3rd Party AE Plug-in Filters

Most filters 3rd party After Effects filters can be used in FX, and thereby the editing system into which FX is plugged into making it easy to use some of your favorite AE filters in the host editing environment. A complete list of the supported filters is available on the support section of the BorisFX web site.

 

3D Shapes such as Cylinders, Spheres and Cubes

Graffiti includes the ability to map generated text onto 3D objects such as cylinders, spheres and cubes. These objects can be manipulated in 3D space with controls for camera, lights and motion blur. Each of the objects has it's own unique features, such as the ability to disassemble a cube over time or unwrapping a cylinder or sphere over time. You can even map text onto a page turn shape and peel back pages of text to create flip-book style text animations.

 

3D User Modifiable Spline Primitive Shapes

Several spline primitive shapes are included with Graffiti and all of these shapes can be filled, stroked or even extruded into 3D objects. The extruded objects can also be reflection, texture and bump mapped for added realism. Every aspect of the shapes can be modified by the user; points can be added, deleted or manipulated just like any other bezier spline shape.

 

3D Text with Textures, Reflection Mapping, Materials and Lights

Any 2D text object can be extruded and converted into a 3D object in Graffiti. Reflect the background track onto the 3D text that is above it, or add a separate texture track to the text or use bump mapping for added photo-realism. The position, orbit and pan camera controls make it easy to animate the 3D object in 3D space and the depth of field option emulates the out of focus ranges of real camera lenses.

 

2D and 3D Chart Generator with Import Feature

The Chart Generator in Graffiti enables users to enter data in a spreadsheet format via the built-in chart editor, which is then converted into flat or extruded graphical charts. Charts can take on the form of pie, bar, line and filled and can be animated and revealed or removed in a true 3D environment. Graffiti charts can also be generated from imported user data, which was saved in Microsoft Excel format.
