Marlborough, Mass. - Boris FX, a developer of integrated effects technology for video and film production, has released Boris Graffiti 5.0.
Boris Graffiti 5.0 is a 2D and 3D vector title animation plug-in solution that integrates with industry standard non-linear editing systems. Boris Graffiti 5.0 is based on the new Boris Red 4.0 release offering a new user environment, exceptional compositing and effects creation tools, and industrial strength processing.
“Boris Graffiti is used by thousands of creative professionals – becoming the “go the tool” for cross-platform titling and vector graphics creation. The release of version 5.0 raises the creativity capabilities with powerful features such as EPS import and an ergonomically enhanced UI,” says Boris Yamnitsky, founder and president, Boris FX.
