With the installation of Studio 18 64 bits, many of our old Boris Graffiti 32-bit plugins no longer function. After a delay, Boris-FX finally suggested we use a plugin modified from its RED program. I had the opportunity to test it in December 2014 and frankly, I wasn't very happy (complicated installation, EULA Frenchified but incomprehensible, interface greatly changed, incomplete translation of menus, user manual in English that does not always correspond to plugin, RED remnants in window titles and no standalone version shipped with the plugin), all for $69.

On two occasions, I have had the opportunity to use the Boris Graffiti Character Generator in tutorials. This time we will go a step further by creating a digital alarm clock that works like a real one. First of all, in this Boris Graffiti tutorial, you will learn to create this digital alarm clock and make it work. Then, in a second Studio 17 tutorial that will be published later, we will see how to use this digital clock in Studio to create a fixed close-up on a bedside table. But let's start at the beginning by creating our digital alarm clock in Boris Graffiti Keyframer. Later we will look at Studio.

Many users have purchased the PE CameraPOV plugin from Pinnacle. Unfortunately, this plugin that is very useful for those who have it, is no longer supported by newer versions of Studio.. Do not fret any longer as we will try to fill the void left by this unusable plugin by using other means at our disposal in the new versions of Studio.

In a previous tutorial (adaptation of an existing Boris Graffiti effect into a text transition), we saw how to create a text transition effect starting from an existing effect in the Library Browser of Boris Graffiti. Now, I will show you how to create a text transition effect from scratch. Creating this effect won't take very long and it is not difficult, but it does require a good knowledge of keyframe manipulation that we detailed in our previous tutorials.

You know the principle of most Boris Graffiti effects : an effect reveals in one way or another a text on the screen and makes it disappear in the same reverse way or otherwise. In its library, "Library Browser", Boris Graffiti also features 8 effects "Animated text transitions". These effects show a first text, make it disappear then display a second text to finally make it disappear. Such an effect is actually a transition between two texts but can also be likened, in some cases, to morphing.

On several occasions, we have made freely available files. GRF in our Download-Tutorials page.

Each time, I had stated in the tutorial : "This file contains no preview or animation, unlike files. GRF that are provided in the library of Boris Graffiti. It is therefore not advisable to copy in the library of Boris Graffiti, you would have neither the preview nor the animation of the effect". So this tutorial will allow you to create your own preview and your animations in order to include your effects in the library of Boris Graffiti.

On several occasions I had the opportunity to explain that the plugin Boris Graffiti integrated in Studio does not allow to map an image on a text. By forcing Studio to work with Boris Graffiti, I had demonstrated in a tutorial they could still do so. This stage reached, it was the final step, namely to get a map image or a video on an object. He had to go to the obvious : it was not possible. Not possible, unless you happen to find a tip...

At the very beginning when we tested the Boris Graffiti plugin, we noticed that it was impossible to use one feature mentionned by the user manual: it is impossible to map an image onto a 3D text extrusion because Studio does not support this feature. I told myself that one solution should exist.... Here it is !

A few months ago a user wanted Studio 12 to insert a counter in his video. He did not know what to do and asked the question on the forum. At that time, I did not yet know enough about Boris Graffiti to offer a "Graffiti" solution. Fortunately, at the time others had been able to properly advise the poster of a few choices of plugins that were available for download on the Internet.

Today, this is what I would have advised him if I had already had the time to dig into Boris Graffiti ...

Today, I will talk to you about creating a scrolling credit. You know the vertical one that you usually see towards the end of the film?

You think that Title Deko already makes one that way and you are absolutely right. But the credits that I am suggesting are somewhat out of the ordinary and have some features that Title Deko cannot make. In particular, these credits will not be centered, will be on a colored rectangular background with rounded corners, will not emerge from the bottom of the screen and will disappear before the top of the screen and finally, it will include a blurred area at the beginning and end of the text.

Previous Boris Graffiti tutorials were designed to be playful while illustrating the basic concepts and vocabulary of the software. Here, we return to the main use of Boris Graffiti which is to produce a title. If you really want to use titles that nobody has even thought of yet - let alone integrated into a video, then there is a solution ... create your own title effects.

It seems I have said to you that Boris Graffiti was much more than a titler. However, the first tutorials were all devoted to animated titles with some special effects. So it's time to show you some creative uses of this titler.

I propose this time to awaken a pride of lions in the early morning, on the savannah ...
The spotlight on your 4x4 vehicle will accomplish this feat.

All of this text, consisting of two pieces, will then disappear to the right of the screen. Of course this does not exist in the Boris graffiti library, this is YOUR effect...

If you have gotten Studio 12 Ultimate, you must add the Boris Graffiti plug-in included in the video effects. Graffiti is more than just a titler. Obviously it can make static and animated titles of all types, both 2D and 3D, but it can also add filters, film that burns, writing styles like Star Wars, ripple effects, spirals, ... In short, many things.
