Boris Calligraphy: First OS X-Native TitlerFinal Cut Pro generators offer 2D and 3D effects
Calligraphy itself includes two title generators--Title Crawl and Title 3D. Title Crawl is designed to provide automated roll and crawl effects. Title 3D provides vector-based text effects that can be manipulated in 3D space with control over pivot, transformations and automated tracking. It can also be used to create static slates that can then be animated in real time on Final Cut Pro systems that support realtime.
According to Boris, both generators share a common interface--text entry window and style palette. The palette provides formatting options like leading, kerning, tabs and text wrap, as well as controls for fill, stroke and shadow. We will be bringing you previews of Calligraphy's titling capabilities next week, which will also be the time when Boris announces upgrade pricing options.
