Boris FX is well known for quality tiling tools and the Mamba FX community will surely appreciate the Graffiti toolset. The collaboration will bring the capability to design and create advanced 2D/3D motion graphics and title animations directly inside of Mamba FX.”
SGO also announced at IBC that Mamba FX customers will receive a free upgrade to the new version 2.5 of Mamba FX which will also include Graffiti at no cost (offer currently available for Windows only, from October 2015).
