If found it hard to find video tutorials related to the Boris FX and Graffiti plugins specifically for Lightworks.

I've started this thread for all who are interested in sharing or discussing applications and workflows which are possible with the Boris package for Lightworks.

This video covers "Adding Spline Objects to Titles & Text" using Boris Red on AVID host.


The workflow should be possible with Boris Graffit for Lightworks.

.. A "Spline Object" can be used to create masks which can be applied to video tracks for compositing.
A keyframed Spline Object is the basic tool to create moving masks (rotos) using Boris FX without Mocha (which isn't included in Boris FX package for Lightworks).

Maybe you should re-edit your topic title a bit to avoid any confusion

Sure. Instead of "Borsi FX Talk" you may change it to "Boris FX Talk"

A good place to start is the tutorial page at Boris.

And they have a channel on Vimeo.

I find the official channels organized pretty chaotic and unstructured. Most of the workflows I've watched there so far are not applicable to Boris FX and Graffiti versions delivered with Lightworks (even used stand alone), or at least not easy to adapt.

Lightworks seems to be the forgotten host.

That could be because that version of Boris Fx is no longer in active development.

I’ve played around with Boris plugins a bit and believe the included package helps creating fancy things which aren’t easily creatable with Lightworks alone, especially nice looking titles and moving masks with complex shapes. I'll continue posting tutorials which I found understandable and applicable. The next two:

Boris Graffiti 6.1--- Video In Video +3D Extrusions


Boris Graffiti 6.1 --- Text Bursting into a FIREBALL or SMOKE



I hope others might find and post helpful information for beginners too, maybe even showcases of the making of some self made effects?

Right.

With the recent purchases of Mocha and Sapphire, Boris seems to be focusing on its development of Continuum and integration of Mocha throughout the BCC and Sapphire product lines, along with updating all 3. that's already a lot to have on their plate.
