Here’s a news story about the XEffects News Graphics plug-in from our good friends over at Idustrial Revolution and FxFactory. You know exactly what these look like because you see them all day long on TV monitors in airports, restaurants, hotel lobbies and in the comfort of your own home. Check out this sample of what News Graphics ($49) can do:
This plugin makes short work of all kinds of ubiquitous news graphics standards including tickers, bugs, DVE, picture in picture and more.
Some specific features:
- Six preset color palettes in every template or choose your own
- Use any font, any color, any size
- Build In & Out animations on templates to choose between cuts & adjustable animations
- Many display options and positioning on every template
- Shrinkback effect controls all video DVE moves without key-framing
- Not locked in to a single template, layer many elements on top of each other
- Color shaded background, transition & title wipe included
- 4K Ready
We came up with this shot in just the first couple of minutes of playing around with the plugin:
You’ll find the Shrinkback effect in the FCPX Effects Browser:
and everything else in the Titles Browser:
Settings are very simple and easy to use:
If you’re doing any sort of project that requires news graphics you want this plugin. I can see it being useful for corporate videos, news shows, online streaming and more. Sure you could make these kinds of things on your own in Motion if you really wanted to…
…. but why waste days of your time when all the hard work has already been done for you. Go grab XEffects News Graphics instead for just $49. There’s also a free trial and tutorials available here: http://www.idustrialrevolution.com/x7-news-graphics
