Laguna Beach, CA (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
Final Cut Pro X special effects manufacturer, Pixel Film Studios, announced the release of ProTypo, a keyframeless kinetic typography plugin for Apple's Final Cut Pro X.
"Our goal lately has been to remove keyframes from the editing experience in Final Cut Pro X," Said Christina Austin, CEO of Pixel Film Studios, "ProTypo is the perfect complementary FCPX plugin to ProPath and ProRack to create keyframeless animations and movements."
Kinetic typography is the art of animating and moving text in a video to keep the audience visually interested while expressing an idea. Now with ProTypo from Pixel Film Studios, users can create a kinetic text sequence quicker than ever.
Editors can say goodbye to keyframes while making kinetic typography. Users can simply move and animate their kinetic sequence by entering text and moving it to where they want the camera to go. ProTypo does the rest. Users can even rotate the text and the camera movement will do the same!
Filmmakers can add up to 20 phrases in a single text animation. Then they can scale, position, rotate, and stylize each phrase and then watch as the 3D camera glides, zooms and rotates from phrase to phrase. They can also slow down the overall animation by stretching out the generator or use the built-in controls to slow the time spent at each word.
Final Cut Pro X users can add visuals to their text by placing a photo or clip in one of the designated placeholders; then, move the image to where they want it by using the position controls found in the FCPX Inspector. Editors can scatter small images throughout the animation or even place a large image or clip as the backdrop for the entire animation.
ProTypo was designed by the team at Pixel Film Studios to work seamlessly inside Final Cut Pro X. Users can place the text animator in the timeline, adjust the length, customize the placement and look of the text, and prepare to be amazed as the ProTypo plugin does the rest.
