Boston MA â€“ May 21, 2008 â€“
, developer of visual effects tools for the postproduction and broadcast markets, today announced that partner Idustrial Revolution (
) has released CoverFlux, a brand new â€“ FREE – FxFactory FxPack plug-in for Apple Final Cut Studio 2.0 and Apple Final Cut Express 4.0 applications. Much like the image carousel effect seen in Apple iTunesÂ® and the new Apple OS X 10.5 LeopardÂ® finder, CoverFlux dynamically displays user selected images in 3D proportionally fanned across the screen with reflections and transparencies. The CoverFlux FxPack automatically calculates the stack and fan while providing comprehensive controls for adjusting about any element of the display including, perspective, animation, and text.
â€œThe CoverFlux NAB sneak preview created quite a buzz at our stand this year. This new FxPack is ideal for anyone showing a series of stills – whether they are broadcast designers working on promos or prosumers editing their home movies,â€? comments Niclas Bahn, director of business development, Noise Industries. â€œPeter Wiggins from Idustrial Revolution continually pushes out new ideas and products that enhance the effects production workflow for Apple professional video applications users in incredibly unique ways.â€?
CoverFlux FxPack users can select up to 25 images to display with corresponding title information. Images display with reflection and the ability to move in 3D during animation. CoverFlux FxPack parameters are highly customizable and allow users to control speed of the animation as well as color, size, text, rotation, and drop shadow details. Because the CoverFlux FxPack plug-in is resolution independent, it renders with stunning image quality.
