Considering that some people here (looking at you, Simon ;-)) think about making plugins based on the needs or discussions they see on this forum:
am I the only one who would like to have a plugin to animate a clock or the passing of time?
We get that request a lot from clients, and Motion only has a couple of things for it (and I like plugins because people who are 20 times better in Motion can make it better and prettier) and Pixelfilm. As expected, the controls and limitations of the Pixelfilm plugin makes it not the best option (we bought the Volume 1 of that Pro-Timer plugin).
So if anyone is listening, Simon, MotionVFX, who-ever: I think it would be great to have a plugin for having different kinds of animations for animating time and/or clocks. If someone has tips for plugins that exist for Motion or FCPX that I don’t know, they are welcome.
Yeah I do, although I mean more in an animated clock-way.
Like a customer wants a video for: keep this product 5 minutes cold or something. And you want a clock that animates. And I always could do it in the end, but there never was an easy plugin to make this. It was always a combination of multiple stuff that made it very time-consuming to make a nice animation.
Yeah, that’s the one I talked about. I have it, but as often with Pixel-film, using the plugin leaves a lot to be desired. So I’m kind of hoping someone else with better products (Ripple Training, Motion VFX, Hawaiki, …) will make one that has the same concept, but a much better execution.
Since much of PixelFilm seems to be based on “ideas” created elsewhere, I was looking for an “origin” and unfortunately not finding one. Perhaps contact Niclas Bahn at Noise Industries (FXFactory) since a few of the names you mention are all partners.
