Noise Industries has announced its latest FxFactory freebie plug-in pack, Manifesto. The titling plug-ins provide new and current FxFactory users with a way to generate titles in Apple Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express, Motion and After Effects. Manifesto comes in two variants: a static title generator and a title roll/crawl generator.
With Manifesto, no keyframes are required for animation. The text of choice is scrolled in and out of frame automatically based on the length of the generator track. This feature also lets users match a title roll (or crawl) to the duration of a different clip.
Manifesto can reference an existing RTF file on disk, allowing users to rely entirely on an external program for text input and layout. Users can create animations at any frame rate with built-in motion blur and the ability to reduce interlacing artifacts. You can use external media to determine which portions of the title are visible, or vice versa.
Manifesto is offered as a free download via the Noise Industries web site (http://www.noiseindustries.com/fxfactory/manifesto/). FxFactory Pro is available for US$399. Additional plug-ins are available for free or commercially starting at a price point of $29.
