Noise Industries has released Photo Montage, a still animation plug-in powered by FxFactory. It presents users with more than 100 animated presets, 20 transition styles, easy re-ordering and re-timing options, and built-in motion blurring features for animating any type of still image within Apple Final Cut Pro, Motion, Final Cut Express and Adobe After Effects.

Noise Industries’ new plug-in helps users string together images, titles, transitions, and more for a presentation that creates an animated medley of still photos; no keyframing is required. Photo Montage’s array of effect parameters “allows both novice and expert users to create eye-catching animations that exceed even the most demanding clients’ creative needs,” says Niclas Bahn, director of business development, Noise Industries.

In Photo Montage, no keyframes are required for animation. You can set durations for pause and transition, and leave the hard work to the plug-in. There’s support for a variety of image formats, including JPEG, PNG, and PSD.

With Photo Montage, you can customize the order and duration of each photo without spending time renaming files or resizing tracks on the timeline. You can assign titles to each image and customize how and where these titles appear in the final output.
