Boinx Software, a multi-award winning software developer for the Macintosh platform, is pleased to announce the release of FotoMagico 3.5, the gold standard for animating still images. FotoMagico , winner of two Apple Design Awards, amplifies its functionality in version 3.5 with new plug-in support for Apple Final Cut Pro®, Final Cut Express®, Motion® and Adobe After Effects®. The native plug-in integration allows videographers and motion graphic artists to animate still images and render with flawless results directly within the host applications, eliminating workflow disruption and time-consuming key frame adjustments.
Leveraging development partner Noise Industries’ innovative FxFactory Plug-in Platform technology, Boinx Software expanded the FotoMagico workflow to include plug-in support for After Effects and Final Cut applications. “Animating and manipulating still images within an editing application can be quite tedious. It is a task that just about every editor will have to do…more than once,” says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO, Boinx Software. “By partnering with our friends at Noise Industries, we can offer seamless integration with host applications and let videographers animate still images within the Final Cut, Motion and After Effects environment. Not only is this a tremendous timesaver, it is a huge creative workflow enhancement. FotoMagico’s extensive features give artists much more control over the image animation and ultimately a better finished product.”
