Digital Juice® has announced the release of Animated Canvases(TM) Collection 04: First Impressions. Animated Canvases are subtle background animations that are designed to be the starting point for any video or motion graphics project. In the new Animated Canvases(TM) Collection 04, video editors and motion graphics artists will find a wide-range of subtle background animations specifically designed to highlight and frame text and images using a sophisticated mix of colors and textures.
“The Animated Canvases product line is not about customizable layers and lots of motion elements,” says David Hebel, CEO of Digital Juice. “It’s about giving your text, your videos and your ideas the perfect foundation to come alive and project your message against a subtle supporting backdrop. No more staring at an empty timeline hoping for inspiration. This exciting new library of subtle animated backgrounds provides a diversified library of powerful starting points for your next motion graphics creation!”
The animations in this library feature a variety of styles, colors and textures ranging from a peaceful field of wheat swaying in the sunset, to the grungy look of road construction stripes pulsing and blurring from the vibrations of a jackhammer, to the playful look of colorful balloons released into the sky — to name just a few of the many useful and creative looks in this package. All the designs feature an artistic use of color, light and motion that makes them interesting and attractive to look at on their own, yet subtle enough not to overpower any text, video or images an editor may add to communicate a message to his or her audience.
Users will find 41 loopable pre-rendered SD and HD animated QuickTime files in Animated Canvases Collection 04: First Impressions. The average length of an animation in this collection is 15 seconds and the format is compatible with all non-linear editing tools on both Mac and Windows platforms. “In this package, you get an interesting animated graphic base and a creative nudge to get your ideas flowing and your project moving,” says Hebel. “Animated Canvases provide an environment that enhances your video and text and makes your material stand out.”
