Whether it was Kevin P. McAuliffe talking about what it was like to work the Rampant Design booth at NAB 2015 or Monica Daniel explaining why the Rampant Design tools have made her life as an editor that much better, we’ve had no shortage of information around how these tools are impacting the industry. Professionals love the possibilities these tools create and open up for them.
Those possibilities are going to be increased even further with today’s announcement around the expansion of style effects that will give those same professionals many more options and choices. The full press release is below.
Rampant Design today announced it is continuing to crank out hundreds of new 2K, 4K and 5K custom designed Style Effects, exponentially increasing its library of ultra high definition visual effects and designs. With this announcement, Rampant is adding more than 800 HD Style Effects, including film burns, overlays and motion graphics for editors.
Additionally, Rampant offers hundreds of free samples of each effect, enabling customers to try them in their post production software of choice. Rampant Design Style Effects are not plug-ins and therefore, are not platform dependent. They work on all editing software platforms, and because they are packaged as Quicktime files, artists can simply drag and drop any Rampant Style Effects right on the timeline, instantly creating stunning, ultra high definition looks and effects.

Deb Eschweiler is a freelance editor in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. She began editing just before the dawn of desktop computing, so she’s seen a lot of change in the industry over the past few decades. Her projects run the gamut from large format video projection mapping projects to live event and corporate video, with a sprinkling of series work to keep things interesting.
Deb edits on Avid, FCPX, Final Cut Pro Classic and Premiere Pro; and she also uses After Effects and Motion for graphics work. She finds content and element developers like Rampant Design Tools indispensable when working on smaller-budget projects that can’t afford a full graphics team.
Deb added, “”I’m your market. I don’t have those skills, but my clients expect me to provide at least a minimal amount of graphic support. Or if I have the skills, I might not necessarily have the time to create something from scratch. Budgets are smaller, deadlines are tighter, everything is smaller. Except client expectations. Those are growing!”

Rampant Design creates visually stunning Style Effects for anyone in post production looking to add visual effects design to their video, but who may not have the time, budget or expertise to create their own visual effects. By providing entire libraries of Style Effects deployed by simply dragging and dropping onto a timeline, Rampant Design is providing a simple and cost effective way to create professional effects at the highest image quality possible.
