Been lurking for a few weeks and finally decided to join in.
I'm building videos for a client who wants a Youtube like status bar across the bottom, so viewers are visually aware of how much longer the video will play. I've mocked something up in Motion, but exporting it as .mov leaves black that has to be cropped/keyed, and using the .motn file takes forever to render.
Anyone know of any plugins that look like what I'm trying to create?
It will be viewed in a break room on a tv. Whatever media player they are using does not have the status bar popup on the bottom. I've worked something out for it using Motion, but it isn't as "drag and drop" as I'd like - since Motion requires that you set up the length of the project when you create a new project, I have to open the "template" that I made, copy all the elements, open a new project with the set time that I'd like, then add in all the other stuff.
