Dave GageCable News Moving Background Template?
by on Aug 7, 2014 at 12:13:39 am

I'd like to create a motion background similar to what you see on cable news shows with shapes, color patterns and show name very slowly moving in the background and then cycling through. I would use it for instruction tutorials instead of keying out the blue screen and adding a still photo as the background.

Does anyone know of a template we could start with? (And then I could say "yes" to your question.)

Thanks,
Dave

Mark,

I only saw one template there that was close, but it didn't knock me out as it's too news oriented. I'll take a closer look at some of their other templates and elsewhere and see if anything else will be usable.

Thanks,
Dave

What about the News set of generators, transitions, and title titles built into the Themes Browser in FCP X?

Excellent thought, and I hadn't actually looked in there in awhile. But, I didn't see any News generators, only transitions and titles. It's not a huge deal, I can always use a still photo to key out for the background as I have in the past. I was just looking to do something a bit more "modern" looking. Also, my son has time to learn Motion, so he's been playing with it and may be able to come up with something from scratch.

Thanks again,
Dave
