News: All-New Animated Canvases Offers Editors A Fresh Start
Digital Juice Releases Animated Canvases™ Collection 05: Fresh Starts with Instant Download and Boxed DVD Product Options
(Lake Mary, Florida--May 4, 2012) Digital Juice® has announced the release of Animated Canvases™ Collection 05: Fresh Starts, available as either an Instant Download or boxed DVD product. Animated Canvases are subtle background animations that are designed to be the foundation for any video or motion graphics project. In the new Animated Canvases™ Collection 05: Fresh Starts, video editors and motion graphics artists will find an eclectic mix of subtle background animations specifically designed to highlight and frame the user’s own text, video and images using a sophisticated animated mix of colors and textures.
“This exciting library of unique and subtle animated backgrounds jump starts your creativity so you are no longer left staring at an empty timeline hoping for inspiration,” says David Hebel, CEO of Digital Juice. “Instead, you can choose one of these powerful animations as the creative base for your next motion graphics project. Unlike our more complex Editor's Toolkit or ready2go animated backgrounds and projects, the Animated Canvases product line is not about customizable layers and lots of motion elements. It's about giving your text, your videos and your ideas the perfect subtle supporting backdrop on which to project your message.”
In the all-new Animated Canvases Collection 05: Fresh Starts, users will find a variety of styles, colors and textures ranging from a dreamy blue background showered with soft and subtle particle effects and a vibrating stereo base speaker thumping and bumping to the beat - to a cheerfully framed background accented in puffy white clouds and pastel flowers, 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 44 pre-rendered SD and HD animated QuickTime files in Animated Canvases Collection 05: Fresh Starts. 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.”
