Need custom titling/animated sidebar effect, similar to Pardon the Interruption
on Apr 18, 2017 at 9:40:31 pm

Hi all,

I’m looking for a titling plugin — compatible with Final Cut X — that would mimc ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption.

Screenshot here: https://sportstvratings.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/PTI-February-3-2015....

Basically, I’d like to be able to have an animated sidebar “rundown,” as well as a lower third. Do you guys know of anything? Any help you can provide would be much appreciated!

I happen to be currently developing some titling effects for Final Cut Pro which I hope to release and offer for sale in the near future - so I'm already in that "mode" - and so I just took a quick stab at creating something like you describe. Here is a screencap movie (warning, no audio) of it being shown in FCP http://kingluma.com/pardon_the_interruption_title.mp4 and here is a link to download (and see install instructions for) the title effect http://kingluma.com/PTI_title_installation.html - As you can kind of see in the demo video there are basically 2 parameters you're likely to need to keyframe ; one parameter that progresses through the different show topics, and another parameter which uses the Date/Time generator to do the timer countdown for each show topic. Hopefully it's useful to somebody... and if not, at least I learned a couple new things while making it : )

Thanks so much for taking the time to build this!!! I will be able to make some use out of this! Out of curiosity, what did you use to create that?

Apple Motion ;

BTW, while watching my demo video just now it occurred to me that there was no good way to change the font or other basic properties of the lower 3rd titles, and so I just updated it so those titles (like the sidebar was already) can now be directly edited (onscreen and in the text inspector) to allow for that - so if you downloaded the zip already, you could go back and download it again to get the now slightly improved version...

FYI - I've heard from several people that the title effect that I created and posted in response to this thread crashes FCP now - and I have confirmed this. Some unknown change in more recent versions of FCP X / Motion has made it so much of the title effect work I've previously done crashes and the project files cannot be opened. Very frustrating and disappointing. I reported this as a bug to Apple ;

crash bug opening an FCP title created in Motion

FYI - Apple updated the bug record indicating they believe the bug is resolved and so I checked to confirm it and indeed the bug that was causing this title to crash FCP or Motion seems fixed as of last week's updates to FCP and Motion. So if you download this title template it should work now.

Love the show, great work on this plug-in ☺
Maybe I'll give it a try for the fun of it.
