iMovie Typewriter / Computer for Mac

By cf/x $5.50

Developer's Description

This iMovie plug-in simulates a typewriter or computer Ã?â??printingÃ?â?? on your clip. Rather than simply displaying a text message, this plug-in visually writes the message letter for letter. Please note that this is an effect plug-in, not a title (we believe that iMovieÃ?â??s title controls are inadequate for the task). It will therefore also happily run with iMovie 3. The plug-in will emulate anything from a simple typewriter to a computer, complete with various cursors, with or without a background.

Special controls allow you to time the messageÃ?â??s writing speed to

* use from 0%-100% of the clipÃ?â??s duration
* use exactly n frames for the whole message
* use exactly n frames per character

additionally, this plug-in allows you to

* place the message anywhere you want
* interactively set font size with the mouse
* choose any installed font
* choose any font color
* use a background panel with any color
* use 100 different levels of transparency
* choose between three different cursors (none, I-beam, hollow, solid)
* fine-tune cursor flashing speed (0 to 100 frames)

what should I use it for?

this is a captioning / annotating plug-in. use it for

* chapter/scene titles
* locations in documentaries (e.g. Ã?â??zÃ?¼rich, 12:00 amÃ?â??)
* special messages and/or comments (e.g. Ã?â??important!Ã?â?? or Ã?â??do not forgetÃ?â??)
* mock computer messages
* final / closing remarks (e.g. Ã?â??the endÃ?â??, Ã?â??to be continuedÃ?â??)
* etc.
