Digital Anarchy Announces Text Anarchy 2.0 for Simplifying Text Character Animation
Powerful New Version of Elements of Anarchy: Text for After Effects and FCP Users
San Francisco, CA – April 2, 2003 —
Digital Anarchy, a leading provider of cost-effective special effects software for Adobe, Apple and Discreet products, today announced the availability of Text Anarchy 2.0 for After Effects and Final Cut Pro. Dramatically expanding upon the most popular features of its award-winning Elements of Anarchy: Text Filters, Text Anarchy 2.0 simplifies the process of creating and animating text and increases the creative opportunities for broadcast designers, compositors and typographers.
Digital Anarchy will be showcasing Text Anarchy 2.0 at NAB 2003 in booth SL 2618.
“Since text is one of the most difficult things to animate, we were continually getting requests from our customers to expand the Elements of Anarchy filter set,” said Jim Tierney, president and founder of Digital Anarchy. “Where the previous filter set was designed for creating background text elements, Text Anarchy 2.0 is intended for projects where text is the main component of the design, which makes the creation of complex text animation significantly easier.”
Text Anarchy 2.0 is composed of eight versatile filters that provide specific methods for producing a wide variety of text effects, ranging from animating set text in motion to individual letters. For instance, some of the filters use particle systems specifically designed for text, while others allow the animation of characters on a letter-by-letter basis or by using paths to control the look and attributes of the text.
The filters within Text Anarchy can also use almost any TrueType or Postscript Type 1 font, which allows designers to expand their repertoire of text effects for creating complex designs faster.
Key features in Text Anarchy 2.0 include:
