FXFACTORY DEVELOPMENT PARTNER YANOBOX RELEASES SEMANTIC VISUAL EFFECTS PLUG-IN FOR FINAL CUT STUDIO AND AFTER EFFECTS
Yanobox Nodes playfully fuses graphics and text for the creation of modernistic designs and 3D animations
Boston, MA – May 11, 2010 – Noise Industries, developer of visual effects tools for the post-production and broadcast markets, announced that development partner, Yanobox, has released Yanobox Nodes for the FxFactory® platform. Yanobox Nodes is a brand new visual effects generator designed to work inside Adobe® After Effects® CS3 / CS4 / CS5, Apple® Final Cut Pro®, Apple Motion® and Apple Final Cut® Express applications. Yanobox Nodes’ intuitive toolset provides artists with the ability to playfully link together graphics and text for the creation of beautiful 3D animations leveraging the speed of a GPU accelerated platform. Users can distribute graphics and text in 3D space into various shapes such as spheres, circles, and spirals and connect them with a succession of dancing lines and curves. The dynamic user interface enables quick and easy parameter customization and built-in oscillation, and key-framing abilities add to animation options. Users can further personalize each visual narrative by adding custom images to nodes.
“The FxFactory platform was a perfect fit for the creation of Yanobox Nodes,” says Jean Marc Noel, founder, Yanobox. “FxFactory’s extreme flexibility and functionality allowed for the quick and smooth construction of the new plug-in. Nodes gives editors and artists the options of working with a variety of different presets, or customizing their own graphic vocabulary for visually captivating 3D effects. We are extremely pleased with Nodes’ limitless creative capabilities, and would like to thank Noise Industries for their continued support and valuable partnership.”
“After the success of the acclaimed Motype title generator, Noise Industries is thrilled to work with Yanobox again to develop yet another outstanding visual effects plug-in,” comments Niclas Bahn, director of business development, Noise Industries. “Yanobox is known within the industry for producing wildly creative graphical programming, and for pushing the creative boundaries of post-production - Nodes is no exception.
