Avid offers AVX2 plug-in for motion graphics creation in post
Avid Technology has unveiled PostDeko for Editors, a new AVX2 plug-in that delivers a full Deko motion graphics creation environment within its Avid Media Composer, NewsCutter and Symphony software.
Designed for broadcasters and post-production teams, PostDeko for Editors offers users an efficient way to create a consistent station or program brand for both on-air real-time graphics playback and pre- or post-production in the edit suite. Users can easily apply changes to motion graphics received from Deko systems in the art department, without the hassle of exchanging modified clips and re-rendering files.
PostDeko for Editors has all the benefits of Avid Deko systems — a suite of real-time on-air graphics solutions designed to increase productivity and enhance creative output throughout broadcast graphics operations. The on-air graphics solutions reduce the need for additional staff training and costly specialized expertise by providing easy-to-use design tools and templates that enable customers to get productions to air quickly.
PostDeko for Editors is compatible with Avid Media Composer and Symphony software versions 3.0 and higher and NewsCutter software version 7.0 and higher. The AVX2 plug-in enables the full creation and editing of Deko motion graphics directly in the Avid timeline, eliminating the back and forth communication, recreation, render, and transfer time inherent where only rendered file import is available.
