Idustrial Revolution has released CoverFlux, a free plug-in for Apple Final Cut Studio 2.0 and Apple Final Cut Express 4.0 applications, which uses Noise Industries FxFactory plug-in system.
Much like the image carousel effect seen in Apple iTunes and the Mac OS X 10.5 finder, CoverFlux dynamically displays user selected images in 3D proportionally fanned across the screen with reflections and transparencies. The CoverFlux FxPack automatically calculates the stack and fan while providing comprehensive controls for adjusting about any element of the display including, perspective, animation, and text.
CoverFlux FxPack users can select up to 25 images to display with corresponding title information. Images display with reflection and the ability to move in 3D during animation. CoverFlux FxPack parameters are highly customizable and allow users to control speed of the animation as well as colour, size, text, rotation, and drop shadow details. The CoverFlux FxPack plug-in is resolution independent, which Noise Industries says allows it to render with stunning image quality.
The plug-in can be downloaded from the Noise Industries Web site. It requires the FxFactory plug-in manager, which can also be freely downloaded from the Noise Industries site. The manager also installs a 30-day trial of the FxFactory Pro collection of plug-ins.
