livetype_animation.gifApple's LiveType is an amazing title tool that is bundled with Final Cut Studio and Final Cut Express.  A lot of users are missing out on LiveType's amazing functionality.  Now granted, you can use Apple Motion for similar effects, but sometimes it's actually easier to build your composite directly in LiveType. This sample animation was done entirely in LiveType.

LiveType is so easy to use and powerful, that I've seen Avid editors use LiveType to increased functionality within their Media Composer or Avid Xpress software.

 

LiveType supports 5 different tracks.  This track types include: Titles, Graphics, Objects, Textures and Video. You can even integrate Digital Juice backgrounds directly into LiveType for access to additional textures or ojbects.  You can also purchase additional LiveFonts, objects or backgrounds from LiveTypeCentral.com. Or, you can hire GeniusDV to show you how to create your own effects.

Each track is assigned it's own color within the Timeline window for easy reference.
