WebLink, PDFLink 2 ship

Ampede today introduced WebLink -- a Motion FxPlug plug-in and Safari SIMBL plug-in -- as well as PDFLink 2 -- the company's second-generation PDF plug-in designed as a Universal Binary to run natively on Intel-based Macs. WebLink and Safari SIMBL together allow motion graphics artists to export any Web page from Safari as a "pixel-perfect" WebLink, which Motion users can import for further animating. WebLink adds a new command in Safari's File menu titled "Export as WebLink..." that archives the current Web page exactly as it is seen, including attributes such as browser width and stylesheets. The companion FxPlug generator plug-in for Motion imports the WebLink and controls its horizontal as well as vertical scrolling. PDFLink 2 is a fully-integrated Final Cut Pro generator plug-in that renders vector content from PDF and Adobe Illustrataor files frame-by-frame. WebLink is available for $100, and PDFLink 2 is priced at $100.
