60 templates in total
FCP World has announced new Blu-ray templates for the latest version of Final Cut Studio. The company's plug-in delivers 60 background templates, on top of the original five that come with FCS. All of them can be used for both Blu-ray and AVCHD discs; each is fully animated and looping, with room for customization in the form of personalized logos and titles.
The new templates can be made to work with FCP 7 and Motion 4 through the Share protocol, or with Compressor 3.5 via Job Actions. Some of the templates within the plug-in include Asteroids, Beer, Blue Green, Fog, Green Shimmer, Mars, Orange Whirl, Purple Metal and Pink Metal.
The templates have further been localized for Chinese, French, German, Japanese or Spanish, but are currently available only as a digital download, with a hard copy to be released shortly. The software is available from the FCP World online store for $50.
