Boinx FotoMagico animation plug-in now Final Cut, AE ready

updated 11:45 pm EDT, Wed June 2, 2010

Update works with video editors, exports to iPad

Boinx Software has loosed an update to its still-image animation software, FotoMagico 3.5. The software generates slideshows from a set of still images, supports movies -- with in- and out-point edits -- as slideshow frames, and allows users to add multiple audio tracks and narration track recording. FotoMagico can quickly build slideshows from basic elements, while customization options can be used to take the designs further.

Version 3.5 features plug-in architecture for Apple's Final Cut Pro, Express, or Motion software and Adobe's After Effects utility. In the video editing platforms, FotoMagico allows users to animate still images as backgrounds, introductions and b-roll. Content is rendered directly within the host application, eliminating workflow crosstalk and key-frame adjustments. Version 3.5 also adds an export-to-iPad option, which optimizes output for an iPad display.

FotoMagico 3.5 requires Mac OS X 10.5 and QuickTime 7.1, alongside a G5 or Intel chip and a preferred 128MB of VRAM. It costs $30 for a feature-limited home edition or $150 for a pro license, which is required to use with Final Cut and other video editors.
