The digital media folks at eZedia have released eZeScreen 1.0, the second in their series of plug-ins for iMovie 2. eZeScreen gives iMovie 2 users blue screen and green screen video effects.
You can position an additional movie over an iMovie 2 clip and adjust the transparency and fade levels of any selected color to add animated logos, talking heads or any QuickTime supported movie with the plug-in. Combined with eZeMatte, graphics and movies can now both be easily layered over iMovies, said Stefan Embleton, president and CEO of eZedia.
eZedia’s first iMovie plug-in, eZeMatte 1.0, was released in April and allows any QuickTime supported image to overlay an iMovie clip. Users can add borders, frames, themes, logos or any customized graphic. See our April 11 article for details.
eZeScreen is US$39 and eZeMatte is $29. Both require Mac OS X and iMovie 2.1.1 or greater, and can be purchased by visiting the eZedia Web site.
