Wildform announced on Tuesday the release of its new
Custom FX Collection, a set of plug-ins for the company’s video titling and text animation software, Wild FX. The collection features 400 customizable effects, including “master” effects that can be used to specify basic animations and versions of the effects that come standard with Wild FX. Users can adjust such variables as position, timing, scaling, alpha, color, rotation, speed and more for each effect.
Custom FX Collection is US$49, with a 20 percent discount available for existing and new Wild FX customers for a limited time, although Wildform didn’t specify an expiration date. Wild FX is $39 and requires Mac OS X v10.2, 64MB RAM and 20MB free hard drive space. Wild FX Pro, which is $99, adds the ability to export to video along with such options as alpha channel support, frame rate adjustments for NTSC and PAL and more. The regular version of Wild FX only exports to the Flash (.swf) format. Demos of Custom FX Collection and both Wild FX applications are available from the Wildform Web site.
