Hello everyone,
I was hoping that someone knows if Live Type or any other CG program (besides AURA) is availabe for the T3.
I was at a local FOX affiliate and they are using Final Cut 4. I really liked all the CG moves this program has, plus the ease to get the CG's to effet on and off.
I really hope there is a program like this I can use as a plug-in for the T3.
I know of all the great effects available in AURA....but it was so nice to just drag and drop the CG and the effect, and it is done. I hope there is a CG solution soon so I can get the same type effects and great looking CG's that are availabe to those using Final Cut 4.

Unless you use Aura or Lightwave the CG options are limited. This is one area we hope they address soon.

LiveType is a great CG, that Apple bought up and made exclusively part of FCP4, so no, you can't get it for ANY other NLE.

But, you may still be able to find a copy of India Pro CG somewhere, since that's what LiveType really is, it's not like Apple actually invented it, or changed it. I love India Pro CG and use it all the time with my VT[3].

I wish there were other programs like it, but I'm afraid there may be patents protecting it, so I wouldn't count on anything similar coming.

How do you pull India Pro into VT3, I also have India Pro and trying to learn how to use it. But don't know how to bring it in to VT3.

Well, India Pro has to render to QT, so you just take the QT into Aura and convert it to a RTV+alpha.

Thanks, I've tried that, but I didn't tell it +alpha.
