BALLOON - free&easy to use Balloon generator 16 Oct 2016 09:34 #80808

// download attached file, un-zip and run the installer.pkg //



This is BALLOON, a simple to use Balloon-Generator.
After installation, you’ll find it in your Generator tab.

BALLOON offers two OnScreenControls, one for setting the light position, another to position the balloon.
In the Inspector of BALLOON you can set keyframes (center) to animate the balloon on screen.
Scale does what it says, …



You can adjust the color with Hue…

Style comes in two flavours:
• balloon with a string (both objects slowly wiggle in the wind…)
• small sign: here, some note is attached to the balloon, in the Inspector tab you’ll find basic title settings

By adding several instances of this generator you can create a flock of balloons.
When using just one letter, as in this demo, you have to adjust the text’ baseline.

(Owners of Motion5 can modify this generator and create a Particle-Generator out of it, …)

It’s a grey day here, so I hope, a free balloon brings some color into your life ;)

Enjoy Movie Making!

GREAT, Karsten. I like this a lot. Now trying to think of some upcoming videos where I incorporate it. Also you included a nifty install program that I would like to get hold of. Is that some free thing you got off the net? Is it a commercial product? Or did you create it? (Sorry if this is a somewhat newbie question, still getting my feet wet, here :blink: )

Thanks, Kenneth for the flowers conc. the balloon(s) … 
… but who doesn't like a free balloon? :silly:

The Installer…
Although it should be drop-dead-easy to drag a folder (=plugin) into some other corresponding folder (~/Movies/Motion Template/yaddayadda…), Apple-heads like me prefer some one-click-done solution.

There're, btmk, two:
MTT, by honorable forum member and for-decades-Apple-mastermind Andreas Kiel… and what I'm too dumb to using it :blink:
Andreas, fellow countryman of mine, so no language barrier, tried his best to navigate me - nope, me 'mouse-pusher', no engineer.-
It comes with dozen of options (…that's where you lose me instantly) => have a look at it FIRST!

pkg-maker - weapon of my choice, recommended to me by honorable broad member Paul, which is part of Xcode, Apple's Dev Tool. You need a (free) Dev Account, dl the 2 tons of Xcode, and inside you find the pkg-maker
For details, check your Personal Message (upper right, those tiny orange dot) … ;)

No, not my invention, me just a humble user, able to customise it cosmetically ........ LOL

... now, to the Private Message ...............

Hi Karsten,
Just wanted to give you a heads up. I took the liberty of using these balloons for a new project I am doing. This will be a new (free again) plugin I will be putting out there for anyone interested. I used your balloons at the end of the video(with credit to you, of course). Hope that is OK. :whistle:

Demo of Carousel Videos

Hope to have this plugin up shortly, just a few more bugs to work on yet. :blush:

That's why we publish our stuff here in this section of fcp.co - to share with others. So, very ok using it. With or without credit .....

btw:
love that 'plop' when you let the ballon vanish :woohoo: .... inspiring for an update, to add a 'plop' animation (1-2 frames of an exploding balloon). Unfortunately, the actual vers. of M5 doesn't allow to share audio via plugin .......

... so many ideas, so lil' time.

Your 'accordion' effect is again excellent executed, I'm impressed by your excessive usage of masks&layers... a nice one for stills, on my behalf ........
