Stock Motion Graphics

Stock Motion Graphics

Stock motion graphics are typically premade moving backgrounds created by 2D and 3D motion-graphic artists. When you buy these collections, you buy a license to use them in your productions. These stock animations can serve as backgrounds or textures in promos, network identities, corporate videos, DVD menus, educational videos, and so on. Typically, they are loopable, meaning that you can duplicate them back to back without visual jumps in the image at the cut point.

Most editors don't use stock motion backgrounds raw; rather, they use transfer modes (blend modes) in combination with alpha mattes to create customized looks. (To find out how to get a virtually free plug-in that enables transfer modes in Xpress Pro, see the sidebar, “Using Transfer (Composite/Blend) Modes in Xpress Pro” below.)
