LiveType is a special-effects titling application that comes bundled with Final Cut Pro 4. It allows editors with minimal motion graphic experience to create high quality, animated titles and graphics for importing into their Final Cut Pro sequences. In the past, if editors wanted to include animated titles and graphics in their sequences, they would hire a motion graphic artist or spend hours building complex animations. Typically, each element in the animation would require a number of keyframes relating to a number of different parameters, and each keyframe would then have to be adjusted individually to create the desired effect. This would normally take hours in other applications, but LiveType simplifies the process by providing you with pre-keyframed content that can be customized quickly and easily.
