Motype is a powerful text animation plug-in that can add a touch of class to your After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Motion and Final Cut Express animations.

Motype can enable you to create the kind of flashy text graphics that you see in the movies but at a fraction of the cost. It works with most major editing applications such as After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Motion and Final Cut Express. For instance, you can add special blurring, 3D, particle and shadow effects to your intro or outro text that simply isn't possible in most editing applications.

It takes quite a while to get used to because it's designed for those that know their way around complex editing packages, so you'll have to spend quite some time learning it before you get what you want. However, once mastered Motype, it's remarkably easy to shape text into the effects and styles that you want.

Motype could still do with a wider choice of effects to add to text, but if you're just looking for a few basic extra touches, you'll find it more than sufficient.
