We have all seen the gorgeous scrolling image carousel that iTunes and now the Leopard finder uses. CoverFlux, the free FxPlug plugin reproduces that effect for still images by producing movies & project files for FCP, FCE4 & Motion.
CoverFlux takes a folder of up to 25 images and automatically displays them in the 3D fan style of Cover Flow. The reflection, preview stack, and displayed stack is all calculated automatically.
The plugin is fully customisable. Adjust the scale, number of images on deck, add the filename. The composition can be viewed from any angle in 3D and the viewpoint animated.
Resolution independent, this plugin works in DV right the way up to pin sharp 1080 HD.
