Lower thirds and other graphics themes?
 
Over the Christmas break I decided to give FCPX a try. That little experiment made me love and appreciate Vegas even more!

But one thing that Apple does so well are the included fx and themes, especially title pages and lower thirds.

There are all beautiful, very professional looking, and best of all super easy to use.

Is there a company that makes such a package for Vegas?

I understand that real pros hire real artists to use real software to create this stuff. What I need are simple, elegant, professional looking, while also somewhat generic looking themes.

Thanks,
~Jay

+1 for Digital Juice. Sign up for their mailing list as they always have sales so you'll never have to pay list price for anything they sell :)

There are also three new lower-thirds packages available for Titler Pro.

Thanks for all the input, I'll keep an eye out for sales at Digital Juice.... seems like I've gotten offers from them before.

Leslie, Are there any complete designs for photoshop, or do you create your own?

i watch tv, checkout dj's latest, etc., then come up with my own....

i'm very old school, KISS, i believe the viewer should simply be informed by a title, not distracted / entertained* / mesmerized / nauseated by it.

*of course, there are exceptions depending on the program, but even then, it should still CLEARLY inform.
