At present I’ve not really used CCG for anything more than playing out VTs / graphics as video with an alpha channel. That said I’m now looking at trying to use a bit more functionality with graphics that animate in/out and can populate data from an XML or similar.
Watched a cool video from Seppo Sormunen about using CCG/Animate/E2C libraries and it’s a little over my head but hoping I can make my way through it - but wondered if people can point towards some extra tutorials or things I need to be looking at.
At present I do fight sports so would want to create a few graphics for that, but want to learn how I can do extra bits and bobs… a few bits I’m particularly interested in creating:
Countdown timer & round with the ability to pause
Player names with shorts colour
Integrating twitter posts
HeaderText First/Last Name
SubText: Gym / Twitter Handle - with “next” animation to Fight record or text
Would love to populate from an XML (I currently make my videos with alpha using CSV files and know how much time that saves!)
I’d like to try and develop a bit of understanding - but may end up asking for help as my coding is basic and the thought of attempting something other than HTML might be a headache (I often make mistakes with HTML!!!)… am willing to give it a go first.
Any pointers/resources/tutorials etc. greatly appreciated.
