I've been interested in the new set of Bumpers created by Igniter Media. Was trying to figure out how they were done and how to create my own. Basically they are little movie clips that transition from one still image to another. So I gave it a quick try yesterday.
The attached ZIP file contains a folder with a short MediaShout script and all the assests needed to run it.
The first is a transition from the series title screen to the sermon title screen. The second is from the title screen to the scripture screen. After the scripture passages, it goes back to the title screen and then back to the series title.
Rendered them all in After Effects and compressed in ProCoder. Still tweaking the settings as this first batch was a little too compressed, although the differences didn't read on the big screen as clearly as they did on the monitors... so that was a good thing.
Gonna expand on these this week for the next message and hope to develop some generic ones for sharing in the MXC.
