picture in clip (static)

what is it?

this plug allows you to place a picture (of almost any format: jpg, gif, pict, ...) into your clip - at any size. you can distort the picture, or force the plug to keep the picture’s proportions. of course, you can set the picture’s transparency - you may even use the picture as a semi-transparent backdrop! for even measure we’ve also thrown in the option of framing the picture in a color of your choosing.

version 3 (universal) also added image rotation and 16 different blend modes. version 3 requires OS X 10.4


this plug does not allow you to place movie clips into your clip. we have much better plugs for that. that’s why this plug has the ‘static’ in it’s name. it can only handle static (non-moving) pictures.

what should i use it for?

use this plug whenever you want to insert a picture into your clip, or want to ‘watermark’ your picture (e.g. with your company’s logo).


area of effect :
define which part of the clip the picture obscures. this replaces the standard area of effect you know from our other plugs.

click this button to choose a picture from your disk. any format that quicktime supports can be opened: jpg, pict, gif, bmp, …

keep proportions:
if you choose this option, the picture’s frame will always re-adjust it’s size to preserve the original picture’s size.
