airport text is title plug-in for iMovie done the way thy should have been. on the surface, it re-creates the old text panels in airports and train stations that have arrays of flip-over letters (like the old alarm clocks).
however, this plug-in is also a show-case to show off our plug-in expertise. in addition to the controls every title plug-in offers, this plug-in provides
the biggest problem we (still) have with this plug-in is that it shows iMovie's shortcomings rather prominently (which is a shame, really, since iMovie is an incredibly cool program). iMovie's user interface for titles is not well thought-out, and haphazardly programmed. we feel lucky that it works at all, and many inconsistencies (e.g. you must click on a control after changing the text, or the plug-in won't be passed the new text) are definitely something we can't control.
and we really don’t like the way the user is forced to allot time for a title. we prefer the way effects work: apply the effect to a clip, and let the plug-in calculate everything, including duration.
therefore, we might opt to convert the title plug-ins back to normal effect plug-ins in the future.
