How to Create Inscriber Animations with Adobe After Effects CS6
If you are a broadcaster or a post-production expert who uses Inscriber products, such as Inca Studio, Inca RTX, InfoCaster and others, you may want to create Inscriber animations (.VIA files) within Adobe After Effects CS6. These animations are 32-bit files with key and fill that can be played back directly on your Inscriber products, saving you time and effort.
In this article, we will show you how to use the Inscriber After Effects plug-in to create Inscriber animations with Adobe After Effects CS6. This plug-in allows you to render .VIA files directly from After Effects, without having to transfer them from off-line compositing packages to online Inscriber character generators.
Step 1: Install the Inscriber After Effects plug-in
To use the Inscriber After Effects plug-in, you need to install it on your computer. You can download it from the Inscriber website[^5^] or contact their support team[^1^]. Once you have downloaded the plug-in, follow the installation instructions and restart After Effects.
Step 2: Create a new composition
Open After Effects and create a new composition with the settings that match your Inscriber product. For example, if you are using Inca Studio, you may want to use a 720x486 resolution, a 29.97 frame rate, and a lower field first field order. You can also name your composition according to your project.
Step 3: Add layers and effects
Add the layers and effects that you want to use for your animation. You can use any of the built-in tools and features of After Effects, such as text, shapes, masks, keyframes, expressions, presets, etc. You can also import footage or images from other sources and use them in your composition.
Step 4: Render the .VIA file
When you are happy with your animation, go to File > Export > Add to Render Queue. In the Render Queue panel, click on the Output Module settings and choose Inscriber .VIA File from the Format menu. You can also adjust other settings, such as quality, color depth, alpha channel, etc. Click OK and then click on the Output To settings to choose a destination folder and a file name for your .VIA file. Click OK and then click on the Render button to start rendering your .VIA file.
Step 5: Play back the .VIA file on your Inscriber product
Once your .VIA file is rendered, you can transfer it to your Inscriber product using a network connection or a removable media. You can then play back your animation directly on your Inscriber product without any additional steps.
The Inscriber After Effects plug-in is a useful tool for creating Inscriber animations with Adobe After Effects CS6. It allows you to render .VIA files directly from After Effects and play them back on your Inscriber products without any hassle. This way, you can streamline your production process and save time and resources. aa16f39245
