airport text is free 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

  • position title directly on frame with mouse
  • preview title in NTSC DV size
  • live preview (including fade-in and out)
  • any text color
  • any shadow color
  • switch shadow on/off
  • graphically set font size more...


Mac OS X 10.2 or later, iMovie 3.

This is terrible. You can't even use the regular text slider and it has a very jumbled interface. Then, when trying to preview the effect, my Mac did an automatic emergency logout to prevent damage to my hard disk and the schoolwork I was doing was totally lost! VERY BAD. DO NOT USE THIS IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR FILES.

Just tried it. Works as indicated. Another nice plugin for the collection
Only a few suggestions:
The flow of characters before stopping at the final text isn't as smooth as I'd hoped. i.e. lots of character substitution then suddenly you arrive at the final text rather than a more gradula change of characters, regardless of adjustments to the speed bar.
It took me a moment to realise you change text size by dragging the text box in the 'configure' window rather than using the text slider.
Also got momentarily caught out using the system colour wheel to adjust text colour. i.e. I didn't close its window and iMovie wouldn't respond (other than to beep) until I brought the colour wheel window back to the front through the Finder and closed it.
As a general summary: A great and simple little plug in.
