Bats generator is useful for year round projects for the moon image alone. This generator can be used for the whole Halloween effect or in parts: just the Bats, just the moon or just the sky designer or any combination.


Shown above, the OnScreen Controls to control this generator. On the left is the Directional OSC which allows you to position the origin of the bats, their direction of flight as well as their elevation of flight (upwards, level or downwards). Showing at the top right is the included moon image (copyright Sight-Creations, licensed with this software for personal or commercial use!) The moon can be turned on or off and has a positional OSC as well. There is included a Sky Designer/Night Background (basically a gradient) for the optional background for this effect. By setting the Number of Bats parameter to 0, the moon and sky can be used. This generator can also easily be used as a "Starfield" generator without the moon or the bats.

This version contains a bug fix for the Enlarge Bats parameter which did not operate correctly in newer versions of FCPX.

Note: The OSCs displayed in the image above are 3D models of actual onscreen controls - the actual OSCs will look slightly different (smaller and darker).
