Tech Rings 2.1
Tech Rings is a combination of Final Cut Pro generator and a custom font to create a stunning 3D animated effect for your video projects.
The Font (ZZSCTechRingParts-Regular.otf) contains roughly three dozen characters. All characters are zero-width characters meaning you can set several consecutive characters and they will all align around a common basepoint. You can basically “type” a custom designed tech ring set and set the 3D characteristics any way you like using the 3D font tools and parameters available in both FCPX and Motion.
The generator supplied with the font only uses a silver metallic appearance. You are not limited to this appearance. If you have Motion, you may alter the generator any way you want, create new custom generators for particular looks or animations, etc. (Without the font, it’s of no use to anyone else.) The generator is a very basic implementation: one copy of each character (except the “base” and the center which are both the same circle character located at the “0” character in the font.)
