If someone has the time could you make a newz report mask

Example: Red bar going half way across the upper left side of the screen that says something like 'LIVE' on it. Then a bar going on the lower left side that says something like 'Breaking News'...

I can't imagine it being very hard. I would do it myself but I haven't mastered the whole plug'in making thing...

THANK YOU VERY MUCH~!

If I were you, I'd just use your NLE for this. I know that Studio will do it, and I'd imagine that Premiere and others would do it as well. You just need to add a title overlay, and put the text in. Or if you want the colors for the bar, make a gif or jpeg in photoshop and use that in the title card instead of regular text.

Premiere 6.5 has some templates of this sort built in, which work very well and look very good. They are easy, too.

I guess it wouldn't be too hard for me to make a plug-in of this variety, though. I'll see if I can find the time.
