Digital Anarchy has announced Text Anarchy 2.0, a text animation tool for use with Final Cut Pro and After Effects.

The product simplifies the creation and animation of text for broadcast designers, compositors and typographers. It will be demonstrated at the broadcasters trade event, National Association of Broadcasters 2003.

Digital Anarchy president Jim Tierney said: "Since text is one of the most difficult things to animate, we were continually getting requests from our customers to expand the Elements of Anarchy filter set.

"Where the previous filter set was designed for creating background text elements, Text Anarchy 2.0 is intended for projects where text is the main component of the design, which makes the creation of complex text animation significantly easier."

The product offers eight filters that can produce a variety of special text effects in video projects and work with almost any Truetype or Postscript Type 1 font.

The product costs $129 until April 30, $149 thereafter.
