Ampede Introduces WebLink for Safari and MotionNew plugins let motion graphics artists animate any web page in Motion (February 05, 2007)
DMN Newswire--2007-2-5--February 5, 2007?Ampede introduced WebLink today, a Motion FxPlug plugin and Safari SIMBL plugin that together allow motion graphics artists to effortlessly export any web page from Safari as a pixel-perfect WebLink, and then import those WebLinks into Motion, where they can be further animated using all of the tools available in Motion.
"WebLink is the fastest way to put any web page into Motion and continues Ampede's tradition of providing affordable utility plugins for motion graphics artists" said Erich Ocean, Ampede's founder. "WebLink breaks Motion's 2048 pixel barrier and reaches new levels of ease of use with its seamless Safari integration."
WebLink puts a new command in Safari's File menu: "Export as WebLink...". A Safari user can then export the current web page as a "WebLink"?Ampede's pixel-perfect, resolution independent format that captures the entire web page, including off-screen portions. The WebLink capture process archives the current web page exactly as the user sees it, including such attributes as browser width and stylesheets. A companion FxPlug generator plugin in Motion can then import the WebLink and control its horizontal and vertical scrolling. Once a WebLink is in Motion the user can scale, animate, and apply filters and effects to it using all of the tools Motion has to offer.
Since WebLink is an FxPlug, not an After Effects plugin, performance is very good.

WebLink is available immediately for $100 and can be downloaded and purchased at http://www.ampede.com/weblink/.
