Taking off where Motion Designer's Toolkits 1, 2 and 3 left off, volumes 4 and 5 in the series (MDT4 & MDT5), explode the MDT line with two unprecedented packages of dynamic animated elements. Over 8 months in the making, these volumes of lively, richly colored organic animations involved a team of over 40 different artists from a wide variety of artistic fields -- pencil and tablet sketchers, vector design pros, and traditional fine artists -- as well as a dedicated crew of animators.
The painstakingly handpainted animations in these volumes include real watercolor, oil paint and ink effects which were scanned at super-high resolutions, expertly cut out and then animated in a way that allows the user maximum flexibility to use the elements as-is or customize to suit a specific job. Each volume contains 11 unique categories of artistic looks from Watercolor and Oil Paint to Dry Brush, Swirl Filigree and Thought Bubbles. There has never been a package like this. It blurs the line between fantasy and reality, bringing a real life, energetic, full color fine arts feel to any type of project.

Seamless Loop Segment
Entry, Loop & Exit Segments Combined
New Entry, Loop & Exit Segments
We have now introduced Entry and Exit Animations to perfectly match the seamlessly loopable animation.
With these you can fluently introduce and retire animated elements in style or even use them independently.
This example shows the loop segment playing twice along with the Entry and Exit Animations. The Juicer allows you to easily customize these segments.
Entry, Loop (twice) & Exit Segments Combined
Compound Animation (All of the Above Layers combined)
Compound Animations are dramatic and complex in nature. Multiple layers are used to create the content.
Every layer that forms the Compound is included as a separate animation so you can simplify, re-construct or customize the animation based on your project specific needs.

Motion Designer's Toolkit
"Digital Juice has done something very different with the MDTK. They have provided not only the "animated" stock element that you can take off the disc using their "Juicer" application, but they have also provided (in many cases) an After Effects project, that shows you how it was created, and let's you alter it to make it something different... These elements are top of the line from the elements themselves to the packaging they come in." Read More

Animation files are provided as pre-rendered high resolution Quicktime movies. If you need a different format, you can use our free Juicer software to convert to PAL, NTSC & DV and output to AVI, Quicktime, image sequences & native NLE codecs, making the files compatible with most non-linear editing applications and compositing software.
Adobe After Effects is required only if you want to use the provided AE projects to manipulate the MDT 3 animations.
Graphics and compositing software which accepts import of the .AI format (such as Adobe After Effects, Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop) is required only for use of the provided static vector images.
