      How do you make a "bug" like the CBS or NBC logo in the corner of the screen? Also how do you put text on screen like they do on 20/20 ( editor, producer ex…) Is it possable to do it in S10+?

      A bug is just a small composition that is shrunk down and placed into a corner. Simple ones can be made in almost all NLE’s. The real cool exotic 3D ones are probably created in something like After Effects because it has a lot more options and power than regular NLE’s do. If you know After Effects these bugs aren’t that hard to make at all.

      I work for a local station as a motion graphic artist and I create these bugs fairly often and yes After Effects is the most common tool used. Maya is also used. AE is a good tool for any text animation like what you see on 20/20. It is considered the industry standard for motion graphics. There are other tools (e.g. combustion) but AE is the most commonly used.

      Depending on your editing program, you could even make a simple animated gif or swf and import it. What kind of BUG are you thinking of? Simple, animated, 3-d?

      Off topic- I’m amazed at how much you all talk about AE in these professional situations. I use AE all the time for my no-budget films. Just funny knowing the extent of its use. Damn, it must be pirated like hell.

      I want just a "still" Bug, no animation. Currently I have Pinnacle Studio 10+ but I just oredered Sony Vegas 6+ DVD. I’m sure Studio can’t do this but can Vegas. thanks again for the replys.
