I'm working on a episodic documentary series for a personal project, and in a lot of the episodes, I need to display graphs and other data. I don't want to merely draw them in Photoshop and bring the images into Final Cut Studio 2; I'd much prefer to animate things.
For example, one of the charts I need to show is a line graph with several companies' share prices plotted across a particular time period.
I wanted to get your opinions on what you think is the best way to approach this.
At the moment, I'm considering building them in Flash and exporting into the relevant format to import into the FCS project. Is this the best way forward? I've never attempted this kind of thing before and I do have Motion although I've not had a good look through the program yet to see if I can achieve what I want. I have LiveType due to owning FCE 4.0 as well.
Any feedback very welcome. Thanks in advance.
