A new clip editor let's you update/ edit a saved clip before creating the finished movie.

We have seen more and more creative samples on how to create custom backgrounds in Ecdesign. Many of you have discovered that CUSTOM OBJECTS support png textures (transparent background images). There are countless of free png textures available on the web which you can add onto a wall poster in Ecdesign. The result will be a flat 2D image which can look like a real object in 3D, if positioned correctly.
How to do it
In the sample photos above we have added various png textures onto custom wall posters (red lines). The wall poster objects are of course flat, but the final result will look great if you position the camera in a correct position in 3D.
What it will look like
Below is a picture showing what the final result will look like if you position the camera correctly.
We recently created a new staff gym and of course we did all the planning with Ecdesign.
As you can see below the result was extremely close to our initial Ecdesign plan.
1. What we started out with
The gym location- an old office storage room.
2. Flooring in process
We decided on a dark wood floor as base for the gym.
3. The equipment
First equipment arrives to the new gym.
4. Finished result
Here are the photos of the finished result. We wanted a bright, friendly feeling to the gym. As you can see the result was very to our design done with Ecdesign.
We are excited to launch the Ecdesign blog. The blog will be a great place to go to when looking for information about new Ecdesign updates, tips, company news and much more. We hope you will find the blog both interesting and useful.
