// dl, unzip and drag into ~/Movies/Motion Templates/Generators //

This is a drop-dead-simple-generator - all it does, is drawing a line onto your clip.
Watch the demo:




To adjust its length and position, you’ll find an OSC with two handles in the Preview window.

… and you can change its appearance into an arrow.

Not more, not less. Just a line.
Hope you find it as useful as I do ;)

Especially the arrow! Now, can this be integrated with TrackX or DriveX to track one point or the other?

Very simple things are the most handy to have around daily. Thanks, Karsten. This is living happily on my station's systems now.

Have we forgotten this Simon Ubsdell freeware gem? I've used it for years.

oops … to my lame excuse: in 2012, I didn't knew what a plugin is :unsure:

definitely 'better' than mine … except 'no arrows'! LOL

Thanks for reminding me!
<note2myself: dig in the archives!>

in that context:
my school-kids asked, to modify my plugin to create a lightsaber… sorry kids, no OSC-keyframing … except, you are the geniuses at motionvfx:
www.motionvfx.com/mplugs-83.html

they invented their own system/GUI - awesome! (actually 50% off ;) )

It does have arrows. The straight line and curved line markers can have "end caps" of four different choices, separately selected. So you could have single or double headed arrows. This is a shockingly deep and useful tool, done as a Title.
