UPDATE: OK, I got snookered by a year old press release and a little chatter in the forums. Sorry.

NewTek, Inc. today introduced Sports Ammo Pack for 3D Arsenal™ and LightWave®, 3D content that enhances sporting event productions. The pack includes 75 individually animated scenes with many other features such as a selection utility to quickly customize color and texture mapping and custom color presets for commonly-used team colors.
The graphic animations include:
- 15-second openings and five-second bumper animation sequences for each sport, featuring a logo revealed in a sports arena or stadium setting
- Logo animations for team and player identification, including three logo “shield” designs with multiple animations for each (one team, two team, single player, multiple player, etc.)
- “Hall of Fame” animation featuring a parade of banners with areas for mapped images or video of players and a team’s logo.
“Sports Ammo Pack gives producers the opportunity to quickly and easily add impact to their sports production,” said Rex Olson, NewTek’s VP, Content Development. “With key elements including openings, bumpers and logo animations, the producer can spend more time on following the action of the day’s contest and less time on the details.”
- Fast-paced five-second bumpers and two second transition animations featuring the subject of play: football, baseball, basketball, soccer and more.
