Holy Graphics Knockoff Batman!!

Recommended Posts

Came across these two stock After Effects templates that are blatant ripoffs of a couple Renderon-designed looks.

 

First is a knockoff of WPTV's 2008 HD look, and it is BAD:

Second is based off KCTV's 2015 look:

That ain’t a knock-off. It’s the real deal from the FTS Graphics Hub.

 

Also not the first time they’ve helped out a non-O&O either.

 

Though what they did have before was definitely serviceable for that market.

Lubbock seems like too small a market to have that kind of in-house lifestyle program, and that talent bump was way too long. Cool, I see them...oh, I still see them.

This talent seems like something from a College station. Hokey a fuck!

What more can you expect from a small market independent?

For a market the size of Lubbock that's actually not too bad. It could always be worse

Are we sure Novocom didn't...you know, do that look for WESH?

 

You're correct. They did it for both.

I didn't see WESH's version in there. Only WTVJ's.

That sequence at 17s is pretty damning.


I just rewatched that section, but those graphics were actually for NBC’s former overnight news service, NBC Nightside. They do look similar though.

Here’s the full open:

not sure if this would go here or in one of the international threads (let me know if it's in the wrong place, didn't see an international knockoff thread), but Vizion Plus's news open is a blatant knockoff of ITV's offerings. i'm also pretty sure they're tryin to go for an ITV thing with the set and are... failing, to say the least. seems to be some kind of weird mix of the regular ITV news intros with elements from the News at Ten open.

here's Vizion Plus Lajme -

 
and here's ITV -



speaking of ITV, here's Granada attempting to copy one of the 90s hearst looks. feels like they tried to make the arrowed G logo work kinda like the WCVB numeral but... it just doesn't work too well imho -
