Two new products from two Final Cut Pro X plugin developers. Get custom graphics layered over footage with XOverlays and bring those GVG wipe patterns back with Shape Pop.
Both new products are part of the ever expanding Noise Industries plugin management system FxFactory. They both have free watermarked trials and Stupid Raisins are even offering a 30 day money back guarantee.
First is a set of animating graphic elements for FCPX from Luca Visual FX called XOverlays. This $49 pack of different looking overlays range from hi-tech designs such as grids and sound waves through to more retro styles such as 1960's boxes and bokeh.
The looks are not baked in, there are many controls to tweak the animations and many feature image wells to add your own graphic into the mix.
The second new plugin is a set of wipe patterns called Shape Pop from Stupid Raisins. We have to say that these wipes immediately brought back memories of going through all the various wipe patterns on old analogue video Grass Valley mixers. We can even remember the SMPTE numbers of some!
The $49 pack features 30 animating transitions that are easy to use being drag and drop, but they are also customisable in direction and look.
