Idustrial Revolution has just released a new set of 53 plugin and utility tools called XEffects Toolkit. It's priced at $49 and billed as 'The most advanced, most featured and most helpful set of tools on the market for Final Cut Pro X.' We have 5 copies to give away too!
Final Cut Pro X comes with a lot of plugins already installed, but editors need more precise tools at their fingertips to quickly fix, highlight, ident or treat the video for professional results.
Idustrial Revolution's new pack of 53 robust utility plugins called XEffects Toolkit adds a large set of tools, perfect for all jobs from broadcast to events. Priced at $49 that works out at less than a dollar a plugin.
We like the extra functionality that has been built in, such as the optional fades or moves at the beginning and end of the effects. It saves editors' time having to apply them manually.
'The plugins range from essential tools such as Subtitles, Caption Safe Area and Pillarbox Shoulders to fine tuning plugins like Alpha Adjust, RGB Channel Adjust or Channel Swap.
The Shrinkback series of plugins range from a Quad Split builder to a completely adjustable Shrinkback with beginning and end scale, position and individual side crop control. All have options to use the move at the beginning, end or both.
We feature a suite of tools for analysis. An Arrow Highlight, Circle Highlight, a Telestrator and Zoom Split Analysis that enlarges footage in a split compared to the original. The two Side Shade plugins allow a vertical or horizontal section of the screen to be darkened with a gradient for graphics or picture overlay. All have optional transitions so you don't have to add them.
The pack also contains a set of Variable Splits, Auto Zoom and Auto Rotate, Guides, 3D Spotlight and 3D Perspective as well as a set of Long Fades and more. We've also included industry standard VT Clocks and Countdown Slates!
