Remember the guys that bought you the $39.99 NYC for Final Cut? Well they've been busy out shooting in Washington and have produced another inexpensive royalty free stock footage pack.
Bundling up stock footage into an application and selling it on the App Store is a brilliant idea. Mosa Motion Graphics must have done OK out of the New York pack as they have followed up with the Washington DC pack. We would have been a bit more adventurous and shot Las Vegas or even London, but this pack just might save you having to get on a plane for the capital.
We couldn't find the application on the US website, maybe it is a geographic thing, so here is DC for Final Cut on the UK App Store. Before we post the description we have one quick request to the authors, please don't spam Twitter the way you did with the NYC edition. You have a cool product so don't ruin it with dodgy marketing.
