filmstyles_fcp_dvcreators

Yes you read the title right, this new pack of three plugins are for Final Cut Pro 7. Programmed by Graeme Nattress for DVcreators, these FXScript plugins can add that touch of Hollywood to your productions. 

This pack of filters retails at $35 and is branded as a quick and easy way to achieve film look effects without having to tweak multiple parameters.

"You may not be able to match Hollywood budgets or set design. But with FilmStyles, you’ll be able to powerfully transform the look and visual aesthetic of your video footage in many different ways: frame rate, color balance, gamma, film grain, and even reducing depth of field, to the point where if your viewers lean forward and sniff the screen, they should actually smell buttered popcorn and Red Vines."

They are written for Final Cut Pro 7 which means they won't appear in FCPX if you have that installed too. DVcreators point out that Apple have re-released FCP7 so the user base is still growing in the industry.
