Nattress_film_transitions_fcp

It's been a week of plugin and software releases and there's more to come. Graeme Nattress has launched a pack of film transitions for FCPX, Motion and After Effects.

Hot on the heels on their Levels and Curves plugin (now updated with onscreen GUI) which was the company's first product to use FxFactory, we welcome their second, Film Transitions.

This $49 pack will 'Flash, Burn, Jump and Dissolve your footage as if it were made of celluloid!' as Graeme's website describes the new product. The pack is made up of four plugins that will work in Final Cut Pro 6,7 & 10, Motion 3,4 &5 and Adobe After Effects 8,9 &10 (CS3 to CS5.5).

  • Jumpy Splice simulates the effect of film jumping out of the projector's registration sprockets at the point of a tape splice. Choose from 35mm, 16mm, 8mm and Super8 style film!

  • Burn Through mimics the melting and burning of the film image when the film jams in the projector and gets roasted by the projector lamp. Select from several different burn styles, or create and load your own!

  • Film Flash recreates the overexposure produced at the end of a film take.

  • Film Dissolve brings the power of film-log space to recreate the illusion of an optical dissolve. Choose from four different styles of dissolve--each applying or mapping light in a distinct fashion.

There are three videos produced about he Film transitions, the first demo's the effects. You can download a free trial here.

        

 

The second is a tutorial on how to use the plugins produced by Noise Industries who make FxFactory, the distribution and licencing method.

 

Lastly there is a short video on how to build a custom burn map for the Burn Through plugin.
