Four sets of plugins have been released for Final Cut Pro X over the last week or so. They seem to follow a theme of light transitions and overlays.
We start off with a new set of light effects from Tangent FX. Called Designed Light 4K, the $29.95 range of stylised lighting effects are more than just light leaks.
'Building on the success of the first Designed Light Effects, we are announcing Designed Light 4k. With the assets produced at over 4000 pixels in resolution, we've opened up the opportunity for On-Screen Controls, with fully adjustable position,scale and rotation. Use the 20 different designs alone, or mix and match them as adjustable clips in the FCPX timeline.'
Tangent have also very kindly published a discount code FCPDL4K that will give you 15% off until the end of the week - We will try to see if they can extend it until the 16th of November.
They have also produced a tutorial video.
Luca from Lucavisualfx has been busy making custom lighting effects too. His Light Transitions Pack 2.0 is a collection of dynamic HD ProRes 4444 overlays that are compatible with most editing and motion graphics software. Normally priced at $49, they are on offer for $39 until the 18th of November.
On to the first of MotionVFX's two new plugins. mStatic is a collection of tv noise effects. The set comes in two sizes at two prices. The 2K set sells for $49 and the 4K set for $69.
Finally, also from MotionVFX is mHUD. As the name indicates, this is a $49 set of 50 Motion template plugins running in FCPX. Also supplied are ProRes 4444 files that can be used in any NLE or motion graphics software.
