Idustrial Revolution have updated their popular Volumetrix light spill plugin to give full compatibility with Final Cut Pro X. They have also given us five copies of their popular $49 plugin to give away.
There a a few plugins out there that will do volumetric lighting effects, but Volumetrix is slightly different. Traditionally, if you wanted to animate text on using a volumetric light spill effect, it was tricky to match up the rays with a mask revealing the object behind. Volumetrix automatically combines the two functions with one parameter making it quick to animate and easy to change duration. Many customers asked if all the presets from FCP7 could be made into different effects, this new version features all the 64 different styles, including transitions.
You are not limited to one wipe direction, the effect can reveal, conceal or just highlight text in any direction, 0 to 360 degrees. You get more than just rays too, a glow can be applied ranging from a subtle highlight to a massive ball of travelling light. Static or rotating glints can be added for that showbiz look. It's a great way to bring some life into boring text, stills or even moving video and priced at $49 it gives a lot of bang for your bucks.
Congratulations to the winners, the competition is now closed.
