When we said October, we really should have said in the last few days. New plugins for FCPX are coming thick and fast so we thought we would combine them into a roundup. Freebies too.
If there is one indicator that FCPX is doing well, it's the flourishing ecosystem around it. One growing market is the plugin business and as a variety of new products have been released over the last few days we it was a good opportunity to run through them.
So, in no particular order..
Danish friends of FCP.co Skippor have had great success with their range of budget plugins. Their latest product is a $8 plugin called Grain & Vignette which as does exactly what it says on the tin. We got a bit distracted by the video!
Next up are a couple of new plugins from Pixel Film Studios.
PROGRADE is a colour correcting or grading plugin that at the moment is reduced from $49.95 to $29.95.
"This collection of 30 professional color grades can be used in FCPX to create subtle yet powerful color changes. With PROGRADE's™ easy-to-use controls, you can quickly adjust the intensity of the effect to achieve the perfect color grade for your scene"
PROACTION is another colour correction and grading plugin and is also reduced from $49.95 to $29.95.
"These 30 professional action color grades for FCPX will make your film project look like its ready for the big screen. Simply drop one of PROACTIONS's™ effects on to your clip and adjust the user friendly controls to change the intensity and shadow."
We have tried to keep our list of free fcpx plugins up to date ever since our user forum was started. We now have 14 pages full of effects, generators, titles and transitions to download. New contributor FourdeeTV has posted three different plugins that we thought we would share with you here.
Arrow Plus Lite is a generator that includes 3 different arrows. You have control over their color, scale and rotation as well as the ability to turn on and off a drop shadow for the animated arrow and control for its distance, blur and rotation.
Ratings Plus is a generator that duplicates the rating screen you find on US DVDs and Blu-Rays
And finally in today's long list of new plugins is a free grading plugin from FourdeeTV for Final Cut Pro X called Vintage Plus.
So there you go, a raft of new plugin products for you to explore, no doubt there will be more by the end of October!
