We were slightly sceptical when Red Giant announced their ever growing pack of plugins called Universe. Well, it's just had a thumping update with a lot of new effects and is beginning to look like a good cross-platform plugin collection.
Rick had some unfortunate timing with his book release before, so it is good to see him getting his FCPX guide right up to date with a second edition.

Two pieces of news from MotionVFX. The first is an update to mObject that gives new functionality and a large speed bump, the second is a new plugin that reproduces organic chromatic aberrations.
It's no secret now that the first major Hollywood studio feature film cut on FCPX is Focus staring Will Smith and Margot Robbie. Warner Brothers has just published the first trailer for the film and it looks pretty cool.
