FXHome's VFX, compositing, motion graphics, and grading effects have finally come to Final Cut Pro X, as well as Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere, and Apple Motion. They take the effects present in HitFilm 2 Ultimate to multiple platforms.
The plug-ins range from visual effects and professional green screening to procedural motion graphics and cinematic color grading. Filmmakers, visual effects artists and motion graphics designers will be able to utilize this pack of plug-ins to create organic particle arrays, design light flares, generate procedural fire and lightening, and add 3D muzzle flashes to action sequences. The colorist's toolkit enables pro skin retouching, cine style looks, bleach bypass and day-for-night processing and film damage effects. It also offers distortion and warp effects, rolling shutter correction and temporal manipulation.
Key plug-in features include:
° Professional compositing, with everything a VFX artist needs for professional keying and matte creation, including a fully featured chroma key for green screen removal and a wide range of tools for perfecting and enhancing composites;
° Cinematic color grading for color correction and video grading, with advanced skin retouching, bleach bypass and 3-strip color processing, day-for-night, grade matching and cine style for replicating classic Hollywood looks;
° Organic particle arrays to create complex systems of thousands of particles with extensive fractal shape and dispersion controls;
° Pyro effects for explosive visual effects, including customizable, procedural fire simulation and fully animated lightning and electricity, enable realistic fire and lightning simulations;
° Light flares and lens effects for designing lens flares and adding procedural lens dirt, anamorphic streaks, volumetric light rays and high detail glows;
° 3D particle-based muzzle flashes, which can be rotated and positioned in true 3D and are customizable to suit any weapon type to create action sequences;
° Grunge and film damage repair to create vintage and archival looks, with additional plugins to add film damage to video, simulate a poor TV broadcast, generate procedural film grain and much more;
° Video clean up to get the best results even from problematic footage, using the clone stamp to duplicate or hide parts of the frame, remove unwanted grain and correct rolling shutter distortion.
Users only need to buy the plug-ins once, and they get two licenses to install them in all their post-production software, including After Effects, Vegas Pro, Final Cut Pro X, Premiere Pro and Motion. The plug-ins cost USS$499. Go to FXHome.com for more info.
