What’s New in FCP X Plug-ins, October 2016 Edition

What’s New in FCP X Plug-ins, October 2016 Edition

Final Cut Pro X always has new plug-ins available and we don’t give them enough publicity so I thought it would be a good idea to start a new monthly column telling you what’s new and cool! Often, new products have a limited time.

Note: We have two late additions to the list. Red Giant Magic Bullet Suite v13 came out yesterday after this article was published, so I’ll add some info near the top since it’s a big one! The Luut Action pack was sadly missed, but it’s being added now!

Red Giant Magic Bullet Suite v13

Magic Bullet Suite 13 includes seven products. Five products have been upgraded and one is entirely new. Magic Bullet Looks 4, Colorista IV, Denoiser III, Mojo II, Cosmo II, Film 1.2, and the all-new Magic Bullet Renoiser.

What it does

Magic Bullet Suite is a set of seven tools that bring intuitive real-time color correction and more into your editorial timeline.

Why it’s special

There’s no other tool like Magic Bullet Suite on the market. Instead of listing the details here, I’m linking you to Toolfarm for the information.

Video Overview

Get Magic Bullet Suite v13

Get Magic Bullet Suite at Toolfarm for just $854.05, 5% off every day (MSRP: $899.00)

Download a free demo of Magic Bullet Suite here. Note: You must register at Toolfarm first, but we are cool and we will not sell your email address to anyone or needlessly spam you.

$99 Introductory Sale Through November 15th, 2016

What it does

From my own personal experience, most sharpening plug-ins on the market tend to over-sharpen and bring out the noise and compression artifacting. The good noise reduction tools are often expensive and/or slow. Samurai Sharpen was developed so that users can isolate noisy areas and sharpen just what needs to be sharpened. It’s made to be fast, precise, and easy to use.

Why it’s special

  • Isolate only the areas you want to sharpen with edge-aware algorithms and fine tuning controls
  • Built-in masking allows users to avoid sharpening noise.
  • One license supports Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro, and Apple FCP X. Avid and OpenFX support is coming soon.

CrumplePop AutoWhiteBalance

What it does

As you probably know, there’s no “White Balance” button in Final Cut Pro X that balances with the ease of an eyedropper, so it’s necessary to use plug-ins or use color wheels. I’ve recently tested some green screen footage in which the skin tones were very orangey from the Tungsten lights, and the actress had no areas of white to sample. This plug-in worked great!

Why it’s special

  • The powerful AutoBalance algorithm white-balances your shot automatically fast even if there is nothing white visible in the frame.
  • It’s fast and easy. Just drag and drop! There are
  • Works in both Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Premiere Pro with one license.

White Balance Roundup for FCPX
