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.

Digital Anarchy Samurai Sharpen for Video

$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.

Hawaiki Super Dissolve

Super Dissolve completely reinvents the dissolve transition with a whole host of advanced features

If the look of your dissolves is important to you, this is a plug-in you can’t afford to be without.


Highlights

SUPER DISSOLVE FEATURES:

Gamma Encoding – Super Dissolve offers unique in-depth control of the gamma encoding of the transition which has a very significant impact on the overall look.

Blend Modes – With 30 blending modes to choose from, Super Dissolve provides an incredibly rich range of compositing possibilities.

Layer Order – Another unique feature is the ability to choose the order in which the dissolve is composited.

Custom Curves – Super Dissolve offers you extensive and comprehensive control over the transition animation curves, with both a wide range of preset curves and complete manual control over the curve shape and timing.

Curve Design Interface – To facilitate the setting up of complex animation curves, Super Dissolve offers a unique interface that makes it easy to visualise exactly what you are creating.

True Asymmetric Dissolve – The unique and complex compositing technology inside Super Dissolve allows the user to create true asymmetric dissolves with discrete control over timing and blending.

Split Mode – Yet another unique feature is the ability to generate split dissolves where one half of the frame transitions through quicker than the rest.

Brightness & Blur – The ability to add either blur or brightness boost/cut or both means that the user can create glows and blooms and a variety of diffuse effects. In combination with the extensive blend modes options, this allows for some truly unique looks.

Dedicated Dip & Fade – Creating dips and fades is easy with Super Dissolve – just grab one of the dedicated modules which are optimised for these transitions. Again you have unprecedented control over every aspect of the dip or fade, allowing for subtle and complex results that no other transition offers you.

PluralEyes

Fast, Accurate & Automatic
With a touch of a single button, PluralEyes analyzes the audio from your cameras and audio devices and syncs them up, in seconds. No clapboards or timecode are needed.

What’s new:

Simpler. Faster. Smarter. Better.
Syncing just got even easier. In previous versions of PluralEyes, there were over a dozen different sync combination possibilities (Try Really Hard, Change Clip Order…etc.), which meant you might have to run the sync several times before getting it right. In version 4.0, PluralEyes analyzes your footage and automatically uses the best possible options. Just hit the Sync button, and PluralEyes does the rest.

Premiere Pro Panel
Get all the power and simplicity of syncing in PluralEyes without ever having to leave Premiere Pro. Just hit the Sync button in Premiere Pro, and PluralEyes does all the work. PluralEyes will even color code your footage based on the results of the sync, so that you know which clips, if any, need your attention.

Smart Start
We’ve made importing media easier than ever. Drag and drop an entire folder of media into PluralEyes, and during a sync it will automatically detect which device the media came from. Your files will be sorted so that media from the same device are on the same track.

Automatic Drift Correction
In long clips, sound and video can stop matching up perfectly. Unlike any other sync tool in the industry, PluralEyes can account for that and export a perfect sync. New in version 4, if drift is detected, PluralEyes automatically fixes it, and gives you the option to toggle between the drift corrected sync and the original audio without correction applied.

Vertical Track Scaling
PluralEyes 4.0 adds the ability to scale tracks vertically so that you can see more detail in the waveform when inspecting your media.

Track Comparisons
Select which audio waveform is shown next to the video track, making it easier to verify that the clips have synced properly.

Offload Integration
Red Giant Offload performs a checksum during media transfer from your camera card to your hard drive, giving you the peace of mind that your footage was backed up with no loss. New in PluralEyes 4.0 is the ability to detect Offload events and bring the footage over to PluralEyes for a seamless workflow between Offload to PluralEyes to the host-app.

Keyboard Shortcuts
PluralEyes now has the same keyboard shortcuts as Premiere Pro for a more intuitive, familiar timeline and playback experience.

Color Coding
Export from PluralEyes to Premiere Pro now features a color coding option for clips that don’t sync properly. This is also part of the Premiere Pro panel experience, but also happens if you sync in PluralEyes and export to Premiere Pro.

8 Essential Cuts Every Editor Should Know

“If your goal is to master the art of editing, you’re going to need to know the essential cuts to use when editing a film or video. Let’s go through eight of these and look at some examples of each. For said examples, we’ll be using excerpts from various films — but keep in mind that you can use these same cuts in any editing session, be it narrative, documentary, commercial, industrial, or even animation.

1. The Standard

The hard cut is the basic type of cut in editing. This type of cut is utilized when you want to cut from clip to clip without any type of transition, or where you cut from the end of one clip to the beginning of another. The only down side of the hard cut is that (out of all the cuts we’ll talk about) this one gives the least amount of visual meaning. To give you a quick overview of the history of cutting, here is a great video from Filmmaker IQ.

2. Jump Cut

The jump cut is a technique which allows the editor to jump forward in time. We see an early version of this technique in Eisenstein‘s Battleship Potemkin, where the battleship fires a mortar round and we watch the destruction as various angles jump cut from one to another. In this very early version of the jump cut, contemporary audiences were introduced to a new way of time passage in film. It obviously gained traction and is one of the most used types of cuts today next to the hard cut.” – Johnathan Paul | Premium Beat
