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!

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.

LUTs and LUT Freebies

What is a LUT?

LUT is short for Look Up Tables. It is a lot like a multiplication table that allow users to apply color grade presets to your footage. Wolfcrow has a great explanation of what exactly it is. Read it here: What is a LUT (Look-Up Table)?

This is a cute little video and explains it all better than I can.

Free LUTs and LUT Tools

FCPXFREE.com LUTs for use with Coremelt LUT

FCPXFree.com LUTs
FCPXFree.com LUTs

FCPXFree.com has many free Look Up Tables (LUTs) for use with CoreMelt LUTx, to get the professional finish you are looking for.

Look up tables let you apply color correction looks created by professional colorists onto your footage inside FCP X, or you can apply Camera LUTs which convert from LOG to rec709 (video) color space. These cannot be loaded directly into FCP X. You need a LUT loader plug-in, the two free templates in CoreMelt LUTx will allow you to load and apply these LUTs.

Check out the collection here.

LUT Buddy runs in popular editors like After Effects and FCP, and shares its values beautifully with our new BulletProof application. Get LUT Buddy as part of Shooter Suite or Color Suite, but you can download it by itself too.
