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.

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
