Yanobox Storm: Procedural 3D in a plugin for FCPX and Motion, Premiere Pro and After Effects

Hawaiki’s Super Glow, on the other hand, is a glow effect that “just” adds glow to underlying footage and does so with six “glow sources”. It offers complete control and the result can be simple but also complex.… Read More Make video elements really glow with Hawaiki Super Glow
