FxFactory Fold folds your footage

Fold is a FXFactory plug-in that folds your footage while animating it. It’s a great effect to use on titles, as a transition or on its own. You do need a bit of patience when rendering the effect on a slower machine like mine, but it’s worth it.

Yanobox Mosaic converts footage into tiles

FxFactory has a new Yanobox plug-in that works with Final Cut Pro X, Premiere Pro and Motion. It’s called Mosaic and it turns your footage in dynamic mosaics. As with Nodes, Yanobox’s other plug-in, you’ll be creating a truly magnificent composite with Mosaic.

xsend result in motion

Xsend to Motion solves a problem that has been bugging Final Cut users since Final Cut Pro X was first released. You can’t send a sequence or timeline to Motion, create a composite and replace your original clip with the composited one.

It’s a huge step forward, but it’s not a seamless integration.
