In this post we’ll share a great online resource for FREE creative Final Cut Pro video plugins…

If you’re an editor looking to incorporate a few more tricks into your editing toolbox, check out FilmImpact.net for free high quality transitions.

Film Impact Transitions FCP
Site creator Jaap Boerhof has created six high-quality Final Cut Pro plugin transitions and provided them as a free download on his site.  Roll, flash and wipe effects are incorporated into these transitions to give them unique and creative looks.  Each of the plugins has customizable settings so you can quickly create your own custom looks.

To adjust transition settings: 

  1. Apply the transition to a clip(s) in the timeline.
  2. Double click the transition in the timeline and adjust the parameters in the Viewer.

These plugins were built on the FX-Script framework and are compatible with FCP versions 3 through 7, as well as Final Cut Express.  There is no word yet from Apple about plug-in compatibility in Final Cut Pro X, but we’d venture to guess they will continue to support plugins built on this framework (as well as extended support for their newer FXPlug framework).

In the future, Jaap has plans to expand the site to include video filters as well!  We love using these transitions and look forward to subsequent offerings from FilmImpact.net!
