Veteran editor and plugin creator Alex Gollner continues his free filter offerings with several FREE transitions and effects for FCPX!
Final Cut Pro 7 users (and earlier versions) may recognize Alex4D as the maker of some very useful free plugins and transitions for FCP. With the release of FCPX, Gollner adapted several of these plugins for the new application — and added a few new ones as well.
On his site, Alex4d.com, Gollner has not only made these effects and transitions available for FREE, but he’s also laid out detailed instructions on how to use each of them in your FCPX projects! Here’s a few of the highlights.
Free Final Cut Pro X Plugin: Mask 8 Points
Improves upon the 4-point garbage matte that comes as a default in FCPX by offering an additional four spatial points for manipulation. This filter was a favorite of mine in FCP7 and now includes even greater falloff and density controls.
Free Final Cut Pro X Plugin: Dissolves Start and Finish on Edit
Aligning transitions to start, center, or end on an edit is one missing feature in FCPX. Alex has created two separate transitions here — one that starts on the edit and one that ends on it. A nice transition to fill in for a missing FCPX feature.
Free Final Cut Pro X Plugin: Alex4D Text Box
Free Final Cut Pro X Plugin: 4 Up
Free Final Cut Pro X Plugin: Smooth Move
Change the interpolation of the elements in your timeline by easing in and out the position, scale, and orientation. This effect will give movement in your projects a more natural feel. Great for working with graphics!
