612 Authentic Media is launching a new set of lighting effects for Final Cut Pro, CrumplePop Noir Moderne. The set includes 19 effects, three transitions and a royalty-free title, focused on dark lighting, strobes, venetian patterns and vignettes. Users can drag and drop effects directly into the timeline of Final Cut Pro 6, 7 and the newly released Final Cut Pro X. The effects can be adjusted for opacity and luminance and can be layered with one another.
Effects include atmospheric moods and lighting such as Basic Noir Flicker, Boiler Scroll, Fog, Projector FlickerRain, Roscoe Flicker, Street Light and Venetian Scroll. The software works with 50 codecs, and is available in 1080p24 ProResLT, 1080p24 h.264, 720P and SD formats. Mac OS requirements were not noted, but most of CrumplePop's other effects require Mac OS X 10.5. It retails for $75, but can be had for $40 with the coupon code NOMO-0036-INTR-0707 this week.
