Idustrial Revolution debuts FCPX XEffects Tech Transitions

updated 02:00 am EST, Fri February 3, 2012

Standalone is also part of FxFactory 3

Video plug-in maker Idustrial Revolution is now offering its XEffects Tech Transitions plug-in, which works exclusively with Final Cut Pro X, as a $49 standalone product (it is also available through Noise Industries' FxFactory 3). The package adds 28 transitions in total, all with adjustable settings for slipping, lengthening or shortening. The transitions focus on photo-style, freeze/flash and panel or grid transitions modelled after those seen in action videos.

The transitions use the GPU in the users' Mac to allow fast previews and rendering without layers, key framing or mattes. Almost all of the transitions also include freeze variations that "freeze" the last frame of the first clip and the first frame of the second (reminiscent of the credits seen on Dallas or The A-Team for those with long memories) without the user having to create their own freeze frames. Users can also "re-time" video within the effect to add urgency or focus as needed.

The effects are resolution-independent and can work with square-pixel and anamorphic formats equally. The plug-in is offered at $49 and requires a Mac capable of meeting the system requirements for Final Cut Pro X (an Intel Mac running 10.6.8 or higher with 2GB of RAM minimum and a 256MB video card). A free trial version is also available from the Noise Industries website.
