New Final Cut Pro X Templates allow editors to quickly achieve powerful VFX with great-looking, easy-to-use Glows, Lights, Particles, and Tilt-Shift effects. In addition to taking advantage of the Final Cut Pro X templates included with BCC 8 FxPlug, editors are able to create their own FCP X templates with BCC FxPlug in Motion 5, and access and reuse these templates in FCP X without going back to Motion 5.
BCC FxPlug features all-new designer transition effects for FCP X ranging from lens flares and lens blurs to organic wipes and dissolves.
BCC FxPlug gives FCP X users first-ever access to powerful extrusion filters that make it easy to create 3D objects using text and shapes. The Extruded Text filter creates stunning 3D text elements. Extruded EPS provides an easy way to import and extrude Adobe Illustrator layered vector logos. Type-on Text creates animated text type-ons that fly in from behind or toward the camera or slide into view from the top, left, bottom, or right of the screen either letter-by-letter, word-by-word, or line-by-line. Layer Deformer generates useful 3D shapes such as planes, cubes, spheres, and cylinders and deforms these objects using built-in vertex and pixel shaders.
Beat Reactor Technology is now built into many BCC FxPlug filters, making it easy to generate audio-driven effects such as a pulsing light or glow.
Many BCC filters feature PixelChooser, a totally unique built-in masking system. This easy-to-use system allows you to selectively apply a BCC Filter to video by matting out a portion of the image based on criteria ranging from color channel information to simple geometric shapes.
Built-in, automated motion tracking allows editors to animate layers based on one or more user-selected tracking points. Save time performing day-to-day tasks such as match-moving, corner pinning, wire and rig removal, and witness protection effects.
Multiprocessor-accelerated lens blurring effects allow you to match looks traditionally achieved by a camera lens aperture setting.
The new BCC Film Glow filter offers precise threshold control, glow color control, individual X and Y glow width control for vertical or horizontal glows, and even individual glow scale for each color in the image.
BCC Film Glow also provides several useful built-in tools:
Save your flickering shot with this powerful, sophisticated image restoration tool. Based on state-of-the-art research, the underlying engine offers a choice of intra-frame analysis or temporal flicker smoothing. Repair video affected by a flickering light source or uneven shutter exposure. One day this filter will save your life!
Powered by GPU acceleration, the new 3D Lens Flare effect can be used to create cinematic looks, stylish broadcast design elements, and beautiful transitions.
BCC Particle Emitter gives 3D broadcast designers the ultimate particle machine, providing an incredibly powerful, flexible, and OpenGL-accelerated particle system.
Enhance your broadcast graphics with organic design elements such as flowing strands of matter, glowing plasma, or hundreds of other creative options.
Build complex designs of 2D images in 3D space with this powerful and yet easy-to-use particle-based filter.
Add striking realism to your 3D composite with this powerful volumetric lighting tool. Simulate production lights, projectors, or stage lighting where your viewer can see light beams emanating from powerful light sources. Instantly recreate an atmosphere of a stage performance, a night scene, or a rock bar. Or simply add light beams to the headlights of a car. Try a built-in smoke texture for even more drama!
