Alex4D 360° Effects for Final Cut Pro X: Essential VR video tools for 360° stories
On my main site I have added a new product for Final Cut Pro X editors: VR video effects.
This kit of simple to use effects range from effects that stylise whole spheres of video to those that help viewers notice specific features of the 360° environment. As well as working with spheres of video, they also work with overlays such as logos, pictures and titles.
Duncan Shepherd, LA-based VR editor/project supervisor of major productions such as Paul McCartney’s “Pure McCartney VR” and the Winter Olympics “Trending Gold” says:
Alex4D 360° Effects adds vital parts of the VR toolkit to FCPX’s native abilities. I cannot envisage completing a project without them anymore, a genuine “must have” addition for me.
Alex4D 360° Effects includes three free plugins that can instantly save time in spherical video production.
The pack is divided into six categories: Repeat – to repeat footage and overlays around the sphere, Highlight – to attract attention to specific parts of the environment, Blur – blur parts of your footage and overlays, Stylize – to change the look of whole spheres at a time, Masks – to help overlay areas of 360° content inside other spheres and Flat – to make more of 360° footage used in flat non-spherical videos.
