It has been a long time since we had a #freeeffectfriday! Let's fix that by publishing links to three, free great effects for Final Cut Pro.
First out of the gate is a plugin that was inspired by a user here on our Forum. Ben Balser was looking for a free star rating title plugin for Final Cut Pro, but couldn't find one. So our sister site, Idustrial Revolution sprang in to action, and a few hours later, an XEffects Five Star rating plugin was born.
Fully customisable, you can toggle ratings in half-star increments, change the position, size and colour. Dig deeper into Motion if you need more customisation or to change the icons.
Steve Martin and Mark Spencer recently covered blending modes in FCP on their YouTube channel. That episode led to the clever idea of building a plugin that shows all the blend modes at the same time in a grid style.
You can download the RT Blend Modes plugin for FCP here.
Ben Halsal has been cracking out the Final Cut Pro and Motion tutorials at a fair old pace. This is from a few weeks back, but we thought we would include it in the list. It is a plugin that helps with text wrapping in FCP.
You can download the Easy Text Wrap plugin for FCP here
If you want more free plugins, don't forget we have a large section right here in our Forum.
