We have been itching to post the Youtube tutorial since we saw that Photo Montage, a new add on plugin pack, had been announced when FxFactory upgraded to 2.5.6.
We didn't have to wait long and the video shows how easy making good looking slideshows within Final Cut Pro can be. Photo Montage is a separate plugin pack to FxFactory and is at a special price of $159 until April 19th when it will retail for $199.
Photo Montage Highlights:
"A Noise Industries' plug-in, Photo Montage, combines an extensive array of effect parameters with extreme ease-of-use for an unparalleled still animation workflow. Key Photo Montage features include:
