Tokyo Split Animator is a plugin for Final Cut Pro X that offers 19 split screen templates.  It allows you to animate-in and animate-out multiple clips; however, as you can see the above video, it also works quite well with multicam footage (something that works extremely well in FCP X) by easily allowing you to show all angles at once with a split screen animation.

Tokyo Split Animator is available through FX Factory for $49.  More details on Tokyo Split Animator’s website.

The above video comes from a recent webinar that Tiffen put on with Richard Harrington to show off Tiffen Dfx 3.  In the video, Harrington covers some color grading techniques in several different editors that use the Dfx 3 plugin and really shows off the capabilities of this solid plugin.
