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.

I neglected to note this last week when I wrote about the Final Cut Pro X version 10.0.3 upgrade; however, one of the many fixes provided in the update was a hurdle that Red Giant had with implementing Magic Bullet Looks in Final Cut Pro X.
I’ve been using Magic Bullet Mojo with FCP X since it was released. Simple, clean and smooth integration with the FCP X interface. Now that Looks is integrated with FCP X, I’ll be using it on some upcoming projects. In what little I’ve played around in it, I’ve been overly pleased with the interface. I’ll let you know if there are any problems as I use it more, and I welcome your thoughts as well. So far though, so good.
Magic Bullet Looks is only $199 through tomorrow, Feb. 7 (that’s half off). Coupon code LOOKSFCPX50 required. The FCP X Looks upgrade is free for existing Looks users.
