FxFactory PRO v4 Video Effects Plug-in Review

FxFactory PRO v4

FxFactory PRO v4 is a plug-in for popular NLE editors like Final Cut Pro X, FCP 7 and Premiere Pro CS6. I have been using FxFactory PRO v4 for a few months now in both FCP X and Premier Pro CS6. While it also works in After Effects and Motion, my use has been limited to NLEs.

FxFactory 4.0 Adds Support for Adobe Premiere Pro

FxFactory 4.0 is now available and adds support for Adobe Premiere Pro.  The plug-in management program has been a great tool for using with FCP X, Motion, FCP 7 and After Effects; however, the one video editing program that I use the most hasn’t been supported and, as a result, I’ve not been able to take advantage of so many cool video plug-ins.  But now it is.

FxFactory 4.0 is a free download and there are a few free plug-ins that are available with it.  Additional plug-ins are available for trial and purchase with integration inside of FxFactory.

You can download FxFactory 4.0 from Noise Industries’ website.
