[prMac.com] Minneapolis, Minnesota - CrumplePop has released ColorKit Suite, a set of powerful color and finishing tools for Final Cut Pro X. ColorKit Suite combines a sophisticated color grading package with a beautiful set of analog film grain and light overlay tools, all available via the simple drag and drop interface of FCP X.
Because it was designed from the ground up for Final Cut Pro X, ColorKit Suite allows editors to apply complex, layered color grades without needing to stop and render.
"When Final Cut Pro X launched nearly a year ago, we recognized that it had the potential to deliver huge productivity benefits to editors," said Gabriel Cheifetz, co-founder of CrumplePop. "It's increasingly common that clients expect editors to both cut and finish projects. With ColorKit Suite, we have tried to give editors all the tools they need to do so, quickly and at a very high level of quality."
ColorKit Suite includes four powerful tools:
* ColorKit. ColorKit is a set of 34 professionally-designed preset color grades and three powerful contrast and tools for FCP X. Just drag and drop a ColorKit grade preset onto your footage to see a quick and beautiful grade. Then if you like, use the extensive built-in controls to dial in the exact look you want.
* Grain35, real 35mm and 16mm film grain that you can easily add to your own footage. Just drag and drop Grain35 onto your clips to add the beautiful texture of real photochemically processed film. Grain35 includes the signature grain of 6 different 35mm and 16mm film stocks and is available at both 19201080 and 4K resolutions. Grain35 works with Final Cut Pro 7 and X.
* HalfLight, a collection of optically-captured light leak transitions built specifically for FCP X. Just drag and drop HalfLight onto a clip to add beautiful, organic flash transitions to your footage. An extensive set of controls allows you to customize the color and opacity properties of each transition. HalfLight works with Final Cut Pro X only.
* OverLight, an easy way to apply washed-out glows and lens flares to your footage. Simply drag OverLight onto your clip to add a subtle, organic light texture that is impossible to create digitally. Extensive opacity and color controls allow you to customize each overlay. OverLight works with Final Cut Pro X only.
