[prMac.com] Munich, Germany - Boinx Software today announced that FxTiles, its spectacular collection of 3D filters and transitions, is ready for the new Apple Final Cut 7. Based on the revolutionary visual effects architecture FxFactory from Noise Industries, it also fully supports Apple Final Cut Express, Apple Motion 4 and Adobe After Effects CS3/CS4.
"Final Cut Pro 7 is a great release, but for me, the most exciting aspect of the product remains the plug in architecture that allows developers like Boinx Software and Noise Industries to extend the creative potential of the core package, says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. "We are proud to provide the creative tools that artists use to create the most stunning visuals."
"The transitions and filters that Boinx put together is a nice package. These transitions are great for videos with movement and action like dancing, sports, music videos and demo reels," says Andy Burton Coon, award winning documentary filmmaker. "The price is right at $49."
FxTiles Filters & Transitions
Designed for Apple Final Cut Studio, Apple Final Cut Express and Adobe After Effects CS3/CS4, Boinx FxTiles offer some "extra spice" for video and post production professionals to impress their audience:
* Flip 3D - Users can divide the source image in tiles and flip them in 3D space.
* Shatter 3D - Users can divide images into tiles and animate them through 3D space.
* Spread 3D - Divides the image into tiles and offsets each tile in 3D space.
* Flip & Reveal 3D - Divides the source image into tiles and flips them in 3D space to reveal the same portions of the destination image.
* Shatter & Rebuild 3D - Shatter the image into fragments while at the same time rebuilding fragments of the destination image in place of the source.
* Shatter & Rebuild with Fade 3D - Shatter the image into fragments that gradually fade out, then fades in fragments of the destination image and uses them to rebuild it in place of the source.
* Shatter & Reveal 3D has two variants: in the first, the source image is shattered to reveal the destination image below it. In the second variant, a shattered version of the destination image is gradually rebuilt over the source.
