What's New in FxFactory Pro 2.5
FxFactory Pro 2.5 introduces users to 8 brand new visually stimulating distortion, color correction, and transition plug-ins, as well as major quality and performance improvements to its slideshow generator. FxFactory Pro 2.5 features and benefits include:
New Filter and Transition Plug-Ins
Local Contrast: Local contrast enhancement increases the appearance of light-dark transitions in your source media.
Vibrance: Adjusts the saturation in your source media while minimizing clipping as colors approach full saturation.
Genie Filter: Pinches, stretches and slides the input image for a unique "genie bottle" effect.
Accordion: Reveals the destination by pushing the source clip to one side and unfolding the incoming clip to the full frame. The animation can be reversed, thus folding the outgoing clip to reveal the incoming clip.
Origami (Square): Reveals the destination clip by folding the source to one corner, or by unfolding the destination clip over the entire frame. This effect has become famous because of it's use on the iPad.
Origami (Triangle): Reveals the destination clip by folding the source to one side, or by unfolding the destination clip over the entire frame.
Genie Transition: Pinches, stretches and slides one clip out of the frame to reveal the next clip.
Page Turn: Flip the source clip to one direction to reveal the incoming clip, or flip the destination clip over the entire frame.
Significant Slideshow Generator Updates
A new user interface gives users increased flexibility in selecting and re-ordering image files, and complete creative control to produce slideshows in Final Cut Pro, Motion, and After Effects.
