Buena Software today released an update to its Effect Essentials suite of plug-ins for Adobe After Effects and Apple Final Cut Pro. Version 1.6 now works in both After Effects and Final Cut Pro on both Mac OS 9 and OS X with one set of plug-ins. In addition, the custom interface elements in the plug-ins now work directly in Final Cut Pro’s effect window, allowing live dragging of the controls and real-time updating of the video. This is a free update to registered users. The full version can be purchased for US$199 until January 1, 2004.
