CrumplePop has released ColorKit Suite, a set of color and finishing tools for Final Cut Pro X. It’s designed to allow editors to apply complex, layered color grades without needing to stop and render.

ColorKit Suite combines a color grading package with a set of analog film grain and light overlay tools, all available via the drag and drop interface of FCP X. According to Gabriel Cheifetz, co-founder of CrumplePop, ColorKit Suite includes four tools:

° ColorKit, a set of 34 professionally-designed preset color grades and three contrast and tools for FCP X.

° Grain35, real 35mm and 16mm film grain that you can add to your own footage.

° HalfLight, a collection of optically-captured light leak transitions built specifically for FCP X.

° OverLight, a way to apply washed-out glows and lens flares to your footage.

ColorKit Suite is available for purchase on the CrumplePop website ( for US$299. The components of the suite can also be purchased separately.
