Alex Gollner has introduced Alex4D Animation Transitions (, a plug-in pack for Apple’s Final Cut Pro X video editing software. Editors can use it to instantly animate video clips, graphics, pictures and text. Alex4D Animation Transitions allows users to use animation to add character to logos, titles and other story elements in the Final Cut Pro X timeline.

Each of the 120 Alex4D Animation Transitions adds animation to still images, on-screen text and video elements. Clips can be made to fly, bounce, skid, grow, shrink and flip onto the screen — on their own, or overlaid on top of other elements. Alex4D Animation Transitions can also animate clips off the screen in the same ways.

Alex4D Animation Transitions comes with 120 plugins. The transitions range from subtle and straightforward presets for editors who want quick results to complex and fully customisable presets for designers who want instant advanced motion graphics in their Final Cut Pro X timeline.

Alex4D Animation Transitions costs $49. The plug-in pack requires Mac OS X 10.10.4 or later and Final Cut Pro X 10.2.2 or higher.
