FanFilmFX (www.fanfilm.fx) has announced the availability of the latest versions of its Star Wars-inspired VFX plugins.
Brothers Alex (age 13) and Ben Dashwood (age 11) developed the plugins that pay tribute to iconic sci-fi visual effects, emulating lightsabers, blaster bolts and transitional wipes. Alex and Ben, with a little help from their father, Tim Dashwood, founder of plugin-maker Dashwood Cinema Solutions, have made their effects plugins available for Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Apple Motion and Final Cut Pro. The first round of FanFilmFX VFX plugins includes:
° Saber Blade: The weapon of choice for any true Jedi, easily keyframe and rotoscope lightsaber effects into videos to achieve the quintessential battle scene.
° Blaster Bolt: Add laser-shooting guns to intensify fight scenes by animating a Blaster Bolt’s laser burst effects onto your own space battle videos.
° Space Wipes: Take a tip from the director himself and emulate the scene transitions used heavily in the movie.
All FanFilmFX plugins run on the FxFactory platform. Visit https://fxfactory.com/download/ to download the FxFactory app and FanFIlmFX plugins.
