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 to download the FxFactory app and FanFIlmFX plugins.

Each FanFilmFX plugin offers a trial version and a feature-limited free version. Full-featured FanFilmFX plugins retail at US$19 each. All plugins require a Mac running OS X 10.10 or newer with an AMD, NVIDIA or Intel HD graphics card and at least 512MB of VRAM. Host support includes Apple’s Final Cut Pro X 10.2.2, Adobe After Effects CC, Premiere Pro CC and Apple Motion 5.1.
