FxAndy is a Sweet Film Simulator for Final Cut Pro

February 3rd, 2010 · 2 Comments

Yes the name of the plugin is FxAndy and I did not name this plugin, but I do love it. First off, I’m not a film person. I’ve learned how to shoot in the digital realm but I do understand the beauty of film. This plugin gives some of that beauty back to the video world and with ease.

Here is a ridiculous list of the simulators from FxAndy.

Even if you have no idea what setting does what, play around with the simulators you will come up with a better looking video with this plugin. Here are some examples of FxAndy in action.

How does it work?

    FxAndy translates the digital image you captured into a realistic simulation of a film camera complete with full color filter control, exposure control, film type selector with latitude adjustments and processing variations, darkroom and enlarger, classic print emulsions and papers with variations and adjustments — and a few digital-world tweaks to add even more versatility.

Never run out of stock!

    And unlike real films, FxAndy makes it easy with perfect exposure compensation, no dangerous chemicals, simple latitude adjustments and — most importantly — no wondering where you’ll find the next warehouse stash of long-discontinued film.

Not presets; real software inside.

    These simulations aren’t presets FxAndy is a full simulation suite with thousands of simulator combinations available, plus infinite variations of parameters, almost all of them keyframable for subtle and dramatic effects.

Famous in still photography

    FxAndy is the brother of Andrea – Film Simulation for Bibble 5, the pre-eminent film simulator for the RAW processor Bibble 5. Andrea is an essential part of the style of professional still photographers all over the world, and now with the completely rewritten and speed optimized Final Cut plugin, the same looks are finally available for cinema.
