Aquafadas PulpFX Abstract 1.1 Plugin for Final Cut Pro

August 19th, 2010 · 3 Comments

Aquafada’s PulpFX Abstract 1.1 is a generator for Final Cut Pro. This is a well deserved improved upgrade from 1.0. When I reviewed 1.0, I liked the the plugin but I had some issues with how the generator handled displaying the titles of the pics. They have fixed that…here’s how.

Click on the Image Sources in the controls tab.

Once the edit window opens you can rename the pics and move the pics in what order you want it to appear in the slideshow. You can also delete or add photos to the slideshow. Something that the previous version did not do within the plugin.

They have also added “Small Moves” another generator to their cool list of slideshows. Small Moves or better know to editors as The Ken Burns Effect is a generator that I will be using quite frequently.

I’m surprised that this filter isn’t in the default filters in Final Cut Pro. It is easy to use and very effective. It also allows you to animate the rotation and the X & Y axis. Pretty sweet generator that you will be seeing in action with Often Awesome the series.

Check out the other great slideshows that this generator does on Aquafada’s youtube page.

$49…purchase this plugin. Their first version I suggested to hold off until they upgrade and the upgrades and addition of Small Moves makes this buy a no brainer. Especially if you are constantly using images in your videos. This is perfect for any wedding or event editor and especially an editor that is doing a family project.

You can download the latest FxFactory Pro and use it for free for 14 days to try out this plugin.

    So from what you wrote, this plugin allows you to make a slide show from photos and apply titles. The embedded video titled “small moves” just dissolves from one photo to another with the last photo staying on the screen for the last 45 seconds of the one minute movie. There are no titles and no Ken Burns style “small moves”. Did you embed the wrong video?

    I need to replace that video with one that I used. That is from PlupFx but it doesn’t show all the bells and whistles. I’ll get on that.
