Alex4D 360° Effects is a kit of simple to use effects that help filmmakers tell stories using spherical video in Final Cut Pro X. The plugins range from effects that stylise whole spheres of video to those that help viewers notice specific features of the 360° environment. As well as working with spheres of video, they also work with overlays such as logos, pictures and titles.
Alex4D 360° Effects is divided into six categories:
Repeat – to repeat footage and graphic overlays around the sphere
Highlight – to attract attention to specific parts of the environment
Blur – blur parts of the footage and overlays
Stylize – to change the look of whole spheres of video at a time
Masks – to help overlay areas of 360° content over other spheres
Flat – to make more of 360° footage used in flat non-spherical videos
As an instant bonus, the watermarked demo version of Alex4D 360° Effects includes three free additional unwatermarked 360° plugins that can instantly save time in spherical video production.
