The following is a guest post by Peter Wiggins of idustrial revolution.
Rewind to February 2007 when George W Bush and Tony Blair were governing, The Departed won four Oscars, The Dixie Chicks dominated the Grammys and Britney Spears shaved her head.
In editing news, we were busy working with the universal binaries of the first Final Cut Pro Studio. Final Cut Pro 6 (Studio 2) didn’t arrive until NAB. February 2007 was also the month that the popular volumetric light spill plugin Volumetrix from Idustrial Revolution was born.
Until that day, FCP users could not get those gorgeous, deep rays and glows that are now ‘go to’ effects to liven up text and logos in productions ranging from SD home videos, to corporate logos, to 4K movie film titles.
Constructed with FxFactory, the plugin was designed to maximize the GPU, not the CPU as was the case of the existing FCP products on the market. It rendered damn fast at a very high quality too. The plugin was initially available for FCP, Motion, and (if you remember it) Final Cut Express!
Volumetrix 2 brought many new features such as glints and distorts and your animations could now go in any of 360 directions instead of 4. Further updates brought compatibility with Adobe’s After Effects and later after the makeover, Premiere on the Mac. We even gave it a tweak at the end of November ’15 by adding some new presets to highlight text.
10 years and thousands of customers later, we are proud that this plugin is now the longest serving 3rd party product in the FxFactory line up.
You can download the Volumetrix free trial to peruse the 70 one-click presets or design your own reveals and highlights using the rays, glows, glints and distorts.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our beta testers, reviewers, evangelists and more importantly all our customers for making Volumetrix a great success over 10 years. It was indeed the start of an Idustrial Revolution.
So where will Volumetrix be in another 10 years’ time? Still going strong we hope.

Z Multi View is a collection of nine multi-channel video generators, allowing you to display up to nine synchronized videos at once, with or without borders.
Border Controls: All the MV plugins have border controls for size and color – or just disable them for nice clean, edge to edge video.
Drop Zones: Its super easy to create these compositions. In FCPX, drop zone selection is fully supported. In Adobe Premiere & After Effects, its simply a matter of selecting which track you want for each channel.
Image Panning: In plugins where the aspect ratio of any channel is drastically different from the source, you can pan the image within the frame to set the focus. You can also animate this parameter for different effects.
Use with Syncronized Multi-Cam angles: Create frame accurate, syncronized Multi Views with your existing multicam footage. While its not fully ‘drag and drop’ it only takes an extra step or two to link your multicam footage with full sync.
Z COLR is a collection of minimalist, animated background generators with a multitude of uses. It’s perfect for title backgrounds, slides, color compositing elements, and even lighting effects.
Z COLR is available for Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, After Effects and Motion.

Z CMYK takes the classic CMYK filter to the extreme. It begins with the same color gradient sources common to our other generators, so you have total control over the source coloration. The CMYK filter is then applied with discreet oscillators modulating key parameters over time. You control the speed and oscillator type of the animation. Of course you can also keyframe any of the parameters. A preset system allows you to explore our factory settings, but also create and save your own looks. Z CMYK brings you dynamic comic-style POP to your compositions
Z Breath is a two channel gradient, similar to a vignette. The inner color ‘breathes’ by expanding and contracting over time. At slow speed it is a subtle effect, more dynamic than a still. At fast speeds, it approaches a flicker, which can be used to simulate film projection or other lighting effects. The inner color shape is freely resizable, so that you can create asymmetric compositions. A preset system allows you to explore our factory settings, but also create and save your own looks. Z Breath is “breath-taking” in its simplicity and versatility.
Z Bars is a meditation on color. Inspired by the myriad of possibilities and relationships within the chroma universe, it begins with five color selections that you control. We include dozens of presets of well known color palettes, but you are free to create and save your own. You can use color resources such as Adobe Kuler® with the integrated color picker to dream up fantastic combinations. Once selected, your color choices are expressed as vertical bars, meandering across the screen at various ratios, sizes and relationships. Z Bars is a bold design statement for any project.
Z Color Fields is a soft, oscillating, five color gradient on the vertical or horizontal axis. Using the same color engine as Z Bars, you select your colors, and adjust the oscillation and color mix over time. Use our presets as a starting point, or create and save your own combinations. It can be used for interesting compositing effects, in the same spirit as a gradient glass camera filters. Z Color Fields is deceptively simple, but in fact, a very powerful color instrument.
