for Beauty Box, Flicker Free, Samurai Sharpen
Final Cut Pro X is moving to a new plugin architecture (FxPlug4) with the latest release. For Intel Macs, the current plugins (FxPlug3) will work just fine for the foreseeable future. If you're on Apple Silicon, you need a version of our plugins that support FxPlug4. And even on Intel Macs, Apple may eventually drop support for FxPlug 3. But that's a ways off.
We're busy working on the FxPlug4 versions of our plugins, but we also want to support Metal, Apple's new GPU architecture that is also needed for Apple Silicon. So we're trying to roll both technologies into one update. We expect to have plugins that support both Metal and FxPlug4 before the end of the year. In the case of Flicker Free, much sooner. Hopefully we'll have at least a beta of Flicker Free, Beauty Box Video, and Samurai Sharpen by early December
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get the beta version of the plugins (please let us know what you own) or be put on the waitlist if it's not ready yet. We're keen on getting this out but it's not a small undertaking. So we're doing the best we can to get it out asap.
The Beauty Box Video skin retouching plugin acts as digital makeup in post-production by incorporating state-of-the-art face and skin detection and smoothing algorithms. It takes the edge off of skin and makeup problems that can be visible with HD and 4K video. Realistically and quickly applying digital makeup that makes your talent look great, without making them look airbrushed or blurry. Making for happy talent and producers.
Flicker Free is a powerful and simple way to remove flicker from your video. We offer presets for different types of footage, making it easy to eliminate flicker caused by out of sync cameras, time-lapse, or slow-motion video. Flicker Free will work on any sized footage and is compatible with a wide range of video editing applications such as After Effects, Premiere Pro, FCP, Avid, Resolve, and Vegas.
Video footage is often a little soft and enhancing it to sharpen certain details can make a world of difference. Samurai Sharpen allows you to do this quickly with tools designed to let you easily isolate specific areas of the footage and only sharpen those areas. It's state-of-the-art sharpening for video footage that's precise and simple.
