I have been highly requested by people on the YouTube channel to share some of the plugins I use to create the videos. In this post I’ll share what I’m using and where you can find other great plugins to help you make your videos faster and even a little more polished.
Before I get into the nitty gritty. It’s important to understand that I cut, or edit, my videos in Final Cut Pro. Many of the plugins or title packs I use are specifically made for Final Cut but a few are cross platform. It’s important to know that these things do not make you an amazing editor they are just another tool to help create the thing you’re trying to create.
I get plugins from three main places Motion VFX, LenoFX, and FxFactory. I’ve had great experiences with all these places or else I wouldn’t share them with you. Motion VFX is the most innovative in their titles and products but that does come with a more premium price tag. If you are just starting out, I’d really suggest FxFactory and LenoFX.
I’ll create a more in-depth breakdown of each of these services in a separate post. For now, I’d like to address the question.
I use Leno FX’s presentation title pack. I use this all the time not only for these motion tutorial videos but also my work at the university I work at. It’s great for highlighting information and I often pair it with their bullet point title pack to list out content.
Now one of the best plugins which allows me to get cool 3D camera moves for static content is achieved with Motion VFX’s mCamRig. A free plugin that allows you to add a 3D camera to any static content. This is a great plugin that shows just how much work the Motion VFX teams puts into their products.
As you can see in the inspector you don’t only have control over the space of the camera and content but also you can also add special FX to add a little extra flare to the shot in case you’re going for a more stylized look.
This plugin does take some time to get use to but once you figure it out its super helpful and powerful.
That’s it! those are the plug-ins you’ve asked me about.
