Ok folks - you asked for it. There are a couple of things that have bugged me about Final Cut Pro. The main one was a lack of an easy way to vignette a shot. So I present to you my easy vignette plug-in.
Just download the zip file from here
and copy the contents of the zip into:
Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/Final Cut Pro System Support/Plugins
The plug-in then appears in the 'color correction' effects tab. Have a play - I may post a tutorial at a later date, but don't count on it.
It comes with no warranty or money back guarantees.. It has not been tested with Final Cut Pro 5 and doesn't work with the 32-bit render option (blame Apple). But it has been used on TV shows for channel 7 & 10 as well as a fair few commercials - so it can't be that bad.
There is also the 'Facelight' plug-in which is a fast way to make under-exposed faces look prettier. But more on that later.Download Marcus's Final Cut Pro Plug-in's
