FxFactory Block Party

Review:

 

Make your clips come to life with a transition that combines lighting and particle effects in 3D.

Party Like Your Deadline Was Yesterday! Block Party lets you transition between clips through a 3D animation that mixes particles and lighting. 50 built-in presets give you an instant taste for its features and a starting point for customization.


Highlights

Key Features

  • GPU acceleration: extensive use of Metal graphics technology means setup and rendering happen in real time. Is my Mac ready for Metal?
  • No keyframes required: customize the transition through its parameters and let the plugin figure out how each change affects the animation. Time not spent adding and tweaking keyframes is time saved!
  • Advanced camera settings: enable motion blur for smoother, more realistic results. Add depth of field blurring when blocks fly towards or away from the viewer. Adjust the virtual camera’s field of view to create the most pleasant geometry for the given parameters.
