If you haven’t checked out the plug-ins from FX Factory, published by Noise Industries, in a while, you are missing some treats.
Noise Industries is headquartered in Boston, Mass, and provides both a development platform and marketing engine for a variety of 3rd-party plug-in developers. FX Factory has been around since FXPlug was added to Final Cut Pro – somewhere around version 5 of Final Cut Pro.
From an editors point-of-view, FX Factory simplifies buying, adding or removing plug-ins (enabling or disabling) with a simple button/checkbox system built into the FX Factory application. Even better, every plug-in comes with a free trial and 30-day money back guarantee.
