As with all Pixel Film Studios plugins, the VFX Suite is super-easy to use directly within Final Cut Pro. Although the included Motion templates are only for Final Cut Pro, the over 500 composites included will work with any NLE, like DaVinci Resolve and Adobe Premiere Pro. All composites are shot in the highest fidelity on Red cameras, and include support for HD, 4K, and even 5K resolution.

Of course, users can push the effects a step further by taking advantage of the built in compositing tools in the effects library to customize the look and feel of your visual effects. Use blend modes on composite clips to have the effect fit naturally in a scene, and even stack multiple composites for an even more customized look and feel.
