Water transitions / plug ins needed
on Oct 21, 2008 at 9:01:26 pm

Hello,
A client of mine wants to add some water / liquid transitions to a slide show he is editing. For reference, we have used the "ripple" transition that comes stock in FCP, but he is looking for others along the line of that.

I never really delve too far into the world of transitions and plug-ins, but I imagine there must be some sort of package I can buy that will include a few variations on water transitions. If anyone can recommend one to me I would greatly appreciate it.
I am using FCP 6.0.3 if that makes a difference.

thanks in advance
Dan

Access to After Effects?
Super-realistic water ripples are easily created in Wave World. This is a generation system that creates grayscale movies that are used by other filters such as Colorama or Displacement.
I love Wave World.

I do have access to After Effects and that seems to be where all the good transitions are. However I am trying to avoid the whole export/import multiple applications thing just because I know I will have to be making little tweaks as I progress though.

It may come down to After Effects if I cant find anything simpler but right now Im hoping for some basic FCP transitions with a few adjustable parameters.

Thanks a lot, Ill look into Wave World

Yar, understand. but none of the better tools are going to be free.
Hit toolfarm and search for FCP plugin suppliers, there are dozens, and some offer good ripple systems.

Check out CGM. They have a number of wave transitions that they call dissolves. Also Stib's Transitions has one. BorisFX has a bunch and CHV's Distorion Collection. Google those and the sites should pop up.

Hi John,
Thanks a lot that was very helpful.
All the links I find to Stib's free transitions seem to be broken. Are they no longer available?

I think since its just a quick and easy job I might go with the CHV collection since they are cheap.
Again, thanks for the help.

Dan

I checked my documentation and here's the link for Stib's Transitions http://www.fxscript.org

If that doesn't work email Stib at: stib AT fxscript DOT org,

If that doesn't work, I can send you the latest Stib's that I have. His license (which follows) allows free distribution of the plugins. Let me know how to contact you.

It just takes me to a domain purchasing site.

I would love it if you could send it me.
