CoreMelt Motion Graphics Box V2 is designed to run on Mac OS X 10.5 or later, and requires you to have additional software on your computer such as Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, Motion and Final Cut Express. Directly plugging into these pieces of software is a new feature for V2 of the CoreMelt Motion Graphics Box, and makes it much easier to use than the previous edition. This enables the interfaces to be more user-friendly. Features include ability to float above your video while you adjust the settings, track and pixilate a face in seconds, advanced vignettes with luma curves, veeyou meters, unusual transitions, glows and blurs.

CoreMelt offer a large selection of filters and other visual effects in the Motion Graphics Box package, including all 8 CoreMelt products; ImageFlow Fx V2, PolyChrome Transitions V2 TRX, PolyChrome Transitions V2 Delta V, Pigment, Gadget, Luminous and Shatter. A recent update has enabled it to be used with a wider range of software programs, including Final Cut 7.

However, although the price is reasonable for a plug-in such as this, the quality is not as high as you might expect from other plug-in packages that are also available for video editing, at much higher costs. The CoreMelt Motion Graphics Box V2 is a good compromise on price and quality, though. It is a dramatic improvement over the original CoreMelt Motion Graphics Box, and will now enable you to add almost any visual effects to your video footage.

CoreMelt have provided a selection of online tutorials on their website to enable any video editor to get started with the package quickly and easily, even if your experience is limited.
