Reprinted from a Noise Industries press release:
FxFactory will ship with a comprehensive collection of real-time plug-ins designed for quality and performance, taking advantage of modern GPU-based acceleration and graphics technologies only available on Mac OS X. The 100+ effects included are dynamically expandable.
FxFactory includes revolutionary effect management and authoring capabilities. Competitive offerings in the integrated effects industry limit users to a fixed set of plug-ins. FxFactory sets a new standard by letting end users create brand new effects in minutes, requiring no programming experience or coding. More plug-ins will also be available at the Noise Industries Effect Market, an online marketplace where visual effect artists can share and distribute plug-ins created with FxFactory.
“After revolutionizing the visual effects capabilities of Avid’s NLEs, we are thrilled to announce new products for Final Cut Studio, at a point where its user base is gaining creative momentum,” said Noise Industries Head of Business Development Niclas Bahn.
FxFactory will be available by Summer 2006. Pricing TBA.
