The FxFactory Pro plug-in manager provides broadcast designers a user-friendly development tool to create additional effects plug-in packages for the Apple Final Cut Studio and Final Cut Express products. “Noise Industries' FxFactory filters have become one of the essence tools in my Final Cut Pro and Motion arsenal. Along with some of the effects from Noise Industries partners Idustrial Revolution and CoreMelt, I use these at least once on just about every project. Plus it's the only plug-in package that lets you use OS X's internal features to create your own special filters.
