Overview of the options available for creating accurate cuts, dissolves and wipes. The limitations and gotchas of Premiere Pro. And how you can improve your inventory of effects and transitions by using third-party plug-in’s from the Sapphire family.
Heres an update, Eran. Boris Red 5 for the Mac 64 has recently been released. It offers way more options and control for creating Premiere Pro 5.5 transitions. Ir also has a vast library of presets available. And at a price point less then Sapphire. I believe it is the best choice for editors looking for more creative options for transitions in PrP.
Tom, Thanks for your input. I agree about the premium price of Sapphire plug-ins, but I think you get a valuable product (V6 is even more impressive). As for FX Factory, I digg it as well, however as far as I know, it only supports FCP and After Effects. I really wish we can use it in Premiere Pro as well. It is also a Mac only solution.
I think Sapphire is good, but way over priced and dated. FX Factory has a lot of the same things with additional innovative ones as well. There is a certain snob appeal to owning Sapphire but better bang for buck with FX Factory.
