This add-on has so many effects, animations, and filters that it may seem a bit daunting at first. But once you jump into the program and start blazing around the simple to navigate interface you'll fall right into a cozy comfort zone that you'll never want to leave.

The paint effects put artistic style presets such as watercolors, drawings, 3D effects and more at your disposal. The tilt shift effect creates the illusion that real images are miniatures and does it with a click of a button. The add-on has tools which enable users to correct videos or add bevels and text effects to titles and logos. The ability to adjust contrast, color, brightness, and focus makes this plugin indispensable. Each effect that is applied is rendered at high speeds when using a GPU enabled graphics card.

Mercalli V2 Pro

Whether you have shaky video, like to shoot handheld, or suffer from rolling shutter syndrome Mercalli Pro V2 is the right plugin for you. This program is a life saver for video that needs to be optimized for the best viewing experience. The program stabilizes each frame at the X, Y, and Z camera axis, which creates amazingly precise video stabilization results. Mercalli lets the user choose from several Dynamic Camera Options (called Virtual Stabi-Cam) which gives greater control of the level of stabilization based on need and preference. The Univeral Camera is the default and is best for most situations. Glide Camera can be used when tracking an object across the screen. Rock-Steady Camera provides the steadiest shot and is best for simulating a static tripod shot. The Alternative Camera is best if the other options are unable to create the desired results. One of the most impressive features is the rolling-shutter correction. Some cameras have rolling shutter which when panned quickly. This creates jello and wobble which degrades the overall quality of the video. Mercalli's rolling-shutter compensation puts that shutter back in its place for creating crisp clean footage for your projects. The plugin also includes several SmartBorder™ options. This technology reduces the need to zoom in after the stabilization proces. The borders of the original video stay intact. This plugin is great for action cams, handl held shots, and a myriad of other uses.
