Is there any way to get more effects/transitions free for CC ?

The one thing FCP X has over PP CC is that it has many more included effects/transitions, basic things even like star wipes and circular wipes - CC doesn't seem to have a lot of that - does anyone know where to get free plugins from ?

    Many would consider the real basic ones are there already ..and the others are just gimmicky cliches that no one ever uses.

    I'm a guy who runs with the stock effects and build my own transitions and effects... but premier pro really does lack usable transitions with the exception of dip to white....

    Most of the ones you will use regularly are there and can be edited if you wish.  The others such as you mention are not considered relevant to an app like Premiere as they are probably not used by the vast majority of pro editors.

     

    With respect to editing, less is more and the basic transitions are still fades/dissolves.

    To create a custom effect, I usually start with a preset that is simiilar to the effect I want, apply it to the clip, change/customise as you want, then in the Effect Controls window right-click (Windows) on the Effect and you will see an option to "Save Preset".  It will then show up under Presets at the top of the list.

     

    Periodically it is a good idea to back up the presets (as it is any of the settings because the new Sync to Cloud doesn't seem all that reliable or does it even back these up, IDK) by clicking on the panel menu and selecting "Export" option.

    Hi Paul,

    I agree with you. Please make feature requests for new effects: http://www.adobe.com/go/wish

     

    If you are on PC, there are more stock effects over Mac. However, there are some third party effects for Mac that don't run on PC, like FX Factory.

     

    Thanks,

    Kevin
