XEffects Glow Darks
Free Plugin for Final Cut Pro X FCPX
Glow Darks is a free Final Cut Pro X effect plugin that isolates low luminance within video and then applies a fully adjustable dark glow to that area. Very similar to the built in glow, but it does for lowlights what the normal glow does for highlights!
Published parameters for the plugin include glow radius, the opacity of the glow, the threshold at which the glow stops and the softness of the glow.
This plugin is great for adding 'some punch' to thin video without having to crush the blacks or alter the exposure curve. It can also help reduce noise in the blacks or be tweaked up to give a very stylised 'dark' look.
This plugin has been made free to download to the FCPX community, however please read the installation instructions and copyright restrictions. Be sure to subscribe to YouTube to get notifications of all new #freeeffectfriday effects.
