DIARY OF A PLUGIN WRITER #3

In this post

  • An update to a popular Freebie
  • Thank you for all the messages
  • What is the new favourite NLE??

It has been a while, but we are back in 2024 with an update to 2023!

The Final Cut Pro ecosystem has changed. There are now huge libraries that can be accessed with a monthly subscription. There are plugin writers that are systematically working through other developer's catalogues making copycat products. The market is pretty saturated, also there's a lot of free stuff out there.

Lots of free stuff on this site too and we need to thank customers who asked if the 2023 New Year's Fireworks plugin could be updated. 

We have done exactly that and included a 2024 and 2023 version in the download. Sorry it is a bit late, we will start working on the 2025 one now!

A bIg thank you for the thanks

Thank you to everyone who got in touch with the kind words about FCP.co. It was a hard decision to shut the site, but on reflection, the right one. There were many factors involved, from the rise of ChatGPT, Google offering answers on searches instead of links and the rather slow development progress of the Apple Pro Apps.

We have a new favourite NLE

Don't get us wrong, we still love Final Cut Pro and it would be our choice every time for long-form content.

But there is an another NLE that we like a lot. More soon.
