XEffects Outside Glow is a free effect plugin for Final Cut Pro X that adds a coloured glow around an irregular object. Great for text as well! There are adjustments for size, brightness, colours and horizontal and vertical spreads. Go from a thin 'outline' around an object to a wide soft glow, all possible with this plugin.
This video also shows how the plugin was made in Apple's Motion and then published to Final Cut Pro X.

We take care to ensure that the plugins uploaded to this site are of high quality, originated by us and contain no code or media that should harm a user's computer.
However, as with all software, we recommend that you don't load up your Mac with new products mid project and we accept no responsibility for any losses.
We love designing free plugins and publishing them for people to use. Unfortunately there are unscrupulous companies out there who like to download free effects and with the aid of some slick marketing, republish them as commercial products.
Therefore, although these effects are free to download without registration, free to install and free to use on whatever production you wish, even broadcast:
You may not:
Upload the effect plugin, disk image or zip file to any third party site.
Modify the effect and republish on any third party site.
Incorporate the Motion layers into other effects.
Use any part of the downloaded free effects from this site in any commercial product effect, plugin or template without the prior permission of Idustrial Revolution.
We hope you understand our feelings on the above as we want to keep releasing new free plugins to the FCPX community.
