XEffects Colour Rays is a free filter plugin for Final Cut Pro X that produces adjustable rays from video, stills or graphics, even those with alpha channels.
We took the built-in filter from Motion and added some important extra features. You can now colour the rays and set the threshold of the luminance where the rays begin. We've also added blend modes and a master effect slider.
This is a cool but simple effect, should you want bigger & better rays, then we suggest checking out the popular Volumetrix plugin. Take a look for yourself at the amazing effects with the free trial.
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
The free XEffects published here use the Motion Template Tool from Andreas Kiel to install into the correct place on your Mac. If you haven't got MTT installed on your machine, then click MTT to download the app.
Once MTT is installed, all you have to do is click on the icon once the disk image of the effect has been downloaded. Here you can see the Flare Lights MTT file highlighted on the right. You can of course put the effects in the correct folder yourself.
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.

Usage & Copyright
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 with 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.
