XEffects Matrix is a free title plugin for Final Cut Pro that emulates the green cascading character design from the popular Matrix films. Just enter your main title text and the plugin will build automatically.
The plugin can be opened in Motion and fully customised for the colour of the cascading text, density, speed and position.
The font needed for the plugin to work can be downloaded from here.
The demo video includes a detailed tutorial on how the plugin is made using emitters and behaviours on the text.
This title plugin will only work with Final Cut Pro 10.5.3 or higher

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 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 FCP community.
We have no connection to the Matrix films or Warner Bros.
