The Moving Picture: Shoot, Edit, Deliver
Jan Ozer | Over the years, I've gathered some thoughts on what it takes to produce and deliver a high-quality video experience and, to a degree, succeed as a video producer. While most of this will be old hat to grizzled veterans, perhaps some newbie will find these ramblings, and the associated resources that I point to, of use.
In the Studio: Using Boris Continuum Complete
David McKnight | The Continuum Complete package from Boris FX is unlike any other FX package I've seen. It combines video filters, transitions, motion tracking, a titler, a particle generator, greenscreen utilities—more than 150 effects in all. Moreover, each of these comes with actual usable presets right out of the box. You can see the gushing coming down Interstate 45 with the doors wide open: "If you buy only one plug-in this year ..."

In the Studio: Magic Bullet Colorista II
Jan Ozer | Most editors know how to correct the color and brightness in their videos to have them match the reality of the shoot, or what they wish was the reality of the shoot. The next level is using color and brightness adjustments to create a certain look or feel, or to enhance the footage in different ways. If your focus is solely matching reality, and you're working with decently shot footage or better, you're likely in good hands with the various color and brightness adjustments available in your NLE. If you're looking to create a distinctive look or feel, or are working with problem footage, you should consider a tool like Red Giant's Magic Bullet Colorista II ($299), which provides a highly configurable toolset that goes beyond any effects native to your NLE.

In the Studio: Red Giant Magic Bullet Quick Looks 1.2
Laura Randall | Magic Bullet Quick Looks (MBQL) gives you the same popular presets as the full-featured Magic Bullet Looks filters. The biggest difference is that you don't have the ability to edit or customize the look other than to control the amount of effect (0%-100%) on your clip. But if you're looking for a variety of preset looks that are easy to apply for a reasonable price, this is a great program.

Joe McManus | Apple's Final Cut Studio package contains just about everything a wedding videographer needs to create amazing videos, but I've always felt that it just needed a little extra help in certain areas, which is where third-party effects packages come in. Of all the FCS plugins I've seen, FxFactory Pro 2, with its 122 included filters, generators, and transitions, is the best value for the money.

Jan Ozer | The transitions and effects provided in Vitascene are highly distinctive and very applicable to a variety of events, including weddings, ballets, and other artistic productions.

As a plugin with Premiere Pro, Vitascene proved very easy to use.
