As long as film as been an art form, snow has been used to evoke the mood and feel of a scene. From Citizen Kane to It's a Wonderful Life to Home Alone, snow can elicit childhood memories and happiness. Conversely, in movies like Fargo or The Shining, snow can also be used to create drama and make characters seem cold and trapped. With ProSnow from Pixel Film Studios users can create these moods in their scenes in Final Cut Pro X.
"ProSnow is the perfect complementary plugin to our other extremely popular weather plugin, ProRain," said Christina Austin, CEO of Pixel Film Studios, "Fans of ProRain were asking for snow effects for FCPX from the moment we released it."
With PROSNOW's 30 unique snow composites to choose from, users can take their footage anywhere from the first snow flakes of the year to a heavy snow storm in the click of a button. All 30 of the snow effects were created with real snow footage; ProSnow contains no digitally generated images.
Using one of the light and soft cooling grade from ProSnow helps convey happiness. With the 30 cooling presets in ProSnow for Final Cut Pro X, users can create any mood for any snow scene. Simply scrub through the ProSnow plugins in the fcpx effects browser and choose the grade that best works with their footage.
Designed to work inside Final Cut Pro X, ProSnow eliminates the need to composite footage or create cool color grades. Users can simply take command of the weather with ProSnow using its easy and powerful controls in the FCPX Inspector.
