Welcome to Boris Final Effects Complete 5.0.1 for FxPlug. FEC FxPlug is a plug-ins package with 109 powerful visual effects filters re-designed for Apple's FxPlug plug-in architecture, providing seamless integration with Apple Final Cut Pro and Motion.

The heart of Final Effects Complete is its ability to generate full-featured two-dimensional and three-dimensional particle animations including ball action, explosions, distortions, jet trails, hair, liquid mercury distortions, spotlights, and color transitions. FEC FxPlug also delivers a complete range of unique auto-animating transitions. Ranging from graceful blur dissolves to radical warps; FEC FxPlug lets you easily create dramatic effects with minimal adjustment.
