Noise Industries releases FxFactory 2.0.6

Noise Industries introduced FxFactory 2.0.6 for Adobe After Effects CS3/CS4, Apple Final Cut Studio and Apple Final Cut Express applications. It offers more than 300 visual effect plug-ins optimized for real-time performance on the Mac platform.

A free update for existing FxFactory 2.x users, version 2.0.6 adds preview thumbnails in the host application. The new thumbnail previews feature simplifies finding the right FxFactory filter, generator and transition directly inside the host application.

Other new features include Blocks Dissolve, which reveals variable-sized blocks in the destination image according to a static or animating pattern; a Banding-free Gradient generator, which lets users create a linear or radial gradient with certain features that can reduce or eliminate banding artifacts caused by codec compression; and select plug-ins that provide an extra parameter to control the working color space used by the plug-in.
