Jaap H. Boerhof originally founded Film Impact in 2010. Back then, Jaap was working as a self-employed video editor for about six years. The very first plugin was Impact Push, which originated in 2010. Two years later, the first set of video transitions was launched, called Transition Pack 1, followed by the release of Film Impact Transition Pack 2 , Transition Pack 3 and Transition Pack 4 in the following years.
Today we offer a broad range of creative tools and video transition for Adobe Premiere Pro that are being used all over the world. Our Qualities include building premium video plugins using technical knowledge and a creative mindset. We aim to create professional video editing tools that are easy to use, versatile and stable.

With Jaap H. Boerhof both having a degree in both Computer Science (University of Twente, Netherlands) and being a Drama Teacher, two separate worlds are brought together.
The team was expanded in 2018 with developers Martijn and Carl. This allows for the creation of new creative tools and video transitions, as well as adding more supported platforms and services in the near future. Additionally, we work closely together with several partners for Marketing and e-Commerce, keeping our hands free to do the stuff we do best.
We’ve got a team of mad scientists with over 35-years of experience in the graphics industry that spent quite a lot of time optimizing our algorithms for maximum performance using GPU acceleration, optimizing every bit of data while still maintaining the very best in image quality. This allows for some of our video transitions to approximate real-time performance levels on Full-HD and even 4K resolutions.
