Redefining Video Editing with Creative Tools and Transitions

Welcome to Film Impact, where creativity meets technology to bring your video editing experience to new heights. Founded by Jaap H. Boerhof in 2010, Film Impact has been at the forefront of delivering premium video plugins and transitions for Adobe Premiere Pro.

Our Story

Inspiring Creativity, One Frame at a Time

Our journey began when Jaap, a self-employed video editor with years of expertise, realized the need for innovative solutions that could enhance the video editing process. In 2010, he introduced the groundbreaking Impact Push plugin, revolutionizing the way transitions were applied. This marked the beginning of a series of innovations as he continuously pushed the boundaries of video editing.

Two years later, we launched Transition Pack 1, captivating editors with a versatile collection of video transitions. The positive response encouraged us to expand our offerings, and we soon released Transition Pack 2, Transition Pack 3, and Transition Pack 4, each pack pushing the creative possibilities even further.

Today, our impact is felt worldwide as filmmakers, editors, and content creators rely on Film Impact's broad range of creative tools and transitions. We pride ourselves on building premium video plugins that combine technical knowledge with a creative mindset. Our goal is to create professional video editing tools that are easy to use, versatile, and stable, empowering you to bring your vision to life.

Our Founder - Jaap H. Boerhof

A Visionary Bridging Two Worlds

At the heart of Film Impact's success stands our founder, Jaap H. Boerhof, a visionary who seamlessly blends the realms of Computer Science and Drama Teaching. With a profound understanding of both disciplines, Jaap brings a unique perspective and expertise to the table.

Jaap's journey began with a passion for storytelling and a deep appreciation for the technical aspects of video editing. Armed with a degree in Computer Science from the prestigious University of Twente in the Netherlands, Jaap embarked on a path that would merge his love for technology with his flair for the dramatic.

Recognizing the immense potential for innovation in the realm of video editing, Jaap established Film Impact in 2010. Drawing from his extensive experience as a self-employed video editor, he set out to redefine the way transitions and creative tools were crafted and utilized.

Over the years, Jaap's relentless pursuit of excellence and his unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of video editing have propelled Film Impact to new heights. His visionary leadership has guided our team in creating a diverse range of premium video plugins and transitions that empower creators to bring their visions to life.

In 2018, Jaap's vision expanded even further as he welcomed developers Martijn, Carl and Marieke to the team. This pivotal addition allowed Film Impact to fuel its passion for innovation and expand support for various platforms and services. Together, they form a dynamic quartet that tirelessly works to develop new creative tools and transitions, ensuring that our users always have access to the latest advancements in video editing.
