Version 4.8 adds three new Essential Transitions to your editing toolbox!

Ever looked for a Clock Wipe in Premiere Pro and noticed it wasn’t there? We’ve got you covered…

Clock Wipe Impacts

Now that is a classic video transition that makes the viewer aware that time has passed.
And we’ve added all the options you need.
Positioning controls to set the origin of the effect.
Feathering options can make it gentle and soft.
The repeat options will turn this transition into a star-wipe!

Frame Impacts

Another classic reveal is a way to zoom in on a map. As if the next scene was shot right there. Choose any origin point from where the effect will start. Optionally add a border around that, and you’ve got Frame Impacts. This transition will add a stylized look to your edits. Play with the roundness, colors, and glow amount to give it that personal touch.

Linear Wipe Impacts

Linear Wipe Impacts is an actual video transition with options for feathering and edge softness. Dial any angle without pixelation. Then play with the mirror and repeat options. Apply it to your texts, logos, photos, and, yes… video clips too!

More interesting features:

  • Cropping Section: Visual feedback while modifying the cropping area!
  • Page Peel: New dolly feature
  • Liquid Distortion: Added Master Slider

While we work on Film Impact Version 5…

Version 4.7 holds a wide range of added features and improvements.

 In the new 4.7 update, we have moved away from OpenGL entirely. From now on, all Film Impact plugins are native CUDA, OpenCL, and Apple Metal plugins
Note: We support M1 ever since version 4.4.7

Why move away from OpenGL? Well, it is expected that Apple will remove OpenGL support sooner or later because it has been deprecated for years now.

As a result of the update, all our plugins get improved speed and rendering, along with some great additional features like visual feedback when dragging (anchor-) point controls.

With this update Film Impact is future-proofing its cutting-edge technology so that you can freely express your unique creativity using our unique creative tools!

After all, everything that we want is the freedom to express our creativity in the most authentic way, isn’t it?

And this is exactly what this new update is doing - or should I say, this is exactly what Film Impacts has been doing for all these years.

Being always up to date with the latest changes is what is allowing us to bring you the best of the best experience and a level of comfort mixed with practicality while working with our software.

Many cheers from the entire Film Impact Team

Fun tip: Play with the 'Surprise Me' Button to get a sense of the capabilities of this effect.

Fold Motion Impacts

Expand your transition styles with the Fold Motion Impacts, which folds away from the previous graphic while adding a pristine look with our SmartVideo™ 3D Motion Blur Engine.

Mirror Impacts

Reveal your next scene with a two-sided push at any angle. And it adds motion blur in the mix. Did we mention it can rotate too? This video transition works with any footage —

3 new tools and many added features

Light Sweep Impacts

Add a Light Sweep to your logos and texts to highlight edges and accentuate each element with a beam of colored light. Your clients will love the way you’ve sparked their logos and make them stand out. This brilliant tool uses an internal 3D normal map to shed the perfect light onto each element.

Glitch 2.0 Impacts

The existing Glitch transition has been re-designed completely from the ground up.
With more controls and real-time playback, this is a new must-have video transition.
From a visual perspective, this video transition has evolved dramatically. Normally we take great care in preserving old render behavior. With the Glitch, we’ve taken the liberty to re-design the entire transition and move away from our older OpenGL implementation — which means we cannot guarantee exact old render behavior, but hey… That’s a Glitch! We are sure you will enjoy the new Glitch 2.0

Panel Wipe Impacts

Reveal your next scene with one or layered glass panels with superb colorization and lighting options. The number of customization options is high. Start by hitting the ‘surprise me button to quickly explore the options. You’ll find this transition is awesome for revealing your next clip or to transition into your end titles and final pay-off. Panel Wipe is an elegant and stylish video transition that you’ve got to use in your next video!

New Features:

  • Wipe Impacts: New colorization blend modes
  • Liquid Impacts: Continuous motion controls (Zoom in and out vs. Cross Zoom)
  • Light Leaks: Added vibrance- and rotation-controls
  • Motion Camera: Circular wipe option added
