Sapphire Edge v2 Visual Effects for Final Cut Pro from GenArts is a video effects plug-in package designed to enhance the look of a project in the least amount of time possible, enabling editors to meet tight timelines without compromising quality.
Sapphire Edge integrates directly into Apple Final Cut Pro (6 - X 10.0.5) and provides 575+ looks in a preset browser. The looks are generated from 31 effects and transitions and can further be modified with common and intuitive controls that don't require much (or any) time to learn.
Your purchase provides you with a serial number valid not only for the Final Cut Pro version of Sapphire Edge but for all versions. With this one serial number you can have the plug-in concurrently active in all supported host programs and even on up to two computers (but you can only use one computer at a time). You would just need to download the appropriate versions from the Genarts website and activate them.
Other than Final Cut Pro, Sapphire Edge also supports Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 - CS6, Adobe After Effects CS4 - CS6, Apple Final Cut Express 4, Apple Motion 4 - 5.04, Sony Vegas Pro 10.0e - 12, and Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD 11.
