Post Production Tip: Three Great Plugins

Videomaker by Greg Olson

Seeing a finished product on screen can be dazzling. The polished footage, pristine sound, and high-end effects all come together to form an effective, moving piece of art. As a video professional, I’m constantly asking myself, “how did they do that?” Many times the answer is simple. They had the right plugins in the hands of a capable editor.

Some people have the luxury of spending large amounts of time in post-production, hand-crafting looks and special effects from the on board tools in their editor.
