The four filters include Inner Shadow and Outer Glow, which create shadows on the inside or outside of objects, and the seven generators produce such objects as polygons, stars, arrows and more.
Pricing is US$69.95 as a download, $79.95 delivered on CD. You can view sample movies of the effects and screenshots of their control panels on the North Coast Web site. The company does not note the minimum version of Final Cut Pro or Express required.
