Why does Ripple Training use FX Factory?
FxFactory is a stand-alone application similar to the Mac App store for delivering and managing your plugins.
Using FxFactory you can download, install and test all plugins in trial mode free of charge before making a purchase.
During trial mode, all products are fully functional indefinitely, but will render a small watermark over your footage. FxFactory allows you to manage all your plugins in one place by allowing you to activate/deactivate just the plugins you want available within Final Cut Pro X (or other host application).
