How do the SlickFX plug-ins differ from your iMovie plug-ins?

The SlickFX plug-ins use Apple’s FXPlug architecture for adding plug-ins to Final Cut (and Motion). These plug-ins will not work with iMovie, and the Slick plug-ins for iMovie do not wok with Final Cut.

Compared to the Slick iMovie plug-ins, the SlickFX plug-ins and Final Cut offer more options and greater control than possible in iMovie. For example, one of the SlickFX plug-ins does more than 6 of our iMovie plug-ins!

Is there an upgrade for customers of your iMovie plug-ins?

The SlickFX software is a different product from our iMovie plug-ins. In our introductory pricing, we’re offering a $30 instant rebate to all of our customers – old and new – and without the hassle of filling out a rebate form and finding your old serial numbers!
