    I’ve been looking for these type of effects and generators for many years. They are excellent tools now in my tool box. The price was good too. Thank you for bringing these Power Tools to the public.

    this stuff doesn’t work for me. I downloaded power tools but when I’m in fcpx and click on the effects that come with the download, all I get is a red screen with a white letter T and some yellow triangle with an exclamation point. I drag the effects on to a clip in my timeline and nothing happens.

      You have to have FCPX 10.4.7 or newer. Upgrade your copy of FCPX and you’ll be good to go.
