The old FXhome.com design was beginning to get a little wrinkly around the edges and so we decided to take a fresh look at the website to coincide with the launch of the new products.
All the regular sections are still present, although you can now find your way to them using a far more pleasant navigation system, rather than the previous menu which required you to have elf-like nimbleness.
Make sure you are logged in to your product registered account when you head over to the Store. That way you'll be shown all your possible upgrade routes, so you can pick the best option.
Chromanator users that bought after November 1st should check their email for an extra £10 discount on upgrades.
The cinema has had a major revamp, making the Top 10 an even more exciting place to showcase your movie. Can you make it to the #1 spot for ultimate exposure?
We’ve even added a fun little box office simulator, in case you’ve ever wondered just how rich you could be when you finally make it in Hollywood. I'm afraid banks don't yet recognise FXhome dollars.
The Preset Library
Veteran users will remember the AlamDV2 plugin database, which grew larger than any of us had ever anticipated. Now it's time to unveil a similar system for the new products - the Preset Library.
All of our new products have an in-built preset system. This enables effects engines and filters to be set up automatically at the click of a button. The Preset Library has been designed to make sharing presets with each other an easy task.
As the Library grows, you’ll find that there is no longer any need to spend time crafting a smoke particle effect from scratch in EffectsLab – chances are, somebody will have already done it for you and uploaded the preset. Please have patience as we continue to enlarge the preset selection!
The aim is to add AlamDV2’s easy drag-and-drop functionality, while retaining all the power, quality and flexibility that you have come to expect from our new products. For beginners it should prove to be an incredible new feature, and even experts will find their workflow greatly improved.
As with all website redesigns, there might be a few rough edges we’ve missed, so we’re relying on the community to provide us with as much feedback as possible. What do you like about the new design? What don’t you like? If you find a problem, or think you have an idea for improvement, let us know!
We’ll be reading all the replies to this news post, of course, and you can also talk to us on the live webchat or chuck us an email at email@example.com.
