Automatic Duck plug-ins are now free!

Back in September, Wes Plate of Automatic Duck announced he was moving to Adobe. Automatic Duck's plug-in are one way to export from and to Final Cut Pro X and were highlighted by Apple when X was released. At the time, Wes said that Automatic Duck would continue. They have now sent out the following announcement about the Automatic Duck product line:

If you missed our mail last month you should check it out as it got a lot of people talking. Today we have a follow-up. Our web site has relaunched* and while the overall look of the site is similar there is a dramatic difference in how we are distributing our plug-ins.

Starting today Pro Import AE, Pro Import FCP and Pro Export FCP (both versions, for FCP7 and FCPX) are available at no charge. You read this right. Free.

We are unable to provide support at the same level as we have over the years, but we didn't want these plug-ins to go away while they remain useful. So if you can make use of these plug-ins in your projects, enjoy!

Thank you to all of our users, working with you for the last 10 1/2 years was a truly wonderful experience.
- Wes and Harry
