Media 100 has released an update for Final Effects Complete, a collection of more than 100 plugins for non-linear editing software. The new version 4.0.1 adds support for Apple Final Cut Pro 4 and Adobe After Effects 6 (in addition to its prior support for Media 100 i and Avid systems). It's available now for Mac OS X. A separate version for Windows was also announced today that includes support for After Effects 6.

Final Effects Complete is a set of more than 100 special effects, from simple noise generation to particle-based molten goo effects, with 11 categories in all, including color correction tools, blurs, particle generators and image manipulation filters. It includes a variety of particle systems for generating 2D and 3D particles for effects like rain, snow, fire, smoke, explosions and hair. Some of the specific plugins in the collection include:

  • Mr. Mercury (cascading water, molten metal, dissolving plastic);
  • Ripple Pulse;
  • Light Burst;
  • Particle Systems;
  • Pixel Polly (an effect similar to a pane of glass shattering and flying apart);
