Automatic Duck Plugins are FREE!
After 10 years the founders of Automatic Duck have decided to give away their plugins for free!
Why? Well, they have moved on to working with Adobe (which can only be good news) and decided that they didn't want their plugins to not be used.
What is Automatic Duck? In short, it is an easier way to import/export sequences from Avid and FCP into other programs like Adobe After Effects or Pro Tools.
I've not used their plugins but I've certainly heard about them over the years. Here's an excerpt from their website regarding their decision: "We are very proud of the company we created and the products we lovingly crafted. But after 10 1/2 years the time has come for us to embark on new challenges and begin a new chapter in our lives. To that end Automatic Duck has partnered with Adobe Systems and will be working towards some excellent technology integration. I have joined Adobe as a full-time employee and Harry will be focusing on the technology integration as well as supporting other Automatic Duck partners.
Because we are so busy with these new projects we cannot provide the same level of support for our plug-ins that we used to, therefore we can't in good conscience charge money for them. But we don't want our popular tools to go unused if they are still useful to people. Therefore we have decided to make them available at no charge. Enjoy!"
