    low cost special effects software for OS X?
    Can someone recommend a special effects software bundle for OS X using imovie and FCP2. A low cost starter kit would be nice. The basics (green screen, laser, flying) we are not starting another ILM here. ;-)

    thanks all

    GeeThree has SlickFX Final Cut. They also have effects for previous versions of iMovie 08. There are no third party effects for iMovie 08.

    FCP handles green screen and has many effects. Motion may be helpful too.
    CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

    I took a look. Looks like a great set of FX tools and at the right price.

    Thanks again!
