XEffects Viral Video Thirds is a set of titles, effects and transitions for Final Cut Pro X that combine to make compelling and eyecatching videos. Big, bold and colourful with lots of movement, this set of 35 plugins is perfectly ‘on trend’ for many uses from broadcast productions to social media posts.

Split media up into vertical or horizontal sections, apply a text overlay and then animate between different stacked thirds.

Keep it simple or build complex layered sections and animate between them with sliding panels or a custom 3D rotating Rubic Cube transition.


– All Transition & Effect Plugins work with video or images
– No cumbersome drop zones for better speed, timing and audio retention!
– Masking plugins to split screens into third or ninth segments automatically
– Built in colour palettes or use your own custom colours
– Resize and colour individual words for impact
– Easy to animate text, choose the in and out direction of travel
– All third transition effects match panels for perfect alignment
– Many different adjustable parameters on transitions such as direction, order, reflections, camera angle & borders
– Pin sharp results even in 4K FCPX timelines.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
