Boston, Massachusetts – Noise Industries, developer of visual effects tools for the post-production and broadcast markets, adds Andy Mees free Safe Guides plugin to the FxFactory family of plugins and generators. Designed for use in Final Cut Pro(R), Motion, Premiere Pro(R) and After Effects(R), Safe Guides includes preset guides for 4:3, 14:9 and 16:9 title and action safe areas, an EBU/BBC compliance override and center cross marker. The plugin comes with full custom guide controls, so users can set the safe areas to display according to the specific numbers of a delivery spec.
