Red Giant offers subscription to video editing tools
Using a similar model as Adobe’s Creative Cloud, video effects maker Red Giant - creators of Trapcode and Magic Bullet - is making their post-production tools and plugins available via subscription.
Instead of buying individual software licenses, Red Giant's service called Universe allows you to pay monthly or yearly for access to their suite of products that work in popular video editing software such as Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere. Red Giant intends to provide a baseline free membership for basic access to the tools and two different paid membership tiers for high-end users. The premium monthly package, which offers a wider selection of plugins and editing tools, is $10 a month, while the annual plan is $99 per year.
Currently the public beta version is available for both Mac and Windows. For more information on the program and subscription packages go to the Red Giant website.
