The Plugin Site has released a fresh collection of plug-in special effects for digital video and imaging professionals.

Plugin Galaxy for After Effects contains 20 plug-ins with 129 different animatable video effects. These can be used with After Effects 4 or 5, Adobe Premiere 6.0, Final Cut Pro 1 and 2 and Pinnacle's Commotion 3. A version is also available for Photoshop.

Everyday effects include transparency manipulation, blurring, texture and pattern generation, noise creation, mirroring and warping. The collection also offers advanced effects, including metal, chrome, neon, pop art, glass, rainbow and star effects.

All the effects are editable, so the 129 built-in effects can be used as a basis for hundreds more.

Plugin Galaxy for After Effects costs $99 from Plugin Galaxy. A demo version is also available.
