Is there a 3d plugin that would import 3d files into FCP X?

    Your Google search is as good as mine! (I haven't heard of one.)

    Understand. Didn't mean to sound flippant. The sphere of 3rd-party app-providers for FCPX is growing... but it's still small enough that most of us are familiar with most of their products. The main ones are: (in no particular order)

     

    CrumplePop

    Noise Industries

    Red Giant

    FCPEffects

    CoreMelt

    FXFactory

     

    OTHERS: (minor, IMHO)

    Automatic Duck

    Borix FX

    CHV Electronics

    Digieffects

    GenArts

    ISP

     

    Perhaps knowing these names will help your search!

    afaik, just one:

    the demoes are nice, but you very soon stumble into the main problem with 3D:

    compositing.

     

    a 3D-title is a seperate 'layer' with its own physics, aka lights, material etc.

     

    but… , when I like to add a simple Flying Saucer to my son's movie, I instantly run into trouble, if I want to make it look real, or at last 'integrated': position of sun, perspective, camera movements etc etc etc .....

     

    ... I guess, hobbyists like me have to wait another 10y for making my own Transformer movie
