Mettle FLUX | Getting Started in Premiere Pro

Charles Yeager ( gives us a walk through of the FLUX for Premiere Pro, so you can get up and running quickly. Download a free demo to follow along. Watch “FLUX: Getting Started in After Effects, which goes into more details on the features”.

FLUX comes with Camera controls for Premiere Pro, so you can easily add 3D Volumetric effects onto your timeline. Supported formats: Flat, 360° Monoscopic and Stereoscopic Over Under and Side-by-Side.

FLUX: 3D Volumetric Fractal Flames plugin. We have harnessed the beauty of Fractal Flames, made them 3D Volumetric, GPU accelerated, with a host of parameters. We think FLUX effects will quickly become a part of your software toolkit for all kinds of VFX.
