At Hawaiki we provide elegant and full-featured solutions to common editing and compositing tasks - automating what can be automated, while also giving you the control to finesse the result when required - and at a price point that won't break the bank.

We put a lot of time and effort into refining the controls and interfaces of our plug-ins, simplifying where we can, but retaining the ability to make the fine-grained adjustments that pro-users expect.

All our plug-ins are tested rigorously on real world jobs before being sent out into the wild, and we spend a considerable amount of time testing and refactoring our code to maximise playback and rendering speed.

But don't take our word for it! Download FxFactory for access to unlimited-time trial versions of all our products. And if there's anything you don't like or think can be improved, don't hesitate to let us know. We're always looking to improve!

All the best,

Simon & Rob


Hi, I'm Simon Ubsdell, Creative Director of TOKYO PRODUCTIONS, a boutique creative shop specializing in movie trailers, sales promos and TV Spots for the independent film sector both in the UK and across Europe.

I have released a range of successful products for Final Cut Pro X, including Split Animator, PiPinator, Chrominator and ReAnimator.

I've been a film and video editor for about 25 years as well as being involved in motion graphics, sound design and mixing, music composition, visual effects and compositing, 3D modelling and animation, not to mention writing, directing and producing.

Previously I was the joint founder and Creative Director of The Picture Production Company based in Soho, London which became for a time the largest and most successful creator of movie trailers outside of the US.

My motion graphic and visual effects work has been seen on countless trailers and TV spots for a wide range of popular and hugely successful movies.

Rob Mackintosh - LAWN ROAD

Hi, I'm Rob Mackintosh, the founder of LAWN ROAD.

I've been in and around film, TV, IT and video for over a decade.

I've retailed Macs, sold cameras for Kodak, dust-busted medium format transparencies, shot weddings, conferences and commercials and had a starring role as an extra in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.

Lawn Road cuts through the orchards and wineries of Hawke's Bay, New Zealand, and it's the road on which I grew up.
