Plugins are additional software components that integrate with your video editing software to extend its functionality. They offer a wide range of features, effects, transitions, and tools that aren't typically included in the standard editing software package. Think of them as add-ons to a program that unlock new creative ideas and aim to streamline your workflow.


With the Motion Array Hub, we’ve packaged a large number of plugins into one place, making it even easier to manage and use them. Our highly curated selection of plugins is designed to complement your editing process, offering a diverse array of effects and tools to elevate your content.


On Motion Array, we also have our legacy plugin pack for Adobe Premiere Pro. These are a selection of drag-and-drop transitions you can use in all of your projects.
