    Power Guides is the grid overlay plugin I’ve been wanting ever since I began using FCPX over 3 years ago. There’s a lot packed into this one tool: a Grid with density & opacity adjustment, Title/Action Safe zones, Aspect Ratio guides, Rulers, Center Cut overlays for both 4:3 and 1:1 for Instagram, and several color settings depending on your preference. Another feature I really like is the 4 custom Guidelines, easily adjustable using sliders or onscreen handles.

    This is one plugin I know I’ll be using in every project from now on!

    Extremely helpful and I think this is the best one out on the market. This is exactly what we needed to make our software that much better. This is worth way more.
