ProChrono Tutorial for Final Cut Pro X
Learn how to create a timeline in Final Cut Pro X with the ProChrono Lesson.
Step 1 - Preparing the Timeline
Let's begin by scanning through the ProChrono presets in the FCPX Titles Library. Drag and stack a few of the Event title layers in the FCPX timeline. For this example, we will use 1 single event, 1 double event and 1 triple event preset. Now stagger the layers to create pauses in the animation. Once you have everything lined up the way you want, lay a “Line” preset over all of layers and stretch it to cover them all.
Step 2 - Filling the Drop Zones
Now let’s fill out our Drop Zones. Go to the media library and select an image and drag it into the timeline below an Event. Line an image up with a Drop Zone and make it the same length. Select the title in the timeline. Now click the first Drop Zone icon in the Inspector window. Select the video clip as close to the beginning as possible, and click the blue "Apply Clip" button in the FCPX Viewer window. Once the images are in their designated Drop Zones, you can discard them by deleting or disabling them in the timeline by pressing “V” on your keyboard. Repeat this step with other two Events.
Step 3 - Customizing the Timeline
Now let’s customize the look of our ProChrono timeline. Move the playhead over the middle of the first event and then select it. Use the controls in FCPX Inspector to adjust the reflectivity, rotation, scale and color of the event. Then fill out the description and date text fields. Repeat this step with the other two events.
Now for some Final Touches. Go to the ProChrono presets in the Titles Library. Place a “Background and Camera” layer over everything in the timeline and make it the same length. Select the layer in timeline. Then go to the FCPX Inspector. Use the controls to adjust the Vignette and color of the background. If you want the background to be a video instead of a color you can fill this Drop Zone as well. Lastly, use the Camera Controls to rotate your timeline.
