ProKinescope Tutorial for Final Cut Pro X
Learn how to create and customize your very own professional kinescope effects with the ProKinescope Lesson.
STEP 1 - Preparing The Timeline
Let’s begin by selecting a clip or image from the FCPX Media library and dragging it to the timeline. Then locate ProKinescope in the FCPX effects library.
Scan through the variety of ProKinescope choices. For this example we will be using style 4 in the Two Tones section. Drag and drop the effect directly on top of your media. Once your Timeline is set up go to the Inspector Window.
STEP 2 - Color Correction Tools
First let’s start customizing our color in the Color Controls section. Choose a color for the black to and white to options. Clicking the down arrow will give you Red, Green and Blue sliders so you can get the exact color you want.
Next adjust the contrast and brightness sliders. After altering the contrast and brightness go on to adjusting the Levels. Clicking the down arrow will give you a black, white and bias slider.
Alter the translucent areas of the key by making them more solid Lowering the white slider will make the mask more solid. Raising the black slider will make the key more translucent.
Dragging the Bias handle right erodes translucent regions of the key, while dragging the Bias handle left makes translucent regions of the key more solid. Once you have the levels to adjusted move on to the Lens Imperfections section.
STEP 3 - Lens Imperfections
Next begin adjusting the Film Scratch opacity, Film Scratch speed and Film Scratch scale in the Lens Imperfections Section. After making those adjustments you have the ability to customize the size for each of the four layer film scratches that will show up in your effect.
The Video shift is a duplicate layer of your media which you can adjust opacity, position and blur amount. You can then adjust the lens blur amount as well as the horizontal and vertical shake.
Then adjust the layers slider which allows you to control how many layers will be affected by the horizontal and vertical shake. You can go as high as 8 layers.
STEP 4 - Style Controls
Once you have your Lens Imperfections adjusted move continue on to the Style Controls section. Start by adjusting the shadow radius and noise amount sliders. The Shadow Radius slider controls the distance as well opacity of the shadows in your media. Next adjust the pixellation scale, posterize amount and opacity.
Now for some Final Touches. Take ProKinescope to the next level by 1 of the 6 effects. For this example we will be using the Roll Effect. Drag and drop the effect directly on top of your media. Go to the Inspector Window. You can choose to randomize all the sliders by clicking the generate button or you can customize each slider to your liking.
