Step 1 - Preparing the Timeline

For this example we will use the 5K composite inside of an HD project, to show that you can zoom in extreme amounts without worrying about pixelation. Let's begin by selecting a clip in the FCPX media library and dragging it to the timeline. Now, scan through the ProPixie 5K composite footage folders. The particles in the ProPixie video files vary in size, speed and focus, so you can layer them to create more depth in your scene. Drag the particle footage above your clip on the Final Cut Pro X timeline. Then, use the blade tool to cut the composites to the length of the clip. Since this is an HD project, FCPX will compress the 5K clip to fit the canvas. So, we will need to change the Spatial Conformity settings. Select the composite clip in the timeline and go to the Inspector window. Scroll down until you find the Spatial Conform drop down menu. Change the Type from “Fit” to “None.”

Step 2 - Customizing the Particles

Once you have your clip ready, it’s time to blend and incorporate the footage into our environment. Find the ProPixie HD tool located in the FCPX effects library. Drag and drop the effect on to the ProFlare clip. Select the ProPixie layer in the timeline. Use the scale, opacity and color controls to blend the particles into the environment. Then, use the on-screen control puck to position the flare within the scene.
