Composites & Elements with ProRain: 5K in Final Cut Pro X
Shot in 5K Resolution
ProRain 5K was shot in full 5k full unparalleled levels of rainfall and water detail. 5K resolution allows film makers to match any level quality of film with simple compositing methods in just seconds.
Enhance The Weather
Didn’t get enough rain that particular day on the shoot? ProRain 5K can solve that problem. With windy rain, to light rain and heavy downpours, ProRain 5K has all the rain styles film makers want.
Includes Position And Scale On-Screen FCPX Controls
ProRain 5k also comes packaged with FCPX on-screen position and scale controls to help FCPX users scale their composites to the desired size. Due to the rain being shot at 5k resolution, scaling the rain up in an HD project will not result in quality-loss.
Works with Any Non-Linear Editing Software
ProRain 5K consists of 5K resolution composites that can work in any type of non-linear video-editing application. ProRain 5K also comes packaged with some very useful FCPX editing tools for easy placement and compositing assistance.

ProRain 5K Tutorial for Final Cut Pro X
Learn how to add high resolution rain to your footage with the ProRain 5K from Pixel Film Studios.
Upon purchasing ProRain you will receive zip folders of rain composite footage. You will also receive an installer file for the ProRain Compositing Tool. The tool will load directly into the Final Cut Pro X effects library. If you plan on using the particle footage often, you can import the files into an FCPX event for quick access. Or you can simply store them on an external drive and drag one into the timeline whenever you need it.
Step 1 - Preparing the Timeline
Let's begin by selecting a clip in the FCPX media library and dragging it to the timeline. Now, scan through the Wet Glass 5K composite footage folders. Drag the rain 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.
Step 2 - Customizing the Wet Glass
Once you have your clip ready, it’s time to blend and incorporate the footage into our environment. Find the HD Rain Glass Distortion located in the FCPX effects library. Drag and drop the effect on to the original media layer. Now we will need to insert the composite clip into the tool’s drop zone. First, you will need to compound the video clip “by-itself”. This is a strange but necessary step since the 10.6 update to FCPX. Move the playhead to the first frame of your compound clips and select the original media layer. 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 Compound Clip is in its designated drop zone, you can discard it by deleting or disabling them in the timeline by pressing “V” on your keyboard. Go to the Inspector window. Use the distortion sliders to adjust the look of the water refraction.
Now for some Final Touches. To help composite the drips seamlessly into the scene, we will add some other Pixel Film Studios plugins. For this example, we will use a Pixel Film Studios ProHue filter.
