ProReveal Tutorial for Final Cut Pro X
Learn how to reveal media with the ProReveal Lesson.
Step 1 - Preparing the Timeline
Let’s begin by selecting a clip in the FCPX media library to use as a background and dragging it to the timeline.
Once, you have your footage in the timeline, go to the FCPX titles library to locate the ProReveal presets.
Scan through the reveal types and select the one that best matches the look you want. Then, drag the adjustment layer above your footage on the Final Cut Pro X timeline and make it the same length as the clip.
Step 2 - Positioning the Mask
Once we have our reveal layer setup, it’s time to adjust the position and scale of our mask.
It’s easier to do these modifications when looking at the blue mask placeholder, so we will make these changes before importing our logo media.
Select the ProReveal title layer in the timeline.
Then go to the Viewer Window. Use the center control point to position where you want the mask to go. Then use the outside control box to adjust the height and width of the mask.
Finally, use the handle attached to the center point to adjust the rotation.
Step 3 - Customizing the Mask
Now that our mask is in place, let’s adjust the shape and texture of it.
Go to the Mask Controls section of the FCPX Inspector window.
Check the “Paint Edges” box to see the pressure lines on each paint stroke.
Next, use the overall opacity slider to change transparency of the revealed layer.
Then, go to the Opacity Over Life gradient. Drag the white and black boxes along the line to control how fast you want the mask to fade in and out.
Then adjust the arrow between the boxes to control how gradual these fades will be.
Next, use the flip checkboxes to change the direction of the mask animation.
Finally use the line spacing and roundness to shape the paint strokes.
Step 4 - Customizing the Animation
Now let’s adjust the animation of our mask reveal.
Go to the Animation Controls section of the FCPX Inspector window.
Use the Animation Type drop down menu to choose if you want the mask to reveal or hide your logo.
Then use the offset sliders to change how much you want the start and end of the animation to be delayed.
Next choose the “Wriggle Type” to control how you want the paint lines drawn on.
If you would like to add a wriggling, stop motion look to your film, you can turn the wriggle amount up.
Then you can use the Frequency and and Noisiness sliders to adjust the speed and jitter of the wriggles.
Now that we have our animation setup, let’s import our logo into the reveal layer.
Select a logo png in the FCPX media library and drag it to the timeline.
Select the ProReveal Adjustment layer and go to the Inspector window. Click on the drop zone placeholder.
Then click on the image in the timeline and click the blue "Apply Clip" button in the FCPX Viewer window.
Once the media is inside the drop zone, you can discard the image from the timeline.
Finally, select the ProReveal layer and go to the Inspector window. And, adjust the object position and scale settings so that the logo fits the mask.
