ProSkin 2.0 Tutorial for Final Cut Pro X
Learn how to achieve that perfect model look with ProSkin 2.0 for FCPX with the ProSkin 2.0 from Pixel Film Studios.
Step 1 - Preparing the Timeline
Let's begin by selecting a clip in the FCPX media library and dragging it to the timeline. ProSkin works best on close-up footage with natural lighting. Once you have your footage in the timeline, scan through the ProSkin presets and select the skin tone that best matches your actor. Then, drag and drop the filter on the clip in the Final Cut Pro X timeline.
Step 2 - Selecting the Skin
Now, let’s adjust the skin selection area. Go to the FCPX Inspector window. Make sure that the “Skin Isolate” checkbox is checked on. This will allow you to see just the effected area. Use the “Skin Selection” slider to control the tolerance of the skin tone selection. Then use the “Selection Softness” slider to make the edges of the effected area blend into the footage better.
Step 3 - Improving the Skin
Once you have selected your actor’s skin, it’s time to improve the quality and color of it. Use the “Skin Softness” slider to smooth out wrinkles and blemishes. Then use the “Brightness” and “Saturation” sliders to make your actor’s skin more radiant. Finally, uncheck the “Skin Isolate” checkbox to see the results. If the effect is too strong, you can lower the “Effect Opacity” to regain skin’s texture.
Now for some Additional Information. If you are working with extremely close-up footage and want to regain details in the facial features, you can activate the “Advanced Masks.” Use the control points to draw shapes around the eyes, nose, and mouth. Then use the “Roundness” and “Feather” sliders to fine tune these areas. The PROSKIN softener effects will no longer effect these masked areas.
