Aliso Viejo, California — Pixel Film Studios’ collection of HUD graphics and animations, FCPX HUD Mega Pack, is now available on the company’s store. Users will be equipped with over 500 HUD animations along with tools to streamline the editing process. Free and frequent updates will add even more value; the latest update in November added 50 new HUD elements, an animation tool, a bulge effect, a flicker effect, a glow effect, a 3D helmet HUD tracking tool, a lens flare, a light rays effect, a scan lines glitch effect, a screen overlay, and a composite tool.

“For users working on the next amazing sci-fi or futuristic project, FCPX HUD Mega Pack is a must-have,” said Lynn Silver, Media Manager of Pixel Film Studios. “With hundreds of HUD elements to choose from and tools to easily implement the effects to their footage, users will save time while impressing their audiences with stunning professional graphics.”

Over 500 HUD Elements in Dozens of Categories

Categories include Dials, Circles, Switches, Callouts, Progress Bars, Reticles, and more. Users can combine multiple HUD graphics to create a unique interface in their scene, or create full screen UI displays to immerse the viewer.

Drag, Drop, and Position with Simple On-Screen Controls

The polished controls make this plugin easy to use, even for beginners. Users will need to choose a HUD element from the Titles or Generators menu, then drag and drop it into their timeline. On-screen controls make it simple to reposition, rotate, or scale the element. In the inspector, users can even tweak the Blur and Focus of the graphic.

Users can even use the Built-in Motion Tracker to track HUD elements to specific areas of their footage.

Customize Each HUD Element with User-Friendly Inspector Controls

Not only can users modify the camera controls in the inspector, but they can also customize every single HUD element with simple controls. Some HUDs, such as callouts, come with specific controls such as length, prong color, and scale. All HUDs come with the ability to modify color, glow, and much more, giving creators unlimited possibilities for the look of their HUDs.

Of course, all HUD elements’ animations can be customized as well, from the start and end position to the amount of motion blur. Users will never have to worry about keyframes to create professional looking HUD elements with the FCPX HUD Mega Pack.


Track Elements to Helmets with the New 3D Helmet HUD Tracking Tool

Creators can take advantage of the newly added 3D Helmet HUD Tracking Tool, which makes it easy to apply HUD elements to helmet screens. Users will use the built-in Tracker to target a position of their footage that the HUD elements will follow. Then, after exporting the data, users can layer various HUD elements that they want to track to the helmet. With these simple tools, creators can enhance their scenes with sci-fi inspired helmet HUDs.
