Aliso Viejo, California — Pixel Film Studios’ collection of video wall animations, FCPX Walls, is now available on the company’s store. With over 120 wall generators and free updates included, users will be able to present their video collages in a myriad of ways. Free updates will add to the collection; the latest October update added a Basic Walls category, expanding the collection by 15 presets.
“FCPX Walls is a seamless and innovative way to present a collage of videos,” said Lynn Silver, Media Manager of Pixel Film Studios. “With the user-friendly controls, video creators will save time and effort when creating dynamic transitions, intros, outros, or montages.”
30 Different Categories and Over 120 Wall Presets
Every wall contains parameters that users can adjust to change the camera movements, as well as the scene’s overall look. Categories include Animated Walls, Cube Walls, Bending Geometric Walls, Random Geometric Walls, and more.
Simply Drag and Drop
It’s easy to use the FCPX Walls plugin. Users will need to drag the desired preset into their timeline. Then, in the generator inspector, they’ll drag and drop every media file they want to use into the corresponding drop zone. Below the drop zone control, every individual panel can be customized through scale, position and rotation.
Users can either upload video files or still images into the drop zones. Mixing and matching can create a visually interesting result.
Utilize the New On Screen Camera Interface
Creators can take advantage of the new built-in, on screen camera interface from Pixel Film Studios to control the camera’s path around the wall scene. Click and drag one of the camera icons located in the top right of the viewer to easily adjust the position, rotation and zoom level of the camera.
Choose your Wall Preset, then Animate the Scene
Users can adjust the movement of the scene in a variety of ways. Users can either adjust the camera on screen or in the inspector, and set the start and end points to control the path of the camera through the scene. They will also be able to adjust the curve of the animation to smooth it even further.
Modify the Environment
Creators can adjust and customize the environment to make their wall feel even more immersive. They can add a background color, and adjust the reflections on the walls and floors of the preset to ground it into their project. Combined with the camera animation, creators can bring their wall to life.
Free Future Updates
FCPX Walls will continue to grow with future updates.
At a fixed price of $29.95, FCPX Walls is available now at pixelfilmstudios.com. Additional product information, including system requirements, can be found on the product page here.
