Preparing The Timeline
Let’s begin by locating FCPX Storyboard Corporate in the Generators library. Click and drag the Storyboard generator to the Timeline. Select the generator and go to the Inspector Window.
First you will notice the notes checkbox and text-box. The notes can be turned off at anytime. Next you can adjust the start and end controls. The start and end controls will be controlling how the camera moves in your storyboard scene. You can adjust position and rotation by adjusting the designated controls. Adjusting the End Offset slider will determine how fast or how slow your camera movement animates. For example moving the slider to the left will make the camera movement slower. Moving the slider to the right will make the camera movement faster. Next you can choose from a variety of speed methods.
Once you have the start and ending controls set you can move on to the setting controls section. First start by selecting a sky and background setting. After choosing a sky and background setting you can then adjust background depth. Next continue on by adjusting the interior controls. You have the option of keeping the interior on or off by selecting the check box. Underneath you have a variety of interior options such as setting, ceiling, and floor. After selecting an interior setting, ceiling and floor you then have the option of adding walls. Choose a left or right wall then adjust the wall spread by using the designated slider.
Next we will go over the Character Controls. First start by selecting the gender of your person. You can add up to 5 characters in your scene which you can flip, position, and adjust depth. If you do not want to position your character using the position slider you can use the on screen controls in the viewer window. Position your characters by clicking and dragging the control puck located on your characters.
