Slideshow Collage Theme with Photo Sheets in FCPX
Choose a Layout
28 pre-made layouts are included in this package so that users have the ultimate variety. Choose from layouts with 1 to 5 drop zones and a variety of different looks including horizontal and vertically aligned layouts. Each drop zone zooms forward, pans vertically, or pans horizontally depending on its selected type. Also, the speed of animation for each drop zone can be controlled individually. Finally, the text bar can be placed anywhere throughout the scene using an on-screen control.
Variety of Animations
Users can individually control the intro and outro animations using drop-down menus to select animations for each. There are 8 available animations for each end of the layout. All the animations hinge on one corner and animate either up or down. With these animation options users can easily select the corner, direction and speed in which the layout enters the frame. Then, users can do the same for the outro animation.
Add Overlays and Effects
The flickering light overlay allows users to add an extra layer of stylization to scenes. The overlay’s simple controls allow on-screen repositioning, color selection, light falloff, contrast and flicker amount. Additionally, if users want to color grade whole scenes at once they can drop the Colors & Effects tool into scenes and adjust parameters like desaturation, sepia, tint and value to perfect the look of the slideshow.
Comprehensive Title Presets
As with all themes, Photo Sheets comes with a Title Opener and lower thirds that animate from either direction. The titles here are designed in a minimal style so that they can efficiently complement any production. The lower thirds include a simple bar that can be recolored and resized to any form. The opener has a variety of controls so that users can create any look they want.
