ProCCTV Tutorial for Final Cut Pro X
Learn how to create surveillance camera effects in Final Cut Pro X with theProCCTV Lesson 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. Once, you have your footage in the timeline, scan through the ProCCTV presets in the effects library. Select the screen layout that you like. Drag one of the presets of the layout on to your clip in the Final Cut Pro X timeline. For this example, we will use the “Dualsect Channel 1” preset… from the “Dualsect 1” configuration. Now, let’s repeat this step with a second clip to complete our split screen. Drag another clip to the timeline underneath your first one. Make it the same length. Then apply your ProCCTV effect. We will apply the “Dualsect Channel 2” preset to complete our layout.
Step 2 - Customize the Effect
Now, let’s customize the look of our surveillance camera effect. Click on one of the video clips in the timeline. Use the on-screen controls to position, rotate and scale your clip within its designated area. Now, go to the Inspector window. Use the “Effects” drop down menu to choose the closed circuit look that best matches your scene. Then use the Effect Controls to calibrate the color and quality of the footage to your liking. Once you are done setting up the surveillance look on your first clip, repeat this step with the other side.
Step 3 - Adding a Frame
Now, let’s add a frame to our footage. Go to the FCPX titles library to locate the ProCCTV frame presets. Choose the layout that corresponds to the split screen you chose earlier. Drag the frame title layer above your clips on the Final Cut Pro X timeline and make it the same length as the footage. Select the title layer in the timeline and go to the FCPX Inspector window. Use the Control parameters to adjust the width and color of the border. Then use the text boxes to add your camera descriptions to the screen.
Now for some Final Touches. Go to the ProCCTV titles library. Drag one of the Timer layer on above everything in your project. Use the on-screen control and Inspector parameters to position and customize the timer. Finally, to give our footage a slow frame rate effect… Drag a “Stop Motion” title layer above our stack in the timeline. Use the “Stop Motion Amount” slider to control the frame rate of your footage. The lower the parameter is set… The more exaggerated the frame skips will be.
