AnimatingÂ withÂ ProDistortÂ inÂ Final Cut Pro X
Creating Distortion Effects in FCPX
ProDistort is extremely easy to use in Final Cut Pro X. Â Start by placing a picture or video clip in the Final Cut Pro X timeline.Â Place one of the title presets above the media. Â Next, adjust the title handle to tweak the animation timing. Â Use the on-screen controls to change the position, rotation amount, and rotation radius. Â Lastly, compound ProDistort and your object.
Adjusting Animation Speeds
ProDistort presets are built as titles to allow editors to have complete modular control over animation timing. Â To adjust timing,Â simply drag the handles on either side of the title preset. Â The shorter the title layer, the shorter the duration of the animation and vice versa. Â In addition to overall timing, ProDistort also allows users to adjust the speed method with a drop down menu that can be found in the inspector.
Stylization Options in FCPX
Utilize simple sliders to adjust the stylization of the animation.Â Â For a cinematic look, combine the blur, prism, and brightness sliders in varying degrees. Â For a smoother look, bring the slider values closer to zero. Â With suction strength, editors can influence the speed of the animations in relation to the overall duration of the title layer.
Intuitive On-Screen Controls
ProDistort allows video editors to animate and distort object(s) in a scene without having to set a single keyframe. Â Utilize the on-screen controls to change the suction point position, rotation animation amount, and rotation radius. Â Create swirling and or suctioning effects in varying speeds to animateÂ green screen footage, .png pictures, files, or entire scenes in/out with incredible ease. Â This plugin is a Final Cut Pro X exclusive plugin.Final Cut Pro X – Apple
