Selective Focus with ProTiltshift in FCPX


 

Draw an Area of Focus

ProTiltshift allows video editors to create the illusion of a miniature scene using selective focus.  To use ProTiltshift, browse effects section and place tilt shift onto footage in the Final Cut Pro X timeline.  Next, cut-out the subject with the intuitive built-in masking tool and utilize the feather slider to soften the mask.  Lastly, use the blur slider to determine the degree of focus on the selected area.


 

Built-In Masking Tool

ProTiltshift features a built-in masking tool that allows users to expertly an area focus with the click of a mouse.  Start by clicking on the screen to create points to surround the subject.  Double-click a point to change its interpolation from linear to curved.  “Command + Double-click” to delete a point.  Double-click the line to add a point.  Pixel Film Studios’ built-in masking tool makes it easy to achieve a precise cut-out.


 

Simple Stylization Controls

ProTiltshift features intuitive stylization controls that can be used to enhance the effect of creating a toy scene.  Turn on the strobe checkbox to activate the strobe rate slider.  With the strobe rate, users can create a stuttering effect that simulates stop-motion films. With the saturation & sharpen slider, editors can achieve a more cartoonish look.


 

Keyframable Mask Points

ProTiltshift’s built-in masking tool is easily keyframable.  This allows users to manually track the movement within a scene so the focal point of the scene can be maintained.  To keyframe points, simply complete a mask and click the “Enable Keyframes” button.  Next, scrub through the footage and periodically drag the mask points to adjust the selected area.
