Editing with TransFreeze Vol. 3 in Final Cut Pro X
Freeze Frame Transitions
TransFreeze Volume 3 provides Final Cut Pro X users the means to create a unique freeze frame transition from one clip to the next.
To use “Cut-Out First” presets, choose a video clip and hold the position of the frame you want to freeze with the hotkey “Shift + H”. Next, drag a TransFreeze preset into the FCPX timeline and align it to the frozen frame. Lastly, use the built-in masking tool to cut-out a section in your video footage and compound.
To use “BG First” presets, choose a video clip and freeze the first frame of the video using the hotkey “Shift + H”. Use the built-in masking tool to cut-out a section and compound the clips together. Place the compounded clip above a second video file to transition seamlessly.
Built-in Masking Tool
TransFreeze includes a custom masking tool that allows FCPX users to mask out any subject with a few simple clicks. Start by hitting “clear” to reset the points and enable guides. Next, click around the subject to create a custom mask. To add more points on the mask, simply double-click along the bezier. To delete a point, hold down the “option” key & double click. To adjust the curvature of a tangent, double click on the point connecting two vectors.
Intuitive Controls in Final Cut Pro X
TransFreeze Volume 3 features intuitive customization options that are located in the top-right inspector window. With an easy drop-down menu, editors can control the direction of the animation. Creating a dynamic freeze-frame transition in Final Cut Pro X has never been easier.
Motion Blurred Presets
With TransFreeze Volume 3, editors can choose between motion-blurred and non-motion-blurred presets. Motion Blur is an animation feature that simulates the illusion of real objects in motion to create a more realistic look and feel. Motion blurred presets can be slightly more render intensive so be patient when you choose to use them in Final Cut Pro X.
