Editing with TransFreeze in Final Cut Pro X
Freeze Frame Transitions
TransFreeze provides Final Cut Pro X users the means to create a unique freeze frame transition from one clip to the next. To use this transition, 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.
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 enabling “Edit Mode”, then 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 features intuitive customization options that are located in the top-right inspector window. With easy sliders, editors can control the slant of the mask animations along. Additionally, users can alter direction of each mask’s animations individually with checkboxes. Creating a dynamic freeze frame transition in Final Cut Pro X has never been easier.
