Finding unused media.

Hello, I'm trying to clean up a project. We switched from using duplicates to snapshots. This meant that before we had to create duplicates for compound clips as well. (don't ask ) Now that we've re-c
Project backup
by Andreas Zeitler 3 years ago
Hello, I'm researching ways to backup FCPX projects for longterm. As I see it there are files in a FCPX project that can be deleted because FCPX generates these files anew, when they are not present.
Re: Project backup

Thanks, Noah. I know that but it didn't answer the question. I didn't ask how to do delete render files, I asked what else can be deleted inside a .fcpbundle folder. I'd write a script to delete the R

I don't have a particular suggestion to you, but I can tell you what's been working for me, and what's not. When I started I thought I needed a big management software for all the clients that are com
Rename file on disk?

Hello, I know this is not possible with FCPX, at the moment, but it was a sometimes handy feature in the old Final Cut Pro. Is there an AppleScript to do this Is there anything else that does this By
Re: Rename file on disk?

That's not a feature of Final Cut. This is what the operating system does by itself. As far as I know the system keeps a file ID record for each file. Renaming a file doesn't cause the system to gener

Good morning, everyone. We have a little bit of a predicament. Our new intern uses Vegas Pro to edit, and the rest uses Final Cut Pro X. It's not a huge problem for us that he's using a different soft

Motion Blur plugin for Motion 5?
by Andreas Zeitler 4 years ago
Hi, Is there a Motion Blur plugin for Motion I have had good results with Trails, but as of my last post, it does not work so well in 3D projects. I'm also not 100 percent sold on the look. I would mu

Yes, only I need it on certain objects, and want to be able to turn it off and back on again, and it would be nice if it would work in Motion only. :D Thanks for the help.
Camera moves and weirdly frames objects since switching to 3D

Hello, I have a 3D scene in Motion with a couple of text layer and an object that I fly in using a couple of Motion Path behaviors. This was working fine before I switched the scene to 3D. Now the cam

Finally found the issue. Turns out using a Trails filter causes the camera to behave weirdly. Tested it with copy paste to a new project. As soon as Trails is on, the objects show up differently. It l

No idea either. I'll keep my eyes peeled. Just wanted to get feedback if it's just me. Thanks for the quick answer! Appreciated!
QuickTime Animation vs. H.264 for screencasts
by Andreas Zeitler 4 years ago
Hi everyone, I'm contemplating whether to use H.264 or QuickTime Animation for my screencast recordings. I've switched to ProRes since the introduction of FCPX, but the files are really really large.

Thinner outlines for shapes?

Hello CreativeCow, I need to make rounded rectangle with a gradient fill in Motion. So far so good. The problem is that the rectangle needs to have a very thin outline, but Motion doesn't let me set a

Try selecting Under Fill for the Outline Order (as opposed to Over Fill - the default) and turn on Preserve Width and you have full control over the width. Simon Ubsdell www.tokyo-uk.com

Hello CreativeCow, I am using some Motion generators in a project. I know that you can't change the start frame for a motion template in Final Cut. The generator effect title always sets itself back t

Make animation time available in Final Cut Pro X?
by Andreas Zeitler 7 years ago
Hi, I'm trying to make a "zoom in" effect in Motion 5. For editing it would be good to have a checkbox, pop-up, or slider that allows the editor to set the length of the zoom in, e.g. 5sec, 3sec, 1sec

Use the Ramp behavior on any parameter for which you want to publish the animation times. Alternatively, Exponential and Logarithmic give you dufferent animation curves that you may prefer. Simon Ubsd

Hi Paul, Thanks, but this is not a decision I have to make... it's the most common used format, no matter whether FCP likes it or not. However, I found the solution. I converted the recorded material
