Pixel Film Studios Launches Their ProCCTV Tutorial for FInal Cut Pro X.
Developers of third party FCPX plugins and themes, Pixel Film Studios, have announced the release of a new tutorial entitled ProCCTV Lesson for Final Cut Pro X.
“ProCCTV give our users the ability to create a surveillance camera effect for their project,” says Christian Austin, Pixel Film Studios CEO. “Our goal with ProCCTV was to make this plugin as user friendly as possible”.
Learn how to create surveillance camera effects in Final Cut Pro X with ProCCTV from Pixel Film Studios. From spy cameras to parking lot footage, the user can simply drag-and-drop the effect desired onto their footage and adjust the settings to any liking.
From spy cameras to security footage, ProCCTV can make close circuit camera effects both fun and easy in Final Cut Pro X.
The first step to using this plugin is by selecting a clip in the FCPX media library and dragging it to the timeline. Once the footage is in the timeline, the user is instructed to scan through the ProCCTV presets in the effects library to the screen layout that to the users liking.
As an example, if the user selects “Dualsect Channel 1” preset… from the “Dualsect 1” configuration, then repeats this step with a second clip to complete a split screen effect. The next step is to drag another clip to the timeline underneath the first and make it the same length. Then apply the ProCCTV effect by applying the “Dualsect Channel 2” preset to complete to layout.
The next step is to customize the look of our surveillance camera effect. The user is instructed to click on one of the video clips in the timeline, use the on-screen controls to position, rotate, and scale the clip within its designated area.
At this point, inside Inspector window, the user will notice the “Effects” drop down menu is instructed to choose the closed circuit look that best matches the scene.
After using the Effect Controls, the user will then calibrate the color and quality of the footage to the preference, then the set up process for the surveillance look is finished on their first clip. The editor is now given direction to repeat this step with the second side.
Now, the project is set up add a frame to the footage. The editor will go to the FCPX titles library to locate the ProCCTV frame presets and choose the layout that corresponds to the split screen chosen earlier. The editor will then drag the frame title layer above the clips on the Final Cut Pro X timeline and make it the same length as the footage. Then select the title layer in the timeline and go to the FCPX Inspector window. The Control parameters need to be adjusted by changing the width and color of the border. The text boxes are used to add a camera description to the screen.
