Freebie: Final Cut Pro X: Christmas Lights Generator
Fox Mahoney created this little generator a few years ago, and it’s perfect for the holiday season when you want to add a little sparkle to your project.
Fox Mahoney states, “This one runs a little heavy on processing resources if you load it up with a lot of lights (complex replicator). Just beware. The scene with 160 little lights took several minutes to render a 10 second (compound) clip. While I’m thinking about it — to maintain the flashing timing if need to shorten the generator, it’s best to leave it at 10 seconds, make a compound clip and cut the compound to size. I wouldn’t recommend stretching out the generator longer than 20 seconds if you need a decent flashing speed.”
