Halloween Themed tutorials for FCPX and Motion
FCP.co posted these seasonally appropriate tutorials as well as a MacBreak Studio tutorial on Locking Fonts in FCPX. While I am more focused on the Halloween themed tutorials today, feel free to click here to go to the original post and view the other tutorial. Locking fonts is a technique that's helpful if you have a set of editors working on a project and you need to keep to a consistent graphic style.
Spooky Jump Cuts
Steve Martin from RippleTraining.com shows us a trick with retiming and markers to add a series of jump cuts to a horror clip. It very handy in creating that surreal, disjointed feeling needed in horror features, and allows the editor the ability to adjust the timing quickly and easily to acheive just the right creepy feeling.
Mark Spencer from RippleTraining.com, shows us how to make a seasonally appropriate swinging text in Motion.
