BG: Effects in FCP X
"BG PIP(e) Dream"
This is an FCP X Effect preset.
This effects helps you create a Picture-in-Picture effect (PIP). There is already plenty of these types of presets been created by the user community. So this is just my take on it.
I could've sworn I had already made one. Well I had, just forgotten to get it out to the big wide world. I have built a few extras into this PIP effect that may also be handy.
- Resize the PIP frame using Mask Scale
- Give your picture a round edge
- Adjust the mask feathering
- Globally position / scale / rotate / shear the PIP effect
- Reposition / Reframe / Rescale / Shear the video within the frame
- Crop controls for each edge
- Crop feathering
- Give your PIP video a basic glow - with controls for glow type, amount, contrast and opacity
- Rescale the glow effect to enhance the glow effect
- Add a tint to the PIP video - controls for tint colour and tint blend modes
- Add a border to your image (note the border does not work with cropping - one or the other)
- And a drop shadow control has been added free of charge this time for your enjoyment.
- Keep stacking the layers up to control as many PIP layers that you may need.
Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
