04 Jan Pixel Film Studios Development Team Releases Art Wall for Final Cut Pro X
Pixel Film Studios Announced The Release of Art Wall, a 3D Frame Theme for Final Cut Pro X
Aliso Viejo, California (THE WIRE PRESS) – “Art Wall brings your photos and videos to life within a beautiful 3D environment which will provoke new and exciting ideas for your next video project,” said Christina Austin – CEO of Pixel Film Studios.
To start editing, choose a preset from the Generators browser to place in the FCPX timeline. The included presets feature two environment types and two frame types. Decide to use a landscape or portrait style frame and choose an environment type that includes pre-made camera movements or one that allows users to create their own by setting start and end points. Edit the colors, angle of the light and softness of the shadow to customize appearance.
Art Wall is packed full of customizable title elements like lower thirds, an opener, paragraph and listing tool. Each title element has a variety of uses. The opener is great for starting a video or introducing a new section. Lower thirds are perfect for displaying information about someone or something on-screen. The paragraph is for displaying full sentences of text and the listing tool allows users to display text through modular bullet points.
Move from one shot to the next by applying one of the framing transitions between the two shots. Choose between an upward or downward moving animation and adjust the length of the transition in the timeline. A longer transition will provide a smoother animation. Make further adjustments to the depth of field, height and colors in the inspector window.
In this plugin the background key is the wall environment without the frame and is perfect as a backdrop for text and other media. Users can still adjust the angle of the wall and choose a camera animation from a drop-down menu. Change the colors of the wall to mach any style and adjust the angle of the light to create realistic shots.
