Apple Final Cut Pro X has a great collection of built-in generators you can use. Apple Motion has a large library of generators and gives you the ability to create custom generators. In this movie, author Jeff Greenberg walks you through how to find more generators in Motion and use them with blending modes in Final Cut Pro X.
- In the prior section we saw how Final Cut…has some great built in generators.…Well, for 50 bucks more, we get Motion…and Motion has just a trove of cool stuff.…There are other elements in the full video library here…that you can watch to learn more about Motion…but we're gonna just learn this much…to add some organic pieces here inside of Final Cut 10.…To do that, I'm gonna go ahead and launch Motion.…What I want here is to build a brand new Final Cut generator…You could play with the preset and the frame rate…it won't make a huge difference…but I tend to do most of my work at 1080…so I'm gonna turn it ahead here an adjust this…to 1080 and maybe leave it at 29:97,…it'll combine fine with anything else.…
I just felt that it was better…for it to be scaled up a little bit more.…I'm gonna choose Open,…now if I hit Save at this point,…it'll automatically save this inside of Final Cut 10.…I'm gonna click in my canvas area…and just hit a Shift + Z just like you would in Final Cut…this now has been zoomed to fit full screen.…
