Hi All,

Brand new to the forum and to FCP. I was wondering whether there is a plugin or a method of swooshing an image in. For example I want to stamp the video with a logo but instead of it just appearing I want to literally stamp it in by the image coming in from an angle or something?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance :)

You can keyframe position out-side the canvas and key-frame the size (and rotation) to create the effect of 'stamping in' your picture.

What's FCPX is missing, but Motion would offer, is motion blur.
Esp. a fast movement 'close to cam' as stamping, NEEDS motion blur!

That's a good idea, I did see a tutorial on something like that. Only thing in FCPX the image covers the whole screen, which is annoying. I just downloaded Motion 5 but it keeps on frickin crashing. I think I need to run updates.

Thanks for that.

To keep the example 'stamp':
apply in some graphic processor, or even in Preview, some transparencies; save as .png.

Or, you keyframe the opacity either ...

Followed your steps...Keyframing out to in, and it's exactly what I wanted, so easily done. :)

Thanks a lot dude.. Will now try motion blur on motion 5.
