MICROCUT - automatic 1-5-frame cut for the lazy editor 20 May 2016 10:05 #76950

// dl, un-zip and double-click Installer //

on request of board member robinsaini....
www.fcp.co/fcp-forum/4-final-cut-pro-x-f...linking-effect#76949

No tutorial, no demo video, this is very simple to use:


iconmc.png



clip #1 is in timeline
drag clip#2 over it
apply plugin on clip#2
in the Inspector, select rate, every 1 frame to every 5 frames....

I'm not responsible for any epilepsy side-effects!! ;)

two versions, 29.97fps and 25fps....

NEW #2
... pulled the installer, too wacky, now 'manual mode':
dl, unzip , creates two folders, you have to drag manually into ~/Movies/Motion Templates/Effects
if no such folder avail, read Simon's advice:

obviously, my one-liner on top of each of my posts here is too short :lol:

• download the file, a .zip, it should appear in your Downloads folder
• double-click it => it 'un-zips' => you see a folder ks_MICROCUT
• in Finder, goto/open Movies, Motion Templates, Effects
• drag the folder ks_MICROCUT into it
• (re)launch FCPX, unde Effects you notice the new plugin

..... that simple....

an in-depth version of this advice can be found here, by MotionMaster Simon Ubsdell

What should you do if there is no Effects folder in the motion templates folder?

Hey Karen, I downloaded the file. But It looks like in the Media tab where there would usually be images to display the effect, isn't there. Is there anyway you could uploaded another file containing all the contents? Thank you1

If you reflect to the 'large.png' file in the package - this is 'there' but shows a transpaent empty frame.. When the plugin is installed, the 'small.png' shows the icon with red µ sign, and with a selected clip in a project, skimming over the icon shows the 'flicker' effect....

All fine, all intentional .. ;)

That's great, thank you! Yet I'm another one who's new to plug-ins and struggles with them.

Looked around bit but couldn't find a solution. In my case the effects show up nicely in FCPX but as hover over them I get this redbackground yellow exclamation mark picture. I know the scenario where I have to relocate my videos, but how do I "relocate" the effects.

Probably some easy stupid solution, so I hope someone can take the time and help me out!
