DuoTone

… there’s no DuoTone filter in FCPX?? Hard to believe.
Anyhow, now there is:





It does what it says - applies a DuoTone Filter, which is a bit different than just tinting the pic.
For those who are familiar with Photoshop etc, the published parameters are self-explanatory; if not, just try ;)

Set Contrast for a clean White, and set Pivot for a clean Black.



I added an Unsharp-Mask-filter, in case you like to accomplish that fancy über-sharp look, you actually see in so many ads, as for example for Gold-Rush (interesting for movie-makers: try to catch one of the BTS episodes, superb executed 'reality'-TV with an incredible effort, just to record big boys playing in the dirt :lol: )

Very Good, Karsten! You have filled a gap with this filter. It seems works very well, plus it will be very useful in a job that I am planning. I thought to using some extreme grading, but this will simplify a lot of things to me.
Complimenti ... Luigi

thanks, Luigi, for the flowers! :)

Just another 'translation' of generic advice I found on several Photoshop/Pixelmator/Affinity websites into 'Motion lingo' - and this one was literally done in minutes … many tools from the pic-processors find their equivalents in Motion.

Puzzled, that not more of such translations fill our depository of plugins … :huh:

Glad to be helpful with your future project!

Hello,
I'v a problem, example: 1 minute clip only the first 8 sec effect is applied.
Do you have a solution ?
Best regards,
Play Movie
