Want to remove jump cuts from interviews or other footage?

Here is a tutorial on what I am calling "Optical Flow Transitions in FCPX" that lets you smooth over jump cuts and more using the incredible power of optical flow. Here is the teaser as well as the tutorial here:

Hey T,
Once again thanks for sharing. Learn some new stuff from your tutorials. Great :)
Mentioned you have a ContourPro set for color correcting. Any chance of getting copy of templet? Really like using the Contour, like seeing other's ideas.
Thanks, Greg

Greg,

Glad to hear it! Actually my Shuttle Pro set isn't for color grading, but just for general transport controls. The color grading one is from another fellow. See here: www.fcp.co/final-cut-pro/tutorials/1534-...r-correction-in-fcpx

I haven't delved in to try yet, but do you guys think there may be a way to replicate this as a Motion built Transition to streamline the process a bit? Would the transition be able to maintain referencing those two frames and the retiming when published to FCP X? I haven't thought through how it might work yet, just popped in my head and I thought I'd throw it out there.

As of right now Optical Flow analyzes media only, i.e an quicktime clip, and there is no way around it. So a motion transition won't work. However, as I mentioned in the video please put in a request to Apple to ask for them to implement this as an actual transition.

Fully agree with Tim. This can be programmed at Core level but not as a Motion transition. Now if everyone would stop nagging Apple about adding new features the team could concentrate on programming just this one ;)

Nice tutorial! Very clever. This is also the first time I've ever seen Keynote.

Also, you know how sometimes you get a song stuck in your head? Well guess what I have stuck in mine right now. That's right! "Today.... will be the day..." :)

The first time you've seen keynote? I'll be you have seen it many times in Apple "Keynote" presentations which coincidently use Keynote. ;)

I'm sure you're right, I just never thought of it. You said something in the video like "...go back to Keynote" and I was like Oh THAT'S what Keynote is! It's a Power Point thingy! But probably 10x better.

Keynote is very cool. All the animations in the tutorial video were done in Keynote with a thing called magic move. It just animates between slides automatically. It's very nice.

I want to thank you for this tutorial, it saved a few shots that had way too many UMs and AHs. No one can tell that there were jump cuts.
