Magnifying Glass effect 22 Aug 2014 11:29 #51626

Hello,
It's my first time posting on this forum, I've been a long time reader though.
For my first post I wanted to share this effect I built in motion and that I use a lot when I'm editing some corporate training.
There's probably a ton of magnifying glass effect already available out there, I didn't check to be honest.

Don't hesitate to give me feedback on the controls and the construction of the effect.

Hope someone will find it useful!

Cheers,

Theo

Nice work! I really dig the attention to detail.

How long have you been using Motion?
Raisins are the worst and I love making fcpx plugins !

About two years now.
It became my main compositing tool (still using AE for a few things)creating templates for FCPX is really handy.

I'm a big fan of your plugins by the way.

If you haven't installed Final Cut Pro X plugins before, use Andreas' Motion Template Tool.

It is free to use, but he would appreciate donations.

Here's an example of what the effect can do:


The 'Roundness' control is for when the magnifying glass is rectangular.

Unfortunately I have no website yet
Most of my work is for internal use only. The only things I did externally are a few promo videos or tutorials for customers.
I did most of the videos of this youtube channel.

It was a small project in my company (blizzard). The goal was to provide informative/promotional videos to customer in a funny (and a bit quirky) way while keeping the production under a week (most of the time).

I'm fairly new to professional editing. Always been one of my hobby but I never thought it could became my job.

*Edit: thanks Alex about those details. I'm such a newbie that I didn't even think about describing the effect :-)

Hi

I realise you posted this a couple of years ago, but I just wanted to say thanks - this is exactly what I've been looking for, for a short promotion piece, and I've been struggling with time constraints to make my own effect. Perfect for what I need, and nicely done. Thanks again!
