Thought I would share my DIY fcpx keyboard. I just pulled they keys off, stickers over the letters and a can of red and white spray paint.

Well I think you’ve inspired me to learn motion! Lol, I just watched a video on it, and it doesn’t look too difficult. I only started using fcp only around 2 weeks ago, so I wan to gain a bit more experience before taking it on. Thank you!

Thanks. I’ve never used motion to be honest. I would like to find a solution within fcpx if possible. If I need to use another software, I’ll just resize the photo to 1920x1080 in photoshop.

Shawn replied to the topic 'Need a copy of FCPX compatible with High Sierra' in the forum. 2 months ago

Downgrading to High Sierra will not allow you to download the latest compatible version of fcpx. I am running High Sierra 10.13.6 and receive the attached message when I try to download the app from the App Store. Perhaps that is different if you previously purchased fcpx 10.4.4.

Shawn created a new topic ' Ken Burns effect presets' in the forum. 2 months ago

I'm working on a series of videos where the ken burns effect is used throughout. I created some zoom-in/out Transform effects and saved these as presets. Now I can just drop them on a clip, and done! This is faster and more consistant than using the ken burns tool built into fcpx.
This works well for clips that are 1920x1080p. However, this wont work on clips that I first need to resize.

On Premiere Pro, I first add a "Motion" effect to size the clip properly. Then I drop a similar "Transform" preset I created for the desired ken burns effect.

Is there a way to achieve this in fcpx? The best I find is to add a frame, if the clip needs to be made smaller. But this wont work in all instances...

For some reason, I am only able to apply the ken burns effect to the first clip on the below screenshots. When I select the second still image, I am unable to apply this effect. What would cause this? Thanks

Shawn replied to the topic 'Cross dissolve between clips on different layers/tracks' in the forum. 3 months ago

Thanks so much for your reply and screenshots for clarity. :) I've managed to move the clip above as you described. I'm struggling to understand what a "Storyline" is, and generally how the magnetic timeline works.

Shawn created a new topic ' Cross dissolve between clips on different layers/tracks' in the forum. 3 months ago

I'm new to FCPX 10.4.4 from PPro CS6. How am I supposed to add a cross dissolve between 2 clips if they are on different layers? As you can see on the attached screenshot, clip 2 (SECTORS-ALL) is on a higher level, because there is another clip below it.

In PPro, I would move clip 1 (SECTORS MAP) up a track and apply a cross dissolve between the 2 clips. This isn't possible with the magnetic timeline.

This seems so simple, but I can't find the answer anywhere! Any help?
