For graphic designers it might be a collection of color management tools and loupes. For Excel or Word users it’s likely to be a collection of templates. What do Final Cut Pro X users collect?
My Transition Collection
If you’ll allow a moment of true confessions, I’ll admit to having a few thousand more fonts than I need on my Mac. And probably a few dozen utilities that might get used once a year.
Since my love affair of Final Cut goes back to the last century I’ve managed to grow a few additional collections.
A video editor can never have too many transitions, right? That’s true even if 99-percent are seldom used.
If you’re an FCPX user the easiest way is to download FxFactory and sample the effects.
The Block Pop transitions are plug and play, and feature plenty of presets, but can also be customized to match your project.
Click on the Transitions button in FCPX, select Stupid Raisins Block Pop, select a preset, drag and drop onto FCPX’s timeline, and you’re good to go.
Block Pops custom controls give you more capability and customization options for direction, line color, timing, and motion.
Among the transitions, 23 are presets, 23 are custom, but included are over 700 animated presets.
Think of these block transitions as a minimalist Rubic’s Cube in video.
There’s an included training video with the help documents. If you customize you’ll definitely want to devote time to both documents and video.
