Welcome to an FCPX toolbox lesson from Pixel Film Studios.
The FCPX toolbox provides Final Cut Pro X users with essential effects and devices that all serious editors can use to finish and polish their projects.
From masking tools to stage lights, the FCPX toolbox can quickly and easily create looks that would otherwise not be possible in Final Cut Pro X.
In this lesson, we will cover the Picture-In-Picture tool.
This tool can be used to show multiple camera angles or multiple programs simultaneously.
Let's begin by selecting two clips or images in the FCPX media library.
Drag them to the timeline.
Place the one you want inside the Picture-In-Picture frame on top of the other.
Make them the same length.
Go to the FCPX effects library to locate the Picture-In-Picture Tool.
Then apply the tool to the top clip in the timeline.
For this example, we will use the frame preset.
Now it’s time to position and scale our Picture-In-Picture frame.
Select the clip in the timeline.
Use the outer circle on-screen control in the Viewer Window to adjust the size of the image.
Then, grab the center on-screen control puck and drag the clip to its desired location.
Now for some Final Touches.
Use the rotation controls to pitch or skew your screen in 3D space.
Then use the Frame Settings to adjust the roundness, size and color of the frame.
