1. Intro: - Hey , what's up? My name is Brian Garcia, and I edit my videos primarily on fund a Cup 0 10 but I always need to add some motion graphics and get a little more creative with my transitions, sometimes all by plug ins. But then that costs are sat up. So I started creating my own transitions, and now I get to make them the way I want to. In these next few videos, you should be able to make your own transitions without having to learn all the other boring stuff in motion. Five. Or there's just other stuff that you don't really need it for. You don't necessarily need to be an intermediate or expert user with motion. Five. Because this is just for people who want to learn specifically transition. What you do need to know is how to navigate around fun of pro 10. If you want to learn the basics of final cut pro 10 I highly recommend you check out my final cut pro tutorial took on my profile and check out my previous tutorials. Now let's start creating our own fun a cup o transitions 2. Crop slide Transition: the first thing I'll show you is headed creates to boast like transition by cropping out one of the shots. This way, you'll get understanding how to career transitions in motion. Five. So go ahead and close. Final cut pro. Let's go ahead and open motion. Five. If the project browser does not open and instead you're seeing this one toe layout, click the Red X. Put it on the top left of the window and, like file new from Project browser in the project browser. Select Final Cut Transition in presets. Select broadcast HD 10 80 frame rate. Set it at 24 frames per second in the drop down menu on the duration. You want to set it at six seconds. Timecode is selected in the drop down and select open. Here's the play head. In the timeline. You can move it around where you'll see transition A to B. Change your view from 100% to fit so you could see the whole thing in your screen. In the timeline, drag out transition eight to the end and drag out transition. Be to the beginning. Click on Transition A. In the timeline, click on the Inspector good properties, Select crop and click show in the timeline, Move the play head in the beginning. Click the key frame next to the left crop. You'll notice key frames were added. Here in the timeline, move the play head towards the end. Then you go ahead and move the left crop by clicking and dragging the numbers up until the entire scream is cropped off. It looks pretty crept off right there. So when that's done, I can either hit space bar or play so I can view the transition so it looks pretty good. I can always change the speed and final cut pro and make some adjustments there, so we'll go ahead and stop this and save it. Now let's click file Save in the dialog box. Give it a template name. I'll call it Crop Slide in the category. Drop down menu. Click on new category. I already have a category that says Garcia transitions so you can go ahead and click create I'll click cancel so I can show you mine. So go ahead and show you mine. Under the category. Drop down menu. You should be able to see yours so it can have your last name of your first name or whatever name. You give it a go ahead and click publish. So right now is sending it over to fund a cup pro. Keep in mind that if you already have fun a cup 0 10 open why you are making this transition? It won't show your new transition, so you'll have to close Final Kaprow and then reopening. I'm going to fast forward through all this so we can get straight to the transition. Once you have final Cut Pro 10 Open and you have a project open click on the transitions but in and you can go ahead and click on your category. I have Garcia transitions right over here. Go ahead and insert one of your clips, and then when you get a chance, drag and drop your transition in between the two clips in the timeline. Before I do that, I want to get rid of this destructing audio, and they'll press Shift Z to fit the whole timeline in my screen. So here is my crop slide transition. Let's drag that over here. In between these two clips in the timeline. If you didn't give each clip enough overlap space at the end of each media, you're gonna have this dialog box pop up, so go ahead and click. Create transition. You can adjust the speed of this transition by grabbing the edges and dragging it around. You can also trim the close by dragging the top left or right edge of the transition. As long as you see the film role right below the mouse. Go in and click space bar or the play, but into view your video and you can make any more adjustments. If you think it's necessary. That's it for this video. Go ahead and play with their for a little bit and tried on some of your own videos. When you get a chance, feel free to go on my next video so you can learn some more transitions. 3. Smooth Zoom In: all right in this lesson. Up initially had it making zoom in transition in motion. Five. You will publish your zoom in transition in final Cut pro, Just like I have it over here. I'll go ahead and stop that and close final cut pro. Let's go ahead and open the motion app I went to get. If this window comes up, just close it and Goto file, then new from Project browser in the project browser Select Final Cut Transition Set precent to broadcast HD 10 80. Frame rate is 24 frames per second. Duration is six seconds and its on time code. Now let's click open Change your view from 100% to fit. Now let's drag Transition ate out a little bit, so it overlap of transition. Be with transition, a selected and the play it in the beginning of the 10 line, Go to inspector properties and select the key frame for scale at 100%. Now move The play hit at the end of transition A, and you're going to add another key frame by entering 1000. Here on the scale, we have a zoom in effect, but let's click here to the key from editor. I will move this window up a little bit so I could get a better view now created marquee over the right key frame, and you can either right click or if you don't have a right click on your males, take control. Click then goto interrelation and select Busy a direct this handlebar straight down so the animation will quickly zoom in here. Andy Opri another marquee over the left key frame so you can drag this bar out closer towards the right. It's not done yet, but let's go ahead and watch the transition you created by either pressing the space bar on your keyboard or press the play by. Let's Close Key Frame Editor and click on Transition be move the play head. In the beginning of transition, be and click the replicate bite. Now you go to Inspector and Replicator. Then you want to change columns to three and you don't want change. Rose to three. We're going to adjust the scale, so click the triangle next to it to expand the width and height. Now we're gonna make the with 7680 pixels and the height 4320 pixels just for convenience. I'm gonna hide transition A just temporarily, since I'm unable to see the changes I'm making in transition be you can diesel ect the check box right next to Transition A. But just remember to check this box again later. Now we're going to add a filter, but make sure you still have the Replicator selective. Go to filters, thin distortion and select mirror. You want to drag us to the left side and let it snap, so it's exactly horizontally and vertically in place. Let's at our second filter go to filters, distortion and select mirror. For this filter, we want to change the angle of 90 degrees. You can enter the numbers and hit enter. Let's drag us down and let a snap in place so it's centered. Once that snapped into place, we're gonna add our third filter, so go to filters than distortion and select mirror. Let's change the angle for this 1 to 180 degrees. Drag this clip to the right so it's horizontally centered and snaps into place. We're gonna add our fourth and last filter, so go to filters, distortion and mirror, and he'll change this angle to 270 degrees. Move this clip up so it snaps into place and it's centered vertically good of properties and go to scale, and you want skeletons down a little bit. So when it starts at transition, be the replicates are filling up the frame. I'll send my skill to 35% hit enter at a key frame and hopefully you key frame this right in the beginning of the Replicator clip. Let's move the play head towards the end. So we're gonna add a key frame there under scale. Change the scale size to 100%. So you should have a key frame at the end of this Replicator clip. Make sure the Replicator still selected and click on the key frame editor towards the right of the timeline. I'm just gonna scroll up a little bit so I can see my animation dragging marquee over the right key frame. And you're gonna either right click or control click one or the other and in select interpolation Busy A. I'm gonna just both of the handlebars so I can have a bit of a narc. So transition be will be able to easy to smoothly. You can review the footage by either pressing the play button or the space bar on your keyboard. I think that's good enough right there. So I'm gonna go ahead and stop it, and I'm going to hide the key frame editor. So I'm gonna hit this button over here, just like I said earlier. Don't forget to select transition A. So it's visible. Now I'm gonna hit the play button so I can review the transition A and B together. And I think this looks pretty good right here. The transition may come across slow because we have under six seconds for the duration. But don't forget when we put it to fund a cup pro, we can always show in the transition. I'm gonna go ahead and stop this because I'm dead reviewing this. We're gonna do one more step before we take a symphonic a pro. Now go to render and select motion blur. Click on the project layer in the properties you want to select Override fund A cup pro duration? No. If you go down to motion blur and samples, I want to bring this up a little bit, maybe up to 30 whenever you add effects in motion. Five. It may look a little bit glitchy when playing back the video. So to get a better playback, go to Mark Ramp review and select all I'll Go Ahead and fast for this, but you can go ahead and posit video if you need to. Now we can review the transition. So go ahead and hit space bar on the keyboard or hit the play button here on the timeline. Once you're done reviewing it, go ahead and stop it. And now it's time to publish this to final cut pro Go to file. Save in the Little Dialog box will appear in the template name. I'm gonna call it Smooth Zoom in in category already have one for myself, but you can go ahead and select new category now already have one that says Garcia transitions, so you can go ahead and give one for yourself. Maybe your name and transitions when you're done, Click Create. I've been hit. Cancel. You can see in category that already happened for myself. That says Garcia transitions. So go ahead and select yours and click publish. I'm going to fast forward through all this while it's publishing, so go ahead and positive video if you need to. So if you have fun a cup 0 10 open this whole time while you're making this transition, I recommend that you close it because it will not show until you reopen final cut pro. So when you get a chance, go ahead and open final Cut pro. 10. Go ahead and pull up some of your own clips. I already have my own projects that I already finished. Also, don't forget to open up your transition window and you should see your smooth zoom in transition. I have the transition over here in the bottom, so I'm gonna go ahead and over my mouse over just to get a good look at it. And I want to click and drag this over into my timeline, and I'm going to hit the play button to review this. That's a pretty long transition, so I'm gonna go ahead and shorten this. I'm gonna grab the edge of this transition and bring the duration down a little bit. Make any necessary adjustments you find best fits your video. Here's an example of my transition, and when you're done, feel free to go into the next video 4. Smooth Zoom Out: Now we're going to try the smooth zoom out. But I'm gonna show you a few different ways to go around. Motions five to get similar results. Go ahead and open up motion. Five. Once again if this window pops up, want to go ahead and close it cause we're gonna make a new window. So go ahead and closes by hitting the Red x photo file and select new from project browser in the project Browser Dialog window. I'm going to select final cut transition. Preset is set to broadcast HD 10 80. Frame rate is 24 frames per second. Duration is six seconds. Make sure timecode is selected and click open. Once we got that selected, let's make sure we change the window to fit so we could view the whole thing, drag out transition, be a little bit. So overlaps a frame or two with transition A. Now make sure you have transition a selected and you're gonna click Replicate. Now, let's go to inspector Any want to change the columns to three and the rose to three. Before we adjust the size of the Replicator, we're gonna goto properties, and we're gonna add a key frame next to scale. You should have a key frame at the beginning of transition A. Now move the play head towards the end and you're gonna add a key frame at the end of transition A. Let's scale this down. I'll bring it down to 50 and I'll hit. Enter. You should be able to see your last key frame over here at the end of transition A. Now we're going to change the size of the Replicator, and I'm initially a different way to do it. So go ahead and click on the Replicator tab and I'm gonna open the triangle for the size over in the canvas. You want to grab the corner of this box and drag it out? You can drag it out until the replicate are not touching each other. You can leave a little bit of space over here in between them, I think that's gonna But right there. So if you're dragging the outside of the canvas is going to get a better view. You can adjust your canvas size over here, and I'm gonna bring it down to 12%. I can get a better view over here and drag it out still a little bit more, but I think this is just about good. So I'm gonna go back to fit with the replicas still selected. I want to adjust the animation of the scale so I'll go to Key Frame editor and I'm gonna dragging marquee over the first key frame. Goto interpellation and busier. I'm going to drag this window up a little bit so I can get a better view of my key frame editor. Let's grab this handle and bring it up so we can have a little bit of a narc when you haven't argo above the first key frame. This will move opposite from the direction we want to zoom, so this will first push in and slowly push back out Draghi marquee over the next key frame , then moved the handle up so you can zoom out real quick. Now we can review this animation, so move the play head to the beginning and you can hit the space bar on your keyboard or hit the play button so you'll see it push in and push back out. And that's almost how I want my animation to look like. I'm gonna go ahead and stop it. I'm gonna grab the handle bars. I could make a little bit more adjustments to this so can zoom out a little bit quicker. Now go ahead and check this out again. I'll bring the plate to the beginning and hit the play button so this will slowly push in and push back out. And you noticed they moved a little bit quicker on the zoom out. So for now, we'll go ahead and hide the key frame editor so we can move on to the next step. Bring the play it to the beginning, and we're gonna add the emir effects. So go to filters, distortion and mirror. We'll keep this as Joe degrees, so let's drag this towards the left and let's snap into place so it's centered and you want the edge to still be touching the frame. Now we're gonna add another mirror, so go to filters, distortion and mirror. We're going to change the angle to 90 degrees. Drag this down so it snaps into place and its center. We want the edges to still be touching. We're gonna add another filter, so go to filters, distortion and mirror. Go ahead and change the angle to 180 degrees, and we're gonna move this for his on to lean towards the right. Let it snap into place. So it's even between the vertical and horizontal axis one last time. Go to filters, distortion and mirror. We're gonna change the angle to 270 degrees. Let's move this up so it snaps into place. Move the mouse at the edge of the Replicator layers so we can trim the Replicator and the mirror effects evenly with transition, a click and drag until it's even with transition aid. So that's true. Pretty good right there. So I'm gonna go ahead and select transition be and I want to move the play head right at the beginning of that transition. Let's hide the Replicator layer for now, so it's out of the way. But just like the last video. And don't forget to turn this back on so it's visible again with transition. Be still selected. Click on properties, and we're going to bring the scale up when moving this letter. It only lets you move this up to 400% so I'll click here and enter 600 go ahead and add a key frame right there. And let's move the play head towards the end so we can add another key frame. I will change the scale back to 100%. So isn't at a second key frame. Now let's go to Key Frame editor Draghi Marquee over the first key frame. Right, click or control click and go to interpolation and select. Busy with this animation you don't want to push out. Then they push in like the last transition, so we'll move the handlebar down. Hold the shift key so it goes down vertically. Do not pass the second key frame so it doesn't have any pushing back and forth. No dragon marquee over the right key frame grabbed the handle. Move horizontally towards right. Hold the shift key and do not go past this next key frame. This should avoid any pushing back and forth. Go ahead and make any adjustments you find necessary. I'm going to play this and watch how they're smoothly zooms out. I'm going to stop this now and just like I said earlier, don't forget to select the Replicator so it's visible again. Go to render and select motion blur. I'm just gonna hide my key frame editor just for my convenience. I'm gonna put the play head back in the beginning. Now, let's render the video so good. A Mark Ram preview and all that should allow you to get better playback. So you can either hit space bar or the plate, but in to review your transition, I think that's pretty good. So I'm gonna go ahead and stop this. So let's go ahead and click on Project under the Inspector and Properties Tab. Select override Final cut, Pro duration and under motion blur. Jesus. Samples to 30. Now we're ready to send this to Phonic. A pro 10. So good of file. Save in template name. I'm gonna call it smooth. Zoom out. You can look at one of my previous tutorials How to add a new category. Go ahead and select your category in the job down menu and select Publish. So once that's done. And go ahead and open up. Final cut pro. I'm going to fast forward through all this. You can go a composite video if you need to catch up. My transition should be over here with this category. Garcia transitions I'll go ahead and select this and drag it in between these two clips. Go ahead and test it out with your own cliffs. Remember, you can adjust the duration. You don't want these transitions dragging out too long. I'll wait for this to render, but I want to show you why we added this mirror. If it this creates a reflection and it should be somewhat unnoticeable to an average viewer , as assumes out. Now I'll review the video and hit play. This looks pretty good, but the busy animation I didn't may need a little bit more work you can see here on mind. The pushin is a little bit too abrupt. This is a good time for me to show you how to take this back to motion. If you don't like the way your transition came out, here's how you can go back and make some changes right. Click or control, click on your transition and select open emotion. This just send you back to motion and you should be able to make any changes you find necessary when that's common, is that I always need to go back to the key frame editor and adjust those handles. If I extend this out a little bit more, it should make the push in just a little bit more smooth. Now I'll go back to fund a GoPro and I'll select this transition. Delete it. Dragon dropped a transition again at just the duration, so it's a little bit quicker. Once that's done over here, I'm gonna bring the player to the beginning, play it so I can review the footage and I could see the difference. Right now. That's about it. For this video, you should be getting comfortable with transitions. Now let's move on to the next video. 5. Rotate Clockwise: in this video, I'll show you how to make a rotating transition. Here's my sample and let's get right into it. Go ahead and open up motion five and go to file new from Project browser. Click on Final Cut Transition, and I'm going to stick to these default settings so I'll go ahead and open. Let's change the canvas size to fit. Trim the end of transition A. So there's no overlap between book transitions. Make sure you don't go too far. We don't want to see a gap in between both clips. All right, let's move the play head to the beginning and make sure you have transition a selected and click replicate. Go to the inspector tab and under replicate, make sure columns is set to three and roses it to three. We wanted temporarily bring the scale down, so go to properties and bring the skill down just enough so you can see the edges. Grab the corner of the Replicator box and drug a cell until the replicate images are not touching. I'll just show you where you can see the replicate size. If you go to Replicator than expand the size triangle, you'll see the dimensions you made? No, that we had just the Replicator. We could go back to properties and under scale. Let's bring the size back to 100%. Now we're gonna add the mirror effects. So let's go to filters, distortion and mirror. Go ahead and Drager from the middle, moving towards the left so it snaps into place. Let's add another filter. So let's go to filters. Distortion mirror. Make this 90 degrees and dragged from the middle. Move it down until it snaps into place and again you're gonna go to filters. Distortion Mirror. This will be 180 degrees. Drag this one towards the right until it snaps into place one last time. Voted Filters distortion mirror. This will be 270 degrees. Go ahead and drag this up until it snaps into place. Click and drag the edge of the Replicators so this is aligned with the end of transition. A. Make sure that play head is on the first frame in the properties at a key frame in rotation at zero degrees. Move the play head towards the end of transition A, and we're gonna add another key frame by sitting this at minus 180 degrees, you should have a rotating clip with Transition. A will go to the key frame editor to make this transition smooth. I'll drive this display up so I could get a better view of my work Dragon marquee over the first key frame. Right click or control. Click that key frame and go to interpellation and select Busier. Move the first handle towards the right, then dragging marquee over the next key frame. Move this handle so we can have an art. They should create a smooth transition. We want this animation to start off slow and pick up speed towards the end. You can see how quickly it moves at the end of the ark. I'll make a few adjustments over here so the end can speed up a little bit quicker. This is good for now. I usually get a better idea how this will look when I run this transition and final cut pro . I'll go ahead and hide my key frame editor. We'll start working on transition. Be so go ahead and select that and move the play head right at the beginning of transition be, Let's click the replicate button. Change the columns to three and the rose to three good of properties, and you'll temporarily bring the scale down again so we could see the edges of what we move the Replicator box. Grab the corner of the Replicator box and drag it out until the edges air detached. Make sure you change the scale back to 100%. If you want to see the changes you made, you can click the Replicator tab that expand the triangle to display this size within height, and you could see the pixels here. Now go to filters, distortion and select mirror. Let's move this left so it snaps into place again. Go to filters, distortion and mirror. Change this in 90 degrees, and you want to bring this down until it snaps into place again. Let's go to filters, distortion and mirror change this to 180 degrees. Drag this towards the right until it snaps into place. When last time was go to filters, distortion and select Mir, this will be 270 degrees. Drag this up until it snaps into place. No, we want to start rotating transition be so go to the properties tab in rotation. Let's change this to 180 degrees at a key frame right there. It should display a key frame in your timeline. Moved the play head toward the end of transition be. Bring the rotation back to zero degrees. It should automatically at a second key frame. There. I want to open up the key frame editor so I could make some adjustments. It's not showing up over here because I need to have Replicators selected. So you also make sure that Replicators selected on your end. As I review my basic rotation, we wanted to begin quickly, so it's running a similar speed as the previous transition and slowly ended its place. I'll go ahead and stop that. Dragged a marquee over the first key frame, right, click or control, click on the key frame and go to interpellation and select Busy a track the handle down vertically. But don't go lower than the second key frame, dragging marquee over the next key frame. Moved the handles towards the left and don't let it pass the first key frame. I'll go ahead and review this to see if it's running a similar speed as Transition A. They should start off quick and slowly ease into the last key frame. I'll go ahead and hide key frame editor. We're almost dead. So now let's go. To render and select motion, select the projects Layer and Under Inspector on Properties Tab, Select Override F C P. Duration and under motion Blur. Change the samples down to five. Now we're gonna publish this, so let's go to file and click. Save in the template name, I'll call it. Rotate clockwise. If you want to learn how to create a new category, feel free to check out my previous videos. Go ahead and select your category. I have Garcia transitions and select Publish. Once that's done, we can open up final cut pro, so you should grab any of your clips to test this out. But I'll show you how it looks like on my end in the transitions under the category Garcia transitions. I have rotate clockwise. I'll drag that over here. In between these two clips, I'll trim this a little bit shorter so it could be quick as I review this. I've never done the first time I publish this Stefanik, a pro I always need to go back and make some adjustments. So the animation is a bit more smoother, so don't feel bad. If you feel like you're animation isn't perfect. You can always go back right now. You can just watch my editing workflow so you don't have to follow along step by step. Since my motion app is still open, I can hold the command and press tab and select the motion at. Or, if you close the motion app from phonic, a pro you can control, click or right, click the transition and select open in motion. I want to make sure the frame editor is visible and I want to select. Replicate one layer. So if you need to go back to your motion. Five. Feel free to do so and make some adjustments. You can see what I'm doing over here. I'm going to bring this hand to straight down so the animation starts off quicker in transition be and it has a smoother ease into the last key frame in the last key frame. I should bring the hand a little bit more towards the left. We can go and review this and see the difference. It quickly starts and ends slowly. I'm going to use a keyboard shortcut to say this. That's command s. And then I'll hold command, Then press tab to switch to Phonic. A pro. I need to remove this transition and reinserted. All right, let me check this out. I don't know if you see the difference, just like I do, but it does pay off to pay attention to detail. Try to nail yours down the way you like it. Once you feel like you got your transition down pretty good. Keep using it with any of your other clips. I'm satisfied with my transition. I think by now you should be getting more comfortable. How to make transitions in motion. That's it for this video. Go ahead and watch the next video to learn how to make more transitions in motion. Five 6. Rotate Counterclockwise: we're now going to turn this transition counterclockwise. If you completed the last video, this should be pretty simple. Open up motion. Five. Go ahead and close this window. Go to file and new from Project browser Under Project Browser. I've been to select Final Cut transition. I'll leave the preset and frame rate at its to fall. I'm gonna change the duration to one second because I want to be fast and quick. Click open. Now let's change the canvas size so can fit as long as you have transition a selected Go ahead and click the replicate, but go to the Inspector and Replicator tab and under columns and rows, you're gonna change them both to three. Go to the Properties tab, bring the scale down, select the Replicator box and drag it out until the replicates are not touching. Once you have it, spread out pretty good. Go ahead and bring the scale back to 100%. Now go to filters, distortion and select mirror. Drag this to the left until it snaps into place. If the white access is not senator, go ahead and enter zero. Now let's add another one. Go to filters, distortion and select mirror. Change the angle to this 1 to 90 degrees. Drag this one down until it snaps into place. Always make sure this is centered. Go to filters, distortion and select mirror. Now you're gonna change the angle to 180 degrees. Drag this to the right until snaps into place. Make sure the white coordinates are centered. I'll enter zero over here on the Y axis. Go to filters, distortion and select Mir. Change the angle to 270 degrees. Drag this up until it snaps into place. Now let's trim the Replicator down, so it's half the transition. Make sure the play head is at the beginning of the timeline, and you have replicators selected and under rotation at a key frame. Move the play head towards the end of transition, a in rotation type, 180 degrees, and this should add a key frame. Now you can check out this rotation. It should be counterclockwise. All right, I'm gonna click this triangle just as safe from space over here and L d. Selected so I can hide it for a little bit. So let's start working on transition. Be so go ahead and select it. Click the replicate button in the Inspector and Replicator tab. Change the columns to three and the rose to three. Click on the Properties tab and bring the scale down. Grab the corner of the Replicator box and drag that out until all the replicates are not attached. All right, they're spaced out pretty good. Go to scale and change that back to 100%. Now, let's go to filters, distortion and select mirror again. Drug this towards the left and let it snap into place. Make sure the white access is centered. Photo filters, distortion and select mirror. Make this 90 degrees and you're gonna bring this down until it snaps to place. Just make sure the X excess on this one is centered. Let's go back to filters. Go to distortions and select Mir. Change the angle to 180 degrees. Drag this one to the right until it snaps into place. All right, one last time. Go to filters, distortion and select mirror. Change the angle to 270 degrees. Drag this up until it snaps into place. Now go to the properties tab because you're gonna add a key frame under rotation. Make sure you move the play head towards the end at a key frame in rotation. Bring the play head to the beginning of transition. Be change the rotation. Tu minus 180 degrees. I'll go ahead and review this to make sure it's rotating counter clockwise. All right, so like the first Replicator to make sure is visible, and I can see they're both rotating counter clockwise. Now. Go ahead and select the first Replicator so we could make some changes in key frame editor . I'll collapse any of the open triangles, so the effect layers are out of my way. Select Key Frame editor. I'll bring this up so I can get a better view. Jackie Marquee over the last key frame, either right click or control. Click the key frame and go to interpellation. Busier, drag the handle down without letting it pass. The first key frame. Draghi marquee over the first key frame, Moved the handle horizontally towards the right and don't let it pass the last key frame. So if I go back in a review transition A. I'll see that it slowly picks up speed and as that smooth animation. Now move the plate towards the centre because I'm about to work on transition. Be select the next Replicator. If you to make any name changes, it should just say Replicator one. I'll bring this display back up now. Jack Markey over the first key frame. Right, click or control. Click and go to interpellation and select Busy. Move this handle up so we can have a little bit of a narc Draghi marquee over the last key frame and moving horizontally towards the left. But don't let it pass the first key frame that looks pretty good right there. I'll go ahead and review it. This starts off with the same speed as a previous transition, and then it slows down. You kind of want these transitions to be quick and unnoticeable. I'll hide the key frame editor, you'll see as I trim the Replicators. I also move the key frame for this. I don't want any overlapping, so I was I review this. I think this is pretty good. Let's ask the motion blur to this. So go to render and select motion blur. Select the project layer in the Inspector and Properties Tab select override F C P duration and under motion blur. Bring the samples up to 30. I'll bring the plan back to the beginning and review this one last time. You'll see all the effects in motion. Blur is already making this little bit slow. You can look at one of my previous videos. If you want to learn how to ram preview and you can have a better playback speed, it's time to publish this to final Cut Pro So Goto file Save. I'll name this. Rotate counterclockwise. You can look at one of my previous videos. If you want to learn how to add a new category, go to category and select your category. I'm going to go see a transitions and click publish once it's done, and go ahead and open up. Final Cut Pro. Your new transition should be in your category. I have it over here on Garcia transitions. Once final cut pro is open. Go in and grab any two clips and put it in your timeline. Click and drag to rotate counterclockwise transition and put it in between two clips. I'll just wait till this finishes. Rendering. That transition is good enough. We could move on to the next lesson. That's it for There's a video. Now I'll show you my favorite swiping transitions. 7. Swipe Up: Here's a lot of my simple and probably my favorite transition that I use most of the time. It's a simple swipe up, which is better than happened. Makes it cuts in between shots. Let's get right into it. So open motion. Goto file New from Project browser Select Final Cut Transition. I'll keep the default settings. Go ahead and click open. Change the campus size to fit. Make sure you still have transition. A selected and click replicate. Go to the inspector so we can change the columns and rows. Set both of them to three. Now go to the Properties tab under scale. We're gonna bring that down all being mind to 50% now drag the corner box of the Replicator . We just want to make sure all the replicates or not touching again once you got the Replicators spread out pretty good to go ahead and change the scale size back to 100%. We're gonna add the mirror filters again, just like the previous videos. So let's go to filters, distortion and select mirror. Change the angle to 90 degrees. Go ahead and drag us down until it snaps into place. The X axis is not exactly center. So sometimes I need to enter the number over here, trim the Replicator. So the duration is the same as Transition E. How did the Replicator for now, by de selecting the box next to it, move the play head to the beginning of transition Be and select it now that transition be selected to click the replicate. But again, under the Inspector Replicator tab, you gonna change the columns and rows to three good of properties and bring the scale down , drag out the corner of the Replicator box and make sure the replicates are detached. That's good enough right there. So I'll bring the skill back to 100%. Now we're gonna add one last mirror filter. So let's go to filters, distortion and mirror. Change the angle to 270 degrees. Direct this one up until snaps into place. Now, you want to make sure the first Replicator is visible, so go ahead and select the check box next to it. And make sure you select a layer because we're gonna ask him key frames. Bring the play head to the beginning in the Inspector tab and Properties tab under position , you're gonna select the key frame, move the play head at the end of transition A. Bring the white coordinates up. I'm gonna remind to 1700 I'll go ahead and review transition A. And I could see it sliding up after you're done reviewing yours. Select the next Replicator because we'll be adding key frames to transition. Be move the play it towards the end and select the key frame for position. Now bring the player to the beginning of transition be. Let's change the white access to minus 1700 pixels and you'll see both key frames are set. I'll review both transitions. Don't worry too much about the gap. In between. Both transitions will be adjusting the speed and key frame editor. Let's drag out both Replicators, just a couple of frames, so there's a little bit of an overlap that should be good enough right there. You'll still see a little bit of a gap until we get into key frame editor. Go ahead and select key frame editor. Make sure the Replicators still selected and add a marquee over the first key frame. Drag this handle vertically down. I need a better view so I'm gonna bring my display up. Make sure that handles not passing the other key. Frame Draghi marquee over the first key frame. Grab the handle and bring it horizontally towards the right. And don't let this past the other key frame. I'll going to make a few more adjustments to this. That should be good enough right there so that animation will start slow. Then it's been speed up. That's good. So let's go ahead and select the next Replicator again. Jackie Marquee over the last key frame. Drag the handle towards the left. Just make sure it doesn't pass the left key frame jag another marquee over the left key frame and bring the handles up. Don't let this pass the right key frame. No, if you review the movement on both clips, you'll see they are running at similar speeds. Let's hide key frame editor and drag out the clubs just a little bit until the gap is barely covered. You also need to drag out the key friends with it, too. So if I review this, the transition should be happening very smooth and unnoticeable. I feel my transition aides cutting up too much of transition be. So I'm just gonna cut it. Just a frame right here. So I think this is looking pretty good over here. Let's check it out. All right. I think this is pretty simple over here, so I'm gonna go ahead and stop this. Go to render and select motion Blur. So let the project layer. And under Inspector and Properties tab, make sure you select override FTP duration under motion. Blur. Change the samples to 30. Let's publish this. So use a keyboard shortcut. Command save under template name. I'm going to call this wipe up. You can look at one of my previous videos if you want to learn how to add a new category also like Garcia transitions and click publish. All speed this up so we could move on ahead. Once this is done, publishing go ahead and open up. Final cut pro. Once this is open, insert any of your two clips into the project timeline. Your transition should show up under your category. I still have my category. Garcia transitions. Find the swipe up transition, drag and drop it into your timeline and put it in between two of the clips I'll show in the duration of this transition because I always wanted to be quick. It's also good to leave it alone so you can let it finish rendering. So the play that can be smooth now let's check out this transition. It needs to be quick and short, so I'm going to bring the duration down a little bit more. Every time I make adjustments. I need to let it render again. I think that's perfect. I don't need to go back into motion and make any more adjustments. That's it for this video, so let's go on to the next one. 8. Swipe Right: in this lesson. I'll show you had a swipe right. Here's my sample. Now let's open up motion five in motion. Make sure you goto file new from Project browser Select Final Cut transition. I'll keep the rest of the settings that is to fall except the duration. Is that one second? Because I want this to be quick Click open Now that we have it open was change the view to fit. Make sure you have transition a selected and the play it is still in the beginning of the timeline. Now click replicating. Go to the Inspector tab and the Replicator tab changed the columns to three and the rose to three. Now you're gonna click on the properties tab, bring the scale down, adjust the replicator box so the replicates are not touching. When that's done, bring the scale back 200%. We're gonna add a filter again. So go to filters, distortion and select mirror. We'll keep the angle at zero degrees. So moving towards the left until it snaps into place, make sure the white access is at zero. I'll go ahead and enter it here. Trim the end of the Replicator effects and bring it down till end that transition. A. Open up the disclosure triangle for position at a key frame next to the X coordinate on Lee . Now move the plate towards the end of transition. A. In the cannabis drank the Replicator to the right. You want to move it until one of the replicates fills up the frame. That's good right about there. I'm gonna bring the Y axis back down a zero. I'll trim the end of the Replicator to the end of the key frame. Also, I don't want any overlap with transition. Be. I'll go ahead and review the animation. Cool. Now let's select transition. Be de Select the first Replicator two Haider for now and move the blade head at the beginning of transition be click the replicate button, go to the Inspector and Replicator tab and change the columns and rows to three. Go to the Properties tab and bring the scale down. No, grab the corner of the Replicator box and drag it out until the replicates air, not touching once they're spread out. Pretty good to go ahead and bring the scale back to 100%. Let's add another filter so go to filters, distortion and select mirror. They'll change the angle to 180 degrees and moved this one towards the right until it snaps into place. I want to make sure I have this Replicator selected so I can start adding some key frames under the properties tab. Make sure you still have the position. Try and go expand it so you can add a key frame to the X axis. Onley, Move the play head towards the end and at a key frame to the X axis. Move the play head towards the beginning of transition. Be drag it towards the left until the replica is filling up the frame. That's good right there. And the Y axis is still showing. Zero. I'll go ahead and check it out. Make the first Replicator visible and select it. Open up! Key frame Editor Jackie Marquee over the right key frame and you're gonna bring the handles down. Don't let it pass the first key frame, Jackie, marquee over the first key frame and bring the handle Sturza. Right. Don't let it pass the next key frame. If you want to make sure that handles didn't cross each other. Go ahead and add a marquee over both key frames. That looks good right there. Saw Hit the space bar to review my animation. Let's move on to the next Replicator. I'll go ahead and select it Jackie Marquee over the last key frame and bringing towards the left. I'm holding on to shift as I drag so states straight Jaggi marquee over the first key frame and bring the handle up. You can drag the marquee over both key frames. If you want to make sure that handles didn't cross each other, I'll hit Space bar so I can review the animation. So far. That's almost how I want it. Also like the first Replicator. Because I want to make some adjustments on mine. I'll bring this hand a little bit more towards the right. All right, cool. Let me check us out one more time. I like the way it's animated now. Good. Orender and select motion Blur. Select the project layer under the Inspector and Properties tab. Make sure override F C P duration is selected under motion. Blur. Bring the samples up. I actually want more motion blur for this one, so I'm gonna bring the handles up. Maybe a little bit past 100. I want a lot of motion blur for this one, so the transition is unnoticeable. Let's publish this to final Cut Pro now, So Goto file and click Save in the template name. I'm gonna call this swipe right. If you already watch one of my earlier videos, you should already know how to create a new category. All select Garcia transitions. Once it's done publishing, Go ahead and open up. Final Kaprow. My program takes a long time to open, so I'm just gonna go ahead of fast forward through all this, drag any of your two clips and bring it in your timeline. Then go to your transitions and bring in the swipe right transition in between your two clips. I'll bring the play head to the beginning of the timeline, and I'll wait till it's done, rendering. I'll hit Space Bar to play it. I think that's good. I don't need to go back to motion to make any more adjustments. That's it for this lesson. I'm sure you already made a lot of good transitions for yourself. Now let's move on to the next video 9. Swipe Down: All right. Now we're going to swipe down, check out this sample and let's get started. Open up Motion five and Goto file New from project browser. Some like Final Cut transition. I'll keep the rest of the presets the same, but I want the duration of one second click open. Change the canvas size to fit makes your transition a selected and click the replicate. But go to the inspector tab and the Replicator tab. Change the columns or rows. 23 Go to the Properties tab, bring the scale size down and go to the Replicator box. Jack the corner edge until the replicates or not touching. Once they're spread out pretty good. Go ahead and change the scale size back to 100%. Now go to filters, distortion and select Mir. Change the angle to 270 degrees. Direct this one up and let it snap into place. Ensure that the X axis is set to zero. I'll go to enter it here. Trim the edge of the Replicator until it matches the same as transition A. Expand the disclosure triangle for position at a key frame to the white access only move the plate towards the end of transition. A. But right now, you don't want to be at the very edge because you still want to see transition. A in the canvas dragged the white access down until one of the replicates fills up the frame. That's good. And just make sure that X excesses as zero. Now it's from the Replicator layers, so the key frame goes to the very end. All right, I'm gonna go ahead and review this animation hit space bar to play. I'll collapse the disclosure. Try and go for the first Replicator. Just to make things a little bit more clean, make sure it's selected. Go to key Frame editor Jackie Marquee over the first key frame. Bring the handles turns right. Don't let it pass the next key. Frame Jackie Marquee over the last key frame and bring the handles up. Don't let it pass the first key frame. I'll go ahead and review this animation hits based part of play. That's a smooth transition. I'll close a key frame editor for now, and I will get back to it later. Select transition be moved. The play head towards the beginning of transition Be and select the replicate button in the Inspector and Replicator tab. Change the columns to three and the rose to three in the Properties tab. Bring the scale down, drag out the corner of the Replicator box so the replicates air not touching once they're spread out pretty good. Bring the scale size back 200% now go to filters, distortion and select mirror. Change the angle to 90 degrees. Drag it down until it snaps into place. All right, let's start adding key frames. So get the play hit and move it towards the end. Go to the Properties tab and select a key frame for the white access only. Bring the play head to the beginning of transition. Be drag this one up until the next replicate is filling up the frame. Make sure the X axis is still at zero. I'll scroll through with the play head just to get a good look at the animation. Now let's click the key frame editor. Make sure the Replicator layer for transition be selected Javy Marquee over the first key frame and bring the handles down. Don't let the handles pass the next key frame. Draghi Marquee over the last key frame. Bring the handle towards the left. Don't let this one pass the first key frame. I'll go ahead and review it. Press space, part of play. I like this transition. I'll go ahead and hide the key frame editor. Go to render and select motion Blur. Select a project layer in the Inspector and Properties tab. Make sure you select override F C P Duration under motion Blur. Bring the samples up. I want more blur so the transition is a little bit unnoticeable, so bring the samples a little bit past 100. Let's publish this to final Cut pro So Goto file and click. Save in Template name. I'm gonna call this wiped down. You'll go ahead and add this in your category. I'll add this and Garcia transitions and click publish. Once it's done publishing. Go ahead and open up Final Cut Pro. Since it takes me a while to open it up, just fast forward through all of this. Go ahead and insert two of your clips into your timeline. You should be able to see your swipe down transition in your category. I'll grab mine from Garcia transitions, dragged it in between your two clips. I'll bring the plan to the beginning and let it finish rendering. And when you're ready hit space bar to play, I like the way that turned out. So I'm not gonna go back into motion to make any more adjustments. That's it for this video. Now let's move on to the last video before we get into the challenge. 10. Swipe Left: here is the last transition you're going to swipe left. This is my sample. Hope you like it and let's finish this off. Open up, motion. Five. I'm gonna close this one still had the red X goto file and select New from Project browser Select Final Cut Transition. I'll keep the defaults the same, but I want the duration at one second and click open. Change the canvas size to fit. Make sure transition a still select it and click the replicate. But in go to the Inspector tab in the Replicator tab, change the columns and rows to three. Go to the Properties tab and bring the scale down Jack in the corner of the Replicator box until the replicates or not touching once you have it, spread out pretty good to spring the scale back 200%. Let's Ademir effect. So go to filters, distortion and select Mir. Change the angle to 180 degrees. Let's move this towards the right until it snaps into place. Make sure the white access has sent 20 I'll enter it over here. Trim the Replicator until it ends. With transition A. Now open the disclosure Triangle for position at a key frame for the X X is only move the play head towards the end of transition. A. You still want to see transition A in the cannabis, so don't go too far out. Dragged the clip towards the left until the replicate fills up the frame. Make sure the white access is set to zero. I'm going to review this or bring the play it in the beginning, and I'll hit Space Bar to play it. That's cool right there. Something to click the key frame editor. Jaggi marquee over the first key frame. Grab the handle and bring that out towards the right. Don't let it pass the next key frame. Jaggi marquee over the last key frame. Bring that up. Don't let it pass the first key frame. You should be getting used to this by now, so bring the play head to the beginning and review your transition. We'll make some adjustments of the first transition, so it's a little bit more smoother. All right, I like the way this is looking. I'll hide the key frame editor, so it's out of the way. Collapse the disclosure triangle for the Replicators so we could move on to the next transition, select transition, be bring the play head to the beginning of transition be and select the replicate. But under the Inspector Replicator tab changed the columns and rows. 23 go to the Properties tab. Bring the scale down. I need to hide the first Replicator by de selecting it so I can view my transition be dragged the corner edge of the Replicator box out until the replicates air not touching Once they're spread out Pretty good. Bring the scaled back to 100%. Now we're gonna add her last mirror effects to go to filters, distortion and select mirror. Drag this one out towards the left until it snaps into place. We'll start adding key frames. So bring the play it towards the end of the timeline, select the Properties tab and had a key frame to the X axis. Only bring the play head to the beginning of transition. Be moved the Replicator to the right and to the replicates, filling up the frame. I'll select the first Replicator to make it visible. Trim this Replicator down by one frame so there's no overlap between this one and the next Replicator and the key frames right at the end of the Replicator. I'll just review the animation real quick. That's looking good right there. We're going to smooth out the animations. Select the next Replicator and Clicky frame editor Jaggi marquee over the first key frame and bring the handle down. Don't let it pass the next key frame, dragging marquee over the next key frame and bring the handle towards the left. Don't let this one pass the first key frame. Let's hide the key from editor and let's review our transition. I like the way the animation is looking, so I'm gonna go ahead of me to play it to the middle. Cyclists are heading, said Motion Blur, Click Render and select motion Blur. Select the project layer and under the Inspector and Properties tab, go to the override F C P. Duration and select it under motion. Blur, bring the samples up. I wanted to go a little bit past 100. Now let's publish this to Goto file and select Save in the template name. I'm going to call this swipe left. Go ahead and put this in your category. I'm gonna put in Garcia transitions. Click publish once that's done, and go ahead and open up. Funnel Kaprow when you have final cut Pro Open and go ahead an insert two of your clips into your timeline in the transitions, go to your category and look first wipe left drug that in between your two clips, I'll move the play. It was the beginning, and I'll wait till it's done rendering hit space bar to play it. That's perfect. That's exactly how I wanted it to look. We're just about done, so let's go to the last video so I can give you your challenge. 11. Challenge & Conclusion: I hope you enjoy this class. Feel free to let me know if you're interested in learning more. I do have a final cut pro 10 class right here on school share, So check it out on my profile. Might challenge for you is to make any video with these transitions you learned and posted here in the project section. Do not hesitate to ask me any questions in the community section. In the meantime, I'll show you my timeline so you can see how I made that intro video. You'll be able to see that I spread out my transition so it's not showing after every clip . When they selected transition, I could see the name right here in the Inspector. Now we'll play the video showing you the timeline. I'll change the clip appearance over here is so you can see a little bit better right before I play this. Just want to say good luck with your transitions and your videos, and this is me saying goodbye theme way
