1. Introduction: Hey guys, digitally, that effect is what we call the Instagram hologram. Thanks. And I made it using Phoenicia protein in about five simple steps. If you did like it, periphery didn't vote in this course is a few free plugins, Chuck tin as well. So more than area, right? And it's quite a fairly short courses about anyways. 2. Preparing Clips: So the first thing we need to do is prepare our clips. So right now you can see I've got the two kips here and the two clips you need. Basically the clip of yourself basically swiping through in midair. And the second clip is a screen recording either from your tablet or your mobile. It doesn't really matter which one is. And it's basically just a screen recording of going through. I say Instagram. It could be anything you want really, but I just chose Instagram and just scrolling through and doing a screen recording of that. Now one thing to bear in mind when it comes to that is when you do scroll, make sure you leave a bit of a break between each scroll. So what I mean is give a scroll and wait till it stops scrolling, and then scroll again, weightless, stop scrolling, and then square root again. And keep doing that for about, for about four or five scrolls. And the reason I say that is because when it comes to the actual recording or when you come to actually match the two clips is better to have extra backup scrolls. I'll just patches tend to go with that, that root. Whereas when you actually do the scrolling of yourself in mid-air, that could be about three or four scrolls. The aim isn't to make this video too long when you go to actually make their final product is only going to be a couple of scroll. It's just demonstrating, hey, look, I've got a hologram. But yeah, it's just safer to have extra scrolls for the actual screen recording that you do. So get that done, and then put your screen recording into phenocopy pro. If you don't already know how to do any of that, I've got another course and skill share, which basically shows you how to do the basics in regards to Final Cut. Okay, so I've got my two screens, my two video clips here, sorry. And my screen recording is the screen on the right is a video clip on the right, sorry. And there is no audio to it, so that's fine. My clip on the left has some audio recorded, so I'm just gonna get that detached. Don't need any of that. And another reason for that is because we will be adding some sound effects to basically match certain movements happening in that clip. Okay, so now that we've got that detached, what we wanna do next is we just want to move the screen recording clip on top of the the other clip though, the one worries about yourself just scrolling through me there. Now, obviously, you can see that it is longer than the clip at the bottom. That is the matter. Again, as I mentioned, we just we have extra extra cooling of that green screen recording just to be on the safe side. Now, as you can see, we've got the screen recording click directly on top of the other clip. And what we want to do is we just want to reduce the opacity, the transparency of the screen recording claim. So what we'll do is we'll have that selected key, the highlighted. And then we just go over two versus opacity. And you can scroll down, we're gonna go down to 50%. You can scroll down. But these days when I know the exact percentage, I'm going to just change it on the number itself to select on their 50. Enter chopped up myosin, easy. And that's how we reduce the capacity, capacity opacity down or the screen recording clip. And the next thing we're going to do in the next clause is basically we are going to start changing the orientation. 3. Orientation: Welcome back. So in this class we will be going over how to do the orientation for the screen recording clip. So right now we want to go into the effects tab. And we're going to look for this particular plugin called 3D orientation. Now, I don't believe this plugin comes with Final Cut Pro ten. So I've got a free link to the download in the course. I think that is the course description or somewhere down there in one of the links down there. So feel free to download it. And with any effect anytime when you transition that you need to install, as you may know, you need to restart Final Cut Pro after you put it into the relevant folder. So then you can start using it. So just bear in mind after you put it into the relevant folder, the install instructions will either be below or I will have a course on a very, very short course on how to install these applications. These plugins, sorry, in another skill share costs, if not, all had the instructions below. So 3D orientation, we're gonna grab it and drop it onto the screen recording clip. And you can close the effects tab now. Okay? So what we can see is, and it will configuration box that's appeared here. And with 3D orientation, just a couple of examples of what you can do. The x access, you can rotate it around the y axis. It can rotate that as well. And the z axis, which is basically rotate there sideways. Go. Now what I'm going to do is I'm just going to make the image slightly smaller. And then I'm going to select the clip and change the y-axis. So that's the one that we are looking at. That's the one that we want to change it. So it looks like I'm looking at it. Click the Transform tool. So I can just grab it and move it down slightly. It's a case of just placing in the right place. Now, one of the things that you want to bear in mind actually, when you go to record yourself, just scrolling through mid-air is try and make sure that your hand is not going to fall forward or too far back. Rather that it's always scrolling in the same type of area. Because you don't want your hand to go through the hologram too much. It can go through it and our problem, but not too much and not too far back either. That is not even touching the hologram. So just something to bear in mind. So in this particular clip, I actually did do that error, but it's not too problematic because I didn't put my push my handout to fall. So I think I scrolled four times and the first two were about here and the next two further down. No problem. I've got to do is make sure that the orientation of the hologram is slightly angled. So even though my hand goes through the hologram, doesn't really matter as long as not going to fall into the hologram. So let's see how far it is. Finance is going to move the pin head, get a good estimation of it. So I think the first one is about the MK. It's there and that one. Okay. That's about okay. And the next one is a lot deeper as you can see here. So what I'm gonna do, I'm just going to make sure that That's the hologram clip. The screen recording clip is highlighted and then just pull it back just a bit more. And I know that it's going to be okay for the last two scrolls. Scroll movements or my hand, cause they are, they are a bit more deeper in. You go by frame by frame k. Okay, that's OK. Now the question is, is it too far for the first tooth scrolls that I did, k, right. And the first scroll is coming up. I think that's OK for that one. For the next. You see foremost. Go back a bit. I think it was okay for that wanted so for now, I'll stick with that. I think that's okay. And that is the orientation done. In the next class, we will be matching my hand movements to the actual scrolling of the hologram. 4. Match Hand with Scrolling: Hey guys, welcome back. In this class we are going to be matching my hand movements to the scrolling in the actual screen recording. So this part is bit tedious, but it shouldn't take too long because the clip itself isn't too long. So we are basically just trying to match four scrolls because I only scroll it four times. Subdue you haven't towns, you wanna scroll it, but I will recommend you don't do it too many times. K. So I got the phone in my hand by blablabla. Press the button to make the hologram appear. We are going to come on to that in a later class. Don't worry. And then my hands dots and we just check whereabouts. It begins is that the first one? I'm just going with the left and right arrows to go through the actual frames. Kinda doesn't slow. Moser is quite cool, is o gives me more control. K, finger goes around there. Some happy for, whoops. Wrong button. Finger starts to scroll around which point is about it's about there. So what I'm going to do now is just click on the M button to put a marker. I should realize bookmark clip. I want to keep the clip where I am going through my scrolls hydrated and then click on the button to put the mark on that clip. Now, it's a case of now just going through Delete marker on the screen recording glib now. Okay, so just going through the screen recording to see where I start scrolling there. So I've got the screen recording just the beginning, starting around here. I just need to see where the scrolling starts for that key. Okay, scrolling to really begun sims going to scroll back, go back a bit. Okay, so surround, surrounding MRI K. Forward a couple of frames. Okay, so I still stay. Great. So I'm just going to use the pin head, go to that point, click m. So hopefully that m, that Monica and this marker, if we wind up spring back to the beginning. Give it a big play. Computers loading bay slow, which is absolutely excellent. My smeared with a pin head to make sure it goes nicely. Just make sure my hand makes connection with air that point and going frame-by-frame. Now, one error at a time is the tedious part of doing all of this, but it's the part that I guess brings it all together. And I think if allows me to play it, I think I've got nailed here. And again, it's being slow with the playback. I think I've got it right. The first one grade, even though he didn't play it back the second time, but it's fine. Now, what I'm going to be looking for now is for my second scroll that I do emitter. So only do that around here. I would say it's around that point there. So again, make sure the pin head isn't the right place. And click on the kit below. Click em. So I've got my mock and half of that. And just going to check to see where I start scrolling on the screen recording. So I wait until I see the clip has stopped. The I wonder have I matched it perfectly? Now? Call me. I doubt it and I didn't. All right. Let's see where it starts. So I'm looking at the screen recording. I'm looking, I'm literally looking at the hologram right now just to see where it begins to start scrolling again. So I'm just gonna chip seaway stopped. So I swayed to disrupt around there. Okay. So it looks like this scrolling off the screen recording started taking place before my hand touched it. So I just want to make sure that where it stops scrolling, I'm going to cut it. And I'm going to then start again from where it did start scrolling. So why can I do that? It's only because, as I mentioned earlier, I think it was in the first clip. When you go to do the recording of the actual screen recording, make sure that after each scroll, you wait till it stops scrolling. Because at that point, you can use it to your advantage as we are about to do now, we can basically then just cut to that clip and starting again at the point where it starts scrolling and all if I wish to, because it's frozen at that point, I can just decide to elongate that frozen pot, just demonstrating that, oh, I wasn't scrolling at that point. So we're gonna do that right now. So I'm just going to see where it does start again. And I think it's thoughts. So I'm just gonna click on m. And what I'm going to do is I'm going to zoom in slowly. And I'm going to cut it here. And I'm just going to take one frame because I can now just gives me the flexibility. One frame, just one frame back away is frozen and cut. And when I'm willing to do is I'm just gonna put fat particular clip on a hold. So we elongates it. In other words, I'm making it longer upward to the point where my hand and eventually touches the hologram K. So my hand touches the hologram around here on this marker here. So I'm going to just cut the whole trim off the excess and then re-add MapKit. Sit back into place. And I play it. If it decides to play before due to with the pin head is coming down. So by the time I touch it, you should start swiping again. So that's the benefit of basically making sure that between each scroll, when you're doing the recording of your screen recording, give a bit of a break. Let it pause, let it come to a point where it stops scrolling, and then carry on the coding when it basically carry on recoding, carrying a scrolling off the youth author, it stops scrolling. All right, so I've got two of my hand scrolls, handwritten scrolls registered. So all you have to do now is make sure you match the movement of the scrolls to the remaining made a scroll is that you do between your two kips. And then we'll go on to the next clause, which is how to make the hologram appear from your phone, and then when it closes, it disappears back into your phone. See you then. 5. Hologram Open and Close: Hey guys, welcome back. So in this class, we are going to make the hologram come out of the phone. And then when we're done with it, we're going to tap some button and it will go back into the phone. You could actually keep the clip as it is, but obviously it's to have a hologram just appearing out of nowhere. It's, it's fine, but obviously it's a lot more cooler to have just come out of the foam, whoop blood that. So we're going to be doing that. So what we wanna do is we want to make a Marco essentially of when the animation starts and when it ends essentially. Okay, so I want the animation to begin around here. So not too long after I've tapped Tim. And I want to end around here. Again, just moving the pin head and then clicking m once again. So what we want to do is, okay, so we won't go into the endpoint of that animation. Click on the video clip. Make sure the transform is selected. And then we're just going to click on this little keyframe button here. Then we're going to drag it to the beginning point of the animation. And what we're going to do is we're going to make the actual scale of this screen recording. Small, note, very, very small, as in like, yet, probably around 17%. So you can make it smaller by going from here on scale wall, or you can just drag it from here, totally up to you. So I'm just gonna go down from here, scale o, probably around 15%. And then I'm going to click on the plus button there and drag it down to the mobile device. And from here, and then going to make the scale all go down to 0. So now, and then once I click on Done, and then bring it back, okay, so when we play it back, I tap the button bank if is nice and smooth, but it's a little slow for my liking. So what I'm gonna do is go into the actual selected clip, select the clip actually, and then right-click or two finger tap on trackpad going to show video animation. And so all you have to do animations can be seen here. And so that's this all sloshing tracking. And that's where our ending one is. All we wanna do is bring us closer to our ending one. And then click on X. Okay, so when we play it back, nice. So we just wanted to do the exact same thing but the reverse for when we are closing the hologram. So all we want to do is go towards the end of the clip. Will not run to the end of the clip, but towards the end, up until the point where we see ourselves tapping some button or some contraption or whatnot. Walmart happened gay. Nothing. And pretending, type something. So we want to do after we tap the button or tap something to update. So it's at this point, I'm going to do an M again after another bone place. Do an m here on the screen recording kit. And I'm going to close out around here. And for the rest of the clip, I am going to actually delete it, but I'm gonna do it after. So I'm just going to sew. So all we're doing now is the complete reverse. So for the starting of the animation, we will make sure that the eclipse is highlighted. Click on transform, and then click on the keyframe. And for the end clip makes your opinions on there. And what we want to do is then make the size, the scale of it small. Again, I'll go around to around 15. Sounds good to me. And then I will drag it to the phone. Cu and again, I'll make the remain of the scale down to 0. Co, hit done. Okay, so let's see how that turned out. Sweet, ripe. So all we need to do now is add the sound and we are done. See you in the next class. 6. Adding Sound Effects: Hey guys, welcome back. So about 95% of our clip is already done, or probably around 90%. And the remaining 10% is going to be some of the sound effects that we add. So this is one of the reasons why I detached the audio from my main clip just because I didn't want any other background sound to interfere with this. And it's just a short clip, which it's very focused is very, very short. And any sound clips that do take place, I wanted to be very, very pronounced. So one thing I'm going to quickly do first is just delete the remainder of my clip. So I've got a here, the top lip on only integer anything cause it's gonna disappear anyway. But after that, I'm just going to click on here and just delete the rest of that clip. Just, I'm a, I'm a bit of a a OCD type of person. Finish a perfectionist wherever you want to call it. Okay, so I'm not going in to anywhere fancy to try and get the sound effects. I'm just going into the standard sound effects that are already built into Final Cut protein. So the one that I want to grab first is the one we're on tapping on. Well, it looks like the model. It is a mobile. Actually. It is a it is a mobile and kick em there. So it may look quick pin head. And again, our favorite button M, To make a marker as to exactly where I'm tapping it. Now, I'm just going to go into the sound effects section. So just this little icon here, then click on sound effects. And I want to press a button that let's see how it sounds. Miserable options. I want to go for something like luxury. Yeah. Okay. I'll stick that one. Nice and short and grab it, pull it down. So has it aligned correctly? Looks about right. So I'm gonna check it, play it back again one more time. Let's make sure bring it back. Okay. That looks about right. Perfect. So that's the sound of when I press the button. Now I want a sound of when the actual hologram is appearing. So I'm gonna grab it, make the sound appear from around here. Click em. And I think I heard something here. Not that that rabbit. Because it, it, it kinda laws. Right? So. What I noticed about all the sound effects is it doesn't actually begin until a little later. So if you look at kipp there, all of that is blank. So I'm going to remove the blank section and then match that up to my marker. And even then, it's probably a bit like that. So if I'm still perfect, alright, first play from here, bank suite. Now, there's two more things that we need to do. I, I do want to add a sound to one. I'm pressing the button at the end. So I'm going to do that now actually. So my finger touches there. Actually, there's three things we need to do. To put the pin head there. Put an m, doesn't really matter where I put the marker now because as long as they are just going to add some sound to it. And I think no, not that. Yeah. It sounds like it's something's disappearing into a whole grab that pull it down, bring it there. So if I go yeah, that's about right, actually. Yeah. I guess I can make that clip a bit longer. Sweet. Perfect. Now the only other thing that I want to do is give some sort of a nice saw, sort of like a laser laser Marie vibrating sound, like a lolling sound for each scroll. Like, uh, it's hard to explain. Like a beam, laser beam, like a scanner, I guess. Here we go. I guess kinda be Now I like that. I do like that actually. But one of the great things with Final Cut is even though this, my scrolls that I go through, my hands are a bit older, a lot faster than how long that sound is. I can just be that sound up. So I'm going to grab it, bring it down. And all I gotta do is look for the places where I started scrolling. And then that's where that down to there. But I just want to click on that. Click on the actual audio of that scanning beam. Go to this button here, which will allow me to change the speed, make it false by eight times. Let me too fast. Let's play it back. As she forced us make the speed change from here as well. Make it four times. That's much, much better. So if you now look at that, perfect. So I want to use that same sound. But I wanna make sure I cut it off at the point where I don't hear it. So I can choose only that particular sound there. The next one is going to be around here. And it's not necessarily the I'm trying to match the start of the clip to the 2M, my hand scrolling, I just want to drive it exactly at the point where the audio actually starts appearing on that game. So again, there's like a blank section there. I don't want to catch that. We're gonna catch it around around. And again, you can do a bail clotted narrowed this and just suited to you TOO fancy evict that one. Did the job zone. And essentially, we just need to do the exact same thing for each of the hand scrolls and then you'll golden. So let's see what the finished article looks like off I've done adding it to the remaining two. Okay, so I've added the sound effects to the remaining strolls. Let's see how the final product looks. Slow play back there. Great. 7. Conclusion: So there you have it. Instagram hologram effect or whatever you want. Hologram effect, as long as your showing a recording of your screen recording. And as you can see, it's very, very easy. Five simple steps doesn't take too much time. Any plug-ins that are required are provided free of charge in this course. So you will have everything you need to know how to do it. And in all honesty, you can be a bit more creative. I just showed you on my screen there. If you wanted to, you can start making videos like let's say a feature is to comb. And you decided to, you know, you just walk downstairs and you know, what's the news today? And then you tap on some button and a good book and it appears on the screen and you'll just reading through the new screen. So hopefully you guys liked it. Feel free to give a good rating for this if you did like it, and if you didn't like it, please let me know why can improve on. And hopefully I'll do that for the next course is going forward. Just on that, I will be making a lot more special effects courses on Pharmaco protein. And the aim here is to try and get you guys to see how easy it is to use their software. And hopefully you guys will stick around to learn them and check them out. All right. Take care guys.
