I'm looking for some effect that simulate the Tap and Pitch effect that we usualy do on a iPad.
I explain better: I recorded a movie directly from my iPad and know I need to evidence the moment I touched the screen or i pitched a picture to resize.
Is there any effect that do that?
I created this exact for a training company about two years ago. I used Motion, and made FCPX generators. This is very general, but here goes.
For swipes, make a custom frame size project to match the iPad screen (I forget what that is). This helps with aspect ratio and such, as a standard 720 or 1080 will give you problems matching these up to an iPad screen later in the edit. We learned that the hard way.
Then I used plain filled circle shapes with very fast fade in/out. I also added a "tail" to the dots that grows and shrinks at it moves, to exaggerate the movements. I did one and exported it as a ProRes 4x4 (to retain alpha). Then I can simply add as many as I need (two for pinch, three/four for swipes), and rotate as needed for direction.
I duplicated this Motion project and did one that just comes in and out quickly for a tap. So I had two generators, one of swipes, one for taps.
thanks for you reply.
I don't use Motion, and I'm not sure to have understood what you wrote (I'm italian).
I don't know if is possible in this forum (and also for you), but is possible for you to send me the generators you created?
I did them under contract to a client, so no, I can't share them. You're going to have to learn Motion, IMHO.
Although I seem to remember someone doing third party commercial generators you could buy with fingers or something, for this purpose. Don't remember where I saw that, or if it is even still around any longer. That was a couple years ago.
