MUSCLECAR / free Title.plugin 20 Sep 2017 08:41 #90664

// dl, unzip and drag into ~/Movies/Motion Templates/Titles //

… winter is coming… time to ‘play’ with knobs&sliders:
This is MUSCLECAR, a new, free title plugin for FCPX, inspired by … muscle cars .
Watch the demo:


I hope, the Inspector is - mainly - self-explanatory:
Two colour wells - for background and text (the ‘outline’ is always chrome, or when you set the Environment to zero it’s black)

You can use MUSCLECARS without background… resp. on any other clip underneath.

There are three optional Edge-designs, and two light situations: two spots in eye-highth and a central one from the top.

When you keyframe Rotation (of Environment), you add some extra ‘glitz’ to the bevels.

When you add some Sweep = cam movement ‘around’ the text, you can adjust a shallow DoF effect: ‘Shallowness’ works like a aperture (less/lots of DoF) and the FocusPoint slider sets the … FocusPoint.

Finally, a bit experimental:
Cam Position not only offer that, but two animated ‘actions’ .



For those ‘real life simulations’, computational DoF, reflection et al, there’s a lot of processing in the background - this brings my 2012 MacMini almost to an halt. Don’t wonder, when you use it and experiment with it, that FCPX isn't as snappy as usual… :blush:


Play with the settings, use diff. Fonts, in use here for example Raceway, Dodger, Microgb, Porsche - available at dafont.com (read&understand ToU and please be nice to ©!)


Enjoy Movie Making

Thanks for the flowers, gentlemen! :)

@Pielle:
when you open it in Motion, you'll notice, very, very basic '3D' - compared to your marvel. Just the basic 'use a 5000 pts ◼︎ as object/background' trick …

I focussed more on camera and lights stuff… computational-DoF is a 'hot' topic.-

fun fact: 'Environment' in use is - what else - 'Parking Lot' … hahaha!
