Create liquid effects using ProLiquid's 60 plus preset package. ProLiquid contains an overwhelming amount of control and content with no trouble for the user. Swap out new liquid generations with the click of a button and use the designated parameters in the inspector window to create any look! ProLiquid includes realistic physics options, masking tools, and spectacular 3D fluidity. ProLiquid is a Final Cut Pro X exclusive.

ProLiquid comes loaded with over 60 premade liquid effects the user can drag and drop into the FCPX timeline. Presets include liquids that start emitting at the beginning and presets that are midway through animations so users can choose between progressive fluid cycles and non-stop consistency. Presets emit from the center, top, bottom, left, right and many more angles. Each preset can be customized infinitely using on-screen controls for positioning and parameters in the inspector window.

Change the rate at which liquid particles move around ProLiquid's 3d environment using the parameters located in the Camera Controls section. Users are given control over the rotations of the X, Y, & Z axis to create stunning 3D looks. The emission range and angles located under Emission Controls can also be adjusted to change the radius and angles in which particles emit in three dimensions.

ProLiquid comes with 3 practical effect types and presets that combine them to create unique animations. Utilize Gravity Control to adjust the acceleration at which particles rise or fall in any scene. Wind Stream Physics can be applied to create streams of fluid in any direction. Alter the air thickness and velocity to achieve any stream of liquid. Finally, collision controls allow particles to react to the edge of the screen by realistically bouncing or flowing into liquid puddles.

By default ProLiquid is set to appear as a solid color for optimal performance, but users can easily add beautiful highlights and shadows to any liquid to give it a beautiful and natural look with very little decrease in speed. Adjust the brightness and ambient lighting of liquid as well as the softness and depth for more dynamic looks. The Highlight can also be sharpened and brightened for ultimate customization.

Users will receive an additional masking effect tool with ProLiquid. Instead of colors, this tool will emit a mask over any media. To use, simply drag the effect onto a clip and release to apply. The effect will now be emitting parts of the clip with realistic liquid fluidity. Create beautiful effects within seconds using ProLiquid's masking tool.

ProLiquid was designed exclusively for Final Cut Pro X users. To use, drag and drop one of ProLiquid's 60+ liquid generators into the FCPX timeline. Next, select the generator and navigate to the inspector window on the upper right side of Final Cut Pro X. Make sure the generators tab is selected. Users can adjust a variety of intuitive parameters to create millions of fluid animations. Pixel Film Studios makes editing easy using Final Cut Pro X.
