Urban Hillside comes loaded with fully customizable scene presets, self-animating title elements, wonderous transitions, and a beautiful overlay. Using Pixel Film Studios themes is really easy; simply insert pictures or videos, alter the colors and change the text. Urban Hillside will do the rest.

Urban Hillside comes loaded with self-animating scenes including a drop zone and text preset, drop zone only preset, and a text only preset. Easily change the position of drop zones and text with organized controls found in the top-right inspector window. Uniquely and creatively display photos, videos, titles, and messages without having to set a single keyframe in Final Cut Pro X.

Urban Hillside allows Final Cut Pro X users to completely change the look and vibe of the scene without complicated controls. Change the foreground, midground, and background elements with a simple click of the "Generate" button. To re-color the scene simply rotate the hue dial to pick from an entire range of colors.

Create any 2-point camera movement using intuitive start and end orientation controls in Final Cut Pro X. Start by moving the playhead to the first frame of the generator preset and setting the starting position and rotation. Next, go to the last frame of the preset and set the end position and rotation. Using the speed slider, users can easily determine the length of the camera movement.

Urban Hillside's frame overlay acts as a stylizing title layer for scenes, photos, and videos. Utilize Urban Hillside's customizable overlay to add a fun and unique frame on top of visual media in any Final Cut Pro X production. Alter the frame tint, scale, and drop shadow to create different looks.

Urban Hillside's customizable background key gives users a tool to display text or keyed media in a unique way. Background keys' subtle animations make it the perfect backdrop to display messages or showcase people and characters. Customize every aspect from the colors of the skies, to the number of trees, to the height of the hills in the background.

Urban Hillside comes with a self-animating title and a set of thematic lower thirds. Utilize title elements to introduce a scene, setting, or character in any Final Cut Pro X production. Titles are incredibly easy to use in Final Cut Pro X. Simply select a preset and drag it above your personal media or scene presets in the timeline. Then change the text and alter the customizable features to achieve a desired look - Urban Hillside's titles will do the rest.

Urban Hillside comes with four expressive transitions including two wipes, a frame transition, and an environment transition. Easily customize each of these presets using sliders and color swabs within Final Cut Pro X. To use Urban Hillside's transitions simply select a preset and place it between two clips in Final Cut Pro X. Urban Hillside's transitions will seamlessly move from one scene to the next.
