Generate a detailed point-to-point map animation by entering start and end locations using FCPX Maps. Create close-up maps that display real cities and streets of any location in the world, or zoom out to show travel from country to country. Adjust maps in 3D space to get dynamic angles and add additional points to display stops along the way.

To use FCPX Maps, simply enter in locations for both the start and end point, set the zoom level, and hit the Generate Map button. FCPX Maps will automatically create a map and animation that moves from one point to the next. There are six available map styles in this package: Street, Outdoor, Dark, Light, Satellite and Satellite Street.

Create additional stops in a path by adding new points. To add a new point, just hold the shift key and click on the path. Drag the new point to a desired location. Users can create a dynamic travel display by placing new points on additional cities and areas. Hit the Clear Path button to remove extra points.

Editors are given a variety of 3D camera functionality with controls like position, rotation, depth of field, and control over the apex of the path. FCPX Maps is set to link the position of the camera to the path by default, but users can uncheck this if they would like to manually position the camera.

FCPX Maps includes a drop zone indicator that moves along the generated path. Users are able to upload their own media into the drop zone. Add images like planes, boats and cars to denote modes of transportation. Any media can be applied. 3 reflective drop zone and text layers are also included so that users can mark points with logos, photos, text and animations.
