Developers of Final Cut Pro plugins and themes have released a new tutorial entitled Translice Lesson for Final Cut Pro X.

“Translice lesson is a great overview to using this fun and entertaining transition pack,” said Christina Austin, CEO of Pixel Film Studios. “Translice allows users to add a fun transition from one media image to the next.”

Learn how to create a split screen transition with the Translice Lesson from Pixel Film Studios. Translice allows Final Cut Pro X users to transition from clip to clip using sliding split-screen panels. With over 30 customizable presets, users can create endless animated transitions without ever having to set a keyframe in FCPX.

Translice allows Final Cut Pro X users to add sliding split screen transitions.

With 32 pre-animated transitions, users can simply place one between 2 clips. Translice will do the rest. By dragging 2 clips from the media library into the timeline. The Final Cut Pro X video editor is instructed to click and drag to trim the end of the first clip and the beginning of the second clip, so that the transition has video to overlap.

Then, scan through the Translice presets inside the transitions library.

Drag one of the transitions between two clips. And scale it to the desired length.

Now the user is ready to customize the look of our Translice transition.

Place the playhead in the center of the transition and select it in the timeline. Go to the FCPX Inspector window. Use the Pause Length slider to control the speed of the animation. Fill out the text field, and then choose a color and font for the text. Then, use the Border controls to set the width and color of the lines.

Finally, the FCPX editor will set the color of the background for the text box.

If the user would like to put a video or image in the extra box instead of text, the user can by find the clip and inserting into the extra area from the FCPX media library. When the user finds the clips desired, drag it onto the timeline under the transition.

For the next step it will help to have “Snapping“ activated. Cut the clip to match the length of the transition, activate the trim tool and scrub through the video clip to reveal the desired section. Once everything is lined up perfectly, the user needs to compound the video clip “by-itself”. Move the playhead to the first frame of the compound clip and select the transition in the timeline. Now click the first Drop Zone icon in the Inspector window. Select the video clip as close to the beginning as possible, and click the blue "Apply Clip" button in the FCPX Viewer window.
