Learn how to take a chronologic timeline and animate inside FCPX with the ProChrono Plugin

Creative developers of FCPX Plugins have announced the release of a new Lesson for ProChrono plugin from Pixel Film Studios.

“Learn how to take a chronologic timeline and animate inside FCPX with the ProChrono Plugin,” said Christina Austin, CEO of Pixel Film Studios. “Users will have fun making their chronological timeline.”

Learn how to make timelines in Final Cut Pro X with ProChrono from Pixel Film Studios. Users can easily lay ProChrono over personalized footage, pictures, or a solid colored background. Choose from titles with up to three events with pictures or with text only ProChrono is self-animating, making it easy FCPX users to create with efficiency.

With self-animating presets, users simply have to put their media inside the Drop Zones and customize the look of their timeline. ProChrono will do the rest. Drag and stack a few of the Event title layers in the FCPX timeline. Stagger the layers to create pauses in the animation. Once everything lined up, lay a “Line” preset over all of layers and stretch it to cover them all.

Go to the media library and select an image and drag it into the timeline below an Event. Line an image up with a Drop Zone and make it the same length. Select the title in the timeline. 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.

Once the images are in their designated Drop Zones, discard them by deleting or disabling them in the timeline by pressing “V” on the keyboard. Repeat this step with other two Events. Move the play head over the middle of the first event and then select it. Use the controls in FCPX Inspector to adjust the reflectivity, rotation, scale and color of the event. Then fill out the description and date text fields.

Go to the ProChrono presets in the Titles Library. Place a “Background and Camera” layer over everything in the timeline and make it the same length. Select the layer in timeline. Then go to the FCPX Inspector. Use the controls to adjust the Vignette and color of the background. Lastly, use the Camera Controls to rotate the timeline.
