Stylized Effects with ProTrace: Volume 1 in Final Cut Pro X
Take your footage to school with the Chalk plugin. This plugin was professionally created to turn your footage into a realistic chalk-drawn cartoon that you can composite onto a real chalkboard background. Chalk is a must have plugin for giving your footage a cool, hand-drawn look.
Turn your movie into a moving piece of art with the Paint plugin. This is a great effect for giving your story a fantasitical feel without having to hand-paint thousands of stills. PROTRACE also includes the Watercolor plugin which works great on a bold footage with sharp definitions and outlines.
Making a presentation or a company video? Use the Blueprint effect on footage of buildings or products to create a beautiful moving blueprint diagram. The plugin works great on images with sharp defined edges.
Save a tree! Make your video into a pencil sketch cartoon without using thousands of pieces of paper. This plugin combined with the Frame Rate Adjustment plugin is a great way to make your footage into a fun flip book style cartoon. The Pencil plugin works best on wide shots. Color Pencil plugins are also included, and if you have high contrast source footage, try the Charcoal plugin in PROTRACE.
Want your movie to look like a million bucks? Use the Bank Note plugin to make your film look like it was etched and printed on money. You can also adjust the hue of your footage to imitate the currency of different countries.
Making a graphic novel movie? POW! The Comic plugin can outline your subjects with ink and shade them in with a halftone pattern giving your footage a printed, Pop Art appearance. Going for more of a Sunday Funnies look? Enter the Newspaper plugin, also included in PROTRACE. These plugins work best on wide shots.
Customize your PROTRACE
All PROTRACE plugins have built-in customizable settings. With easy-to-use sliders, quickly adjust: effect amounts, blurs, brush strokes, and much more. You can also place the Frame Rate Adjustment effect on top of any of the PROTRACE plugins to add a flip book or stop motion animation style to your footage.
