Creating with ProText Parallax in Final Cut Pro X
Seamlessly Incorporate Text
ProText Parallax allows Final Cut Pro X editors to seamlessly add text into the a scene with absolute ease. First, adjust the Z position of text or texts to achieve different text depths. Next, utilize two simple on-screen controls to match the camera animation within your video footage. To match the movement of dolly-in and dolly-out camera shots, utilize the “Dolly” slider provided in controls section to and tweak the Angle of View to match the speed of the shot. ProText Parallax works with both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional text.
3D Visualization with Edit Mode
The “Edit Mode” checkbox allows users to better visualize text in 3-dimensional space from an angled perspective. Vary depth in “Edit Mode” to better understand the relative distances of each text. Remember to uncheck before rendering or exporting the video.
Angle of View & Depth of Field
Adjust the “Angle of View” slider to perfectly match the degree of parallax between text and the movement within a given video clip. Decrease the Angle of View to create less movement for slow-moving slider shots. Alternatively, increase the Angle of View to match the dynamics of fast-moving video clips. Editors can create the illusion of Depth of Field using blur options found in the text controls section in the inspector window. Decrease the font size and boost the blur to create the illusion of text in the distance.
