Lens Flare for Final Cut Pro
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
What it is ? – This is a Lens Flare Generator.
How install it ? – click the launch button. Motion 5 will start itself. When Motion is open click save as. Write a generator name - Lens Flare and choose category RGB HOUSE or make it. Click Publish and you are done. If you don’t have Motion 5 look at support site - how to install in FCP.
How it works ? – In Final Cut Pro you will find in Generators RGB HOUSE group, where will be Lens Flare. Drag this generator above all clips in timeline. When it’s there remember to change blending mode to Screen (in video section). You can adjust color, steak color, glow, intensity, scale - apacity and blur of artifacts, position. Any parameter could be stored as a keyframe, so You can easily animate the flare.
System requirements ? - Lion and Final Cut Pro X or Motion 5, rendering time depends on your machine.
Dont have motion 5
Ok I wanted to spend 4 dollars to get a lensflare… Do you think I want to download a 50$ application just to run this one? No...
Well worth it!
Despite some negative reviews I thought I’d give it a shot and I’m glad I did! I do have both Motion 5 and FCPX 10.2. The instructions are indeed a bit off but I figured it out. And once I did, it worked like a charm. Here are some pointers that may help other users:
- When in Motion 5 instead of Save As, use "Publish Template” option. When in there, make sure to check “Publish As Final Cut Generator" checkbox. After you select a category (or create a new one - it doesn’t have to be RGB House - you can call it whatever you want; I called it "My Lens Flare”) hit Ok and you’re done! It will show up in Final Cut Pro!
The rest is pretty easy. Within 5 minutes I was able to create a pretty awesome looking moving flare with a couple of keyframe points! I haven’t tried all the parameters yet but even from what I saw for under $5 it is an absolute steal, as far as I am concerned! Love it!
