Alex Gollner’s FCP effects and tweaks have been around for many years and now he’s updated and added new ones for the new Final Cut Pro X. These six effects give you more control over the way transform and trim effects work in Final Cut Pro X.
You can choose how values change between keyframes – effect the shape of the value curves for x position, y position, rotation, scale and edge trim amount:
You can also control the order of these effects. You can trim before scaling, then scale before rotating and rotate before setting x and y position.

Here are the controls for all six effects:
