by Logan Baker, Rocketstock

Make your images and screen pop with this free plugin and video tutorial.

No matter what types of video you make, you will eventually need to mix up the form and engage your viewers in new ways. Following trends — as well as creating them — can help filmmakers and videographers stay relevant in the age of YouTube. So whether it’s a music video, a fight scene, or a lyric video, this effect will disrupt your shots in the best way possible.

Drag an Adjustment Layer over the portion of your clip you want to affect. Go to the Effects tab, and find the plugin you saved it as. Once you’ve dragged the effect on top of the clip, you can adjust the amount of zoom the camera takes. (This customization is only available in the “pro” version of the plugin, which costs $8.), if you use the free version, you can just copy and past the adjustment layer over and over so the bounce effect is continuous. With the Pro version, you can also apply a Blur Effect as well as a Swirl and Shake effect to enhance the chaos you’ve created.

Idustrial Revolution also has a FREE FCPX Screen Pump plugin, here.…
Screen Pump is a great free title effect plugin that does away with the need to build screen pumps manually with keyframes in Final Cut Pro X. This is great not only for gamers who publish videos, but any production where a ‘pump’ or ‘bump’ can be used to enhance a recording or video footage.

It’s exceeding easy to use, just drag the title effect above the clip you wish to pump and adjust the duration. Published parameters include the amount of zoom, the pause at full zoom and the acceleration curve of the zoom.

The effect can dragged up and down the timeline for accurate placement and it can also be copied and pasted to make a new screen pump. Apologies for our bad COD Black Ops play!

This plugin has been made free to download to the FCPX community, however please read the installation instructions and copyright restrictions.
