FCPX Generator: Pixel Grid

August 20th, 2012 by admin under Blog, Effects, Final Cut Pro X, Generators

This is the first in a series of generators I’ve created. I recently had some work that required me to have some funky backgrounds. So once this job was done I took what I had created and added some nice perks too it so I could use it again in other projects. I have 4 different generators this is the first one. I call it pixel grid. Because well….it is a grid of pixels.

ControlsThe controls are pretty basic.

You have the pixel color and the background color of the generator. The amount of pixels on screen. The scale of the pixels. The rotation of the grid/pixels. The grid color. The grid line feather (its creates a pretty cool effect. And the Grid line opacity, so you can turn off the grid. Below are a few screen shots from the generator.

    Hey Mikey

    Thanks for this generator. I had been looking for something that would simulate zooming in on the pixels of a TV. This grid nearly got me there. It does have uneven line spacing at a couple of points for some reason and I used four of these generators scaled to 50% to get the cells small enough.
