Blend Modes FCPX Effect

March 2nd, 2013 by admin under Effects, Final Cut Pro X

So this is the blend modes effect that I created during the motion 5 demo at the February Louisville Final Cut Pro User Group meeting. It’s a very simple effect that allows you at use blend modes on the clip that is applied to without having to duplicate the clip and apply the blend mode on the clip above. It has 2 sliders, 1 checkbox and 1 dropdown menu.

You first choose a blend mode from the drop down menu. Then you can adjust the opacity slider for the desired blend amount. You have the option to have a blur applied to the top layer by checking the check box. You then can adjust the blur amount with the 2nd slider.
