XEffects Snapshots for Final Cut Pro X (FCPX)



XEffects Snapshots is a media rich template plugin with a unique onscreen 3D animation control system. Snapshot automatically freezes video, inserts it into a frame and positions it onto a background in 3D space. All with just a couple of clicks.


Applying Snapshots to footage adds an instant level of professional design and class. Display a single image for impact, or string a succession of Snapshots together to make a montage or title sequence.


Snapshots is easy to use. Razor blade where you want the footage to freeze, choose a frame (add text if you wish) choose a background, set the beginning and start points in 3D by using the onscreen controls, then hit play!


Snapshots comes supplied with over a 100 sample templates that you can drag & drop onto your footage. Use these out of the box, adjust to suit, or build your own from a choice of over 60 hand designed frames or 38 backgrounds. That's over 2,200 different combinations! Select the Dropzone option to use your own backgrounds.


Snapshots makes it easy to:

  • Construct a broadcast title sequence or enliven end credits
  • Punctuate a corporate video with product shots
  • Introduce a speaker on screen
  • Build a wedding, family or product slide show

Snapshots has a unique set of onscreen controls. 

In the centre you will find size, rotation and position adjustments for the still image, along with a frame adjustment control for X & Y position and Z rotation of the composite. That includes the text!


On either side of the frame are are set of rotary controls, on the left is the start position and on the right is the finish. These can be adjusted to alter the X,Y & Z angle and position in Z space.


Further controls can be found in the inspector such as delaying the animation, stopping the animation before the end of the clip and the acceleration curve.


$99 buys you the 107 effects in the pack, which works out at less than a dollar a template! We have also included four free transitions that act as camera shutters. You can test out the Snapshots on your FCPX projects by downloading the watermarked trial for free. Go ahead, try them out!
