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.)

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.
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!

Exporting and Sharing have been covered many times here, but since the advent of 4K, things have changed just a little and it’s worth a quick recap. If you want more information on what YouTube or Vimeo are going to do to your file, read this article here. And if you want to know more about metadata and media management on shared files, read this. In this article, I’ll show you how to get more control over your H.264 exports, because some of these options don’t quite work the way you’d expect. If you’re exporting 4K as well as 1080p, and especially if you’re delivering files direct to a client, you might need to change your ways.
