35mm Viewfinder


Originally compatible with very early versions of FCPX, but one part was broken by FCPX updates. This version is compatible with FCPX 10.4.6 or higher. It very likely can be backdated back to 10.2.

35mm Viewfinder


To be installed as an Effect.

Cool little effect that simulates an old-style 35mm SLR camera viewfinder.

  • Microprism focus effect.
  • Exposure needle (analog).
  • Shutter speed.
  • F-stop indicator.

New addition *not* in the video – a checkbox to turn on/off the meter/f-stop/speed overlays.
