A 3D Generator with drop zone (just for fun)
The Helm Wheel opener effect from Gilligan’s Island. Features: animate wheel spin, wheel tilt and “yaw” (x and y axis rotations) and position (includes an onscreen control to assist placement.) Drop Zone controls to allow pan and scale to fit media in place.
This effect requires installing a font (ZZSC Ahoy). Installing specific fonts for these effects guarantees that the effect will always look the same (Macs are notorious for font substitutions and FCPX will change “common” fonts when new fonts are installed before [alphabetically] fonts used in some effects.) Also, the font you are required to install is of the highest resolution quality and Sight-Creations fonts are crafted with nearly 30 years of knowledge and experience.
