Reflective Guides


Reflective Guides is designed to work with Autocrop or similar setup. It was made to make it easy to find the balance points in your video. Wherever you place anything, an image, a title, whatever, you can find the exact opposite locations simply and easily.

Requires FCP 10.4.10 or higher (may be backdated to 10.4).

Reflective Guides: Perfect Balance | Perfect Symmetry

Reflective Guides works in any aspect ratio clip. Position measurements are in Percent of Screen direction.

Reflective Guides has two OSCs – one for “top left” and one for “bottom right” outlining of a subject.

The guide lines are automatically positioned to cross the center of the OSCs and also on the opposite sides of the screen – both horizontally and vertically.

You can’t miss!

The optionally displayed “CTL infos” show position data for both OSCs.

There are two versions of this effect included with the download:

Version 1 of this effect only shows the actual position of the OSCs. Version 2 displays the actual position as well as the reflective positions (in the smaller text size).
