This is a 3D model of a classic film slate, or clapper, that contains a number of features, including an LED Timecode display which can be set by parameter control in the generator’s inspector.
Other features are animation parameters (which can be used in conjunction with the preset animations provided), customizing the look of the slate, including the color bars along the top.
There are four preset “handwriting” fonts (and that will be all that’s available in this version).
There is an icon set for indoor/outdoor; closeup/landscape; day/night; ext. mic’ing.
Please watch the video for tips on creating the one second stop frame (which must be done within FCPX on the storyline).
Use of SlateTC 3D requires the installation of the font: ZZSCSlateTC-Regular.ttf. The font has its own licensing, please make sure you read it before using.
This effect uses the “3D Text” feature in FCPX which may require a minimum of 1GB of RAM. This effect will require FCPX 10.2 or later. Please do not attempt to purchase without these requirements!
