Waveform Kit made to convert audio waveform images into animations
You already have the audio representation built right into Final Cut Pro. Why not put it to use! Dress it up for “show” or build onscreen representation of the audio tracks to be used onscreen while editing your clips. It’s a great way to visually sync up titles and other content to the audio track.
Four Effects are included in this kit:
(These effects are not limited to audio images! They can be used for any content.)
Time Marker — used to add the timing animation. It can be used as another style of progress bar for any type of content.
SC Reflect V — used to convert one sided waveforms into traditional two-sided waveforms. It creates an adjustable “mirror image” within the content. It can be used to create some very interesting visuals!
SC Colorizer — provides optional capability of recoloring the waveform graphics. (SC Colorizer is a dumbed down version of other effects available here (scKey Fill, part of SC KeyFX). It can, however, also be used to “Key” out any color selection.)
Alpha Shadow — use in conjunction with SC Colorizer to create a drop shadow for the waveform. (Transparency must exist within the bounds of the original video frame — scaling down content will not allow a drop shadow around the edges.)
All effects have Effects Masks available. Effects Masks includes 1 Color Mask per added effect and as many Shape Masks as you may need!
Remember to Save Effects Preset when you finished your creation so that it can be reused, already made, in the future. Consider it a way of creating your own Custom Effect right in Final Cut Pro without having to go into Motion.
