Finger Swipes

Robert Jan

This item / tutorial is available from the Creators website using link below

I have created a 1 second transition for FCPX.
The transition swipes from shot A to shot B. You can choose from 3 different types (Male Finger, Female Finger or a Toddler's Hand), you can select 4 different directions (Left, Right, Up, Down).
There is also a checkbox for a drop shadow and you have the possibility for a horizontal offset so you can move the finger or hand a little to the right or left when the finger is covering an important part of the shot.

You first have to download and install the (free) Spherico Motion Template Tool, made by Andreas Kiel.
You can find it here:
When that is done please download the Finger Swipes Transition distributable here:
After downloading and unzipping, you open the RJvdDoes_Finger_Swipes_Transition folder and double click the .mtt file. This will install the transition in the right directory.
