I'm looking for a plug-in that creates a page peel for Motion. One that works with Alpha Channels and lets you animate the page curl so you can choose to not let it peel all the way. Basically, one that operates like the AE page curl. And I'm looking for an answer other then "use AE then". Thanks.
Thanks Alex, but for me, the Page Peel transition in FCP won't let you place an object such as a .psd with an alpha channel in its back. If you do, it turns the Alpha Channel black. Hopefully Motion 5 will have a page peel much like After Effects. Just my two cents.
The Curl filter is really cool and I didn't know about it. However, it will not work with alpha channels as well. Instead of making a part of an image see through where the alpha channel is it makes it black. If you wanted to flip though an old book with rough (torn) edges it would be black on the edge whereas in After Effects it will be transparent.
What if you use the curl feature in FCP, duplicate your media and stack them on V2 and V3, leaving V1 empty. Then with the copy on V2, play with any of the color, gamma, or brightness & contrast controls until you have what is essentially an alpha channel. Then set the composite mode on the V3 copy to Travel Matte Luma.
The V3 clip will use what lies directly beneath it as a Matte. White shows, black is transparent and passes through to whatever lies on V1.
