Final Cut Effects in Motion
on Oct 28, 2011 at 4:10:50 am

Hi All,
I have created a Final Cut Effects in Motion and its working fine. My .moef file has a duration of 300 frames. If i apply it to a 600frame clip, its stretching and i want to avoid that. Either i can loop it twice or i can select first 300 frame and apply it to that selection only. Pls give me a solution to achieve this.One more thing is there a way to offset the effects?

Thank you,
Praveen N U

Use a Loop marker to keep it from stretching. Not sure what you mean by offsetting.

Thanks Mark ..i will try that..

In Motion we can move the fx layer/stretch layer. Is there a way in FCP to do the same with Final Cut Fx?

Thanks,
Praveen

I've just started working with markers in Motion myself. If you open the help file and search for "loop marker" (no quotes), then the result "Working With Markers in Templates" should help you out.

Depending on the effect you want, you can use Build In, Build Out and Loop markers to e.g. force the effect to perform some task at the same rate all the time or to loop around and keep doing the same thing for as long as the clip the effect is applied to.
