“Panel Revolution allows FCPX editors to create a unique animated panel slideshow which enables users to show off personal media one shot at a time,” said Christina Austin – CEO of Pixel Film Studios.
Panel Revolution’s slides include drop-down menus so that users can customize the animations. Choose the direction that the previous scene exits the frame, then choose the direction that the new scene animates into it. Also, users can randomize the panel animations by choosing a preset from a list of 10 randomized animations. Finally, choose the direction that each line of text animates from. Users are given complete control with Panel Revolution inside FCPX.
Panel Revolution also comes with an LED flickering background that loops infinitely in the timeline. Change the colors of the lights and backdrop as well as how many columns and rows of lights there are. Offset the lights using a slider for additional tweaking. Users can make great use of this background by applying logos, text, photos and more on top of it and using it as a backdrop.
The flare overlay allows users to add an extra layer of stylization to scenes. This overlay’s minimal controls give on-screen repositioning, color selection, light falloff, contrast, and flicker amount to users. Plus, use the particle overlay to add defocused rising particles to the scene for extra stylization. Users can color grade whole scenes at once by using the Colors & Effects tool. Adjust parameters like desaturation, sepia, tint and value to create the look of the slideshow.
Panel Revolution also comes with two lower third presets and a title opener. Display information using the lower thirds which users can place anywhere throughout the frame of the scene. Choose which direction each line of text animates from and edit the placement and color of the flare to further stylize. The opener is a great tool for starting a video or introducing new topics and sections. A plethora of controls helps users create any look inside Final Cut Pro X.
