Hey guys this is E Mix 77 or a.k.a Apple soldier and apple shake guru, both of thoses are my accounts so you can get Mac Vs Pc on apple soldier account and all your tutorial needs on apple shake guru account and in this tutorial, we’re going to talk about teleportation. Now a long time ago, I had a teleportation video and how to teleport in final cut express and final cut pro. Now, I was the first one that I’ve known of on youtube to come out with this teleportation tutorial so I figure out redo it for you guys because since I’ve come out with the first ones; been a lot of other people that’s been posting tutorial and stuff and I just wanted to redo my tutorial, use my own media and show you how I do it and how I’ve always done it.
So here’s our project, as you can see here. Let me play it for you and you’ll see what we’re going to end up with. Let me get rid of this war frame. Okay, I’m going to play it and I’m going to come and sit down and I’m going to teleport out of the chair. You see I come and sit down, here I go and I’m gone. Pretty cool huh? So that’s the effect we’re going to do today.
So let’s get started. I’m going to go to file, new sequence, let’s double click our sequence to get fresh time line in the excel, okie dokie. Now what we’re going to so is I have my movie; we move my movie in. We don’t need any audios, I’m going to get rid of my audio. Okay, here’s my original movie; of just me sitting there in front of the computer, I’ve come in and just sit down, okay.
So, what I need to do is grab the steel frame, as you can see at the beginning of the video there is nothing going on; I’m not the film, I’m got in the picture anywhere I can, it’s just a good place to take a still frame. So I’m going to go up to modify, make freeze frame and that’s going to make a freeze frame right here, as you can see. And you can go up and you can specify how long you wan to freeze frame to be, I made mine 00:02:24 in seconds, okay. Take your freeze frame and drag it down into your media browser and right here is mine, I’ll double click it; get loads of that right there it is, as you can see, there’s this still frame, okay.
So the first thing we’re going to want to do is make a copy of this clip. So if I hold option shift, click and drag up, I’ll make a copy of this clip, okay. So the first thing I want to do is I’m going to go to the very end here and I’m going to go back two seconds. Okay, now, I’ve let it back two seconds. I’m going to hit the p key to get the pin tool and I’m going to go my time line and click on my little opacity marker and that will leave a little diamond as you can see.
Now if you can’t see these lines on your clip, then go down here and hit this opacity button here, just right here. As you can see, those lines are gone now, after shift you can go to the back. So now I made this from opacity marker here. Now I’m going to make my, apply 00:03:31 and then I go back two more seconds. Right there and I’m going to hit another marker; place another marker.
Okay, now I have a marker here, I have a marker here and we’re going to go, I’m going to hit the a key to go back to my pointer, okay. So now that we’ve done this, let’s take our first little marker here and pull it straight down like that, okay. So let’s double click this clip; I’ll load it in the viewer and we’re going to add a blur. Go to effects, find your blur folder, get your wind blur and drop your wind blur on your top clip.
Now, when you go to filters, you’ll see a wind blur adjustments. So we’re going to make our directions the same, we’re going to make out radius 50 and we’re going to make our steps about 10, okay. So that puts our wind blur on our clip.
Now also, what we’re going to want to do is we’re going to want to add a mask. So go down to your mat folder, okay. Grab your mask, shape, drag and drop it on your top clip. Also drag and drop the mask feather. Now under your filter tab, you’ll see you have a mask shape and a mask feather. I want to make my shape oval, I want to center it over me and we’ll make to take the scale and go up with it, like so. We go down here to where and see. As you where the opacity markers turn down; I’m looking at the bottom clip because this top clip is totally, you know, you can see thru it so I got to go down here to where I can see some of my clip. Now you can see right here around my 00:05:28, okay, so I can adjust it and you can see my vertical scale, horizontal scale. And I want to cover myself up, pretty good. Make it as big as you have to, you know, okay, and there we go. Now my mask is covering me. I want to make my mask feather about 22; net feather out the edge, as you can see the edges a\has disappeared, okay.
Now what I’m going to do is use my still clip that I made. So what I’m going to do is take my still clip, take your play hit and put it on the second opacity marker or the very first thing you made. Take your still frame and drag and drop it right there at the opacity marker, as you can see, okay.
Now we have our still frame on top of our movie so now what we’re going to do is hit our p key to get our pin tool, go back half way thru and make a pin mark and then make another one at the very beginning and pull that marker, straight down. You zoom in to my time line here and what you’ll end up with is this right here. We’ll see about half way thru at all our opacity markers comes down and meets in it; look should look just like this; you have two movies, you have two movies and your freezed frame right on top of the other movies at the end and the opacity should come right down like this row right here, okay.
So I’m going to have to render this. As you can see, look at my CPU’s, they arte completely maxed out and the reason for this is because as you can see, I’m vacuum coding a crap load, a videos from m y new site and this thing is being used to running constantly and you can see I’m using 6Gigs or random 00:08:05 and my CPU’s are just maxed. So I’m doing a screen capture tutorial and rendering all the same time here so my Mac is klind of busy at the moment; it might be a little slower than normal but it looks like to me, she’s moving pretty quick. So, let me get this rendered out here and I don’t even look like I’m going to have to edit out the video. I think we’re going to be fine as long as I can make it under that ten minute mark. That ten minute mark is really a limitation for a lot of us youtube users; now I agree that the ten minute, sometimes videos go over ten minutes, you lose interest, ya ya ya, but videos like these, like learning and teaching videos, they kind of need longer than ten minutes a lot of times.
So here we are at 95%, we’re done rendering so let’s go with our regain in here and let’s play it back and see what it looks like. And I’m gone, that’s it, that’s hoe you do the teleportation effect in final cut pro or express, all the filters and everything should work the same in both versions.
