Filters and More With Final Cut Pro
Sometimes when I don't have any special projects I'm working on, I grab some random footage and start experimenting. My belief is that experimenting with different types of editing techniques, ect is really the best way to learn. One of my favorites happens to be the "screen" filter. It resides under the composite mode option in a drop down menu that appears after right-clicking on the footage in your timeline. It makes for a really cool picture and is kind of fun to play with. After applying the "screen" composite mode, go under your motion tab in the viewer window and play around with your settings a little bit! Don't be shy! Go ahead, pull the opacity down to about...35 and you will be able to see two images! You can even play around with the "edge feather" option under "crop" in the same menu that you found the opacity. I can't tell you how cool I think that is! Try it, you will have so much fun!
