I’m building a FCPX Effect in Motion that controls cropping of the frame into different thirds of the screen.  Finalizing the design of it, I would like to publish the Effect Source Final Cut Placeholder Pan & Scale controls.  When I go into the Final Cut Placeholder and try to publish the entire section, it publishes the ‘X’ controls, not both X&Y.

Same thing occurs when I try to publish the Pan controls or the Scale controls.  It publishes the ‘X’ scale controls.  I can “manually” publish both X & Y controls for each of these settings but I’m trying to go for a simple control design.  I’d prefer to stay away from Generators.

Solved my issue. Instead of using a mask as my rig control, I instead used an image mask in the control rig. The controls from rectangle used as the reference can be published and properly reflect changes that are needed for the desired effect.
