Make Your 3D Titles Come to Life

Once you have a solid grasp on how to build a 3D title from scratch, you’ll then turn your attention to making your titles come to life by adding custom materials, realistic finishes and surface textures.

Create 3D Titles with Substance

Choosing a lighting style & reflection map is a big part of selling your 3D title as an object that lives in the real world, and in this tutorial, you’ll learn what combination of light, environment and material will produce the most convincing results.

Put Masks to Work for You

Masks are an indispensable tool for limiting applied effects and color corrections to specific areas of the frame. We’ll show you how to apply multiple shape mask and control their processing order. You’ll also learn how to use a Color Mask in combination with other masks to achieve just the look you’re after.

    Learned lots from this tutorial. Loved the tips on how to maximize FCPx features without using motion…..a stepping stone to better videos with FCPx and thinking about how to use motion in the future to become even more creative.

    It’s truly amazing what you can do now in the way of 3D titles with Final Cut Pro X and Steve takes you thoroughly through all the features. The reason I got this tutorial was for understanding masks. This seemingly magic function of FCP X was easy to understand and Steve’s applications were unique and creative.

    This was a great update to the 10.2 FCPX videos. It helped me find tools I use that had been changed since 10.2.
