How to use the Free RT 360° Transitions Plugin

Note: This plugin requires Final Cut Pro 10.4 or later

After installing, follow these steps to apply any of the 6, RT 360 Transitions to your Final Cut Pro X timeline:

Locate the set of plugins in the Ripple 360° Transitions Browser. There are 6 transitions to choose from and they are all applied to your 360 clips in exactly same way.

Drag a 360 Transition out of the Transitions Browser and drop it on an edit point. In the screenshot below, the 360 Circle transition has been applied.

With the transition selected and the Playhead parked over it, press Command-4 to open the Inspector. The controls for adjusting the transition appear at the top of the Inspector. Additionally, there are onscreen controls for changing the placement of the transition within the spherical environment.

Below are screenshots of a few other 360 transitions, and their respective Inspector controls. In addition to placement, you can control edge feathering, border width, edge color and more.
