Steps is a collection of 12 Final Cut Pro X transition effects that allow you to graphically demonstrate a procedure or process. Choose from 6 Series transitions to show steps in a procedure (such as the steps to making a pizza) or choose from 6 Cycle transitions to show steps in a repeating process (such as the steps in the water cycle). Add video or still images to user-definable drop zones; modify the frame, text and background.  Adjust the camera to create the exact framing you like. Ripple Steps: the world’s first video effect that shows them how it’s done.

This plugin is delivered through a software called FxFactory. You can buy the tutorial directly by clicking the buy button, or try a free trial of the software by installing FxFactory and demoing the plugin.
