What is this?

Last week as I was searching the internet for “three toed socks” I came across a great tutorial by Hiromi Matsumoto. He shows how to make a flipping/rotating tile transition for Final Cut Pro X. I really dig this style of transition so I made it for myself and decided to give it away. Raise the roof!

How to install it

  1. Download the file.
  2. Unzip file.
  3. Move the unzipped folder “Stupid Raisins” to Movies>Motion Templates>Transitions. HINT: If you already have Stupid Raisins folder in Transitions, move the Tile Pop folder from the freshly unzipped Stupid Raisins folder into the existing Stupid Raisins folder. Confused? I am.
  4. Restart Final Cut Pro X and you’re good to go.

How to use it

In Final Cut Pro X click on the Transition browser. Select Stupid Raisins and then look for Square Tile Flip transition.

Drag the transiton onto your clips and then select the transiton. Depending on the title you’ll have some or all of the following options.
  • Origin – Use this to select where you want the animation to start.
  • Build Style – This determines how the animation is displayed. You can have the animation go row by row, column by column or by row and column at the same time. Build Style only works if you select Upper Left, Upper Right, Lower Left or Lower Right in Origin.
  • Box Size – You can make the box bigger or smaller. Be careful when you make it smaller because you’ll have spaces in between the boxes.
  • Box Columns and Rows – Adjust the number of columns and rows.
  • Box End Scale – Adjust the box scale for the end of the transition. If you want the box to grow smaller during the transition, pull the slider to the left. If you want the box to grow larger during the transition, pull the slider to the right.
  • Box End Rotation – The boxes can rotate during the transition. To start with, they rotate 90° on the Y axis.
  • Box End Position – Where do you want the boxes to go during the transition? Up, down, forwards, backwards? Use this control to determine where the boxes end postion is.
  • Falloff Amount – You can use this to adjust how soft or hard the transition is. The higher the number the softer.

    if I do it ,then I get sound from both (the left and the right side to hear and that’s not good.
    I thought the film would shift to the right, but now it does not work well what am I doing wrong?

  4. JK says:


    I have no ‘Transitions’ folder in my Motion folder (I created one, but that didn’t work). What do I need to do to get this into FCPX?


  5. In Motion Templates you should have a Transitions folder.
