Have you ever visited VideoCopilot? It’s a great effects resource run by Andrew Kramer and he recently posted a scopes tutorial and the project files. I got to work and created free Final Cut Pro X scope and binocular effects with an authentic look and feel with 6 styles and 12 crosshairs. Remember, don’t shoot your eye out. 😉
If you need something more customizable check out Ripple Training’s Optics effects. Optics is fantastic for creating first-person perspectives through different camera, scope and binocular lenses.
