Shape Pop’s Transitions Get Your Video in Tip-Top Shape

Written by Published in Uncategorized

So you’ve already got a sweet video with crisp footage, bold captions, awe-inspiring effects…you name it. But something’s missing.

Ah, right—clean, seamless transitions that blend perfectly with your video, adding to its appeal without becoming a distraction. That, my friend, is where Shape Pop comes in.

Shape Pop is perfect for just about any project, especially clips with lots of action. Check out this video by one of my customers showing off Shape Pop as he cruises through the Gulf of Mexico on a jet ski:

What is Shape Pop?

Shape Pop is a collection of 30 customizable transitions for Final Cut Pro that utilize—you guessed it—shapes to break your video into circles, squares, triangles, and even more polygons that would make your high school geometry teacher swoon.

It’s simple math: Clip A + Shape Pop + Clip B = the smoothest, coolest looking transition you’ve ever seen.

The best part is, you don’t even need a master’s degree to understand Shape Pop. You can literally toss the plugin into your project and have your transition finalized and perfected in seconds.

Why Shape Pop?

Besides being really awesome, there are tons of reasons you might want to use Shape Pop. But I originally made this FCPX plugin because of 3 big factors:

  1. I didn’t have time to make transitions by hand for every project, and I didn’t have enough money to hire someone to do it for me
  2. I wanted to add a unique transition to my videos that looked great without becoming a distraction
  3. And this is the big one…I was so tired of using complicated tools and plugins that didn’t do what they said they did, or were harder to use than shoving a round peg in a square hole

I made Shape Pop for myself, but it turns out I wasn’t the only videographer who craved cool transition effects (minus the hassle). If that sounds like you, you’re in the right place.

Installing and using Shape Pop is a breeze

Shape Pop and its other Stupid Raisins buddies live on the FxFactory engine, a free resource for distributing the best FCP plugins on the planet. Give it a download and grab your free Shape Pop demo to see just how cool the plugin really is.

When you’re ready for the full version, you can easily download Shape Pop through Final Cut Pro. You can find it under your Transitions as Stupid Raisins Shape Pop.

When you’re ready to add cutting-edge shape shape transitions to your project, just drag the transition between two clips and you’re ready to go. Really, that’s it.
