Creating Freeze Frame Effects in Final Cut Pro X

This week on MacBreak Studio, I demonstrate a simple example of the “freeze frame” effect and how to accomplish it using Final Cut Pro X.

Good production practices make the post work easier, and today’s example is no exception. The first key factor here is to shoot with a locked-down camera. Doing so avoids the need to track the shot in post. Second is to shoot with a high enough shutter speed that you eliminate motion blur on the object you want to freeze. I usually obey the 180-degree shutter rule – so if I’m shooting at 24 frames per Continue reading “Creating Freeze Frame Effects in Final Cut Pro X”

Hey Everyone,

The last few weeks have driven home how disruptive unforeseen turmoil can be for the industry. While events such as the 2011 Tohoku tsunami and the SARS pandemic have demonstrated threats to business continuity in the past, the swiftness with which COVID-19 has impacted societal and economic norms is one more reminder that almost everyone needs remote access in order to be prepared to work from anywhere, often on short notice.

One of the challenges faced in media is that it’s not that easy to just “take your work with you.” When dealing with large file sizes, highly valuable
