It shows the when, how, and why of the process.

Izzy Video 289 – 3D Title Trick in Final Cut Pro X

The new 3D title options in Final Cut Pro X are pretty darn cool.

But wouldn’t it be great if you could make other things 3D too?

In this video, I demonstrate a work-around that makes it possible for you to make certain images, icons, and symbols become 3D.

It’s just like 3D text — only not text. It’s little images, icons, etc.

This is some awesome stuff. :)

How to Use Automator to Rename Video Clips – Izzy Video 287

This is the next video in the miniature series on organizing footage.

I hope you find it helpful!
