Quick Overview

Composite modes have been hidden in Final Cut for a long, long time. But while they can create some amazing effects, they are still poorly understood. Which is a shame, because you can create some very interesting effects using composite modes; effects that you just can not achieve using filters alone.



Manufacturer Part Number: LJ-41

Best of all, composite modes are easy to apply and require zero adjustment. If you are looking for cool looks to do what you just can't do any other way, this session is for you!

This tutorial explains what composite modes are and how to use them to create a variety of effects. In fact, Larry provides step-by-step instructions on how to create a dozen different effects using tools that you already have installed on your system!
