For repair work and other sorts of touch-up where you need to be able to remove objects (or even just dead pixels), here's a Clone Effect Template.

File Attachment:

File Name: TKYCloneEffect.zip
File Size: 544 KB


There are controls for:

- Selecting the clone shape (circle or square);
- Adjusting the shape position, size, aspect ratio, rotation and shear, as well as feather and fall-off;
- adjusting the clone offset, and the source scale and rotation;
- adjusting the gamma and color balance of the cloned area to fine tune the match.

The default settings have a red highlighted area for the clone shape which can be toggled on and off. Make sure it's toggled off for final output!

The left hand set of onscreen controls affects the clone source offset and rotation.

The right hand controls (offset from the clone area centre to make it easier to see what's going on) affect the position (inner ring), rotation (rotation handle) and aspect ratio (outer ring) of the clone shape.

Unzip the file and put the entire folder into your User/Movies/Motion Templates/Effects folder, preferably in new folder that makes it easier to find from the Effects menu inside FCPX.

was wondering if you have thought about a frame offset for this tool it would make it much more useful even some sort of averaging

not quite sure how its done in Motion

only way I could think was line up clone layers and then rig them on off and link to a slider for frame offset, not sure if this could cause the plugin to be slow though as many copies

Good idea and I had wanted to implement but you can't safely get retiming effects out of Motion 5 as Apple explain.

The way I would go about this is to give an option on the effect to "show through" to a layer beneath so that you could offset a duplicate of your clip by however many frames you wanted and achieve the effect that way.

It's a bit clunky but it would do the job quite well ...

Thanks for creating this! I was ready to pull my hair out trying to round trip a clip into motion and back to cover a lightswitch!
