good work.;) thanks for sharing!

I´ve tried it yesterday, with perfect results.

I loved the possibility to play with the height, and the angle of the cam.
real nice.
It only needs a lot of time for rendering, or a better mac than mine..:(


At the Idustrial Revolution page i´ve found the notice:
"not for FCPX" ??? something changed meanwhile?

But you´ve a done a great job!!
thanks a lot!;)

Coverflux won't work in FCPX yet as there isn't a limit on how many images it will display and you would have to have a dropzone for each as file choosers are not supported.

Hi Peter,

my first post here and starting with 'issues':
COVERFLOW is awesome - aside, it makes my videos in the dropzone(s) square.

I tried opening your generator in Motion5 - the Drop Zone placeholder.tiff is square (600x600), but adding a Drop Zone in any other Motion5 project makes it 16:9 (I'm working in 1280x720).

The complexity of your generator doesn't allow me to fix the aspect ratio my own.

Where is the 'knob' I have to turn to make the dropzone/the dropped pictures, videos 16:9?

Thanks in advance! I'm a busy reader here for about a year ... happy to be part of the community! (maybe some others in the hobbyist league know my contributions at Apple Support etc ...)

Are you using the file chooser to load images? Aspect ratio isn't an issue

ok, perhaps a pic is more worth than a 1000 pidgin words ... ;)

in attached screenshot you see:
• my sources are all 16:9 (720p)
• the placeholder of the plugin appears square
• using the file chooser shows 16;9 source but 'clipped' drop zone

I tried various sources, tried drag'n drop or the file chooser, tried various Project setting (25, 30, 1080, 720) ... no luck.

opening your plug-in in Motion (2nd attachment) you notice: 'your' dropzones are square.

but..
when I add a 9th drop zone my own (red oval) to your plugin, it is 16:9!! !!

... I assume, there's something kaputt ... :lol:

=edit= misnamed the second attachment - cover- not screenflow ...

Karsten, you've made an error that many others have made. Peter is NOT the author of that effect. As he wrote in the original post "FxMahoney has posted...".

Perhaps you should ask these questions of the author, Fox Mahoney. I don't know if he is a member here. Check out his youtube channel at www.youtube.com/fxmah or check out his web page at sight-creations.com/

ooops! indeed!!
thanks, marchyman, for correcting me - ..... and I did wonder, how many plugins Peter did produce over the last months... ;)

I wrote fox_m an email, hopefully he finds the time to dig into my problem.

greetings from rainy Munich/Germany!

based upon marchyman's recommendation, I contacted fox - and within hours, he send me a vers 1a of his plugin which now respects my aspect ratio.

thanks to everyone, esp. fox for his super-fast solution!
