Sofia - Ghost Effect in Final Cut Pro X

How it is done?
She was standing in front of a green screen, I used a black/white color effect. For the glitch aspect I used a plugin called mGlitch from MotionVFX;

I highly recommend any of the MotionVFX plugins for FCP X. In my opinion they are the best plugins for Final Cut Pro X!

Finally figured out how to mirror Android on my Mac

I just want to update this post/video and say that AirDroid will not work with Android 4.3 as far as using the Screenshot aspect. The app still works but not the mirroring on 4.3.

I have been using Android solely for 3 months now, since the end of January and the one thing I couldn't figure out was how to mirror my screen on my iMac like I can with my iPad and AirPlay. AirDroid is an app I have been using since the beginning but didn't realize it worked as a mirroring app. It does, someone commented on a post on Google+ about this yesterday. Now I can finally do Android App reviews. Yay for me.

Intro Designer for iOS

Intro Designer is a universal iOS application developed for the iPad, iPad mini, iPhone, and iPod Touch. Intro Designer is available in the iOS App Store for only $2.99.

Intro Designer is an application that will allow you create video intros on your iOS device that can be exported to your camera roll and then opened in another application like iMovie or Pinnacle Studio so that you can add an intro to a video that you might be editing for upload to a service like YouTube or Vimeo. Most of the templates that are offered are quite generic and you cannot create you own template but you can add your own personal text and messages to your intro video. You could also use Intro Designer to create an "outro" for you video with your website domain or asking your viewers to subscribe to your YouTube channel, etc.

Intro Designer offers 13 different categories to choose from. In each of these categories you will have different themes to choose from to download to your iPad. Some of the themes might be in more than one category though. All of the themes are different lengths in time, some are 10 seconds long others might be as long as 30 seconds. Each category has a different number of themes to choose from, one category may only have 2 themes while another may have up to 6. The categories are as follows.


  • Celebrate
  • Family
  • Simple
  • Sports
  • Abstract
  • Music
  • Love
  • Birthday
  • Holiday
  • Nature
  • Cinematic
  • Shows
  • Travel

Be aware that downloading these themes to your iOS will use up your storage space on your device. Then remember when you export your footage to your camera roll you will now have this video in 2 places on your device using twice the storage. If you import that footage into another application that same footage will then be in 3 spots on your device using 3x the storage. If you do not have a lot of storage space you can delete your footage from the Intro Designer application after you have exported to help save storage space!
Intro Designer is a really fun application and if you do not own any motion creating software on your computer and you want to add some professionalism to your videos then check out Intro Designer.
