Final Cut Pro X: Linear Scale Keyframes
I am trying a little experiment in order to move away from ScreenFlow and Camtasia. Neither app delivers what I need for my screencasting. It’s frustrating. These programs have become mere capturing apps over the years. I could use QuickTime Player to capture the screen to get the same results.
What’s frustrating in Final Cut Pro X though, you can’t tell every keyframe animation whether you want it to be linear or logarithmic or S-Curve. You have control over the move keyframes by right-clicking on the Viewer, but not for scale. Scale is always eased-in and eased-out.
There’s a little trick through:
"If you using a scale function as well you’ll get drift because the position and scale work very differently. Try animating the middle Crop function if you want to scale and position."
Instead of animating scale keyframes. Set Crop to Crop (instead of Trim) and animate the left/right/top/bottom parameters. Hold down ⇧ when cropping in the Viewer to “scale” proportionally.
