Better Border is mostly the same as the built in Simple Border effect that comes with FCPX, but with added crop controls to ensure the border follows the cropped edge, unlike Apple’s simple border effect which is cropped away by Apple’s crop controls. Use BretFX Better Border’s built in crop controls instead to remedy this issue.

COMPATIBILTY
Tested with Final Cut Pro X 10.3.4

    Have always wanted this feature – saves time round-tripping into Photoshop to crop an image. Fantastic!
