Applying Outliner Lite
In FCP X, navigate to the effects browser. Drag BretFX Outliner Lite to a video clip or graphic in your timeline. If the clip has transparency (via alpha channel, key, etc.) the outline will follow the perimeter of the alpha channel. For full screen video without transparency, the video will have to be scaled back and/or cropped and placed in a compound clip before applying Outliner Lite to the compound clip. Outliner Lite can be added to an adjustment layer, in which case it will follow the cumulative transparency of all the layers below it. If one of those layers is full screen, and the wish is for outliner to follow the cumulative outline of the transparent layers, then the layers with transparency will need to be compounded (option+G) along with the adjustment layer.
With the layer you applied Outliner Lite to selected in the timeline, open the inspector (if it isn’t already) and you’ll find BretFX Outliner Lite under effects. Outliner Lite has two simple controls for width and color.
Controls the width your outline. The width slider stops at 30. Higher values can be entered, but it’s not recommended because the outline starts to lose sharpness.
Controls the color of your outline.
