Recreate the famous TV show opener. Sometimes imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Parks and Re-Creation is a fast paced template for Motion or FCP X that pays homage to the original full length television intro, making it great for a humorous corporate opener. It features 32 drop zones and 9 changeable texts. The text background color can be universally changed as well. It can be installed in Motion or FCP X. Both versions are identical in look and function.

    Great plugin. Easy to use and edit. A little tough to get the right frames on longer clips, but it exceeds what you typically see in a plugin at this price.

      Thank you! As to the drop zones, this is unfortunately a limitation (or long standing bug) with FCP X. Wherever you click in the video you wish to use syncs up with the start of the template, not the drop zone itself. The established workaround, especially for Templates like this with multiple drop zones, is to place the clip in the timeline above the drop zone, then add a slug or solid in front of it all the way back to the start of the template, compound the clip and slug together, and then use the compound as the source for the drop zone. Check out this article and video from my friend Deyson of Motion Master Templates for more info-

    Hi Bret, I downloaded this plugin today and it seems to work fine but I don’t any option to scale your source image/video. I was trying to add a png Logo to the first source clip and it was scaled way out of frame when I played my timeline, even after I made the png into a compound clip and scaled it down almost 50%. Do you have any workarounds for this? I really like the idea behind this plugin and think I could utilize it in future projects. Thanks!

      Hi Tim, in the inspector in FCP X there are 32 drop zones. Each has it’s own pan and scale control. As well, as with all drop zones in FCP X, you can double click on the drop zone in the canvas and you’ll see an outline of the boundary of the clip. From there you can drag a corner to scale, or click within the box to pan.
