XEffects Messages for Final Cut Pro X (FCPX)




XEffects Messages are a set of professionally designed templates that emulate an onscreen conversation via SMS, iMessage, Facebook and WhatsApp.

All elements animate automatically. The push up is directly linked to the adjustable height of the message. Overlays for top and bottom status & icon sets are included.

Pre-built colour options are included, along with all of the Google Materials palette. All text, boxes and background can be custom coloured.
