SUGARfx Transient is a a set of dynamic transitions hand-crafted by professionals, bringing exciting motion to any timeline in FCPX.

Transient includes 45 customizable transitions ready to be placed in your timeline and use them right out of the box or customize them as much as you want, to meet your creative needs.

Transient can be found in the Transitions browser, under the SUGARfx Transient category.


The Transient interface

All the transitions can be used without customization for a quick and easy use of the transition element. They have been designed to look their best when applied to your timeline.

However, you may want to take a moment to customize the transition, and create a unique look, color palette and behavior to increase the production value of your project.

Some of the transitions may have different animation styles and other features, all available within the Inspector window.


The following is a list of parameters that you may encounter in the transition element that you place in your editing timeline.

Please keep in mind that every parameter is usually found under its own group label, like Background or Shadow, therefore a Color parameter found under the Background group refers to the color of the background, and the Color parameter found under the Shadow group refers to the color of the shadow.

Note: Not all of the parameters shown here are available on every transition.
