I've googled, and searched the forums. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Multi Track Video
What exactly are you looking to do?
This just looks like a bunch of video tracks layered, cropped, and positioned to make a grid.
Well that's what I want to do and I don't know how to do it.
Any compositing program will do this. Motion and After Effects are two big ones. You can also do this in Final Cut Pro, though it's more clunky. You take your clip, cut it into pieces, overlay them, then shrink each piece down and make a grid.
I'm almost sure there is a template in Motion you can work with and adapt to something like that. Not 100% sure that's where I've seen it though (I'm cut off from my Mac a couple of days)... And I believe Boris has a plugin that might work...? You pro's, am I close?
Edit: that plugin would be for FCP7 BTW.
Not a template, but replicators. Check this one out:
there is an effect in final cut pro for this under effects, tiling
Good tutorial for beginners. Painful to watch as a die hard AE user This is easy in any NLE if you want to match the youtube video. But a decent Motion Design app is best for above and beyond the full frame look.
I don't think that Motion was ever developed as an AE killer. IMHO two different beasts with different target groups.
For my job (agricultural documentation and the odd concert or wedding) Motion is absolutely sufficient - and, for me, easier to use. The only thing I'm really envious of is AE's Roto Brush.
Hey no worries wasnt trying to match the two. Just little nuances and steps in the old Motion. I want to try this tutorial on the new Motion and see if its still the same. Only purchased it to learn how to make title templates for a class Im teaching. So far a great deal at $49. Ive drilled it in my students head (teach a night class) that Motion is just right for titling and basic compositing.
There are some new tools and the GUI looks different, but for the rest it still works the same. You CAN even import old projects into the new version.
What I like are the new rigging and publishing features. You can build effects, generators, wipes et al as templates in Motion that will show up automatically in FCP X. Motion is not built into FCP anymore. It is rather the other way around, FCP builds up on Motion.
There's more on this in this video:
The tiling filter in FCP will take a single image and tile it but in the OP's video each tile is a different video.
