Final Cut Pro X users can now draw directly on top of footage with ProTelestrator from Pixel Film Studios. A telestrator is a device that allows its operator to draw a freehand sketch over a moving or still video image. Telestrators are often used in sports and weather broadcasts to diagram and analyze sports plays or incoming weather patterns.
After users are done drawing,users can check the "Animate Mode" checkbox and then adjust the frame slider to control the speed of the animation. This can give the illusion that the drawing is being created in real time.
With ProTelestrator, users can now recreate the look of popular sports broadcasts. Editors can rewind a sports play, sketch out how it unfolded and then let it playback.
ProTelestrator was professionally designed by the team at Pixel Film Studios for FCPX. As an FCPX generator, this tool can be dragged-and-dropped onto the timeline and drawn on directly in the FCPX Viewer window. ProTelestrator also contains easy-to-use controls built into the Final Cut Pro X Inspector that allow users to customize their drawing quickly.
