Final Cut: My free Repeat filter plugin

This filter is much simpler than recent ones. It scales down the clip it is applied to and adds copies around the edge of the clip.

You have the option to flip the copies horizontally and or vertically, crop the clip and add space between copies:

    I use the 4D Repeat for a film roll that goes off vertical, starting say 2 vertical frames up and then stabilizing on the centre frame after two seconds.

    This is done by adding a V offset of -2000 at frame zero and a V offset of 0
    for frame zero.

    However, to sell the effect, I think it would be great if CENTER control allowed to
    apply a ease curve to its attributes.

    That way the film would stabilize on the “sprockets” with an ease after
    two seconds.

    That should read V offset of 0 at frame 60. my bad
