Disc Warp

Stretches the image outward around a circular region. As the radius of the warping region increases, the image is warped outward with a greater amount of distortion. The color of the resulting disk is determined by the color value of the pixel where the center is placed.

Adjust this filter using the parameter controls in the Filters Inspector:

  • Center: Sets the position of the center of the disk. You can also drag the Center onscreen control.

  • Radius: Sets the size of the disk. You can also drag the outer circle of the onscreen controls in the Canvas.

  • Crop: Sets whether the filtered layer is sharply cropped at its original boundaries. When this checkbox is deselected, the filter affects the edges of the image.

  • Mix: Sets the percentage of the original image to be blended with the distorted image.

  • Publish OSC: Publishes the filter’s onscreen controls in Final Cut Pro X. For more information on creating content for use in Final Cut Pro, see Final Cut Pro templates overview.
