The Star generator creates a glowing star shape that contains an alpha channel. The scale, width, angle, epsilon (which fine-tunes the size of the star spikes), and opacity of the spikes can be modified and keyframed, as well as the position, color, and radius of the star.
Adjust this generator using the controls in the Generator Inspector:
Center: Value sliders that set the position of the center of the star. (You can also use the Adjust Item tool to modify this parameter with onscreen controls. For more information, see Modify or animate a generator.)
Color: Color controls that pick the color of the halo around the star. Click the disclosure triangle to display Red, Green, Blue, and Opacity sliders for more precise color selection.
Radius: A slider that sets the radius of the circle at the center of the star. Values range from 0 to 300.
Spike Scale: A slider that sets the size of the star spikes. Values range from 0 to 100.
Spike Angle: A dial that sets the angles of the star spikes.
Spike Opacity: A slider that sets the opacity of the star spikes. Values range from –8 to 0.
Spike Width: A slider that sets the width of the star spikes. Values range from 0 to 50.
Epsilon: A slider that fine-tunes the strength of the star spikes. Values ranges from –2 to 0.
Publish OSC: A checkbox that, when selected, ensures that if this generator is sent to Final Cut Pro X as part of a template, the onscreen controls are accessible in Final Cut Pro. For more information about publishing onscreen controls and other parameters, see Final Cut Pro templates overview.
