Final Cut Pro 6 plug-in question

I am doing some keying with a virtual set for my job. My boss is laying in the talent onto the background, and sending me the QuickTime movies. The background has a virtual monitor, which isn't perfectly straight on, ie, it's angled. I can put a piece of video or a logo on the timeline on a video track below the QT movie, but manipulating the logo or video is tough to get right.

I read on a website about a "Corner Pin third party plug-in for FCP" so one can more easily manipulate video, to "angle" it on a virtual TV monitor. Do you know anything about such a plug-in, and where I could find it?

Thanks,

Heath

I did, but found mostly workflows and no real mentions. Do you have a specific recommendation for Final Cut Pro 6.0.x?

Thanks!

I found one from Red Giant, which is cool, but it's part of a bundle. Any other recommendations?

Thanks again,

Heath

If Boris CC has as tutorial like www.borisfx.com/images/CornerPinTutorial.pdf
this means that BCC offers such a plug in. therefore go to Boris FX: Video Effects Plugins and Filters and look further in their products website.
Same applies to adobe after effects, red giant (warp), apple motion...

Don't tell your lady you'd look for a corner pin... that a layman's language for the nearest Pub ;-)


Hope this helps P.

Have you had no luck simply using FCP's built in Distort tool (D) for corner pinning? Or is the background moving and so you want a more dynamic corner pin? Have you looked a using Motion's built in capabilities for match move and corer pinning in that regard? If you are really particularly keen to stay in FCP then you could take a look at Lyric's Corner Pin plug (part of its Motion Tracking bundle) Lyric 4-Point Pin

It's become a pain-in-the-neck doing it with Apple's distort tool. I just want an easier solution. Thanks for the tips!
