The Flop Filter is a neat little feature you can use in Final Cut Pro.  It allows you to "flop" a clip vertically, horizontally, or even both.  It flops the image so the contents are reversed left to right.  A word of caution though, using the flop filter doesn't always work out the way you want it to, especially if there is writing involved, such as a sign in the background, or a logo on a T-shirt.  Flopping an image like that would be a huge blunder because the words would appear backward.  So be careful what you are flopping!

To "flop" a shot it's as easy as choosing the Flop Filter from the Effects menu and applying it to a clip.  The path is Effects > Video Filters > Perspective > Flop

flop2.gifSometimes it is difficult to pull off a Flop shot just because people sometimes look strange.  Cutting back and forth between flopped shots and normal shots of the same subject might not work.  But it's fun to play around with it, cause you never know what cool kind of an effect you might come up with.  Personally I like using it sometimes in a montage of stills.  So try it out and have fun flopping!
