Credit Scroll - Title Effect - Cannot Adjust Border - Text Cut Off

QUESTION:
How can I insert 2 - 3 paragraphs into the credit scroll text effect, format it so the sides of it are not cut off, and prevent Final Cut Pro from reverting back to the default text that comes with the video effect?
SUMMARY:
I am trying, in vain, to copy and paste 2 - 3 paragraphs that I want to scroll across the page as if they were credits. Furthemore, I am trying to justify the whole thing to the left. The left and right edges of the paragraphs are cut off when I render the video using compressor. There is some kind of white box that holds the text. It appears to be the boundary of the text effect.The text bumps up against the boundary, but I cannot easily tell the text to give itself some space between it and the white boundary. If I double click the text effect I bring up a few difficult-to-use formatting tools. There are little white circles and triangles that appear to represent left tab, center tab, and right tab. Everything I do with these circles and triangles seems to have no impact or screws it up. To further complicate matters it seems when anytime I interact with this rudimentary formatting tool set I cause the entire text effect to default to its original form. I have to quit out of Final Cut Pro and reopen it and repeat the process by repasting the text.

I gave up and just made an image in photoshop. I then keyframed the image to scroll across as the credit scroll effect should have done.

  • Gallery title text cut off and cover image not updating

    Hello,
    I've been struggling with this for a couple of weeks now, and it's driving me mad. I've been making a book in iBook Author on my iMac (10.10.2). When I preview it in iBooks on the mac it all looks fine, but when I send it to my iPad2 (iOS 8.2), which I do via dropbox, the front cover image reverts to the default for the template I choose, and gallery and interactive widget title text gets cut off (see attached pic) regardless of the size I make it, or the indent I specify.
    I've tried deleting the book several times, restarted the iPad, and whatever I do it still appears the same.
    I'd be grateful for any suggestions.
    Cheers,
    Kev.

    Hi Christine,
    When you say " It's not there when viewed outside of Cp/swf. Using v5.5.l", does that mean this problem only occurs in a specific output?
    Try this -- Go to preferences-- SWF Size and Quality and under customer, uncheck Advance Project Compression, republish the course and check the results.
    Thanks,

  • How do you find missing titles, effects, and generators in final cut pro x?

    Actually, that's only one of two questions...
    ONE
    When I attempt to export a movie, uncompressed, not through Compressor and not sharing to an Apple device, I get an error saying my Project has "missing or offline titles, effects, or generators."
    There is a little yellow warning triangle next to the project name.
    But there are no little yellow warning triangles next to anything in my libraries, and everything plays through in the Timeline.
    Before exporting, how can I identify the supposedly missing elements???
    TWO
    After attempting to export the same movie via the Share item to an iiPhone, i received a Quicktime Error: -50.
    Interpretation, please?

    I recently added a new plugin (mObject) and was experimenting with it. I decided to create a "temporary" library on my root drive since it's the fastest in my setup. I prefer to have major files like the library at the top level of my drives, and for the internal drive, that's outside my User folder. That's when all the trouble started.  I would manually start a render and FCPX would not stop... would not completely render the clip... I would get "dashed" orange render lines over the clip. The only way to stop the rendering was to add something new to the storyline (that includes going into background tasks and trying to stop or pause the rendering from there!)  Once I moved the library back into my user folder (and inside Movies), all the rendering problems stopped.
    The only connection I can make is that FCPX is getting hung up on user permissions and the "current user". A lot of these issues started when I upgraded to a new iMac and restored all my old software (from the previous iMac) from Time Machine. It made me alter my user name for the new machine and I had some segments on this new machine with the older user permissions which I had to manually change to the new username in many cases.
    If you have strict (user only) permissions on your RAID, try loosening them or make sure that you add your username to the list with read/write permissions. (? perhaps.)

  • Menu page image and text cut off on burned DVD

    I burned a DVD using the travel theme. The project looks fine on my Intel iMac, but when I put the disc into my home DVD player, the menu page, which is not in letterbox format like the rest of the project, has the outer edges cut off and the text and images don't fit the television screen. The rest of the disc looks fine. Any suggestions as to why this happened?
    Thanks!

    Hi DrumRunner:
    iDVD: How to Determine TV Safe Area
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=50151
    iDVD: Creating widescreen DVDs for standard size televisions
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=303030
    Then there is:
    Old Toad's recipe for:
    Masking Movies to the TV Safe Area for iDVD
    The mask should be 640 x 480 pixels and the movie 514 x 386 (I arrived at this figure by making a snapshot of the TV save area of an iDVD project with Snapz). You can set this size after you’ve joined it with the mask movie with Quicktime Player Pro.
    Import the black mask jpg file into iMovie and and export it as a .mov file at the same length as your movie (there may be a way to not have to create a specific length mask for each movie but I haven't found it. If the times do not match the movie file will be synced to the length of the mask movie).
    Open the mask movie in QT Player Pro and then open your regular movie and make it the front window of the two. Now you'll need to run a QT Player AppleScript titled "Merge Movie 1 into Movie 2". You can get it from this Apple site: Quicktime Player Scripts.
    Then run the script. You can then run the merged movie to check it out. Your movie will be located in the upper lefthand corner of the window when played.
    When you open the Movie Properties window from the Window menu for the combined file you’ll see the following:
    Video Track 1: the black mask
    Video Track 2 : your movie file
    Tween track: Have no idea what this is.
    Sound track: self explanaotry
    Black mask.
    To set the size of your movie to the correct size select it in the Properties window and click on Visual Settings pane. Then enter 514 in the first field and hit enter. With the Preserve Aspect Ration box checked the other size will automatically be set.
    To center the video track in the center of the mask select the Video Track 2 item and plug in a offset of about: 60 & 40. You'll probably have to play with that to fine tune the centering. Doing the math and subtracting the movie dimensions from the mask dimensions and dividing by two just didn't get it perfectly centered. I'm sure I'm missing something here.
    Now save as a new self contained movie after checking the High Quality box at the bottom right.
    You can not import it into iDVD for preview and burning. One drawback is that you can't invoke the TV save area for a movie in iDVD to check it out. But you can mark it on the monitor screen while viewing a menu or slideshow and then play the movie to see how close you came.
    Since I made this workflow I've found that iDVD NTSC likes 720 x 540 pixels for standard video in NTSC format so you might want to make the black mask that size and adjust the video accordingly. As I said it takes some fiddling.
    Does that help?

  • Calendar (iCal) bottom of text cut off

    Hi all. Just recently, the top of all event title text in Calendar is cut off. And the words up on top has shifted up, I believe it used to be centered in its boxes.  I'm referring to what I see on the screen of my MacBook Pro Retina, NOT in printed documents. Here's a sample. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Bob,
    Have you attempted to eliminate duplicates using Font Book?
    Do you have Lucida Grande enabled? If not, it should be.

  • My Oracle Support documents print with text cut off on the right margin

    Just a question to check if more people have this issue. When I try to print a document from the knowledge base on My Oracle Support (MOS) it always prints with a lot of text being cut off on the right margin of the page. I tried this with different workstations, OS'es (XP Pro, W7), browsers (IE6, IE8), printers, etc. but it's always the same result. My only workaround is to copy all text and paste it into a text editor. I've logged a service request for this, but Oracle doesn't really seem to care about it and after pointing me to setting margins in Microsoft Publisher (???) and an article on how to export tables on MOS, they pointed to the HTML version of MOS (which has exactly the same issue by the way) and our local IS department for printing preferences. Apparently they cannot replicate this on their workstations, whereas I can replicate at will on a load of different workstations. I know that it's best not to print on paper and read on the screen, but even printing to a PDF writer will cut off text. Does anyone have the same issue with printing documents from MOS?

  • Spry menu link text cut off in IE8

    I have built a website in Dreamweaver using a horizontal spry menu bar. The site works everywhere when I tested it in all browsers on several different computers. However, when someone else checked it on their computer, the text on the links is cut off. Like where the link says Neurosurgery, it bumps up against the edge of that link and cuts off half of the word. The shorter text links aren't cut off, but they aren't centered. They are using IE 8, which I checked it on and it worked fine on my computer. Turns out his computer isn't the only one doing this, but I can't seem to replicate the problem on my computer even though we are using the same browser. I have had him clear his cache and it hasn't helped. The site is kyneurosurgery.com. I included a photo of what the text is doing on the other computer. I'm not sure how to even begin trying to fix the problem since I can't see it on my computer.

    This is a user-to-user forum. Unless you see EMPLOYEE under a screen name, you should assume the poster is an upaid volunteer. Everyone's time is valuable, including yours. The following tips will help you get answers more quickly:
    DO
    Check the Dreamweaver FAQ. The answer to your question might already be there.
    Give your post a meaningful subject line, indicating of the nature of the problem.
    Give sufficient details (such as operating system, browser, hardware platform, and other relevant information) for others to understand the nature of the problem, but don't go overboard. Short, focused questions tend to get answered more quickly.
    If your problem concerns a web page that doesn't display as expected, upload the page to a public website and give the URL. But don't post links to anything you don't want indexed by a search engine. Create a test folder on the site, and remove the page when the problem has been solved.
    Give details of any error messages.
    Say briefly what you have done to try to solve the problem yourself.
    If your question involves a database or server-side technology, such as PHP, ColdFusion, or ASP, say which one, and include it in the subject line.
    DON'T

  • IPhone e-Mail bug: Text cut off below a picture

    Hi Guys,
    Just discovered a very annoying bug in iPhone's mail client: If you are creating a new e-mail and paste a picture into it, the text below the picture will be cut off completely. So if you have a mail: "text before [PICTURE] text after" then it will only send: "test before [PICTURE]" and the "text after" will be dissapeared to the thin air.
    This is rather annoying and I would consider it as a serious bug.

    Hi 1980LND,
    Thanks for your help, I am not convienced if backup and restore would help. In the meanwhile I have found few discussions about this from 2010 -- Apple blames Microsoft Outlook protocol for this, but in my opinion this is wrong. If that is a known bug Apple should really warn their customers about losing data if they try to do that. Or just fix it even if Microsoft broke some RFCs. But yeah, with a message box with the warning "Due to a bug in Outlook protocol you are going to lose your text below the picture. Do you really want to continoue and lose the text below your picture? [I am Dumb Yes] [God No!]" would be sufficient, just do not let me hang and wonder where my text evaporated.
    Thanks again

  • Bottom half of text cut off

    My printer: Photosmart C6280 All-in-one. The printer connects to my wireless router via Ethernet cable. Two computers use this printer on a wireless home network. The problem has occurred with both computers. Both computers (an HP desktop and a Gateway laptop) run Windows Vista Home Premium. The problem I describe occurs when printing text from Microsoft Word 2007.
    From time to time, the last line of text in a document or a label comes out with the lower half of the entire bottom line cut off. The odd thing is that sometimes (but not always), I can resend the print job and get good results. For example, on one occasion after encountering this problem two consecutive times with a particular document, I re-sent the print job and used the back side of a used sheet. It printed correctly, so I put a new sheet of paper into the tray and tried a fourth time. This time, I got the same unacceptable result! Tried a fifth time and got a good print.
    One important point: The problem has never once occurred when I print photos. The problem seems to occur only when printing text.

    We were also having this problem but after researching around on the net and finding some other people with the same issue, we found the following fix worked (based on a Windows 7/Vista Machine):
    Click Start > Devices and Printers
    Right click 'HP Photosmart C7200 series' and click Printer Properties
    Click the Ports tab
    Uncheck Enable Bidirectional Support
    For XP users, you can get to the same thing by finding your printer in the "Printers" area of Control Panel. Following this, opening the properties for your printer from there either by right clicking directly on the printer, or by double clicking the printer and then in that window selecting Printer > Properties.
    We found that the above worked for us so I hope it works for some of you too.

  • Texts cuts off when I open a pdf document

    I bought an ebook and whenever I open it in Adobe Reader the text on the right side is partially cut off.  I thought it was a page size thing, but that didn't work at all.  I've opened it in other formats so I know nothing is wrong with the file.  I just find it weird as I've never had this issue with Adobe and can't figure out what to do. 

    Yeah.  I thought it was because the zoom was so high.  It was at like 300% but when i zoomed out to 100 the document itself just shrank so it was a page in the middle of a grey background, but the text was totally uneffected.

  • Title on spine of hardcover book cut off

    Hi!
    I've been ordering books via iPhoto for many years and was shocked at the latest batch I received this week.
    I had chosen to do a hardcover book with wrap around cover.  The title on the spine was cut off, featuring only part of it which was odd and looks strange.  It should match what is on the front cover.  
    As usual, I did a preview before ordering it.  The spine was not visible in the preview and I had no way of actually making any changes to it since
    I can't see it in iPhoto.
    These books are Christmas gifts for my family and I'm horrified that it was printed incorrectly. 
    I'm hard of hearing and can't use the phone - I have not been able to contact Apple since they only list phone numbers - does anyone know how to connect with them directly via email?  Help!
    Here's an attachment that shows the problem.
    > Mac OS X (ver. 10.6.8) iPhoto 11 - ver. 9.1.3 (607)

    The group you want to get in contact with is called Print Products, they are part of the Apple Online Store. You are correct, they do not have an email contact, only support via phone. I did see on the Apple "contact us" page a support number for hearing and visually impared, says they have advisors trained in accesibilty services, they may be able to help. the number is 877-204-3930.

  • Icon Text Cutting Off

    I have just reinstalled tiger on my laptop and the icons sometimes act strangely in that the icons with a single line of text beneath, usually appear normal, though sometimes the bottom of the text is cut off. When I select the icons, and the coloured background that indicates that it is selected appears behind the text, the bottom of the coloured background/shape is also cut off. On the icons (folders,files) that have two lines of text, I can sometimes see the tops of some of the bottom line letters poking up through the cut off line, again when selected the background is also cut off. Any help would be much appreciated,
    Thanks.

    I had a file appear in my root directory as a result of using quake 3 arena 1.32 (or according to various posts in google groups in any case), which I then made invisible again so as to avoid accidentally damaging or deleting it. The file was "botlib.log" which I was informed of as an "empty log file" by the mac os x console utility. Perhaps this is connected to the cutting off problem?

  • Text cutting off when converting to EPUB from InDesign

    Hi there,
    The text of one paragraph style is being cut in half when the file is exported to EPUB from CS6.  The problem is coming through in more than one e-reader.  We tried solving the problem by editing the CSS, but this removed the font in one e-reader and made no change in another.
    Is there a way this problem can be fixed in InDesign, maybe some change to the paragraph style?
    Thanks!

    Figured out the problem - there was just an issue witht he line spacing of that paragraph style.
