Gradient Center Title Bar in Final Cut Pro X - make vertically wider?

I am using the gradient center title bar. Can I make it vertically wider? I see a control to make it wider, but that only works horizontally..

This Title was designed in Motion. The vertical size of the bar is not published as a control to be available in FCPX. You would have to open a copy of the Title in Motion (If you have it) and modify it there.

  • Can't edit title text in Final Cut Pro X

    Okay I'm seriously about ready to pull my hair out. Every time I go to edit text, FCPX crashes. Now I have to close the inspector before editing text for it to not crash...and that works sometimes. But now I have a new problem. After exporting my movie, I noticed I needed to make some adjustments to titles... Tried double clicking the text in the doesn't even let me edit it anymore! Really? Why would you even release this Apple? Final Cut Pro X is clearly not finished. What a joke.

    It seems I have nearly the same problem. The simple fact of selecting the title in the project or in the project library crashes FinalCut Pro.
    I thought it was caused by the accended frensh characters, like for an imported iMovie Project, but this is not the case. Even without accended characters, the crash is systematic.
    Thanks a lot for the idea of closing the inspector! Now I can work with titles (sometimes at all) without crashing
    The good news is: I can edit the title, even when re-opening the project later, if I:
    1. Select the title element with the inspector closed
    2. Open the inspector
    3. Modify some parameters like the colors of the titles.
    - The first time I did it, the inspector opened, empty, on the left side of the screen !?!
    - It works even in the precedent little project wich I encountered the bug
    - I can edit too in the viewer.

    MacBook 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

  • Can you adjust preset title effects on Final Cut Pro X

    Im trying to play with the anchor points on a preset title effect called DRAMATICA.  The lettes LEAVE too quickly and don´t allow enough time to be read.
    Can that be done? Is it possible to adjust the titles setting?  Can the anchor point be adjusted for duration?

    If you mean changing the relative duration of the various phases of the title, you'd have to open a copy in Motion; but be warned that, at least for an inexperienced user of Motion like myself, it seems to be a quite sophisticated title. There are complex behaviors involved, so it is not like some where you'd just publish another parameter and be done with it.

  • Final Cut Pro Only makes 30 second video

    I promise I'm am not normally this challenged. I am a new user of video editing software of any kind. I have made it through to the final step.
    I cannot make a final video any longer than 30 seconds. No matter how long the sequence is, when I export to quick time, windows media or any other format the resulting video is always 30 seconds. I have gone through all of the settings and read everything I can find. Help!

    Limit Capture Now shouldn't have an effect on the length of your renders. As Jerry said, make sure you have no ins and outs marked, make sure you don't have a specific clip in the timeline selected and you should be good to go,
    As for the WMF files, if you are using the demo version of Flip For Mac, then it will only do 30 second exports until you pay for it and register.

  • Title to final cut pro

    how can i make my motion titles for my final cut pro project not jiggle? if i create titles in final cut pro, they also jiggle.

    Depends on what's causing them to "jiggle". Often this is caused by using a font that is too thin or has elements that are too thin. Try not using serif fonts and make sure they are thicker than one pixel...
    Do you have an example you can post?

  • Keyborads for Final Cut Pro

    One of the coolest things I have seen on those is the shuttle control (in place of the arrow keys), but you can just buy one of those separately (USB) for a fraction of the cost. And then you still have the arrow keys. I agree that if you just print out the commands and learn them that is pretty much the same as paying a bunch of money for a keyboard that does the same thing. Pretty unnecessary.

  • How can I move Final Cut Pro folders?

    Hey guys!
    I'm trying to figure out how to move the "Final Cut Backups", "Final Cut Pro", and "Motion Templates" folders out of my Movies folder. I keep a bunch of my own movies in that folder, and having those 3 in there becomes an inconvenience.
    I've tried to move all my Final Cut Pro media over to an external and when I load videos I want to edit from there, Final Cut Pro still makes folders in my Movies folder instead of my external.
    I want Final Cut Pro to set all destinations to my external. Making my external the main place it stores and saves all files/folders.
    Even if there isn't any "Change destination" option within Final Cut Pro, could this be done through Terminal in any way?
    I am currently using Final Cut Pro X (10.1.2)
    Thank you so much!

    You can move them in the Finder. I wouldn't move Motion Templates, however.
    Where FCP stores the other files can be set in the Inspector.

  • Title Font Size in Final Cut Pro 6 for exhibition on movie theater sized screen

    When editing a documentary and creating title cards (that play as part of the movie - text center of screen on black b.g.), lower thirds identifying speakers, and end credits (both single card and scrolling) are there some standard fonts and font sizes people use so the end result will not look too large when projected on a movie screen?
    The titles are all from Final Cut Pro (a few from the Boris plug-in for FCP6) and there are no titles that move or that are created in Motion.
    I will be able to make additional edits with the fonts sized for tv, streaming, DVD distribution etc. if I'm lucky enough to end up needing those as well.

    If the titling is properly composed for the frame size, it will look correct when projected. That is, if it looks font is legible and in decent proportion in your 1080 timeline, it's not important whether the display is 30 inches or 45 feet; the proportion will not change.
    In terms of font selection, medium or bold sans-serif fonts work well on all screens.  "Plain" fonts like Helvetica, Ariel, or Lucinda tend to work better than the more stylized fonts, but if style is part oif your message, be my guest...
    hope this helps

  • How do I center text in Final cut Pro?

    Hi, does anyone know how to directly center text with more than one line of text in Final Cut Pro?
    If I have more than one line it doesn't seem to center properly. I've tried wireframe (which is inaccurate), center values (which doesn't work) and Boris 3D (which does the job but the space between letters isn't accurate so I need to try an alternative method).
    Any ideas?

    In Title 3D you use the Position X/Y button to adjust the height. The spacing between the letters in Title 3D can be adjusted both in tracking and in kerning by placing the cursor between a letter pair. Title 3D is perhaps one of the most accurate and precise text positioning titlers available in any software.

  • HT201109 Final Cut Pro 10.1 crashes with Motion 5.1 custom Scrolling text and Graphics titles

    Dec 29, 2013 1:33 PM 
    found out why Final Cut 10.1 won't load my custom titles without crashing. When scrolling text in Motion 5.1 if you ad a graphic to scroll with the text Final Cut 10.1 will crash. If I remove the graphic in Motion and then load it into Final Cut 10.1 it will work.
    So Graphics and scrolling do not work. The graphics are .jpg, .png, .tiff, .psd. I don't know how to fix it. Hopefully someone out there does.

    Thanks Tom for the advice. I have four external hard disks, all of them formatted with Mac OS Extended Journaled. On all devices (2TB) I have more than half free space. They are connected either with Thunderbolt or USB3 cables. Different manufactures:  LaCie, Toshiba, WD and Samsung. I face the same crash problem if I connect a UBS drive 16GB or a any other device to the USB ports including the Sony Video camera connected with a USB1 cable. Same problem on ALL my computers! To work properly, I have to disconnect all USB devices and work only with internal hard disks. I also tried to format the MacbookPro (erasing the partitions with a new installation) but I have the same problem. I really lost hope...

  • Final cut pro x - Title changes are not saved!

    Dear Sirs,
    I have a big project I am working on in Final cut pro x that contains about 300 subtitles (created with the basic title tool), and now when I make text changes to these titles, quit the program and open the project again those changes are gone....!!! This is a serious problem for me, any help concerning this would be greatly appriciated.
    Thank you,

    You might not have a compatible video card. It needs to be "OpenCL" compatible. What mac are you using, and what video card? This info is available using the "About this Mac" menu item; click "More Info" to get to the video info.

  • How do I preset a title text style in Final Cut Pro X?

    I want to use the same title stye again and again in Final Cut Pro X - font size, style, color. 
    Final Cut Pro is happy to have me "Save a Preset to Library", but then I never see it again.   When I go to the dropdown menu, all I get is Apple's list of truly hideous fonts like 80s, Aqua Fade, Candy, etc.
    I save my favorite style as "Basic" and that does nothing either - as soon as I add a new title and apply the "Basic" setting I get Apple's horrible Gil Sans again.  What's going on?
    Any tips on how to perform what should be a very simple operation?  Have spent more than an hour on this now.

    Well, Tom, I guess I'm just not as fortunate.  Anyone else have any suggestions?

  • All of my titles, themes and generators seem to be completely missing from Final cut pro x. Do you know how to get them back?

    All of my titles, themes and generators seem to be completely missing from Final cut pro x. Do you know how to get them back?

    Do you mean that when you click the title browser, for example, nothing is there?
    Do you at least see several categories listed in the effects browser?
    First make sure that you have nothing typed into the search box (not even spaces).
    If you still see nothing, try this in order:
    1) Window->Revert to Original Layout
    2) Quit FCP X, delete preferences using Preference Manager (a free download from Digital Rebellion)
    3) Download FCS Remover, and use it to completely remove FCP X. This will NOT delete your content, just the application.
    4) Reinstall FCP X from the Mac App Store: log in with the same Apple ID that you used to buy FCP X, click on "Purchases", locate FCP X and click Install.
