Join Lonzell Watson for an in-depth discussion in this video Titling your program, part of Final Cut Express 4 Essential Training.
Final Cut Express has a number of Titling tools that you can use to title your…shows and they can all be found in the Generators menu at the bottom of the Viewer.…Under the Text category, we have a few options to choose from. The Crawl option…is for creating crawling text and you see this is used for weather alerts at…the bottom of the screen and sometimes for breaking news. Lower Thirds are what…you generally see in interviews where the person speaking is being identified…or for the identification of a specific location like in a news report.…
Outline Text gives you several specialized text functions that create static…text with outlines. Scrolling Text is used for creating credit roles like you…see at the end of television programs. The Plain Text option is for making…general full screen text like we are about to make. And the Typewriter option…creates animated text that types on screen one character at a time. We will be…examining how to make Lower Thirds and Scrolling Text in later lessons as well…

Q: After changing the Mac OS X Expose keys to dashes as instructed in the tutorial, the Expose keys -F9, F10, and F11- retain their Expose functions and override the Final Cut keyboard shortcuts. Why have the keys kept their original functions?
A: After setting the Expose Settings to dashes, go into the Mac OS X System Preferences and choose Keyboard. Once there, click on the Keyboard tab, then click to check the box "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys.” This should release F9, F10, and F11 from their Expose functions and allow them to be uses as editing keys in Final Cut.
