Join Nick Harauz for an in-depth discussion in this video Final Cut Pro text tools, part of Learning Typography for Video Editors.
- [Instructor] So unlike Premiere Pro,…Final Cut does not have a Type tool…where you type directly on a screen.…What you do is you start from a template…and then you alter it from there.…All of the title templates can be found here…under the Titles and Generators sidebar.…And you'll see that under the Titles section…are a series of subcategories that give you…type for all different types and purposes.…Some of my favorite include some of the titles…in the Build In/Build Out category…where you get some automatic character-by-character…animation at the beginning and end of your text.…
Let's actually grab this Continuous text.…I'm gonna bring it into a Final Cut project.…You can just grab this title and drag it…and it's gonna be a connected clip.…But one of my favorite methods,…especially if you want you title to be the exact…same length, say, of your clip here in the timeline,…is to select the clip, press X to mark it.…If you select the title and then press Q,…you'll notice that the title now becomes…the exact same length as the clip…
