What is this?
I made a couple improvements
How do you install it?
After you’ve downloaded the template, follow these instructions to install.
- Download the file.
- Unzip the file.
- Move “Stupid Raisins” folder to Movies>Motion Templates>Titles>Lower Thirds.
- Restart FCPX and you’re good to go.
If you don’t have any of the folders (Motion Templates, Titles, Lower Thirds), simply create them yourself and then dag and drop the Stupid Raisins folder.
If you had to create folders, select them (including Stupid Raisins) and press Command+I. Under Name and Extension add extension “.localized” and press enter. Restart FCPX and you’re good to go.
How to use it
In FCPX click on the Title browser. Select Lower Thirds and then scroll down to Stupid Raisins. Drag the title onto your clips and then select the title. You’ll have the following options.
Use the drop down to select the network. If you select Custom you can use a custom icon and change the title bar colors. You can turn the build in/out animations on and off with the checkboxes.
Text doesn’t update in FCPX
Sometimes when you change text you might not see the changes. That’s because you’re updating one of the other text boxes and it’s “turned off”. In order to get to your active text box use the arrows in the upper left hand corner of the canvas. Watch this video to see it in action.
Animations speed changes with duration adjustments
Final Cut King key-framed the animations so if you change the title duration the animations will speed up or slow down. I tried to change it using Motion behaviors but couldn’t get it just right. I did however add markers so the build in/out animations timing won’t change if you adjust the title duration.
