Alpha Pop Help

Written by Published in User Guide

Alpha Pop is a collection of hand animated fonts. In a matter of seconds you can add custom animated letters, numbers and punctuation marks to your video.

What’s an animated font?

Each letter, number and punctuation mark is customized by hand with an animation unique to its shape. Animated font is different from typical FCPX titles because it’s made with masks, shapes, lines and effects. That means that you can’t just double click a text box and change the text.
