Step 1 - Creating a Chat Bubble

Now let’s set up the first text message. Go to the FCPX titles library and locate the ProMessage presets. Drag a Chat Bubble presets below the background layer in the timeline, and set it the desired length Select the Chat Bubble layer and go to the FCPX Inspector. Set the Time and Date. Then fill out your text message. Now, use the “Animation Speed” slider to control how fast you want the bubble to grow in. Use the Chat Bubble controls to adjust the size and border of the bubble. Next, go to FCPX media library and select an image to use as the sender’s avatar. Drag the image into the timeline beneath the title layer and make it the same length. Move the playhead to the first frame of the title layer and select it in the timeline. Click on the drop zone placeholder in the Inspector. Then select the image as close to the beginning as possible, and click the blue "Apply Clip" button in the FCPX Viewer window. Once the Avatar is in the Drop Zone, you can discard the image by deleting or disabling it in the timeline by pressing “V” on your keyboard.

Step 2 - Creating Picture Bubbles

Now, let’s repeat this step with a Picture Bubble. Drag a Picture Bubble preset onto the timeline above the text message layer. Make it the same length. Set up the Date, Border and Avatar just as we did with the chat bubble. Uncheck the “Flip” to make the message come from the other side of the screen. Go to FCPX media library and select a video clip to place in the message. Drag the clip into the timeline beneath the title layer and make it the same length. Once everything is lined up perfectly, you need to compound the video clip “by-itself”. This is a strange but necessary step since the 10.6 update to FCPX. Now apply the video to Drop Zone just as we did the avatar image. It is extremely important to follow these steps perfectly or video clips will freeze-up in the during playback. Once the Compound Clip is in its designated Drop Zones, you can disable it in the timeline by pressing “V” on your keyboard.

Additional Information

Now, for some Additional Information. If you would like your dialogue to placed on top of footage instead of a solid color, you will need to compound your chat layers first. Select everything you stacked in the timeline, then hold control and click on one of the titles. Now select New Compound Clip in the pop-up. Next, find the clip or image you wish to use as the background from the FCPX media library. When you find the clip you want… drag it onto the timeline under the compound clip.
