Animated Character Typography with ProFont:Typeface in FCPX
Write Any Character in FCPX
ProFont Typeface gives users 97 character presets from various categories. All letters of the alphabet in lower and uppercase, numbers ranging from 0 to 9 and a slew of special characters are all available to choose from. ProFont Typeface gives users the ability to create text animations like they’ve never had before.
Very Easy to Use
ProFont: Typeface provides a simple control panel that lets users have all the control they need without any extra complications. This includes placement controls, color changes and animation controls. Users can opt to use the on-screen control to position, scale and rotate characters, or use the controls in the inspector window for mathematically precise alterations.
Change the Speed of Animation
Complete control of animation speed is possible using ProFont Typeface. By default, characters animate in from the start and out at the end of the preset. Switches are included so that users can turn off the animation from the start or at the end separately. Changing the speed of animations is as easy as dragging the slider control to a number ranging from 0 to 100.
Align Text with the Grid Tool
The Grid Tool comes in both title and effect form so users can apply it to individual clips, or place it on the top level of the timeline throughout the project. This convenient tool allows users to easily and effectively align text to a grid so that characters are perfectly spaced and positioned correctly within the scene. The grid color, size, and opacity can be changed and the lines can be offset to meet the needs of any shot.
Reposition all Characters at Once
ProFont: Typeface’s Compound Tool is the perfect tool for repositioning all the characters in a group at once. To use, simply create a compound click with the characters that will be effected and apply the Compound Tool to the Compound Clip. This tool gives users on-screen controls so that they can change the position, scale and rotations of all characters at the same time.
Designed Exclusively for Final Cut Pro X
The title and effect presets in this package are created for use only in Final Cut Pro X. Drag and drop character title presets into the FCPX timeline and use the controls in the inspector window to make alterations. Users can stack characters on top of each other to offset the start times of character animations and use the grid and compound tools to make editing as fluid as possible.
