Final Cut Pro X: Lesson Three Working With Text

In this lesson you’ll learn how to work with text in Final Cut Pro, including how to save a set of text attributes for later use. This lesson builds on the last lesson, so you must have at least two bumpers completed before you begin this lesson.

After you watch this lesson, please add the text “Coyote Digital Media” to the end of your two bumpers.  The text should be on screen for at least three seconds. You should place the text in an area where it makes the most sense. Also, you must make NEW bumpers for this assignment.  You may NOT use the ones created for the last assignment.

When you begin this assignment, create a new EVENT and call it TEXT_Bumpers, and label the projects (FIRST_NAME)_TEXT_BUMPER_1

Please check Google Classroom BEFORE you turn in these videos, as the assignment requirements are listed there.

NOTE:  For this assignment and all future assignments using music, you will be required to  put a music attribution in the corner of the video, stating  the name of the song, the artist’s name, and where the song is from (see illustration below). This should be on screen for the first four seconds of the video.
