Thumbnail image for video_generators_menu.gifYou can change the Matte Color Video Generator in Final Cut Pro. For a long time I would open the Matte Color, and then click the Controls tab to change the matte to the color I wanted, which was almost always white. After a hundred or so times doing this I finally had the bright idea to see if I could change the default.
To change the default you only need to change the Matte Color in the Video Generators folder within the Effects tab. Once you make the change here every time you bring it up through the Video Generators menu (the "A" button) in the viewer it will display your new default.

To make the change load the Color generator into the viewer, select the Controls tab, and click on the color indicator, change the color to what you desire, and click OK.
