To give your mattes more definition, you can add an outline in LiveType after adding a movie or image to your matte. In the Matte category of the attributes tab you can composite a movie or image into your whatever you have highlighted in the timeline. A matte in LiveType can be any glyph, graphic, or object. Many editors don't realize that you can place an item into your LiveType project, and matte to it. The object you place into your LiveType project needs to be on an alpha channel to be able to matte to it's shape. Keeping in mind if there is no alpha channel showing thru the object, it will be one solid matte.

To achieve the result of the above:

First: From the file menu place your graphic into your LiveType project.

Second: From the Attributes tab select the Matte option and choose Movie or Image in the Matte to pull down menu.

Third: From the Style tab select the Outline category, activate the checkbox, and select the color and weight you want the outline to be.

*You could also add a glow, drop shadow, or extrusion, if you desire.

Fourth: Save your LiveType project, and import it into Final Cut Pro.
