Motion4: September 2009 Archives

With the introduction of Final Cut Studio 3.0, Apple no longer includes the LiveType application as part of the Final Cut Studio bundle.  I'm guessing this is because many of the features in LiveType can now be accomplished using Apple Motion 4.0. Since LiveType is no longer part of the Final Cut Studio bundle, I thought I'd share a quick exercise that I would normally teach in LiveType.  For you LiveType fans, don't worry, upgrading to Final Cut Studio 3.0 won't erase your old LiveType application.

Here is a quick tutorial on implementing using the 'Nitro' LiveFont to make a text object explode onto the screen one character at a time.

Using Live Fonts in Motion or LiveType is a popular way to create professional titles with Final Cut Studio. If you have a particular Live Font you like to use often, you can save it as a Template in Motion, and it will appear in Final Cut Pro as a Master Template.

Final Cut Studio ships with a software product called Motion.  Within Motion, you can create motion graphic templates.  These templates show up automatically in the Generator menu under the Master Templates menu category.  Each template contains a different design that you can alter in terms of changing the text, text size, text position, and video content.
