Creating 3D titles for Final Cut Pro or Avid Studio

If you are a Final Cut Studio or Avid Studio user, you will have access to the Boris FX title tool. This title tool allows you to create 3D text. In Final Cut Pro, it is called Title 3D. For Avid Users, you'll need to use the Avid FX plugin that is located in your effects palette.

So where are the 3D text features of this program? At first glance, it doesn't appear there are any 3D extrusion features build into the software. The trick is to create a solid shadow.

For Final Cut Pro users navigate to the generators menu and select Boris - Title 3D.

Then click on the controls tab within the 'Viewer Window' and click on the 'Click for Options' box. I also reccomend clicking on the deinterlace filter box. This will help with the quality of your text when it is rendered out.

Title 'Title 3D' box should now open, and you can design your title. The trick is to add a 'Solid Shadow' which will make your highlighted text appear as 3D.

You will find additional controls within the Title 3D window for the opacity, angle, and highlight color of the extrusion.
