If you are a Final Cut Pro X user, you may find that certain built-in effects and generators are fairly limited in terms of parameters that you can adjust.

For example, the built-in gradient generator doesn't allow you to change colors.

Well, the fix is simple. This tutorial requires that you have Motion 5 installed.  If you have Motion 5, you can make changes to any built-in effect within Final Cut Pro X.  You can then create new effects with all the parameters and adjustments that you need.

I had originally intended to write this article for Final Cut Pro X users.  However, this article will also benefit users who are using Final Cut Pro 7 along with Compressor 3.0.  So please, forgive me a ahead of time if you are not a Final Cut Pro X user.

I was inspired to write this article, because GeniusDV has received support calls from frustrated customers who are having issues exporting high quality video that looks clean on a progressive display.

Don't worry, the steps in this tutorial are identical for Compressor 3.0 and 4.0.

If you're a Final Cut Pro X user, you may have noticed that all the titles, transitions, and filters are actually Motion 5 projects.  When creating title templates, it's important to use Markers in Motion 5 so you can trim your titles in Final Cut Pro X without affecting 'build-in', and 'build-out' effects.

Without this tip, you'll may find it challenging in trying to adjust title templates within the timeline.
