Chapter 16. Titles, Captions, and Credits > Choose a Color for the Lettering

16.2. Choose a Color for the Lettering

By clicking the tiny square beside the word Color, you get a little dialog box known as the Mac OS X Color Picker. (The notes on page 5 describe it in detail.) For now, the important thing is to choose a color that contrasts with the footage behind the lettering. Use white against black, black against white, yellow against blue, and so on.


Note:

iMovie doesn't limit you to TV-safe colors. If colors are too bright (saturated), the edges of the letters can smear and tear when played back on a TV.
