Lesson 19. Adding Text and Graphics > Adding Motion Effects to Text

Adding Motion Effects to Text

One of the most frequently used effects you can add to text is a drop shadow. In Final Cut Pro, this function is located in the Motion tab of the Viewer. You may want to use other motion effects to resize or reposition a graphic or text clip. You can also add motion keyframes to a text or graphic clip to create a motion path, just as you did in the previous lesson.

TIP

Always resize a text clip in the Controls tab using the Size slider, not on the Motion tab using the Scale slider. Using Scale will make the text look pixilated.
