The Text Generators

You can access all the Text tools created from within Final Cut Pro using the Generator pop-up menu, located in the lower-right corner of the Viewer's Video tab. The limitation of using the basic Text tools is that you can use only one font, size, color, and style in each instance of them. Simple titles can be made quickly and easily from them, though, and they contain a subset of tools. The first of these is the Text generator.

Keep in mind that many of the parameters within the Text tools' controls allow you to animate the text, and all the parameters affect all the text with all the Text tools. So with these tools, you cannot change sizes of individual lines or create different colors for different words, for example. However, you can do this by creating different titles for each change you want to see in your final composite and layering these titles on higher video tracks above one another. When you create a title, it behaves like a regular video file as far as how it's edited into a sequence. It appears in the Viewer just as if it were video you captured from videotape.
