Chapter 12. Using the Title Tools and th... > The Calligraphy Title Tools

The Calligraphy Title Tools

The FCP installation CD has a plugin program written by Boris FX called Calligraphy. Calligraphy is an abbreviated version of Boris's title plugin, Graffiti. Calligraphy contains two more Title generators. You access them from the Generator pop-up menu in the Viewer or from the Effects tab in the Video Generators folder. I feel that the Calligraphy tools are much superior to the older Text tools. The earlier Text tools are included so that you can open project files from earlier versions of Final Cut Pro, and they certainly are useful for a quick title. They also allow you to see your changes over the background video, so they have that advantage.

After they are installed, the Calligraphy tools are named Title 3D and Title Crawl. They can be accessed from the Generator pop-up menu, as shown in Figure 12.11. Figure 12.12 shows the Title 3D Text tool.
