New to this list and to Motion. I'm using FCS2 and created a master template in Motion. I was able to access it in FCP and applied it to over 30 interview clips. Now I want to change the font size in the master so it applies to all the lower thirds. I downloaded the manual and it seems to say that font changes in the master apply to all, but when I made changes it screwed up all of them! by adding the default "veteran's name" on top of the name I had entered and moving the second line to a different position.
I am wondering how to save it when I open it and make the changes in Motion, since it opens and untitled file.....I suspect this is where I am going wrong.
Thanks for any help,
Forget the shortcuts; more trouble than they're worth. Just get down and make all of the changes, one at a time. You can format a Word document and copy-paste to save tons of time but even that can be more trouble than the time saved is worth.
However, you want the formatting changes to be approved BEFORE you have to make them all yet again.
There are guidelines for text on screen: glyph size, shadows, colors, outlines. Which standards you need to apply depend on your release media and proposed viewing distances.
