Motion to FCP Template Text Issue
on Nov 18, 2010 at 11:35:24 am

Hi,

Not sure if this belongs in here or the FCP forum but here goes...

I'm attempting to build a basic template in Motion for use in FCP.
Everything works fine and I can open the template in FCP and then change the text within the template in the viewer.

BUT! When I press return to start a new line of text I get a small vertical line, a bit like an "i" but without the dot. How can I change the template's text content from one line to two without getting this line?

Many thanks,
Patrick

You need to change the text layout to a paragraph with the size you want in Motion.

Thanks, Mark.

I just went back into Motion and added some blank lines under my original line of text.
As long as I don't press return when changing the template's text content in FCP and instead just click on one of the new blank lines it works a treat.

EDIT - Further investigation revealed it was an issue with the font (Gotham Bold) but the above fix was necessary anyway as client specifically requested that typeface.
