Logo over white background?
on Jul 23, 2013 at 9:28:01 pm

Hi guys, I'm trying to create a white background to place a logo over in FCPX, when i place the logo clip over the background it removes the background and vice versa, any tips here?
The logo is a clip that I dragged to the storyline and resized and added some text to as a connected clip.

There's a Generator to create a white clip.

Put that on the Primary or connect the solid white as a Secondary.

Attach the logo as a Secondary or as a connected clip. Drag a filter onto the logo that will key it. You need there to be a "difference" between the logo and the background for keying to work. Either a difference in color (chroma key) or a difference in brightness (luma key)

When you apply the key to the Logo - it should "knock out" the alpha channel (whatever you selected as the luma or chroma material.) leaving the logo floating over the white background.

If you want to make a compound of the logo plus white, that's fine. Or leave them as separate layers - up to you.

The essential element is that the KEY filter is applied to the foreground clip to allow the white background to show through.

Hope that helps.

The background on the Logo is white also, I thought that if I matched the whites of the white background and the logo background it would work but now the text wont show up.
