Title/Action Safe grid color change?

Call me blind, but the yellow lines of the title safe grid is impossible to see on my video since my background is almost white. Have they made a way to change this? I have to push my face to the screen to really see the grid. I'm getting a headache!!

On or off is all the control you get I'm afraid.

You might find this free title effect handy for this:

http://www.tokyo-uk.com/fcpxeffects/freedownloads/TKY%20Safe%20Title%20and%...

A Title Effect that give you the option of both a BBC standard Safe Title/Action Overlay and a layout Grid.

The effect (which can be placed like a title layer) above your program has a selector for either the Safe Action/Title (with optional crosshairs) or one of two Grid overlays, either squares or 16:9 aspect ratio rectangles (both of which can be scaled to taste), for accurate positioning of titles and other graphics elements.

There are various controls for the colour of the various elements of the overlays and different components can be switched on/off as desired.

Note that there are a variety of Safe Action/Title effects out there of varying degrees of accuracy. This one adheres strictly to the BBC standard (Safe Action = 80% active width, 93% active height; Safe Title = 65% active width, 90% active height), but the specifics may vary in your territory.

Thank you Simon. I'm a newbie with FCPX so not too clear on how to use this file. I'm not very versed on Motion either. Can you point me to where I might get an explanation on what to do to get it into my project?

I've seen this complaint elsewhere on the web. Apple needs to fix it!

Never mind. I think I got it. Might have to adjust for USA safe zones. Thanks again!

Don't know if you're an FxFactory plugin user Jacquie, but if you are then I've got a free Safe Guides generator plugin that you could use. http://andymees.wordpress.com/safe-guides/

Cheers
Andy
