How can I edge feather a custom color clip?
on Jul 26, 2015 at 9:21:56 pm

I have some text over image and I wanted a bit of darkness underneath the text so it is more offset from the moving image. I inserted a custom generator that's all black and cropped it to under the text.

The one thing I can't figure out to do is how to edge feather the custom color clip. It doesn't come up in the inspector as an option. How can i do that?

Open the generator in Motion and make sure the edge feather option is being published back to FCPX.

I don't have the newest Motion, only FCP X. Just Motion 4.0.3 that I got when I bought FCP 7 about 5 years ago. Can I still do this?

Drop a Crop & Feather or Draw Mask filter on your generator and adjust accordingly. Don't use the normal inspector crop tools.

I like Oliver's answer, but gotta ask: why not just adjust the drop shadow?

Here's a link to a bunch of free FCPX plugins. Some are for text. Check them out to see if any work for you.

Or if the built in text drop shadow doesn't do it for you, try the seperate drop shadow effect.
