Where are the Hex# settings for changing background colours in FCPx?
on Mar 14, 2018 at 12:23:33 am

Hello all,

We just received our style guide from our branding company and need to adjust our background video colours to match. We have hex#s, RGB #s, Pantone, we got it all!

I have a white background up and cannot figure out how to input any of these to adjust.

Anyone have any advice? And hopefully a screenshot of where to click?

Thank you!

Hi Gillian,

I use the generator called 'custom' for backgrounds. In the inspector I can then click on the colour (not the arrow next to the colour box). This brings up the apple colour palette. From the tabs at the top the second one (it has three strips of colour selectors as an icon) is the RGB values selector. From here you can enter precise RGB values, Hex values or, from the drop down, select whether you want to input pantone, cmyk etc.

Hope this helps.

And you can store those color chips in the Apple color palette so you don't need to enter them again.

Hello again,
Thank you so much for your advice. However, I just cannot seem to find the area you are talking about!! Would you happen to have a screenshot or two?

I have attached a screenshot of what I see in the inspector (I did choose the 'custom' generator - so thank you for that!). I cannot seem to change those RGB colours to what they are (mine are in the hundreds and it won't go up that far).



Thank you!

Oh my god. Ridiculous. Always so easy when someone points it out. I clicked everything BUT that.

Thank you to all of you!
