FCPX Text Drop Shadow picking up some of the color of the text.
on Jun 14, 2018 at 3:29:40 pm

After adding basic text, I chose a color for it and then put in a drop shadow with the default black color
for the shadow ( as most would use). I'm noticing that there is a cast on the drop shadow of the blue
color I and using on the lettering. WTF? If I want to color my drop shadow I can do that. I don't need FCPX
making decisions for me. Anyone notice this happening or know how to get rid of it?

Thanks

Hi Jory, I just tried to recreate this but I don't see the cast.

For me, the default drop shadow opacity is 75%. Could this be causing the slight color cast you're seeing?

Can you upload a screenshot?

Tried here - no cast. How did you measure the color?

Here you go. As you can see, a blue cast to the drop shadow from the light blue lettering.
Opacity is 100% so it's not coming from anything behind the letters.

OK, I just figured it out.
When you're selecting a color for title lettering on the Color Board
if you use Master, it also colors the drop shadow regardless of
the color you select in the Drop Shadow area.

The same it true of Shadows on the Color Board.
Midtones seems to have no effect on the drop shadow and doesn't
change the lettering color either.

If you use the Highlights to color the lettering, it changes the color
but leaves the drop shadow at the color selected in the Drop Shadow effect
panel.

Case Solved

[Jory Levine] When you're selecting a color for title lettering on the Color Board

You know where to set font color?
And you know when to use the Color Board?

Just found the title color options under FACE.

I was using Color Board - Master which is why I had the drop shadow issue
although I did discover title color change is achievable
without affecting the drop shadow in Color Board by only
using the Highlights adjustment.

All good now.
Thanks
