newslike crawl
on Sep 5, 2009 at 7:03:05 pm

I'd like to do a"newslike" informational crawl at the bottom of my video where do I find a plugin that facilitates this, or is there a way to do it in FCP-Motion??

Final Cut does this. Open your generators button in the lower right of your viewer, and under text, select crawl.

I would like the text to travel right to left across the bottom of the video, with a border separating it visually from the picture.
I don't see a function like this in FCP or Motion.

It's definitely in Final Cut. Under the generators. Maybe it's a scroll as opposed to a crawl, I always mix the two up. You'll still have to create a banner underneath (like most news channels do) but the left to right text can absolutely be done in FCP.

I would try with the Boris crawl rather than the FCP text tools. You have to select crawl not roll and although I haven't used it in that mode, I am sure you can pick direction.

Like Richard said, you create the strap separately.

Thanks all, I've delved into Boris and by golly it works well.

Better still is Alex Gollner's Text Crawl plugin ... not only does it remove the inherent string length limitations of the built-in plugins but it's also font agnostic, adds a variety of shadow and banner controls plus allows for fixed crawl rates too.

Alex has been putting out a host of new and/or modified plugins over the last months and his collection is well grabbing. Seriously good stuff, and all free.
