old fashioned borders/ backgrounds?

How do I make an old fashioned border in Final Cut? You know, the kind from old movies, when there's titles or chyrons on the screen -- before sound. Thanks!

There were Chyrons before sound!!

Have you looked in Motion for old borders? I wouldn't be surprised if there were some there but frankly I haven't needed to look. There are some old style graphics & templates in DVDSP which are just tifs or jpegs. Find where they are on the drive and try importing into FCP.

No doubt you have already searched the web

I'll take a shot in the dark about what this guy wants, too.

Are you talking about the dialog plates that appear every several seconds in silent movies?

As for Michael suggestion, in your Content Library in Motion you have an Aged Photo Frame that could work. If you just want a vignette type of feel add a feathered mask. Best of luck.
