Hi friends,
i've been asked to put all titles in the project at "146 x 508 px" position..but i'm wondering how..in the sample image my client sent me it's all down-left positioned (as usual for titles) but inserting these coordinates in the control or motion title's tab i cannot get there..some tricks?

Hi Gabriele,
That info is not enough.
The titles may be aligned "Right" "Center" or "Left".
The position you have will be OK for one of those options, but no for the two others.

hi rafel,
the title must be left positioned..still don't get the point..in a 1920x1080 frame, the title jumps far away from the coordinates..

[gabriele gismondi] "the title must be left positioned"
Left positioned is not the same than "left aligned".
Alignment is a property (?) of the text and changing this you will change the position of the text, whatever the "center" (Motion tab) or "origin" (text generator).
Play with the three alignment option.

Just put it where it looks right and ask for feedback.

Your client is asking for the title to be 146 px from the left, and 508 px from the top most likely. Clarify what they mean. Because in FCP the motion tab determines the center of the object from the center of the frame. Completely different from most photoshop type apps that default to the upper left being 0,0. FCP 0,0 is the middle.

What you need is a guide made in photoshop. A vertical line 146 px from the left, and a horizontal line 508 from the top. Then just move your title into position visually.
