So I have numerous .mp4 exports that I made from FCP projects and exported through Compressor. Each file starts with a quick title card. The original material was used in Brazil and so the title cards were written in Portuguese, though now I need them all to be in English. Ideally, I would just like to change the title card and keep the rest of the file as is, though I am not sure if this is possible.
My back up plan is to go back to the original projects, edit the title card and re-export the whole file, though it would be great if there was a way to avoid re-exporting.
I have heard this may be possible in other programs but not in FCP but I am not even sure how it would be done, so I just wanted to ask.
I wouldn't use FCP for this. It's way old. I'd get another editing application that can handle mp4 without transcoding. Then life get a lot simpler: cut off the old graphic, add the new one and export.

There's no way to export only the title card, and replace that in the already exported files, and save them. The best plan is to go to the original project, with original media...change the cards, and re-export.
