create readable titles
on Apr 6, 2010 at 9:58:36 pm

Hello FCP forum,

I am trying to create readable titles in FCP using the Boris 3D
title crawl plug-in that ships with FCP.

I have a long list of credits for the end of my project, I want to keep the text
in the "title" safe area more or less. The final output is destined for DVD via DVD Studio Pro.

The end credits are much like what we see at the end of a film, with lots of info.

My problem is that the titles are not really readable! I am using a 4:3 aspect ratio,
and a font that is risky to use, I have two font sizes for the text, one size is 16 point bold,
with the Plantagenet Cherokee font, and the other font, more title friendly, Hypatia Sans Pro, at 12 point.

I really do not want to use a font that is 24 point, etc. But I would like the text to be somewhat readable. Is this something that FCP cannot really do? I have about 25 lines of text that fills the title safe area at the current font sizes.

Any suggestions here? I would like the rolling titles to look like they do in a real (reel?) movie.

Thanks for a great forum resource,
