Anyone know how to solve the problem in Boris where if you start with one line of text, duplicate that layer, and add a second line of text, the text shifts up? I'd like to be able to add multiple lines of text where the baseline of the first line stays the same...

Thanks,
Kevin

Kevin,

Which Boris plugin are you using? Is this Title 3D or Graffiti or RED? If the last two, which version? I'd like to reproduce your problem. Also, FCP version, project size would help. What you are describing should not be happening.

I'm using Title3D that comes with FCP. We are running the most recent version of FCP Studio 7 on Leopard. I believe it happens in any resolution.

Easiest way to reproduce problem- say you have a powerpoint style list you want to create. Start with one line of text. Then dissolve into that same 3D text with another line added...they won't match up.

Is there a way to update the title3d plugin? Unless it came with FCP I doubt we have updated it.

Thanks

Kevin,

I'm going to try to reproduce this now.

To be safe can you send me a copy of a test project file displaying the issue.

My e-mail is mattm@borisfx.com

Kevin,

Here is what I found:

I looks like the baseline locks to the "center" of the text block.

So 1 line of text centers your text on the screen. 2 lines of text will push your first line up from the center base and your 2nd line below.

You can change the baseline in the text editor window or simply by using the position X/Y controls in the filter.

I tested this back to FCP 5 and it works the same there.

I'll run it by Boris / Engineering to make sure this is expected behavior but I believe it is.
