Font size problem between Final Cut and AE
on Mar 21, 2014 at 1:41:07 am

I received font specifications for subtitles/lower thirds from a client who was scrubbing through the video in Final Cut over the phone, as I followed along with a Vimeo-hosted video.

I imported the video into After Effects and used the font sizes they gave me, but the fonts came out way too small, about 4X smaller than they should be on-screen.

What could be causing this issue? Are the font sizes measured differently in Final Cut or something?

It shouldn't matter too much. Get a screen grab of a frame from FCP and import into AE. Make a text layer and match sizes.

The problem is caused by difference in resolution (probably). Just use the tip above and you should be fine :-)
