LiveType Tips #1

Friday, July 17, 2009

Do you need text in your home video? In LiveType you can create fun text that moves, bounces, changes color, disappears, etc. The text can be created in LiveType and then imported to Final Cut Pro (or Express).

LiveType automatically creates a blank background for you so that you can overlay your text over any movie you want in Final Cut. You can also bring your movie footage into LiveType to preview how the text will look with it before you render your text project.

The Snappy video above was created using the following process:

1. Create the text using LiveType
2. Render the project to be a .mov file
3. Import the file to Final Cut Pro and overlay on the file
4. Export as a Quicktime movie
